Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway



Hellooooo!!!
You must be here from the AH-mazing Jennifer Mcguire's blog
Welcome to Altenew's 6th Anniversary Hop Day 1! WOOT! I am SO excited. 
I was asked to join Altenew in January 2017. I remember I read May's message several times and I was like "What? NO WAY! ME? I don't even know how to talk!" HA! look at me now, making videos and chatting away! I still struggle, but oh how far I have come!

I LOVE THIS COMPANY and everything it makes! I know you love Altenew too!

Here is what I made to celebrate Altenew turning SIX!

Blinding right? LOL 
I wanted to make something gold, sparkly and of course colourful!
I used Altenew Watercolour Brush Markers to colour the images. I actually have a snippet of how I coloured these images in the video I shared a few days ago. You can check it out HERE.

Whenever I colour images this way, I colour a ton of them because the colouring process is SO EASY and FAST! It's the drying time that takes a while. I let mine dry overnight. I am glad I made these when I was filming, I whipped up this fantastic card in no time.

Onto the fun stuff now!

Hello!
You must be here from Reiko Tsuchida's blog.



I have one card to share today and I love how it turned out.


Altenew Fabulous Florets Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the images from the Fabulous Florets Stamp Set onto watercolor paper in Antique Linen distress ink. Next, I used Artists' Watercolours to color the images.

You will find the coordinating dies to the stamp set HERE.
For my card front, I used Pale Gray Cardstock. I used Forest Glades Metallic Ink Spray to add splatters to the background along with some black splatters from the 36 Pan Watercolor Set.
My flowers have such a tropical feel to it! 
I hope you like the card.

Altenew Mini Delight: Strength Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



You must be here from Maryam Perez's blog.

Mini Delight is released monthly and features a 2x3 stamp set with a coordinating die/die set. Although the sets are small, they are incredibly versatile and can be used to create a variety of projects! The themes of the sets span across our full range of categories
(including floral, geometric, sentiments, and more) and we are confident that it will delight you from month to month!



I didnt have the stamp set so I only used the die set and die-cut a gold glitter cardstock twice. I adhered these feathers a few times on layers of die cuts to make them sturdy and then adhered them onto the card front.



To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog for a chance to win. We’ll also draw a winner
to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 3/21/2020.

The next stop on the hop is Lilith Eeckels.

Hello!
You must be here from Kelly Griglione's blog.
Welcome to Altenew's Build-A-Flower: Canterbury Release.

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Canterbury Bells | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0

I stamped the flower in Obsidian Black ink and shaded the image in prismacolor black. Next, I used a blending stump to blend the pigment. 
On the card front, I added black paint splatters and popped the die-cut image. I kept the card super simple and classy.
