Altenew February 2022 Flowers & Swirls Collection Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello friends ! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating their latest release.

The first cad I have features the Magnolia Ballerina Stamp/Die/Stencil Set.

I left the outline of the image off and just used the stencil to ink blend on some color. Kind of has a no-line feel to it.

I used the coordinating die to cut out the image and added it to a card base that I lightly ink blended with the same blue shades.

Next we have this gorgeous Starlight Die. I die cut it multiple times from white cardstock and added the final layer with matte gold cardstock.

My background is using the Dotted Starburst (one of my old favorites) where I lightly ink blended on some pink.

Next we have the Dainty Leaves die. I see this being used on multiple projects in the future.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!
