Altenew June 2023 Stamps, Dies, Stencils and More Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello friends! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop today sharing inspiration using the June 2023 release!

I am head over heels in love with the Orange Blossoms. I wonder if it’s using orange cardstock or maybe it’s the citrus feel that makes me so happy. Either way, it’s an amazing set to create with!

I added my orange blossoms to a background I created by ink blending on Dew Drops and Aqualicious ink from the Sweet Dreams collection using a Large Blending Brush.

Then I added white splatters and teal splatters from the Metallic Watercolor set.

The sentiment comes from the Encouraging Sentiment Hot Foil collection. I used the Altenew Brushed Gold Foil which is amazing!

I also added Yellow Enamel Dots to the centers of my flowers for some fun!

Next I have a card featuring the Bird Of The Mountain die set. These have those arrows in the die so it makes lining up the image super easy!

I was inspired to create a teal bird since I had teal inks out.

For the background, I used the Moroccan Tile Embossing Folder and added Aqualicious Ink over the top.

I also die cut out one of the Ornate Nesting shapes from White cardstock as a landing place for my bird.

I finished off with a sentiment from the Encouraging Sentiments set.
