Altenew April 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


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

There are lots of new products being released today! Some fabulous stamps and dies are now available for purchase at the Altenew online store.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Saturday, April 21st for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 4/22/2018.

For today’s blog hop I’ve created two CAS, one-layered cards using the new release. For my first card, I used Mega Greetings Stamp Set, which I think will be my new favourite set! I simply love this fun and trendy set that contains two large words, "thanks" and "hello," accompanied by additional phrases to help you convey the perfect message on your card.

hello


I stamped the hello word in black and added few stamps from the Wildflower Garden Stamp Set. To finish my card off I added some black splashes.

hello


To create my second card I used another great set called Watercolor Dots. This set will make it a breeze to create the look of watercolour dots on any project!

hello


I inked my stamp with a few different inks (Buttercream, Mango Smoothie, Honey Drizzle and Frayed Leaf) to create my background. Then I stamped a sentiment, added a few doodled images over some of the dots and few splashes of green ink green paint. Love this fun, modern and watercolour look!

hello
