Altenew March Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway


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

There are 15 new fabulous stamp sets and 13 dies being released today and they are now available for purchase at the Altenew online store.

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

In addition, one winner will be chosen from the comments left on this blog post and will receive a $30 gift certificate!


For today’s blog hop I created two simple, one-layer cards. The first one is made using a set called Tea Time and I love these fun, hand-drawn images. I stamped them with black ink on the bottom of my card and used Altenew Artist Markers to colour some of the images in.

To finish the card, I combined two sentiments from the set and stamped them in black.

My second card is even more simple than the first one. I started by stamping the sentiments from Family Matters Stamp set with black ink. Then I added a small floral image from a beautiful set called Garden Treasure.

I again used the Altenew Artist Markers to do a very simple colouring.
