Altenew May 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway *closed*

25 May 2017


Welcome to a new release from Altenew. I was over the moon when I found out that Altenew was going to release embossing powders. THEY ARE AMAZING.

I created three layouts for this hop and I think your'll see which stamp is my new favorite (Halftone hearts) . I stamped and then embossed some of the hearts with clear embossing powder. I then cut them out. The white embossing powder is fabulous and really crisp. I took the sentiment I LOVE YOU and embossed it onto some black cardstock. 

                      



For the next layout I used several stamps. I used the 365 stamp set to stamp a border and created a background with the Pattern Play Diamond stamp set and the Watercolor Frame set. I also embossed with the butterflies with Translucent Pearl. They turned out so sparkly.
                        






For my last layout I went back and got the heart stamp back out. I just couldn't resist. I added a text stamp from the Layered letters AFG stamp set. I created my own wood and epoxy button using ink, a punch and some clear embossing powder. 





Prizes:


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, June 1st at 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Saturday, June 3rd. I'll pick a winner on July 1st.

I will also draw a winner to receive a $30 gift certificate. All you have to do is tell what your favorite release item is.
