Altenew Educator "For the Love of Flowers" Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to my very first blog hop with Altenew, as an Altenew Certified Educator! You should have arrived here from Nancy McClelland's blog, but if not the link list is below or you can visit Altenewblog.com.

Just a little about me, I love being a participant of the Altenew Educator Certification Program and being certified is beyond my dreams. The Coordinators were amazing, as are the class instructors.  The classes never expire and you can take each class at your pace.  They even have a few free classes to get you started. Check them out here Altenew Academy

As you may have guessed by now our hop theme is for the love of flowers. I chose both traditional and contemporary styles of florals. That's the best part of loving Altenew products, they have something for everyone! 



Let's start with my contemporary card.
I started by using the Bold Floral Drape stamp set, in the Sweet Dreams Oval Ink collection.
I used the Sweet Dream Ink, to layer each of the images onto the card front by overlapping each of them until my 4 1/4 by 5 1/2 (A2) card was filled.  Then I die cut it with the incredible Pegboard Canvas Cover Die



With the sentiment from the More Than Words stamp set in Obsidian Black Ink, on white cardstock. Along with Golden Edge Washi. Behind the Bold Floral Drape, is a layer of Navy cardstock which completes this card beautifully!  




My more traditional card.
This is a classic beauty, with simple lines and elegance. Like the first card, I used the Sweet Dreams Oval Ink collection. Peony Bouquet is one of those stamp sets everyone must have in their collection from Altenew.  I used its various stamps in the set to complement the gorgeous floral image.
Again I used the same More than Words stamp set in Obsidian Black ink for my sentiment. It's a great way to tie the cards together, even if they are completely different in styles. The same goes for the Golden Edge washi tape.  Finally, the Lagoon cardstock is incredible and matches perfectly with the Sweet Dreams inks!
