$300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 04/20/2022 for a chance to win. 

Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 04/22/2022.


I started by creating with the lovely Morning Flowers layering stamp set.  I then went through my collection of prints and chose one from the Verdant Walk paper pack. The yellows are always a beautiful combination after a long winter.  I used Snap Dragon, Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Firefly, Grass Field, Shadow Creek, Mocha and Espresso mini inks to create the color combo.  Using the sentiment hugs and the halftone Circle dies I laid out the flowers in corner display.  

For the second card using the Morning Flowers layering stamp set I used the same color scheme as before and added my print behind on the inside of the card.  I did the same with the sentiment only using a larger circle from the die set.  As a last touch I added the Antique gold sequins. 





For the Classic Greenhouse Die set, I used the Watercolor Brush Markers Spring Garden set to color on Altenew's water color paper pad. For the sentiment I used one form Castle Garden stamp set inked in Obsidian Black. 



Castle Garden stamp set  I started with a piece of Altenew Watercolor paper and colored my blooms with various colors: Just Green, Green Onyx, Volcano Lake, Warm Sunshine, Purple Wine, Autumn Blaze and Bamboo.  I did the splatters method where you ink up your block with a color, add water and then splatter ink from the block to your paper.  Then I added a bit of color in areas that didn't get any. To finish up this design, I added Enamel Dots and a sentiment from the set.


This time I used the Castle Garden stamp set in a very clean design. Circle Quilt Cover die in white cardstock for the background.  I used my alcohol makers Mediterranean Terrace  and Cosmic Garden sets to color the image. I used the Instant Dimension Foam Tape for a lift of the layers. Along with a simple sentiment from the stamp set. 


For my last design, I used Castle Garden once again, however this time I did it in black and white with a touch of color. With another pattern paper under it, the Summer Garden paper pad was perfect to show how beautiful the stamp is by itself. I did a touch of color in the centers of the blooms with Seashore Crips Oval Ink . I added a sentiment for the set in Obsidian Black.
