Altenew July Stamp and Die Release Blog hop and Giveaway

19 July 2018

Welcome to the July 2018 Release Blog Hop. If you have come from Svitlana Shayevich's blog, then you are right on track.
For today's Blog Hop I created two layout for my personal blog. For the first I used the Circle Embroidery Hoop Die paired with the Embroidered Blooms Stamp set. 
I cut out the embroidered circle out of a thin cork sheet. I created my own flowered background with the Embroidered Flowers set and cut out some flowers but also used it to created the hoop around the cork circle.

I made a hoop with a cork interior and one with the flower patterned interior. I used some gold speciality paper from Altenew for the hoop screws.


Some enamel dots finish off the layout.


My next project was a mini book made with the Oval Embroidery hoop. I also created some stitched butterflies using the Cross Stitch Die. 

 I coloured some flowers from the Botanical Garden Set using the Alcohol markers from Altenew.
For the inside pages I kept things simple using white cardstock and some patterned paper or patterned paper elements.
