Altenew April 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, everyone and welcome to the Altenew April Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Jenn'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! Some fabulous stamps and dies 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 Saturday, April 21st for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 4/22/2018.

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 CAS, one-layered cards using the new release. For my first card, I used Mega Greetings Stamp Set, which I think will be my new favourite set! I simply love this fun and trendy set that contains two large words, "thanks" and "hello," accompanied by additional phrases to help you convey the perfect message on your card.


I stamped the hello word in black and added few stamps from the Wildflower Garden Stamp Set. To finish my card off I added some black splashes.


To create my second card I used another great set called Watercolor Dots. This set will make it a breeze to create the look of watercolour dots on any project!


I inked my stamp with a few different inks (Buttercream, Mango Smoothie, Honey Drizzle and Frayed Leaf) to create my background. Then I stamped a sentiment, added a few doodled images over some of the dots and few splashes of green ink green paint. Love this fun, modern and watercolour look!


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!

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

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

Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello, everyone! Today I’m very honoured to be participating in the Altenew’s 4rd Anniversary Blog Hop! It's crazy how fast time flies! We “just recently” celebrated the Altenew’s 3rd anniversary and today Altenew is 4! It has been another great year full of joy to work with all the beautiful stamps and more! I’m always waiting for the new releases and love the feeling when I’m itching to get my hands on the new products and start creating my cards. I absolutely honoured to be a part of this amazing team! Congrats on 4 wonderful years, Altenew!

You should have arrived here from Jessica Frost-Ballas’ blog, if not head back over to the Altenew blog to start from the beginning.

For today's Blog Hop I created a simple card using a beautiful set called Wildflower Garden and here’s what I came up with:

happy birthday

I used Altenew Crisp Dye Inks (Evergreen, Forest Glades, Persian Blue, Sapphire, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Honey Dazzle, Lavender Fields, Sea Glass and Ocean Waves) to stamp flowers and leaves, and added some colourful splashes here and there. The “happy birthday” sentiment is from Birthday Builder Stamp Set.
