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.


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, February 14th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 2/16/2018.


I will each draw a winner to receive a $30 gift certificate. All you have to do is leave a comment by Febraury 13th. What has caught your eye? I'll announce the winner here on my blog on the 14th.

Next stop is Dana Gong.

Altenew: Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom *GIVEAWAY*

17 January 2018

HELLO everyone.

Today I'm sharing the new Altenew Build-a-flower set. Every month Altenew release a new set which is composed of a stamp set and a coordinating die. I'll also be giving away a gift voucher. Scroll down to find out more.

This month's flower is the Sakura Blossom.

The Sakura blossom is a lovely Japanese flower, and is known as a cherry blossom in some parts of the world. "Sakura" is derived from the Japanese word for "bloom" - "saku." In the United States, tourists travel to our capital, Washington D.C., to see the flowers bloom at the annual cherry blossom festival. This stamp set features layered cherry blossoms and leaves, and the accompanying die have score details to help you create 3D flowers.

I created two cards with the set:

For my first card I just used the leaf stamps and used two colours from the Tropical Forest Mini ink cube set. I them stamped the sentiment in permanent black ink on top.

For my second card I stamped a couple of flowers using the Cherry Blossom ink set and for the centre I used some Razzleberry embossing ink. I added a heart shape cut out using one of the Heart nesting die and opted for some Birch wood speciality paper from Altenew. I just love the variation of sentiments on this set. 

  1. Leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog or/and Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win one of four $30 gift certificates. Winners will be announced on January 26th on both blogs. (Two winners chosen from the card blog post, two winners chosen from the scrapbook blog post.)
  2. HERE: Leave a comment before January 25th and win a 20$ gift voucher to the Altenew store.
Thank you so much for your support and for stopping by.

Happy Scrapping.
