Altenew August 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway

Welcome to a fun blog hop!

The latest Altenew release is out and we are celebrating with a fun blog hop to inspire you! Make sure to visit all the stops for amazing creations and keep in min that there are lots of giveaways along the way! More on that at the end of this post.

You should have arrived here from Jennifer’s McGuire blog. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning and read all the details please visit the Altenew blog here.

I am sharing two cards using the Rose Filament die set. My sentiments are cut outs from the Script Words die set. I just love their design and all the different ways they can be used.

card 1

For my first card I created a background pattern out of the rose cut outs. I chose to go with gold as I wanted to create an elegant looking card perfect for weddings and anniversaries. And I think it would look beautiful if you go white on white and let the dimension do the job!

here is a closer look

Card 2

Now on a totally different idea. For this card I am using the rose outline but also all the little inside pieces. I inked up everything in different shades of color to make sure that the rose doesn’t look flat.

I love the size of the rose since it makes the perfect focal point on a card. Combine it with any of the Script Words and you have a lovely card.

    Thank you!!! I always learn from you. But the most important lesson I get from you is that I should be open minded and enjoy myself. I look forward to your blogs, YouTube and all other good stuff coming from Greece.

    Hey, Vicki! I’m doing so many of these blog hops that I am getting to recognize everyone on the hops. I love both of your card. The gold one looks so rich! It looks like one of those cards that when my mom goes looking for one she says, “That one is to expensive. They are only going to open it up and then throw it away”. Yes, I am a card maker but a lot of times my mom is looking for a great verse on the inside of the card and I don’t have those kind of poems for my cards. She will get a card from me, but mostly she buys them. The second one is very pretty and colorful. My niece loves pink so she would like this one. Both cards are beautiful! Thanks for giving us a chance to win something. I can’t wait to see more of what everyone did.

    These two cards are very elegant! The gold one would be perfect for a wedding or anniversary card-especially a 50th anniversary. The second card would be appropriate for many occasions. Love them!

    Beautiful cards!! I agree that first card in the gold would make a most beautiful wedding or anniversary card. Doing the same thing in white would be gorgeous as well. The soft colours of the second card are perfect and suit the delicate die cut so well
