Altenew 9th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway (over $2,200 in Total Prizes)

 


Welcome here as we continue celebrating Altenew's 9th Anniversary! 

Your previous stop was Natasha Davis and the hop starts at the Altenew Card Blog.

I'm excited to share some Altenew inspiration with you and I used the Craft your Life Project Kit: Bewitching Rose.


I love the large size of this image and used all the products on this one card. After inking the stamped image with the coordinating stencils I lightly inked white card stock with the ink remaining on the Mini Ink Blending tools and then embossed with the Project Kit embossing folder.


I've used the Cherry Blossom, Green Meadows and Sea Shore Crisp Dye Inks in addition to Jet Black.

The sentiment is stamped with Altenew Clear Embossing Ink and heat embossed with Antique Silver Embossing Powder.

9th Anniversary Special Offers

FREE Mini Blending Brush Set with every order of the brand new Billowing Peonies Bundle!
