Altenew January Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway

27 January 2017

Hello everyone. If you are following the hop you should have just been at Erum Tasneem  blog. (Isn't her work amazing). Today is release day and oh my isn't everything so gorgeous. I chose to work with 3 sets and created three layouts for you but first: DON'T FORGET TO COMMENT because there are prizes up for grabs :

On the Altenew blog:
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, February 2nd at 11:59 PM EST for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Saturday, February 4th.
HERE on my blog:
I'll also draw a winner to receive a $30 gift certificate. The winner will be announced on my blog by Saturday, February 4th at 8:00AM EST.

These are the stamps I used:


Here are the layouts I created:

I was so excited to see an ink splash set. It is such a versatile set and I made the focal point of my layout. I also cut out images from photos, something I have never done before but I like the way it looks. 



The "Let the Wind Carry you" is such a whimsical set. I created a lot of floating bubbles using the set on this dotted patterned paper from the Reflection kit. Not my usual style but it is so light, airy and dreamy. 



For this layout I used the Artist markers to colour the flowers. They are amazing and the colours are so vibrant.




 There you have it. Lots to see and so many new products. I always have a hard time choosing. What are your favourites?

Your next stop is:

Emily Leiphart. I love her work ... so delicate and sweet.

And here is the full list. Have fun hopping.
