Altenew March Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway


Hello!


Today I'm participating Altenew March Release Blog Hop. If you came from Evelyn Yusuf blog, you are on the right track. If not, please start at the beginning of Altenew's blog.

Altenew is releasing a wonderful set of new stamps and dies. I played a little with Garden Treasure stamp and Garden Treasure die set and made this wedding card for my collaque. Firstly, I stamped the flowers with Altenew Blush Crisp Die Ink onto a copic friendly card stock. Then coloured the flowers with copic markers and coloured pencils. I used a square die to die cut the two pieces of card stock that I use to create the background. I used Cherry Wood card stock and the same card stock that I used for my card base. I wanted to have to something light and beautiful on the background as well so I stamped a few leaves from an older stamp set called Precious Moments, I stamped the sentiment from Ori kami set with Altenew Jet Black Crisp die ink.



Prizes:
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, March 30th at 11:59 pm EST for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Friday, March 31th.

Optional:
I will also draw a winner to receive a $30 gift certificate. Please, leave a comment on to this blog post to have a chance to win. The winner will announced on this blog soon after the giveaway closes.

Get hopping:
Here's the list of all participants. Next is unbelievable talented Yana Smakula. Enjoy!


Thanks for stopping by! See you soon!
