Altenew June 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway




Hello there! I am super happy to be joining Altenew for their June 2018 Release Blog Hop! There are so many beautiful products coming out this month! I have a few cards to share with you, that will hopefully inspire you with fun ways to create with these awesome new products! 

If you are following the hop you will have come from Sandra Dietrich's blog HERE.

 If you would like to start from the beginning you can go to the Altenew Blog HERE.





For this card, I have used the new stamp set called Ditsy Print. It is just adorable and has the cutest little clusters of flowers that you create by layered stamping. After I stamped the flowers and leaves in the layers that are suggested, I also added a few extra leaves and flowers around the clusters. I also splattered around them with a small amount of gray ink mixed with water. 






***





This card was created with the Leaf Canopy stamp set. It has outline stamps and then solid stamps you can use to fill in the leaves. I used only the outline stamps, stamped them with waterproof black ink on watercolor paper, then watercolored them with Peerless watercolors.  I also splattered some of the same colors of watercolor around after I was finished. 





***



For this card, I used the Moroccan Mosiac stamp set, which I love by the way! I stamped it with black ink onto plain white card stock, and colored each of the sections with Zig Clean Color Brushes. It is so much fun to color these type stamps in different colors. So many different looks and patterns will emerge! Geometric designs are so much fun! After I was done with the coloring, I splattered it a bit with some white ink. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder, cut out with a banner die, and adhered with foam tape.






Prizes:

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Wednesday, June 20th for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 6/24/2018.

You can find all of the new products HERE!

Thank you so much for stopping by! Below is the whole blog hop line up! Enjoy!
