Altenew Educators "Favorite Old/New Altenew Stamp" Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

I hope you enjoyed visiting with Roteja Galvan and now its my turn to share. 

We're back with another hop with the Educators.  Its been a pleasure to hop with so many talented people. Altenew Educator Program helped me to be a better card maker, paper craft artist and I hope you will check out the program available here: Altenew Certified Educator Program

I went with cards for the gals, one more women of any age and one for a young girl or teen. 
My old and new favs are the Label Love and the Leaf Border die, I hope you will enjoy the blog hop.

I loved the mix of the favorites, I've always loved Label Love stamp set, it was the very first stamp I purchased from Altenew, it wasn't my last. The Leafy Border Die is my new fav!  I used Frayed Leaf Cardstock and added Green Fields Oval inks to give it more depth.  

The layers on my first card are always a great look.  The White cardstock with a simple 1/4 reveal onto lifted onto a full A2 cardbase is a great layout. But the florals are the show stopper. 

Them Build A Flower: Sakura Blossom just brings everything together. Inked with Red Cosmos for the blooms and Happy Birthday sentiment  make it a subtle beauty. 

No card is complete without some bling and a beautiful sentiment, the Make Today Beautiful is inked in Obsidian Black. I loved this card so much when I finished it.  


My second card was a personal challenge, could I make another card with the items above and make it totally different, yes of course I could.  This time I started by adding one additional piece to the puzzle. The Rounded Rectangles Die was perfect. 

I started by stamping the bloom onto my cardstock, using the two lightest shades from Red Cosmos in a repeating pattern. Then I die cut it with the Rounded Rectangles die. 

I colored the Leafy Border Die in Cotton Candy mini ink cube. It give a mid tone to the Red Cosmos inks.  Also made two of the Build A Flower: Sakura Blossom the circle dots in Obsidian ink to add to the retro feel. To complete this card I added a few Red Cosmos Enamel Dots, using the Hearts.  Made with 80 lbs. White cardstock,
