Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4 + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the last day of the Altenew 4th Anniversary Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Scrapbook & Cards Today’s blog you are on the right track!

For today’s card, I created a watercoloured floral card with the Happy Bloom stamp set. I simply stamped a large bouquet from the Happy Bloom set on watercolour paper in black pigment ink first, and then stamped the word “Smile” on the banner in black as well.
Next, I watercoloured the stamped image, then fussy cut it out. I decorated the card base with Dotted washi tape & natural twine, then mounted the watercoloured bouquet using foam tape.

Here are a few of my other Altenew favourite cards. You can find the original posts (from top left) here, here, here and here.

Altenew March 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!
Welcome to the Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from Anna Komenda’s blog you are on the right track!
For my cards today, I am featuring so beautiful Sweet Rose Bouquet and Wildflower Garden stamp sets. Oh, I love these two flower sets so much!!
For my first card, I tried to make a simple yet vintage floral wedding card using the Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp set. I stamped layered roses & leaves on the centre of watercolour paper panel using several dye inks:
Rose petals: (light to dark) Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Midnight Violet
Leaves: Forest Glades, Evergreen
I then die cut the letter “W” from the stamped panel using the Caps Bold Alphabet die set.
I mounted the stamped panel on kraft card base using double-sided tape first, and then added the letter “W” in the exact place using foam tape. I lightly coloured the letter “W” using Antique Linen Distress ink, then added red ink splatters around the stamped rose bouquet.

Here is another floral card with the Sweet Rose Bouquet stamp set – It’s my most favourite set among the entire March release products. I stamped them on white paper panel using dye inks:
Rose petals: (light to dark) Ocean Waves, Dusk, Desert Night
(and) Turquoise, Tide Blue, Starlight
Leaves: Limestone, Silver Stone, Industrial Diamond
(and) Forest Glades
I then stamped the sentiment from the Wildflower Garden set on the left part of the stamped panel in pigment black ink, added water droplets using Glossy Accents.

My last card today, I created a (kind of) CAS card with the Wildflower Garden stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on the centre of watercolour paper panel first, and then stamped the flowers & leaves using several dye inks.

PPP March Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, TGIF!!
Welcome to the second day of the Pretty Pink Posh March 2018 Product Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Alix Davis’s blog you are on the right track.

To create the card, I stamped flowers & leaves (from the Cherry Blossoms stamp set) and the sentiment (from the Encouraging Greetings stamp set) on watercolour paper panel in black pigment ink. I then lightly coloured the stamped images with watercolours and a wet paint brush. I added red ink splatters.
For the sparkly rainbow, I stamped it from the Best of Luck set on white card stock using Memento Desert Sand dye ink, die cut it with the coordinating die. Once the watercoloured panel was completely dry, I mounted the panel on top-folded kraft card base using double-sided tape, adhered the stamped rainbow die cut above the sentiment, and then added Jewels on it using fine tip glue pen.
I love these new sparkly Jewels so much!!

For my second card, I created a messy watercoloured flower card with the Cherry Blossoms stamp set. I stamped flowers and leaves on watercolour panel using Antique Linen Distress ink first, and then coloured them with Worn Lipstick, Mowed Lawn, and a bit of Wild Honey Distress inks. Next, I brushed over the coloured images with clean water – Distress inks react with water!
Once the floral panel was completely dry, I mounted it on white card base using double-sided tape, and then added details of the images using 0.05mm Copid multiliner, white ink splatters.

For my last card, I am featuring the Cherry Blossoms set and the Stacked Edges 2 die. I die cut 4 diamond stripes from watercolour paper using the Stacked Edges 2 die first, and then inked stripes with Distress inks and round ink blending tool.
For a cluster of flowers, I stamped & watercoloured them, then die cut them with the Cherry Blossoms coordinating dies. I added Jewels for finishing touches.

GIVEAWAY!!
There are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 3/12/2018. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.
