Altenew Build-A-Flower: Magnolia Release + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!!
Its already day 15 of another great month, and that means it’s time for another beautiful all-new Build-A-Flower set! M is for May and Magnolia!! Come enjoy our beautiful Build-A-Flower Magnolia set – It’s only available as a set, not individual product.

For my first card, I made a watercolour magnolia. I 1) Cut the Layered Floral Cover Die A from the Spicy Yogurt card stock, and then adhered it on the same Spicy Yogurt card base using Glue Tape. 2) Heat embossed the outlined magnolia image from the Build-A-Flower Magnolia set on watercolour paper in white, coloured it with Distress inks & markers, and then die cut it with the matching die in the set. 3) Heat embossed the sentiment on black card stock in white, trimmed it down. 4) Mounted all elements as shown to the floral base using foam tape.

For my second card, I stamped the layered magnolia with some dye inks: (Petals) Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Ruby Red / (Leaves) Forest Glades, Evergreen / (Branch) Dark Chocolate. Once the ink was completely dry, I heat embossed the outlined magnolia image on the layered stamped image in gold.

PPP May Product Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!!
Welcome to the first day of the Pretty Pink Posh May 2017 Product Release Blog Hop! If you arrived here from the Nina-Marie Trapani blog you are on the right track.

I have two adorable cards to share with you today using the Woodland Critters stamp setI know, you already love this super cute and lovable set! It was a HUGE HIT, wasn’t it?!! – along with other brand new products.
I started by stamping all adorable images from the Woodland Critters set (green leaves from the Bold Blooms set, blue stars from the Thoughtful Greetings set) on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in black pigment ink. I then watercoloured them with Distress markers. I also coloured the background with Antique Linen Distress ink. Once the panel was completely dry, I trimmed the bottom of the panel down using the Scallop Borders 2 dies. For the sentiment, I heat embossed it from the Woodland Critters set on dark chocolate card stock in white, and then fussy cut it out. I mounted all elements as shown to top-folded kraft card base using foam tape. To finish it off, I embellished with a few 4mm Nature sequins.
These Woodland Critters are so super cute!! Oh, I LOVE them soooooo much!!!!

For my second card, I used Copic markers for colouring. I created green grass field, blue sky, and white clouds background on watercolour paper, trimmed it down using the stitched rectangle panel die in the Stitched Notes die set. Next, I stamped images from the Woodland Critters set on white card stock in Black Licorice hybrid ink, coloured them with Copic markers, die cut them with the matching dies. For the sentiment, I used the Thoughtful Greetings stamp set.
“Everything is better when you’re around!”

I made a happy birthday card for the Altenew!! I love making white heat embossed images + Distress ink blended background with the Altenew flower stamp set!

I then lightly brushed on the ink blended panel using a wet paint brush.

Altenew Card Kit/Layering Dies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, welcome to the Altenew Card Kit/Layering Dies Release Blog Hop!
Altenew New Day Card Kit
Thirty four cardstock die cuts
Six 8.5 x 11 inch cardstock (Made in UK)
Forty eight 6×6 inch pattern paper sheets (two of each design)
Two alphabet sticker sheets
12 wood veneer frames
6×8 inch photopolymer clear stamp set (Made in USA)
One gold glitter tape
Frame die, hearts and stars die
Enamel dots and hearts (4×6 inch sheet)

To create the first card, I simply stamped the flower and butterfly from the Floral Garden set in the card kit on white paper panel with several dye inks: (Petal) Coral Berry, Ruby Red / (Leaves) Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen / (Butterfly) Sunkissed, Autumn Blaze. I then stamped the sentiment in Jet Black dye ink. I decorated the stamped panel with gold glitter tape in the kit and natural twine. For the card base, I used one of the pattern papers in the card kit.

For my second card, I wanted to create a clean and simple card using the new Layered Floral Cover Die A and B (This set is One and Only!!). I die cut the Layered Floral Cover Die A and B from blue shades of card stock, then adhered two layers onto Spicy Yogurt card base using foam tape. For the sentiment, I used the word “Thank you” in the Majestic Bloom die set. I embellished with some enamel dots in the card kit.

Here is one more card with the new card kit! Those flower stamp, elegant frame die, sentiment banner, and beautiful watercoloured pattern paper.. I am so in love with the New Day Card Kit!!
