Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway


Happy, Happy 4 years Altenew!
It has been a joy to see you grow up and become one of the Trend Setters in the papercrafting industry:))

Welcome to my stop for DAY 2 of  Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop.
To celebrate the occasion, I wanted to create several Spring themed cards using the WINGS of HOPE stamp and die set. A lovely set of solid floral images that can be simply inked or colored in to add a personal touch.

For my first card I enjoyed lightly inking the images on white cardstock and then Coloring them in with ZIGGYS:)) Next, I cut them out with the coordinating dies and popped the blooms and branches onto a cardfront with the Our Family Frame die cut from vellum.  The sentiment is from BAF: Anemone, heat embossed in GOLD embossing powder..

 In The Mood For Color is an excellent class taught by Stephanie Klauck at  ALTENEW ACADEMY. I highly recommend checking it out:)

For my next two cards, I stamped the WINGS of HOPE  with crisp inks and then doodled in a few lines. This technique, was learned in the class, BEAUTIFUL DETAILS, taught by Marika Rahtu...oh! how I miss her lovely cards and sweet nature!
**Sentiment from DAHLIA BLOOMS

**Sentiment from ORIENTAL ORCHID

Hope you enjoyed my cards today and are inspired to create something you LOVE!
