Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Vintage Tapestry Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

 I am thrilled to be part of this fun hop featuring the newest Craft Your Life kit: Vintage Tapestry from Altenew. I am a big fan of all things vintage and this kit certainly is a grand example. You can start the hop on the Altenew Card Blog. If you are following the hop, you should have arrived from the super talented Erum Tasneem's blog.

Vintage beauty in a classic style! Create gorgeous vintage print-inspired projects using this Vintage Tapestry kit! This kit contains a beautiful 3-dimensional embossing folder, a 6x8 layering stamp set, a 4-piece layering stencil set, and a matching die set to cut all the pieces from the stamp set and the layering stencil set.

I made for cards for this fun hop. The SugarPlum, Tranquility and Fall Harvest Ink sets were perfect to the vibe I was going for.

The stencil set in this one is amazing! I had so much fun creating these vines using the Tranquility and Fall Harvest Ink sets. After the flower vines were stenciled, I die cut them with the coordinating die. I started the base with a mini slimline card base (3.5 x 6.25) cut from Cougar 80 lb. Natural Cardstock. The background is a piece of watercolor cardstock trimmed to be 1/4 in smaller all around. I used the deepest blue from the Tranquility set, smooshed on my craft mat and picked up with a wet watercolor bush to create a line near the top of the watercolor piece. I continued to add ink and water to get the ink to form drips down the base. I added splatters with the Fall Harvest and Tranquility inks.

The Hello is from the Tiny Sentiments: Hello Die. I cut 2 sentiments out and layered them.

After gluing the watercolor base onto the Cougar base, I arranged three of the floral vines to cascade down the front making sure the top was hidden by the Hello Die cut.

This card was created by embossing the Vintage Tapestry 3D folder onto Curious Metallic Lustre Cardstock. I love using these shimmer cardstocks for embossed images. Using the Vintage Tapestry Stencil, color was blended onto the embossed image. Once colored, I attached it to the Cougar A2 Cardbase. The sentiment is from Vintage Tapestry Layering Stamp set, stamped on a matching circle and popped up.

We needed a little bling here, so I covered the flower center on the left with Glossy Accents and added some bling from my stash!

I love the sweetness of this fun layered card. I cut a piece of Cougar 80 lb. White Cardstock to 4.0 by 5.25 inches and used my Dotted Lines Debossing Cover Die to add texture.

I cut a three circles from Curious Metallic Super Gold Cardstock and layered to provide a base for the flowers. After attaching the debossed base to the A2 cardbase, I layered the circles and glued them together.

The So Grateful sentiment from the Essential Sentiment set is cut from the same gold cardstock and applied after the circle of flowers was added.

These gorgeous roses are stamped with images from the Vintage Tapestry Layering Stamp Set.

How did I do that frame you may be asking. I did a video earlier showing how I created these fun frames. Check it out HERE. After creating the window, I backed it with Cougar 80 lb white Cardstock die cut using the Layered Kaleidescope Cover Die A.

I attached the frame cover to an A2 cardbase and arranged the roses and leaves on top. The sentiment is stamped using a sentiment stamp from the Vintage Tapestry Stamp set.
