Altenew Love & Friendship Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew Love & Friendship Release Blog Hop. If you arrived here from Tina Smith’s blog you are on the right track!

For my first card, I am featuring the new Queen Anemone along with other Altenew goodies – as everyone knows, Altenew is the best for layering flower stamps!

I started by dry embossing on A2 sized white cardstock using the new Organic Linen 3D Embossing Folder. I then die cut the Leafy Wreath from white cardstock twice, inked one of the Leafy Wreath die cuts with Crushed Olive Distress ink. I added green ink splatters.

For beautiful flowers, I stamped layering anemones with Red Sunset dye ink set. I used Blush for base, Rouge for second layer and Crimson for outline layer. For leaves, I used Green Fields dye ink set.

For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Thank you” from metallic gold cardstock using the Flower Arrangement die set.

For my second cards, I used the Fresh Cut Roses stamp set along with the Watercolor 36 pan set.

I stamped flower images from the Fresh Cut Roses set onto watercolour paper panel using Rocky Shore dye ink. I then coloured the stamped images using Watercolor 36 pan set:
(Roses) mixed with Cotton Candy and Coral Berry and little bit of Paper Bag
(Leaves) mixed with Frayed Leaf and Espresso and Bamboo.

Take a closer look:

I heat embossed the flower in white first, and then watercoloured it – I used Crimson for petals, Forest Glades & Bamboo for leaves. Red flower and dotted washi tape are the best combination of Altenew floral cards. :D

  2. Gorgeous!!! Love the torn dotted washi tape idea! Plus, that leaf wreath die works so well behind the floral images. Thank you for sharing your stunning creations ❤️

  8. Your “thank you” card is really pretty. I love the pairing of the pale greens and the bright pinks and the flow of the card is really nice. The wreath grounds it out on the left and just draws the eye around the card. The textured linen background is just a perfect canvas for the queen anemones. So nice.

  9. Your colouring is always fantastic – LOVE your cards, particularly the dimension on the first one – found myself reaching out to pluck the flowers from the card. Brilliant. Love the new release, and the fact that you can now use stencils in such an amazing way. Thanks so much for sharing.

  10. I am in awe of your water coloring! Those roses jump off the paper. All the cards are lovely. Thanks for the inspiration. I like the dotted washi tape with the roses.

  11. Gorgeous cards with amazing colors. Love them all. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent and ideas with us and inspiring us too. :)

  12. Your cards look so realistic and stylish!
    The addition of the clear drops makes it look like dew on the flowers, love them!
    Thanks for sharing.
