Altenew July 2018 Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


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

There is a bunch of fabulous stencils being released today and all are now available for purchase at the Altenew online store.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Thursday, July 12th for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 7/15/2018.

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

Today I've created two simple cards to share with you. For my first card, I used the Mega Hydrangea Stencil to create a background for the embellishments. I decided to go for a bright yellow and pink colour combo and applied Altenew inks (Buttercream, Mango Smoothie, Warm Sunshine, Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy and Coral Berry) with sponge daubers. Then I added some pink and yellow splashes of paint to the background.

love you


Next, I used a washi tape and leaves die cut from the Fantasy Floral 3d Die Set. To finish the card I added my sentiment. I used a negative die cut panel I had sitting on my desk (it was created with the Fine Alphabet Die Set) and I added the “you” die cut from the Flower Arrangement Die Set on top.

love you


For my second card I used another beautiful stencil called Feeling Dotty and I have lightly sponged it over with Frayed Leaf ink.

hello


To finish the card, I again used die cuts from the Fantasy Floral 3d Die Set and a negative die cut panel from my leftovers stash.

hello


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!

  9. You used my favourite stencil, that being the Mega Hydrangea. I really think your first card is just lovely. I have often saved the negative from a die cut word, but have never used it. I eventually put them in my garbage can. I may have to rethink that now. Thanks for the idea.
