I’m so excited to be taking part in Altenew’s 2016 May release and blog hop, and if you arrived here from Sveta Fotinia’s blog then you are exactly where you need to be. Today we will be releasing 16 stamp sets and 10 dies and to be honest I just couldn’t stop making cards with this release, it’s so wonderful! So this is a very photo heavy post, and the fun deets are there if you scroll on down, have FUN!
Here is my first card for today,
Time for a CAS tone on tone background using those fabulous gray inks and the pale gray cardstock from Altenew. I used the new Dahlia Blossoms layering stamp set and stamped out my own sentiment with the Calligraphy Alpha (I wish my handwriting was this beautiful).
I decided to film as I created this card to show just how easy it came together.
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.
And for my second and fave card for this release I have used new flower set called Spring Daisy, but instead of being a daisy I have coloured them as gerberas on my design. Yes, they are my favourite flowers and I think it’s because they are so bright and fun. I embossed the sentiment and it’s from the Dahlia Blossoms set, and added some pale gray and woodgrain cardstock for a bit of punch.
And for my final set of cards I used the Best Dad and Best Mom sets which are both very special sets because if you buy them before June 19th Altenew will donate 20% of the profits to an internation charity organization, the Zakat Foundation, to support seniors in need. This is another great way for you to show the support an the love of our crafting communtiy! I also used some sentiments from the Beautiful Quotes stamp set, which I thought worked perfectly with these wonderful images.
