Altenew + The Daily Marker Color Therapy Blog Hop & Giveaway

18 November 2019




Altenew is collaborating with the amazing Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker to inspire crafters to find joy through colouring. Kathy is celebrating her 14th 30 Day Coloring Challenge until the end of November 2019.

If you have hopped over from LauraJane's Blog you are right on track. You can start the hop on the Altenew Card Blog.


I have always loved colouring and have fond memories of sitting outside with a colouring book as a child. To this day I still enjoy the process as it helps me unwind from hectic days. For today's hop, I created a card using the Dainty Blooms Cover Die. I partially die cut the shape making sure my cardstock was thicker than usual. This will ensure that the die doesn't cut all the way through. 


Once I had my image I started colouring in the flowers and leaves with Altenew Artist Markers. I used the Artist Markers Set D.




I kept the sentiment very simple by creating a sentiment strip using a sentiment from the Love Letters Stamp Set. 


If you want hop over and participate in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge by coloring something and share it on social media using the hashtag #thedailymarker30day. We hope you find “Me Time” and enjoy the benefits that coloring will give.

Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and Kathy from The Daily Maker is also giving away her 5”x7” original watercolour artwork (including a custom frame). Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog by 11/22/2019 for a chance to win.

Awesome coloring! And I love the idea of partial die-cutting giving the look of inlaid die-cutting! :)

Susan B. said...

Gorgeous! I have that die and never thought of using it this way. Thanks!

Kerry M said...

Beautiful job! Love the detail of the strokes in each petal and leaf

Barbara said...

The card is beautiful and what a fun use of the cover die. I love this idea!

Nox said...

Beautiful - I do also love that it has this stained art look to it too - like there are discrete panels of colour!

I love the idea of the partial die cut. It makes the flowers 🌸 pop off the page.
Thank you for sharing your card and being part of the hop!

Extremely cool idea. Makes it looks like stained glass, but also like that Dutch folk art with the flowers (don't know the name). I love your color choices and the layering of the pinks.

What a fun way to showcase that background die! I really like the way you can see the strokes on your flower petals and the shades of green that you used on the leaves.

Karen said...

Very pretty card. I love how you cut into the paper rather than cutting it out completely. I'll have to try that. I love the look you got.

Helen said...

So beautiful, Lilith! I love the idea of colouring the partial die cut and how eye-catching the results are! I must give it a try! Thanks so much for sharing and inspiring!

Joyce Verdon said...

Oh how pretty. I have an Altenew die I haven’t used yet... think I’ll try this method of impressing the image! Love the look you created!

Cindy C. said...

Oh so fun and pretty!!

Cindy C. said...

So fun and pretty!!

Kristina said...

Interesting how you used the die to do more embossing type, then color around it. It almost takes on a stained glass look; quite lovely. Thank you for sharing your talents!

Amanda Steele said...

Wow. I think this is the first time where I've seen this technique of die cutting but not all the way through. That jigsaw puzzle effect is STUNNING and so easy to do. The colouring would have most likely taken you more time but I love how you did this. So pretty. Thanks for sharing this with us.

V. K. said...

Love the effect of the partial die-cutting. It makes such a beautiful design. Love the colors!

Gracegarden said...

Great color choices. The sharing is amazing.

Dana M said...

What a striking and beautiful card! Lovely coloring and fabulous design.

Heidi Rees said...

Beautiful card! I love the colors and how the image fills the whole card, I bet that was so fun to color!

Needle & Paper said...

Love it Lilith! I haven’t work with copics yet...I know, shame on me. But your work is so inspiring, I might pick a few to get me started.
Thanks for sharing.
Cheers!
