Altenew August 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew August Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Anna Komenda'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 are lots of new products being released today! New stamp sets and dies 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. Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, August 22nd for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 8/26/2018.

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

For today’s blog hop I’ve created two simple cards using the new products.

For my first card I stamped images from Inked Flora Stamp Set with Altenew Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink and used Watercolor 36 Pan Set to do a simple colouring.

To finish my card, I stamped a sentiment stamp from the set and added black ink splatters.

For my second card I used the new Geo Frames Stamp Set and coordinating dies. I started by stamping my background with Pinstripe Stamp Set, then I created a frame and stamped my sentiment on it.

you're so beautiful


To finish it, I used floral images from the Perfectly Perfect Stamp Set and coloured them with Altenew watercolours.

you're so beautiful


That’s it for me, your next stop on the hop is Tania Ahmed!

Here is the full line up for the blog hop today.
