Altenew March Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway


Today I'm participating Altenew March Release Blog Hop. If you came from Evelyn Yusuf blog, you are on the right track. If not, please start at the beginning of Altenew's blog.

Altenew is releasing a wonderful set of new stamps and dies. I played a little with Garden Treasure stamp and Garden Treasure die set and made this wedding card for my collaque. Firstly, I stamped the flowers with Altenew Blush Crisp Die Ink onto a copic friendly card stock. Then coloured the flowers with copic markers and coloured pencils. I used a square die to die cut the two pieces of card stock that I use to create the background. I used Cherry Wood card stock and the same card stock that I used for my card base. I wanted to have to something light and beautiful on the background as well so I stamped a few leaves from an older stamp set called Precious Moments, I stamped the sentiment from Ori kami set with Altenew Jet Black Crisp die ink.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Thursday, March 30th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Friday, March 31th.

30 Coloring Challenge


It's March already, time flies doesn't it? Have you heard about Kathy's 30 day colouring challenge? I believe this challenge is one of the best ones, it encourages you to color which is so therapeutic, at least for me! If you want to join in the fun, just color something and share it on the social media. Easy and fun! Many companies are also running promotions, if you are interested what Altenew is offering, please, see the end of this blog post. There's a fun blog hop running though the 10th of this month! 

I used Altenew stamps for my project. Actually this card was custom made for a girl whose name is Maj. I used Remember This- stamp set. I used Altenew Frosty Pink Ink to stamp my flowers and for the leaves I used Altenew Morning Frost Ink. I coloured the flowers and the leaves first with copic markers and then added details with pencils. I die cut the letters using Bold Alphabet Die set. I cut six times each of the letters, coloured one of the letters to match to my flowers with a copic marker and then glued them together. For my finishing touch I added a piece of Altenew Pale Grey card stock at the bottom of my card and stamped the sentiment under the die-cut letters.
