Altenew July 2022 Summer Sunshine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Welcome Friends! It's LauraJane, on the Summer Sunshine Collection Release Blog Hop at ALTENEW.  I hope you take time to do some crafting during this busy Summer season!

Summer Sunshine Full Release Bundle

My first card features ink blending with the new Captivating Blooms Stamp & Stencil Bundle. When my crafty MOJO is low, I simply use the beautiful packaging from Altenew to inspire me :)) 

Captivating Blooms Stamp & Stencil Bundle

Crisp Inks: Pink Diamond, Pinkolicious, Rubelite, Firefly, Olive, Volcano Lake Warm Sunshine

Next up, is the SENTIMENT filled Monsteras and Quotes Stamp & Die & Stencil Bundle. The tiny planter pot from a MINI DELIGHT stamp set became the base for several of the Monsteras leaves. The background matting is randomly stamped with ink spritzed with water from Fine Mister Bottle.

Mini Delight: Cactus Stamp & Die Set- planter

A second card featuring the Monsteras and Quotes with a simple background using the Monstera Frame 3D Embossing Folder and very water saturated mix of INK SPRAYS.
TIP: Try using die cuts from WHITE cardstock to bring in the balance of  WHITESPACE which make colored dies pop and draw attention to the sentiment.

Monsteras and Quotes Stamp & Die & Stencil Bundle

Ink Sprays: Forest Glades, Iridescent, splash of Lagoon

A bit of scribbling on the Mosaic Diamonds Stamp Set with a GOLD GEL PEN added some spice for left over floral blooms and frames. 
TIP: choose a coordinating ink color for background stamps to bring together a SCRAPPY freestyle cluster of elements.

Crisp Inks: Icy Water, Winter Lake, Caribbean Sky, Persian Blue, Misty Moor, Marshland, Moss
