Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Camellia Waterhouse Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome everyone! I’m thrilled to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating the release of the new Paint-A-Flower Camellia Waterhouse.

I have a simple card project for you today featuring this set.

While this is a gorgeous set to color in your favorite coloring medium, I thought it would make a great background.

I ink blended a panel of white cardstock using Hydrangea, Turquoise and Parrot inks from Altenew using a blending brush.

Then I repeatedly stamped the floral image on the background with black ink.

I finished off the card with a sentiment heat embossed in white on black cardstock and trimmed out with a circle.


$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 01/28/2022 for a chance to win. 

Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 01/30/2022.


If you arrived here from Jenny Colacicco’s blog you are in the right spot.

Your next stop will be Erum Tasneem.

If you get lost along the way, be sure to head to the Altenew blog to start at the beginning.
