Altenew January Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway!



I’m so excited to be taking part in Altenew’s 2017 January release and blog hop, and if you arrived here from Jennifer McGuire’s amazing blog then you are exactly where you need to be.  Today we will be releasing 18 stamp sets, 18 die sets and 12 inks!

Today I have made three quite different cards from this amazing release starting with this sympathy card using the Be a Lighthouse stamp set.  It’s hard to tell, but I’ve popped up the whole front panel so it looks like the Dark Gray cardstock is inset.



My second card is a little more modern, using the fab silhouette girl and matching die from Let the Wind Carry You.  I’m still trying to work out if she’s holding a torch or a paintbrush…  so I’ll let you decide.  I also used some of the new colours from the release, bright greens, oranges and cool grays, it is a dream come true!



In true Altenew style the flowers from this release are amazing!  So for my final card I combined two sets together to create this sweet vase.  I used Smile More and Life is Beautiful along with some Altenew Artist Marker alcohol colouring (they are so beautiful to colour with…  I can’t wait for Altenew to make markers in all their ink colours, hint)




Now, to the good stuff and onto the Prizes and there are
two ways to win!

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away $50 gift certificate to three lucky winners.  Please leave a comment on the Altenew blog  by Thursday February 2nd at 11:59pm EST for a chance to win.  the Winners will be announced on the Altenew blog on Saturday February 4th.
