Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

 I'm so happy to be joining in the  Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop and I have a few cards I really enjoyed creating to share with you today.  You should have arrived here from Penny Pynnonen's blog, if not, you can start at the beginning at the Altenew Card Blog, where you will see Lydia's gorgeous creations.

This collection features daffodils, magnolias, a peony, an anemone, and sweet star balloons. The versatile products can be mixed and matched to create many inspiring projects!

First up I have used the Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit : 'MAGNOLIA & BLOOMS'

The kit includes Stamps and co-ordinating Stencil & Die. I've used all 3 on this card and the Altenew Blending Tools make it so easy.

This time I stamped the image on watercolour Paper and coloured with Altenew Artists'  Watercolour Paints. 


Next up are a couple of cards using the Stunning Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Open Peony (layering die set).

I used Designer Paper for this card with a bit of shading from Altenew Inks. You can see I stecilled a subtle background with Altenew Intricate Mandala Stencil. The sentiment is from Altenew Magnolia & Blooms.

I used coloured card stock this time and shaded with Altenew Inks and Nuvo Glitter Gloss Pen. I embossed the background with Altenew Magnolia & Blooms Embossing Folder. The sentiment is also from Magnolia & Blooms.


I hope you liked me cards and will be inspired to create with these wonderful products. Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win a gift certificate from Altenew.
