Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway



Hello and welcome everyone! I am super excited and delighted to be a part Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 over at Altenew.

Time sure does fly. I still remember when Tasnim and Jen started the company and for me it was love at first sight. I've loved their product since. Congratulations Tasnim and Jen! Here is to many more celebrations.

Now, you might have come here from the very talented Barb Engler's blog. I not start at the Altenew Card Blog.

Let's start :) I went for a CAS style for my first card along with a shaker window for an added interest. I used the GORGEOUS Leaf Medallion Die as my focal image. I die-cut the inside part of this 2 part die and backed it with a lovely pattern using the paper from the New Day Card Kit. I then die-cut a window from the center and created a shaker window. I die-cut the word "HUGS" from the
Script Word Dies and adhered it to the card.



Here is a close up to see this pretty pp.



For my 2nd. card I used lots of different products and went for my favourite mixed media kind of look :) I did some no-line watercoloring for this card. Love how it turned out.

I used Leaf Medallion Die once again to create a base for the floral cluster. I used Sketched Lines Stencil for the background. For the flowers, I used the Delicate Primrose stamp set with the Delicate Primrose die and the Engraved Flowers stamp set. For colouring I used the Daniel Smith watercolours. If you like my creations, lets become friends on Instagram, where I share many more :)
