Altenew Watercolor Brush Marker Refills Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!
Welcome to the Altenew Watercolor Brush Marker Refills Release Blog Hop. I’m so excited to be a part of this amazing blog hop!! If you arrived here from Virginia Lu’s blog you are on the right track!
Altenew watercolor brush marker refills are really amazing. They are refills but can be used as liquid watercolor paints. I have many other watercolour mediums but undoubtedly I’ll only use them for a while! I seriously LOVE them so much!!

For my first card, I die cut flower petals & leaves from watercolour paper using the Rose Flurries 3D die set first, and then watercoloured them with several Watercolor Brush Marker Refills & water brush.
For flower petals, I used Ruby Red, Sunkissed, Rouge and Fresh Lemon.
For leaves, I used Lime, Mountain Mist, Sweet Leaf and Emerald.
(**Emerald colour included in this Winter Wonderland set is a different toned Emerald from the one in the Spring Garden set. The Emerald in the Winter Wonderland set is a cool tone of the Emerald colour.)
Once all die cuts were dry, I assembled flowers and leaves. For the sentiment, I die cut the word “Hugs” from white card stock using the Script Words die set.
I trimmed the left side of kraft rectangle panel down using the Creative Edges: Notebook die, then inked all edges with Rocky Shore dye ink. I mounted all elements as shown in the picture using foam tape, then added opaque white ink splatters using Pure White ink spray.

For my second card, I made no-line watercoloured floral background with the Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm set.
I randomly stamped flowers & leaves onto watercolour paper panel using Sand Dunes dye ink. I then watercoloured all stamped images with Watercolor Brush Marker Refills:
Red flowers: mixed with Ruby Red and Paper Bag
Brown flowers: mixed with Paper Bag, Rouge and Espresso
Leaves: mixed with Sweet Leaf and Espresso
I added green, brown, opaque white ink splatters to the entire panel.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
This month’s Altenew build-a-flower set features a beautiful Peony Blossom. The Peony Blossom Build-A-Flower has a slightly different approach than our conventional Build-A-Flower sets. The stamp set has three five-petal flowers accompanied by a shading layer and a center layer. You may use these flowers as is, or layer them to create dimension. The matching dies will cut the flowers all the way to the edge without leaving a border. This will help in shaping the petals to the desired dimension when using a shaping tool (don’t have a shaping tool? You can use the domed end of a pen or pencil!). We included an additional flower die and stamen dies to help you create realistic blooms! Even though we named the set ‘Peony Blossom’ since the petals were loosely based on Peony petals, you can let your imagination run wild and create different types of flowers! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom

Here is what I came up with:

I stamped flower petals onto watercolour paper using Coral Bliss & Heart Beat dye inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies.
I then cut between stamped lines shown as the picture using scissors.
I added stamen on the centre of each flower using foam tape.
For the sentiment, I used the Adore You stamp set.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win. Three winners will be announced on the Card Blog, and other three winners will be announced on the Scrapbook Blog on 2/18/2018.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Carnation + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
This month’s build-a-flower set features a beautiful carnation. The meaning of carnation includes fascination, distinction, and love, and its use in art and decor dates back to ancient Greek and Roman times. With their ruffled appearance and classic beauty, these flowers possess a charm and allure that continues to captivate people around the globe. Alongside the multi-step carnation, we have included two-step leaves, berries, and a cluster of tiny flowers that can be used as filler images for your flower arrangements! The set also includes three kindness sentiments that are great for any occasion.
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Carnation

Here is what I came up with:
When I saw the beautiful Carnation set, I wanted to make very feminine card. :D I stamped layered carnations & leaves using some dye inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies:
Red carnation: (light to dark) Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Ruby Red
Pink carnation: Frosty Pink, Peach Perfect, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry
Leaves: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades
Before mounting the cluster of carnations, I decorated the Spicy Yogurt card base with lace.

Roses are heart-stoppingly beautiful, and their aroma is equally show-stopping.

Altenew: Happiness is coming your way

Hello crafty friends!
I’m up on the Altenew blog with my watercolour flower card using the Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm Set.
I started by stamping flowers and leaves from the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in pigment black ink – I used Post-It Notes for masking flowers. I then watercoloured the stamped images with Peerless watercolors, the background with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I added black ink splatters here and there. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black, and then mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape.
I hope you’ll always find happiness in whatever you may do!! :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!
