Altenew June Release Blog hop | Giveaway

Welcome to a fun blog hop! Join us as we celebrate the June 2018 release by Altenew with lots of inspiration and giveaways. If you want to see a close-up of the whole release please visit THIS post.

For my card today I used a stamp you will all love, the Sweetest Peas Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ). I love how unique those flowers are and the whimsical look on them!

for my card I stamped them in black and then used my ZIG clean markers to color them. Quick and easy coloring with only two markers for the petals and two greens. I used Bristol Paper for the stamping and coloring that make blending with those markers so easy.

For my background I stamped a part of the Pinstripe Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ) with embossing ink and added gold embossing powder. You can see I didn’t go for the perfect look just to add a more artsy look. To complete my card I added more touches of gold such as crystals and a washi tape.

    I watched your whole release video before looking at the blog hop, and I was surprised when you mentioned that the Sweetest Pea set was your favorite. I really didn’t see the appeal at first, but now that I’ve gone through part of the hop and seen what people have done with it, you were totally right. I’m really enjoying what I’ve seen people do with it, and there’s something about the really open, asymmetrical petals that just adds a lot of fun and whimsy to a card. Thanks for sharing with us!

    Vicky,
    I’ve been away from the internet for several days as the sun and the ocean were calling my name, so I am just now catching up on your blog. This card is sensational! I love the way you used the pinstripe stamp to partially stamp/emboss your background! How clever! I am a big Altenew fan and you certainly know how to make these stamps come alive! Thank you for sharing!
