Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Lush Garden Release Blog Hop & Giveaway + Video!

Can you use ‘muted’ colours on flowers? Today I have 2 cards and a video to share with you, doing just that!

But first, this post is part of a Hop celebrating a new release from Altenew so you should have arrived here from VICKY’s wonderful Blog.

I have 2 cards and a video to share with you today starting with a beautiful bunch of flowers! But first can I share my bunch of flowers that I received recently to celebrate our 30th Wedding anniversary (it’s Huge)!

ps these are my ‘usual’ go to colours… my hubby knows me so well! And now, for those ‘muted’ tones…..

One of the best things about these project kits is that you have ALL the options. I could easily stamp or blend all my images and then cut them out with the coordinating dies.

Then I added a Featured Sentiments Die with a sentiment from the Flower Vine Stamp Set.

For my second design I used the 3D Embossing Folder from the Kit.

I added ‘colour’ to my flowers using blending tools which was very easy to do!

This time I added a Waterbrush Hello sentiment and a subsentiment from the Hello and Hugs Stamp Set.

  1. Congratulations on your 30th. wedding anniversary. Beautiful bunch of flowers. I love the colors and then then colors in your cards. Always nice when someone gives you flowers.

  2. Congrats on your anniversary, what a beautiful bunch of flowers. I love your muted tones in your cards, so subtle and beautiful!

  3. Hello: That’s great! Happy recent Anniversary – so special! Beautiful project. Lovely work – I enjoy following someone so talented like yourself. Plus, it’s much fun! I have to check out these Kits. Thanks T! Regards, Denise

  4. These are just beautiful. I’m glad you demonstrated your coloring method for the embossed flowers! Congratulations on your thirtieth wedding anniversary and those flowers were beautiful too!

  5. I love the muted colors of these cards…I usually like bold, but these are lovely..love this new kit!

  6. Happy Anniversary! I love your softer looking cards, especially the soft way you colored the embossed flowers. As for the sentiment on the first card, I like the tiny sentiment. It was lost when you stamped it directly on a petal but was perfect when stamped on a sentiment strip. Thanks for the video and for sharing your beautiful work!

  7. Therese, your husbands does know you so well – after 30+ years he should, right? Congratulations. And congratulations on two more fabulous creations! LOve the first with all my favorite shades of colors – wouldn’t that make the most gorgeous cotton chintz?
    I knew this would sell out fast – hope they saved one set back for the prize!!

  8. I love the colors you used on the flowers. They are so soft … you inspire me to try using different colors.

  9. What beautiful cards – LOVE the color combos! I always lean toward the bright colors and this reminds me how gorgeous subtlety can be. Obviously this kit is super versatile – thank you for inspiring us!

  10. I want to try this kind of soft color palette with my layering set. I don’t have a big ink collection yet but I am getting there! Great job!

  11. I play this game when there’s a new release. I visit the altenew blog and pick my fave card from the bunch of designers, then go to yours. Nine times out of ten I’ve picked yours. You didn’t disappoint again. So elegant, so you! (even without your trademark bright colours). 🥰

  12. Happy Wedding Anniversary! Those flowers he gave you are gorgeous. I love this stamp, stencil and embossing folder set, and of course you’re color choices are spot on. I enjoyed your live session yesterday. It’s so nice to see you and get to respond in real time.

  13. I struggle to pick products that look great together. This kit will make it so easy to quickly assemble lots of cards. I can’t wait for mine to arrive so I can recreate the cards from the blog hop.

  14. I loved the subtle colors of these flowers. They don’t overpower the card, they are just soft and muted. Thanks for sharing.

  15. That embossed card is stunning! I love the coloring! It is a fantastic example of how to make the embossing pop !!

  16. First of, congrats on your anniversary! And now onto the cards! You did a splendid job creating these muted colored cards. The look very pretty! Thanks for the inspiration Therese!

  17. Very pretty! The little sentiment looks great. Great colour choices. Congratulations on 30 years!

  18. Congrats on your 30th anniversary! I love the muted colors especially the embossed card. Thanks for the video and sharing your process.

  19. Happy Anniversary!!! I LOVE your Beautiful cards!!! The colors are very shabby chic!!! Love!!!

  20. Happy 30th anniversary Therese! Gorgeous bunch of flowers, and equally gorgeous cards! Love your colour combinations. 🥰P.S. Our 44th anniversary is coming up in October! 😳 Where does the time go?

  21. Cards are so eye appealing, soft and captivating. Your work is phenomenal as usual. I love the easy, informative style of your videos. Another Altenew stunner – I do covet this set and wish you could purchase individual pieces as well as the group (a little more affordable when can purchase pieces over time.) Kudos to you for taking the challenge and running away with another winning make! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY and here’s to many, many more happy anniversaries to come.

  22. Lovely cards! I really like the soft colors you chose. It gives these cards such an elegant and old fashioned kit.

  23. Big, beautiful and lush flowers in such gorgeous colours. I can see the inspiration behind the cards from that bouquet. Happy anniversary! Thirty years is amazing.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  24. Happy anniversary. You must have been a child bride! Your cards are stunning. Love the softness. As usual you bring out the best in the products. Thanks for the inspiration.

  25. Happy Anniversary Therese! Stunning bouquet of flowers! Loving the muted tones on your beautiful cards. So different. Must give it a try. Always reach for my brighter colours. 🙂

  31. Congratulations on your 30th Wedding Anniversary! Wow! Flowers! I’m so jealous…I got a hand held radon detector for our most recent wedding anniversary. How romantic, right? When am I going to use that? Why? What is he trying to tell me??
    BTW- I love the muted colors on your card! I think the key to your gorgeous results is DEPTH of color in the shading. Just Terrific!

  32. Happy Anniversary! Hubby was so sweet to gift you those gorgeous flowers and your cards are, as always, gorgeous too! loved the process video 🙂

  35. Gorgeous, gorgeous cards!! These colors aren’t in my wheelhouse either, but you’ve inspired me to give them a try. Congrats on your 30th anniversary!

  36. Happy Anniversary! Your cards are gorgeous — I do love the muted colors. This is such an amazing kit.
