Altenew May Release Blog Hop


Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew May Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Altenew Blog, then you are on the right track. If not head back over there, as you won't want to miss anything!

There are 16 new fabulous stamp sets and 10 dies being released today and they are now available for purchase at the Altenew online store.

To celebrate this release, Altenew will draw three lucky winners who will each receive a $50 gift certificate to their online store. Just leave a comment on the Altenew Blog, by Thursday, May 19, 11:59pm EST for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on Friday, May 20.

In addition, one winner will be chosen from the comments left on this blog post and will receive a $30 gift certificate!


Now onto my projects. Today, I made two cards using brand new and gorgeous floral sets. As you have probably noticed, I love floral stamps, so I was really happy and excited when I first saw the new release!

thank you 1

For my first card, I stamped images from Majestic Bloom set in two shades of green (Evergreen and Forest Glades inks) to create a floral wreath. Then, I drew a few little flowers with a pink marker and added green splatters here and there. To finish my card, I used the new coordinating die set and I cut the “thank you” sentiment out of black cardstock.

thank you 2


For my second card I used set called Spring Daisy.

I am here for you 1

I stamped my floral arrangement in black and then I used solid stamps to add some colour to it. I used here Lavender Fields ink for flowers and two greens (Evergreen and Frayed Leaf) for leaves. For the sentiment I used the Thinking of You stamp set and to finish my card I added black splatters for a bit more interest.

I am here for you 2


That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is my talented teamie Amy Gray and I can't wait to see what she came up with today!

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop!
