Altenew December 2017 Release Blog Hop



Hello friends!
You are here from Isha Gupta's blog.
If you just happen to stop by, there is a complete hop list at the end of this post for you to take part in Altenew's December Release Blog Hop.
Apart from the dies and stamps, Altenew is releasing their NEW Mini Blossom Die cut machine!
It is the cutest and prettiest machine ever!
My first card features the Wild About You Stamp and Die set.

For my background I used one of the papers from My Family Scrapbook Collection.

I stamped the leaves using Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades. For the flowers I used Cherry Blossom Crisp Inks, Shades of Purple and Pocketful of Sunshine.

My second card features the newly released Parrot Paradise Die set and Brushed Alphabet dies.

It makes me SO happy that the coordinating dies for Parrot Paradise and Totally Tropical are here!
Though I am only using the former on my card today but you will soon see a Totally Tropical card from my side.

I started off by making clouds with Ocean Waves Crisp Ink. This colour is beautiful for sky too!

I then stamped my parrot onto Classic Crest Solar White cardstock and coloured him with Artist Markers in Frayed Leaf, Forest Green, Buttercream and Warm Sunshine. For the beak I used Paper Bag Artist Marker. These colours are from Set A and Set B.

I then Die cut "Fly High" from my new favourite alpha dies, the Brushed Alphas in white and black because I didn't know which colour I should go with.

In the end it all worked out since I used the black ones as an offset to my white alphas.

Now on to the good part!
