I’m so excited to be taking part in Altenew’s 2016 July release and blog hop, and if you arrived here from Laura Bassen’s blog then you are exactly where you need to be. Today we will be releasing 16 stamp sets, some new papers and washi tape! I had so much fun with these new stamp sets, I can’t wait to play some more.
Here is my first card for today (the video link is below),
Time for a CAS tone on tone background using those fabulous gray inks and the pale gray cardstock from Altenew. Then it was time for a bright stamp layered Tulip from this gorgeous new set and the sentiment was taken from Birch Land.
I decided to film as I created this card to show just how it came together.
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.
And now, my second and brightest card for this release. I decided to use the Celebrations stamp set to create a fun wedding card. It was time to do some paper piecing and I decided to use one of my all time fave colour combos – bright orange and hot pink, now who wouldn’t love this?
And for my final card I used the Happy Mail set to create this clean and simple design. Just a little bit of sneaky masking, colour added with Prismacolor Pencils and my panel sitting up on a piece of (hoarded) Cherry Wood specialty paper, this card came together very quickly.
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away $50 gift certificate to three lucky winners. Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog for your chance to win! You have until Friday August 5th, 11:59pm EST to leave your comments.
