Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome! I am honored to be part of this special Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop. You should have come here from the amazingly talented Enza Gudor's blog. If you want to start at the beginning of the hop, head over to Altenew's blog here


Altenew is celebrating parents, not only with this hop, but also with a very important card drive. Their goal is to send cards to the elderly who live in nursing homes and shelters, to let them know they're not forgotten. We want these important people to feel loved, celebrated and honored and we need your help! 

PLEASE check out the, "Celebrating Parents Blog Hop" page HERE to read more about this important cause and to see the details of how you can participate.

For my first card I used the Best Dad stamp and Die Bundle. There are so many wonderful elements in this set, which would be perfect for any style. I combined this with the pattern paper and enamel dots are from the New Day Card Kit. I colored the images using copic markers.


Here is a close-up to see all the details of the images.


Now, I wanted to create a card for my mom. For which I used this pretty layered Watercolor Bouquet stencil. I am so happy at the way my card turned out. I also used the Script Word Dies and Floral Garden stamp set from the New Day Card Kit to create the sentiment. Fun right? :)

Love how you used the floral stencil! Beautiful color palette.
The mom/dad Altenew stamps are awesome... I only wish their customer service was better - I placed an order back in February and am still waiting for the replacement items (stamps and a dry ink) that were never shipped to me. I have even received another of my orders in the meantime. :(
