Altenew April 2023 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello friends! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating the April 2023 Marvelous Monthly Series.

My cards today are featuring the Craft Your Life Project Kit Engraved Motifs.

I’ve been having fun with Kraft cardstock lately. It has such a unique look compared to blending and stamping on white.

Here I stamped my image from Engraved Motif stamp set in Mangrove Root Ink using the Stamp Wheel. Then ink blended the coordinating stencil using the Deep Blue Seas and Tropical Forest ink collection.

After ink blending, I stamped the outline again using Obsidian ink since I left the stamp in my Stamp Wheel.

I trimmed out the image with the coordinating die and then went to work on my background.

Again, I’m using Kraft cardstock and ink blended on Tide Blue ink with a Large Blending Tool. I flicked on white paint and gold metallic paint.

I popped up my image onto the card front using foam tape for dimension.

The sentiments come from the Engraved Motifs stamp set. I stamped them both in Obsidian ink onto Kraft cardstock and added to the front of the card with foam tape.

I finished off with a few gold sequins for shine.
