Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

3 April 2020




Welcome to Altenew's 6th Anniversary Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have over from Simon Says Stamp then you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Blog.

I have been on the Altenew Design Team for nearly 4 years and I still love crafting with their products. I have discovered new products and my love for stamping has grown ever since. Using Altenew products is such fun and every month I'm overjoyed to discover and use their new products. 

Times are a bit aery and scary at the moment and having this crafting community is really important for me. Crafting is keeping me sane. 




For today's hop, I created two projects using the Wild Flora Stamp and Die Set and the coordinating Washi Tape.

I created the flowers of this card on one of my Live session on Altenew's YouTube Channel. All I had to do was pop them on a card and add a sentiment. 




I used the Essential Watercolor Pan Set and the Metallic Watercolor Set to colour the flowers. Stamping an image and then water colouring it is so calming, especially in these difficult times. 

My second project is an 8.5"x11" layout. I used two washi tapes for this layout:

  • Wild Flora Washi Tape
  • Gold Splatter Navy Washi Tape
I cut out the floral shapes using the coordinating dies and for the flowers that had no die, I hand cut them.



The Gold Splatter Navy Washi Tape is the grounding colour which I added to the bottom of the cardstock. The flowers pop out of the top part. To break up the blue I added some typed journaling strips. 



I love the dainty look of the flowers and they were really easy to cut out with the coordinating dies.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Iris & Watercolor Essential Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

22 March 2020





Welcome to the Paint A Flower Iris Release. If you have hopped over from Norine Borys's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.


I am really enjoying the Paint a Flower sets. They help me practise my colouring skills. For this set, I used the new Watercolor Essential Set. 

I created a simple stamped card and went with the classic colours one would associate with an iris. I mixed colours to create a purple colour I wanted to use. The watercolours mix easily. This is an excellent set to start water colouring. 


I'm really happy with how the colours turned out especially the yellow centres. I added a couple of ink splatters and sequins for extra detail and pops of colours.

You can see how I created this card in the video below.

Altenew March 2020 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

17 March 2020

Welcome to the March 17th 2020 blog hop and giveaway. If you have come from Nicole Watt's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop on Altenew Card Blog.

Today's release is AMAZING. As a scrapbooker, I LOVE patterned papers and these 6X6 Paper Packs are STUNNING. The bright colours are perfect for Spring which is just around the corner. 
In Belgium, we are currently being urged to stay home so having some pretty papers to craft with is ideal to keep busy. 
For today's hop, I created a pocket page to go with the layout I created for the Altenew Scrapbook Blog. 

I cut out the papers to fit my pockets and created embellishments but cutting out flowers from the patterned papers. I love the versatility of a pretty paper. 

By layering patterns, I was able to create different looks that still work together. It is really easy to do and I love the look of a double-page spread. 

You can see how I created this layout in the video below or watch it in HD on Youtube.
