Altenew March Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway

Altenew-March22-RleaseBlogHop

 

Today I am happy to be part of the Altenew blog hop, celebrating the March release! You should have arrived here from Agnieszka’s blog, but if you want to start the blog hop from the beginning the full list is at the bottom of this post! Amazing designers are playing along, with tons of inspiration and lots of giveaways so make sure to join the fun and leave everyone some love!

For my card I used the beautiful Garden Treasure stamp set and dies! How can I resist this gorgeous stamp set now that spring is here?

The stamp set gives you different layers so that you can stamp the flowers and the leaves with different shades of inks to do your shading. However they do give you the outline image as well! So you can choose how to work with them. I just stamped the outline and had fun with my watercolor pens.

A flower card is perfect for every  occasion so just use any sentiment you like! To finish it off I just had to add some glitter at the background as well as stick a few of those art pebbles that look like morning dew drops.

    I’m going to have to find some glimmer paste. It looks so pretty and the flowers too. I still don’t have the blending thing down yet. I keep trying.

    Wow! Those flowers look like they were just cut from the garden. I’m just getting started with papercrafting and you and your work is definitely giving me inspiration for when I get some stamps and inks. I just got my Cricut, so stamps and inks are next on the list. Can’t wait to see more work from you.
