Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Fragrant Florals Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello friends! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in celebrating their latest Craft Your Life Project Kit: Fragrant Florals. We have tons of inspiration and giveaways for you today, so be sure to hop along!

I have a video for this card but unfortunately did not have enough time to finish before leaving for NAMTA so hopefully I can finish it when I return in a few days.

I will say, this may be my favorite kit from Altenew so far!! I absolutely love it and I think you will too!

Here’s a look at two cards I created using the kit. One in which I ink blended over the embossed image using the embossing folder and the other where I die cut the image out.

This first card I where I stamped the image in Sand Dunes ink which is a light brown. This gives a no line look to the image once colored.

Next, I used the stencil and added color to my image using Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Grass Fields, Shadow Creek and Chamomile.

I die cut the image out with the coordinating die and also die cut out 3 more pieces of white cardstock. I layered them together with tape to build up dimension.

I stamped the sentiment in black ink and added my die cut layer to the front of the card, trimming off any excess hanging off the side.

For this next card, I embossed the front of my card using the embossing folder.

Then using the stencil again, I added the same colors previously listed.

Check out that detail!
