Altenew April 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

Today I share a video showing how I easily watercoloured the Weekend Doodles flowers, but did you know that this is part of a Hop celebrating the new release from Altenew and if you are hopping along you should have arrived here from JEN’s amazing Blog!

Let’s start with some release inspiration and this gorgeous Spring Fling Stamp Set.  I used the new Altenew Crisp Dye ink colours and used the co ordinating dies which made the process real fun & easy.

I used the new Essential Rock Collection Paper Pack for the side strip and the background and the sentiment was stamped directly onto this using the Permanent Black ink.

My second card has a video to share the process, these flowers are from the Weekend Doodles Stamp Set and I did some simple watercolouring with the Altenew Pan Set.

The Baby Pink Sentiment comes from the Delicate Flower Bed set and I added a Mega Friend die cut in Dark Chocolate cardstock.

  4. I loved the look of the Weekend Doodles set and after seeing this video, it’s a foregone conclusion that it will soon be in my stash! I love using the 36 pan watercolor set and that just sealed the deal here. Both cards are beautiful BTW but I do love watercolor. 🙂

  5. So pretty! I love the first one because I love the sweet, whimsical rabbit (& the set!).
    Your coloring is always gorgeous, so the 2nd card is just as pretty!

  6. Thanks for reminding me to sprinkle some splatters on what I think is a finished card. They make such a difference!

When I saw this amazing new release from Altenew (SO MUCH TO CHOOSE FROM), when I saw the black/grey and white paper pack I knew you wouldn’t be able to resist using that, and I was right!!!!! Have to admit that pad and the Summer Garden were my two favourites. So many beautiful stamps and dies too. Oh dear! Loved your gorgeous creations. As always, thanks so much for sharing with us.
