Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Dahlia Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

7 July 2020


Welcome to July's Craft-A-Flower Dahlia Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Virginia Lu's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.



The Craft-A-Flower sets are such fun and I especially like this one because of it's larger bloom. I used a subtle patterned paper from the Celebrate 6X6 paper pad and added some older cardstock papers in terracotta and pink colours.


I started by layering the darkest shade, then the lightest and then the in-between colour. For the leaves I went with some hand-painted ones to contrast with the die-cut flower.

To finish the card off, I added a sentiment stamped on to a label from the Dot Labels Stamp Set and popped some enamel dots on. 

Prizes:

Altenew + Pinkfresh Studio “Celebrate” Collaboration Blog Hop Details + Giveaway

26 June 2020


Welcome to the June 2020 Collaboration Blog Hop with Pink Fresh Studio.  If you have come from Jung AhSang's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

The Celebrate collection is fun and above all is full of floral images and designs. It is perfect for documenting any occasion. I love anything floral and even though I only have sons I put florals on everything. The colours are right up my alley.  

I created two 12x12 layouts. 


The first layout combines a watercolour washed background 12x12 paper that I broke up by adding a vertical strip of floral paper and some torn washi tape. I then cut out a floral shape from one of the 6x6 papers and added some die cut embellishments. So easy and quick to make. 


The die cut elements are varied and make crafting super easy. I love that there are several types of embellishments ranging from arrows, frames to floral images.



For my second layout, I used the Celebrate Today Stamp set and stamped it onto a colourful 6x6 paper. I used the coordinating die to cut it out. 



I wanted to keep it simple to focus on the lovely floral bouquet on the "Celebrate This Story" patterned paper. 


You can see how I created this layout in the video below.

For today's release I went for a slightly different take on watercolouring. I picked out a lovely green cardstock and embossed one of the floral image with Altenew White Embossing Powder. Then I used the Altenew Metallic Watercolours to colour the images. 


I love how sparkly the images are. 


Stamping two images in opposite corners is a great way of getting a balanced card.

Altenew June 2020 Stand-alone Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

17 June 2020




Welcome to the June 202O Stand Alone Die Release Blog Hop. If you have come from Norine Borys 's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop on the Altenew Card Blog


For today's hop I created a couple of projects:


Card 1:

I used the Leaf Border Die to create a fun colourful card. This card is super easy to make but packed with colour. The rainbow washi tape gives it an extra kick.


For my next card I combined the Bold Thanks and Rose Wreath with more fun washi tape. Once again it is a very simple card.




My last project is a layout. This one was made with the Spring Roses Die Set. It took me a little longer to create as I had to cut out all the patterned paper to back the die cuts. 


As I had my washi tapes out I also used them on this project. 




Prizes:

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Tulip Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

15 June 2020



Welcome to the Craft-A-Flower Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from blog of the amazingly talented Virginia Lu  then you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog. 

Altenew has started a new subscription package called the Craft-a-Flower. These sets are released monthly and celebrate the beauty of a wide variety of flowers! Each set includes all the pieces you need to create a multi-layered floral arrangement, inspired by our popular 3D flower dies. All you need to add is coloured cardstock and a die cutting machine.

This month the TULIP is being featured.



This is a card I created with the set. I decided to use patterned papers instead of gradient coloured cardstock and also went with a different look for the leaves. 

For the leaves I didn't add the layering pieces as I really wanted the polka dot pattern to shine. For the tulip flower itself I chose some pink and red patterned paper. I love the look of the black and the pink/red flower.  

What I really love about these sets is that you can create a more traditional look or go in a completely different direction. The possibilities are endless. 

Prizes:

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog for a chance to win.

Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Anemone Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

22 May 2020


Welcome to this month’s Paint-a-Flower Release Blog Hop. This is your last stop on the hop. If you have missed the other stops, you can start the hop on the https://altenewblog.com/PAF-Anemone.



I have loved all the PAF sets and have enjoyed colouring them with my watercolours. Today were are also releasing refills for the Altenew Artist Markers so I decided to use my markers to colour the image. 

I started by stamping the floral image with Obsidian Black ink and let it dry a couple of hours. Then I pulled out some of my favourite Artist Markers and started colouring.

Once I had finished colouring the image, I cut it out by hand. I took a piece of patterned paper from the Summer Garden 6X6 paper pack. I also pulled out a striped patterned paper and drew a border around the edge with the Grape Vine Artist Marker.

Assembling the card was super easy and all I had to do was add a sentiment and some pretty seauins.
