Altenew Cards

Altenew 9th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway (Over $2,200 In Prizes!)

Hello crafty friends! I’m so excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating their 9th Anniversary! How awesome is that!? We have inspiration to share with you and some amazing prizes!

I created a brand new card for today and it is featuring the Build-A-Garden Pristine Peonies bundle.

I started by stamping the image with Limestone ink using my Stamp Wheel. Then to color in the flower I used ONE color of ink for all the layers and that color is Baby Pink.

I used a small blending brush and different amounts of pressure so get three different shades.

For the leaves I used Limeade and Fresh Leaf ink.

I die cut out the image and added to an A2 card front that I lightly ink blended with the same Baby Pink and a large blending brush.

The sentiment comes from the Versatile Greetings Hot Foil set. I foiled it in gold and die cut out with the coordinating die. My peonies are popped up from the card front with foam tape for a little dimension.

Next I have a card that I’ve shared before on my blog but it’s one of my favorites.

This card features the Craft Your Life Watercolor Flowers.

I love working with Altenew products and the variety of images they have to offer. Now check out these prizes!
