Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew March Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Carissa's blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to Altenew Card Blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

There are lots of fabulous products being released today, and they are now available for purchase at the Altenew online store.

To celebrate this release, Altenew will draw six lucky winners who will each receive a $50 gift certificate to their online store.

Today I've created three cards to share with you. For my first card, I stamped images from the Focus on You Stamp Set and I was inspired by some beautiful vintage botanical illustrations.

I stamped my images in black and used Altenew markers to colour them in (C002, R702, R902, B002, B227, R926 and G715)

For my second card I combined new Dearest Friend Stamp Set with a stamp from the older Watercolor Frames.

thank you


I stamped the frame in Sea Glass ink and added the thank you sentiment and a floral element in black. Again, I used Altenew markers to finish my card off.

thank you


For my last card I stamped beautiful images from the gorgeous Hope Stamp Set. I love those beautiful flower buds, aren’t they cute?!

I may not


I used Pink Diamond, Pinkalicious, Rubelitte and Razzleberry ink to stamp the flower and Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen for the leaves and buds.

I may not 1


The sentiment comes from the Dearest Friend Stamp Set.

That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is amazing Lydia Evans and I can't wait to see what she came up with today!

Thanks for stopping by today!
