Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
Welcome to the second day of the Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop!! We have 14 brand new stamp sets, 15 new die sets, and re-inkers in September! If you arrived here from Keeway Tsao’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first two cards, I used the Cotton Comfort stamp set along with the Holiday Wishes stamp set.
I love white on kraft! This is one of my favourite colour combinations for Christmas cards. I stamped the large cotton flower from the Cotton Comfort set on kraft card stock in brown pigment ink, coloured it with white polychromos pencil, and then die cut it with the matching die. For the sentiment panel, I heat embossed the sentiment from the Holiday Wishes set in white, stamped cotton flowers randomly using Tea Dye Distress ink, added white ink splatters, ink blended all edges with Vintage Photo Distress ink.
I tied the jingle bells on the cotton flower because it’s a Christmas card! :D
I randomly stamped cotton flowers from the Cotton Comfort set on watercolour paper panel in brown pigment ink, and then watercoloured the panel using Distress inks and a wet paint brush. I added white ink splatters. For the sentiment, I used the Holiday Wishes stamp set.

For my third card, I made a shaker Christmas card using the Night Before Christmas stamp & die set. I stamped cotton flowers from the Cotton Comfort set randomly onto white paper panel using Silver Stone dye ink, then cut a Christmas tree window on the centre of the stamped panel using the Night Before Christmas die. For the ombré stamped tree, I used the Bamboo, Forest Glades, and Evergreen dye inks.

For my last card, I made a watercoloured flower card using brand new Just Because stamp set. It looks gorgeous in my eyes, haha!! I stamped the flower cluster on watercolour paper in black pigment ink, lightly watercoloured the stamped image using watercolour pencils and water brush, and then fussy cut it. I mounted it on the left side of kraft card using foam tape, and then added white ink splatters.
