Altenew February 2022 Flowers & Swirls Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hello everyone and welcome to the Flowers & Swirls Collection release blog hop by Altenew. This release has GORGEOUS standalone dies and a pretty stamp too.
 You might have come here from Erum Tasneem's blog.


Since this is going to be a long post, grab a cup of your favourite drink and enjoy :)

I have six cards for you today
For the first card I decided to use the pretty Whispy Feathers layered feathers dies along with the Artists watercolor, Tartan stamp, Label Love stamp and the Delicate Mandala die.




Next I have a couple of CAS cards, As these dies are so dainty and intricate, I wanted to focus on the dies only. I used  the Swirly Elements die here along with some crisp die inks in blues and greens.
The sentiment is from the Magnolia Ballerina stamp.


 For the next card I used the Starlight die with crisp die ink and the sentiment from the Label Love stamp.


 
Next I have a slimline mixed media card. I used the Dainty Leaves dies along with the Broken Chevrons stencil and the sentiment from Magnolia Ballerina stamp. I also used the Artists watercolor and embossing paste here.

 

For the next two cards I used the Magnolia Ballerina stamp and dies in two different techniques. For this card I stamped the image onto watercolor paper using white embossing powder, added multiple colors from the Artists watercolor palette. Die-cut and adhere to a white cardbase.
 
 

Here I stamped and embossed the image using Rose Gold embossing powder onto vellum. Added some color using copic markers. Sponged the edges a bit to finish the soft look.


 
All the supplies are listed below
