Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

April 3, 2020 at 2:00 pm 166 comments

Hello! How are you? It’s an exciting week as Altenew celebrate their 6th Birthday. I remember their very first stamp sets and it’s amazing to see how much they’ve developed and grown! I’m delighted to be part of a blog Hop with some fab talented designers and some awesome prizes.

A special welcome if you’ve come to my blog from Irina Fonina’s blog!

I’m starting off with some projects- and I’ll tell you more about the prizes and sponsors as we go! Firstly- my favourite first…

Aren’t the florals in the Simple Beauty set gorgeous?! I’ll never tire of this set. I’ve used 3 colours of Inks across the two flowers and some extra Prismacolor pencils to add shading.

You might also spy the Tartan stamp set that I’ve trimmed around and cut out the middles. The sentiment is from Ornamental Bliss. As part of the blog Hop there are lots of wonderful sponsors offering prizes to you as you hop around each blog.

The idea is that you’ll visit each blog and the more comments you leave, the greater the chances. To make the hop more exciting, start your comments with ‘Hi from ( city or country where you’re from). 37 winners will be chosen at random from comments left by 4/12/2020 on any of the blogs listed and then announced on the Altenew Card Blog on 4/18/2020.

Onto my second project

We are in a really challenging time, and I’m so glad this Birthday celebration can distract us a little. I thought ‘hope’ was a timely sentiment to be sending to a friend. The background is fussy cut ( I know- it was a little ambitious of me, but very relaxing) after using the Linear stencil.

You can see the cut outs and the Black Soot ink rubbed over the stencil. I also used the Caps Bold Alpha dies which are my new favourites!

I’ve inked them partially and added gel pen and black marker dots and some drops to match the ink colour. By the end, it reminded me a little of a big wheel!

Before I post my last project, it’s worth sharing about the prizes on offer and also the shipping deals.

Add the codes to get Free U.S. shipping or $5 off international shipping! (These aren’t valid on prior purchases and can’t be combined with other promo codes). Here’s all the prizes you could be in with a chance of winning.

Here’s my last project!

I love sending cards with encouraging sentiments. the main image and stamped part of the sentiment are from Ornamental Bliss and I’ve used the Caps Bold Alphas again. I’ve used the same technique for the letters although a little more subtly and just partially stamped one of the main images in the stamp set.

All in all, the 6th Birthday blog hops are going to be a fab event. We’re on Day 2 and there are 4 days in total. Do start off at the Altenew Card Blog for all the details. Here’s the full list in today’s hop:

    Thank you. Our family started stamping together only a few months ago. We’re hoping to expand our crafting supplies with a MISTI and a die cutting machine someday. We love the way creativity in our home through paper crafting can be enjoyed as a family activity with all ages.

    Hi from Vancouver Island, BC, Canada. You’ve been busy! I really like the first card you made with the different elements that give it dimension. You fussy cut the background for your second card?!?! And you found it relaxing. That is something I’ll never understand as I am cutting challenged. lol Good on you though as you did a fabulous job. I love the Caps Bold Alphas & hope one day to purchase them. I really like the partial colouring & details you added. Your sentiments are perfect for this strange time we are in. Happy 6th Anniversary Altenew!
