Altenew November 2021 Sparkle and Shine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

5 November 2021

Welcome to the Sparkle and Shine Blog Hop and Giveaway. If you have hopped over from Kari VanNoy's blog you are right on track. You can start the hop over on the Altenew Blog.

For this hop I created two projects. My first is a DIY box created with the Note For You Stamp and Die Bundle. This bundle is perfect for creating cute little treat boxes and will come in handy with the holiday season around the corner. 

To create a similar box you will have to trim some of the sides of the centre panels of the box to make them a little thinner. I used florals from the Calming Bouquet Washi tape as embellishment and added a dainty border cut out with the Creative Edges Lace Die. 

To soften the border of the lace die, I added a strip of thin washi tape from the Cherry Blossom Thin Washi Tape Set. This strip goes all around the box given it cohesive look.
My second project is a card created with the Swatches Stencil and the new Frozen Delights Crisp Ink Set. I love the pastel colours in this set. 

I used the Home Sweet Home Stamp Set to add detail, stamping some potted plantes over the colour swatch panels. This stencil can be used for cards but also for creating your customs colour swatches with altenew inks or paints. 

What has caught your eye? I'd love to know. Just pop a comment in the comment section.
