Altenew August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hi friends! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating their latest release Bold & Beautiful!

My first card is featuring one of my favorites from the release and that is the Dazzling Dahlia.

I’m always drawn to dahlia sets an this one also includes this sweet little hummingbird.

I started by stamping it in a light brown ink and then ink blending over the top with the coordinating stencil.

This gives almost a no-line look.

So soft and pretty!

The next card features the Happy Flowers stamp and die. I went bold for this one by adding the flowers to black cardstock.

The soft pink really pops against the black.

Hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!


 These blog hops are not required of me. Altenew invites me as a guest and I am able to choose what I want to work with. So the product I’m featuring is something that really stood out to me. I choose more or less products depending on my schedule. I just wanted you to know, if I’m creating with it – I love it!


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 08/10/2022 for a chance to win. 

Altenew will draw 10 winners randomly from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 08/11/2022.


The party starts on the Altenew blog.

If you arrived from Bobby Hagen’s blog you are in the right spot.

Your next stop in the hop will be Teri Wilson.
