Altenew May 2022 Dreams Come True Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

For all new items go to the Altenew shop at:

I used four products to create these 3 cards.

The first card uses the Always Be Kind set.

I stamped the flowers multiple times in order to fill the card front. Then I colored the flowers and background with Altenew’s Artist Markers in Green Valley and Azurite; that made it easy to get white flowers on my card (there’s just something I love about white flowers).

I added a green panel behind the card front (sorry, you can just barely see it in the photo) and then added it to the A2 card base which had been covered with Altenew’s Dotted Wide Washi Tape.

Altenew’s washi tapes are so much fun!

The next card is for the Poppy Arrangement coloring stencil.

The stamp set has been around for awhile, but I like it a lot. I used the coloring stencil to color my image. It was so easy! It’s hard to see the subtle layers of color in this photo. I love how this card turned out!

To make this card, I used these Altenew Crisp Dye Inks to color the image: Coral Bliss, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Fresh Leaf, and Shadow Creek.

While the stencil was still in place, I used a Detail Blending Brush to soften some of the edges I had created when using the stencils. You can barely tell that I even used a stencil to color the flowers and leaves.

I also used the gold gel pen from the Must-have Gel Pen Set to color in the ends of the stamen. These gel pens are the best I have ever used! I use them on almost every card I make.

I also used the Fine Liner Black pen to add the lines in the opposite corner. Small details can make a big impact.

Lastly, I stamped the sentiment using Obsidian Pigment Ink, and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. (See below for more info about this new stamp set.)

The Beautiful Inside stamp set is a big fan favorite. I used a sentiment from the new coordinating Add-On set on the card.

Here’s the link to the product:

My last card for this hop uses the Wispy Joy stamp set. This set is so cute! (You’re getting a sneak peek of an upcoming embossing folder).

The background (a piece from my stash) is so busy that I wanted simply colored flowers. So, I chose no coloring. I stamped the flowers and leaves from Kraft card stock and die cut them using my Mini Blossom die cutting machine from Altenew. It’s the best!

I used a stripe of Altenew’s Emerald Gold washi tape to ground the flowers.

I die cut the sentiment 3 times, once in black and twice in cream. I stacked them together for added dimension. The black layer is just peeking out below the cream layers.

And, I used my favorite gold gel pen (noted above) from Altenew to color the flower centers. Gotta have bling on the card!

Ok, I know this has been a very long post, but you’re almost to the end. I promise.
