Altenew May 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday!
Welcome to the Altenew May 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Altenew Scrapbook Blog you are on the right track!

First two cards, I am featuring the Starry Flowers Stamp and Die Set – it’s one of my favourites among the entire new products.
I started by stamping larger flower from the Starry Flowers set on the top left corner of watercolour paper panel in black pigment ink. I then coloured it with warm coloured watercolour & water brush.
Once the panel was dry, I die cut the watercoloured flower with the matching die, inked the panel with Tattered Rose Distress ink, then adhered the flower die cut in place using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the Rustic Linen stamp set.

For my second card, I was inspired by the name of the stamp set! I heat embossed the flowers from the Starry Flowers set onto watercolour paper panel with white embossing powder first, and then ink blended the stamped panel with several Distress inks: Crushed Olive, Mermaid Lagoon, and Faded Jeans. After blending, I freely brushed the panel with the same colours of Distress ink.
Once the panel was completely dry, I spritzed over the panel with Pure White ink spray. For the sentiment, I used the Wildflower Garden stamp set.

For my last card for the hop, I’m featuring the Garden Silhouette stamp set. I randomly stamped images onto watercolour panel in pigment black, then roughly watercoloured the panel with Gansai Tambi Watercolors. For the sentiment, I used the word “hugs” in the Script Words die set.

  1. I am always very drawn to your designs, these cards once again beautifuly done! Thank you so much for the inspiration.

  2. Oh, I love how you did the coloring on the first card. Sometimes with clustered bouquets like that, I have a hard time seeing the individual flowers, but you did an excellent job creating the shadows and highlights to differentiate them. I also very much like the galaxy-style background with the starry flowers. That’s an excellent match both visually and conceptually. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow, beautiful cards, I love the soft background for the starry flowers and its monochromatic look. The watercolored background is stunning for the starry florals and the painted watercolor stripes are awesome backgound for the garden flowers.

  4. Your cards are so beautiful! This is a great release from Altenew and your designs just help them to shine! I love the stary background d with the starry flower set!

  5. I love how you used the washi tape to add some background interest. The new washi tape is so beautiful, how can you part with them!

  6. Love your use of the Starry Flowers stamp set on your cards here. They are all so soft and show genuine care-the recipient will appreciate your words of compassion.
