Altenew May 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

EDIT: This giveaway is now closed and you can find the winner HERE!


Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew May Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Sveta’s blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to Altenew blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

There are some fabulous stamps, dies and embossing powders being released today and they are now available for purchase at the Altenew online store.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Thursday, June 1st at 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Saturday, June 3rd.

Today I have three, very CAS cards to share, using the newly released products. For my first card, I used a stamp from the new Watercolor Frames stamp set to create a subtle backdrop for a cake from Cake Love Stamp Set.

I used Altenew Markers to do some colouring and used a shape from Simple Flowers Die Set to cut out the stamped cake.

For my next card, I again used a stamp from the Watercolor Frames set for the background. This time I inked the image with three different colours of ink to achieve a fun ombre look.

i'm so proud of you

As my focal point, I used a beautiful image from Under the Cherry Blossom Tree stamp set. I stamped it with black ink and cut out using the coordinating die.

i'm so proud of you


For my last card today, I used Enchanted Iris Stamp Set. I simply ink part of the flower stamp and stamped them in a row.

thanks

I used markers to do some simple colouring and added the sentiment to finish off the card.

thanks


This is the last stop on the blog hop today, I hope you enjoyed seeing all the new products and the inspiration from everyone! If you want to start from the beginning to check all the amazing projects along the way here is the full list:

  54. Your cards are lovely! I love how you used color in the background and very little on the focal point of the first two cards! They result in "simple" cards, but elegant as well. I love the iris card -- that stamp is a must have. I would never thought of using just the flower part of the stamp and only having one complete image and two partial! It is another way of using the stamp. The sentiments on all the cards are very supportive which is a nice change from the funny ones.

    ReplyDelete
  55. I love all the cards you made! I tried to decide which I like best but have to say they are equally lovely.

    ReplyDelete
