Altenew February 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends! Welcome to the Altenew February 2018 Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Yana Smakula’s blog you are on the right track!
My cards today, I am featuring the Forever and Always and the Happy Bloom sets – These two flower sets are truly gorgeous!!
For my first card, I made a watercolour flower card with the Forever and Always stamp & die set. I stamped a flower bouquet onto watercolour paper in pigment black first, coloured it with watercolours, and then die cut it with the matching die. I watercoloured the background panel with shades of pink.
I mounted the watercoloured panel on Spicy Yogurt card base using glue tape first, and then all elements as shown to card front using foam tape.
I stamped the sentiment from the Forever and Always set inside the card in black. Oh, that sentiment is so romantic!!

For my second card, I used the Happy Bloom stamp set. I stamped flowers & leaves randomly onto white paper panel in black dye ink. I then coloured the background with the Artist Markers Set A: (from light to dark) Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Desert Night. For the stamped flowers & leaves, I coloured them with polychromos pencils.

  1. Your cards are always amazing. Your talent with watercolor just blows me away. Thank you for sharing so many pieces of your work.

  2. Altenew has done it again! What a wonderful release with beautiful sentiments and my favourite Sewn With Love stamp and die set. Thanks for the lovely inspiration!

  3. Ohhhhh.. First of all, the watercolored floral is gorgeous! Pair that with the beautiful background you created and you’ve got gold!

  4. Oh, my…the first card is so soft and heavenly. I just love the color pallette. As I do the second card, too. I am thinking of the background color in the shade at the bottom of the card to paint my front door! I think it will pop off the beige and brick and compliment it nicely! Can’t wait to see it now that I have decided. Thanks for the confirmation :-))

  5. Beautiful cards! Your watercoloring on the first card is just stunning and the coloring on the second is gorgeous! Thanks for sharing your creativity!
