Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4 + Giveaway

Hello Everyone, welcome to Altenew's 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 4. You should have arrived from Reiko Tsuchida's Blog.

For this project I used Altenew's Floral Garden and Garden Treasure stamp set. I distressed my background with Distress Ink pad in Chipped Sapphire and Seedless Preserves, then splattered the background with water using my small watercolor brush.

I then gold heat embossed the sentiment also from Altenew's Floral Garden and added some Diamond Stickles on the flower and leaves for added interest. 

Next, I adhered the die-cut with foam tape for dimension.
I hope you guys enjoyed!

Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello Everyone, welcome to Altenew March 2018 Blog Hop! We have lots of inspiration for you. You should have arrived from Terhi Koskinen's blog. If this is your first stop just click HERE to start at Altenew blog.

You will enjoy this release lots of stitching die if you love stitching, lots of other cool stamps and dies as well. For this first card I use the new Hope Stamp SetHope Die Set, and Mandala Die Set

First, I stamped the sentiment on a brown cardstock and white heat embossed the words, then die-cut the hope on a brown cardstock.

Next, I stamped the flower image using Hope Stamp Set and die-cut it with Hope Die Set.  I also distressed the white card base with peacock feather Distress Ink then I glued the Mandala Mandala Die Set on top of the distressed card base.

For this second card I used the new Cross Stitch Canvas DieSweet Rose Bouquet Stamp Set and thank you sentiment from Many Thanks Stamp set.
 This cross stitch die is super cool. So instead of creating a crossed stitched I simply made some embroidered on my card using the stamped image.
 Next, I spattered some gold watercolor ink and distressed the cardstock for added interest.

For my last and final card I used the Pegboard Canvas Cover Die
 I simply stitched the corners and added the cotton image from Cotton Comfort stamp set.
 Here's the close-up the card.

I hope you enjoyed!
