Altenew Storybook Fantasy Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Cheerful Rainbow Colored Library Bookshelves

Hi there, I am so happy you stopped by!
Rainbow colored library bookshelves.

Today we’re celebrating the Storybook Fantasy release and I have two cards to share using some of  Altenew's new stamps, dies and an embossing folder! If you arrived from Reiko's Blog, you’re right on track. If you want to start from the beginning, visit the Altenew Card Blog. Be sure to scroll to the bottom for details about the hop, giveway, free gifts and images of the full release.  Rainbow colored bookshelves

Today's card was so much fun to make...sometimes it is great to just sit down and color!  When I first saw this Tall Tale stamp set, I knew I wanted a cheerful rainbow colored library.  I love how happy this stamp is...perfect for birthday and get well cards.  

I stamped and colored three bookshelves and colored with Artist Markers Set F and G.   I wanted lots of shelves on this card so I used the Nesting Slim Rectangle Dies to make a slimline card.  I then cut the bookshelves to make the four shelves.  The Nesting Rectangles make it so easy to make a slimline card. The cut panel is 3 1/2" wide and 8 1/2” tall.  

Here is a graphic of all the stamps included in the wonderul Tall Tale Stamp Set. 

Ink Blending on 3D Embossing 

Yellow ink blending on dry embossing.
For my second card, I used the  Majestic Blooms 3D Embossing Folder.  After I dry embossed my panel, I used my Large Ink Blending Tool and Warm Sunshine Ink to gently go over the top of the embossing.  I then used my Small Embossing Tool to add a second coat on the highest points. 

I die-cut the Fancy Celebrate Die from black mirror cardstock.  This embossing folder has a gorgeous large image so I created a 6x6 card.  I finished off with  yellow enamel dots from the   New Day Collection.  I like that the set has a rainbow of colors that go with any project.
