Altenew April 2022 Gardens Around The World Collection Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello friends! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating their Gardens Around the World release. I have lots of inspiration to share with you.

One of my favorites from the release is the Morning Flowers stamp set.

It has a very whimsical look to it.

I chose some bright colors for my flowers and then ink blended a background with Coral Bliss and Warm Sunshine using a blending brush.

I flicked the background with some gold metallic watercolor.

This card also features the Morning Flowers set but this time for the background, I lightly ink blended with a light blue.

I stamped this butterfly in a light grey ink using the Meadow Reflections stamp.

Another favorite of mine from the release is the Castle Garden set where I heat embossed the image and then ink blended over the top.

Before attaching this gorgeous set onto a card front, I stamped the image in a light grey ink onto the card front.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! I loved creating with these sets!
