Altenew February 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

7 February 2018

HELLO and welcome to the Altenew February release blog hop.  If you have come from Create & Craft TV Blog you are right on track.

For today's hop I decided to use the Happy Bloom set and the Birds of a feather set.
I used the first for my layout and created a simple card with the sweet birds.


I stamped the images with some permanent black ink which I left to dry overnight, just to make sure it wouldn't bleed when I coloured it. I used Altenew markers to colour the images. For dimension I popped the flowers onto foam dots. 


For a bit of sparkle and flow I adhered some sequins to the page and also added some butterflies for movement. Those of you who have been following me for a while know how much I love butterflies.
I also added a little cluster in the bottom right hand corner for balance.


For my card I kept it really simple. I stamped the bird with some of the new inks from the Green Meadows and Sweet Dreams set. I used a blue marker to add dots to the background for some interest.

Annalisa Young said...

Oh, I love all that white space on your scrapbook layout. It really allows the eye to be led by the flowers. And conversely, I think it was a really good idea to put the dots on the background of your card, because it just adds such a nice texture behind the bold bird. Thanks for sharing some lovely ideas with us!

Dana M said...

Beautiful projects! The red and purple color combination is just stunning!

Michelle H said...

Your layout made me smile. I love the detail of the little flowers around the date. Just an overall beautiful design. And your bird card was cute too.

Glenda said...

Sewn With Love is still my favourite but Happy Blooms and Ornamental Blossom is right behind in close seconds along with A Crafty Life. Those birds are also gaining more ground the more I go through the hop - LOL! It is so great to see all the ideas and the Altenew Inks are absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful layout and giving such a great idea to use as a backdrop with simple dots as you did for your Bird card.

beautiful creations...love the layout...

Jackie said...

Beautiful creations!! Love the cheery colours you used. And what a fabulous layout with the sequins trailing to the bottom corner where there's another flower and brings the page together. And your background on your card is awesome!! Never would have thought that dots could look so amazing,lol. It creates a lovely sky background for the bird. Love it and will have to try it sometime (probably on a note size card as I think I might get bored too quickly to do a larger size, lol)

Judie said...

Stunning layout and gorgeous card! Thanks for the inspiration!

Sarah Nelson said...

Adding butterflies to the flowers on your scrapbook layout was such a sweet touch. And the bird...he’s so stinking cute!

TinyCrafter said...

I love your petty flowers! I love flowers but we have mutant ninja squirrels in our yard and they always seem to ruin them for me. That's what I love about stamping. The mutant ninja squirrels can't ruin my stamped flowers! LOL
Like you, I love butterflies. It makes me sad to hear they are becoming extinct. I plant Lantan's in my yard and it's the Butterly flower but only a few tiny butterflies are attracted to it. Your tiny butterflies remind me of the ones that come in my yard only mine are a little smaller. I have a lot of butterfly stamps and I don't have a die cutter but I might have a punch. Your little butterflies are sp precious and they looks like they could just fly away! You added just the right amount of sequins.
I love your colorful bird! The coloring is very pretty on the bird and the tree branches. I love those new stamp colors! I might have to pick some up!
Thank you for showing us your pretty things and for giving us the chance to win something.

Beautiful cards! Thank you.
