Altenew May 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone!!

i am super excited and happy to be joining the "Altenew May release blog hop". Its a absolute honor to be a part of my most favorite and one of the best stamp companies new release.

You must have come from TaeEun yoo's blog,if not you can check the complete blog hop list on Altenew blog.

This release is fabulous as ever which includes stamps,dies and embossing powders.I have made four cards in total using them,so lets go straight to the post.

Enchanted iris 



 I stamped the "Enchanted iris" flowers  with black archival ink,water colored them using zig markers and added a bit of shadow around the flowers with a grey marker.I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set on a black cardstock using versamark and heat embossed with Golden peach embossing powder.I finished of the card with some faux stitching,sequins,enamel dots and twine.


Halftone everything + Layered plaid cover die A


I kept this card quiet simple to show the beauty of the Plaid cover die A,i just created the background with color burst Ultramarine blue and violet,diecut the panel with white cardstock and layered it on top.I heat embossed the word everything from the Halftone everything stamp set(which has some really great sentiments) on a black cardstock,heat embossed using Golden peach embossing powder and die cut it using the coordinating die set.The size of the word is big enough to use as focal point,i completed the sentiment using "you do rock" which is stamped on a white diecut flag.


Best buds


 I arranged the stem,buds and leaves from the Best buds stamp set on the card panel using misti and stamped them using archival black ink.Watercolored them using zig markers and finished it off with a sentiment from same stamp set.This set is great for friendship theme cards which feature some beautiful sentiments.I added a washi tape strip on the side of the card panel to add some contrast.

Enchanted iris + Halftone everything die set


For this card i stamped and colored the flowers from Enchanted iris stamp set on a separate cardstock,fussy cut them and mounted onto the card panel. The Halftone everything die set has two dies,one of them coordinates with the stamp set whereas the other one is a stand alone die.I die cut the word with black cardstock and stamped the word "Happy" form the Halftone everything stamp set.Finished off the card with glitter washi tape and enamel dots.
