Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway


Hi crafty friends, it’s day three of Altenew’s 6th anniversary blog hop and if you’re looking for a bit of distraction from the fears and worries of the past few weeks, you’ve come to the right place. 💛 We’ve got lots of inspiration and ideas for you, as well as tons of prizes and special offers!

If you arrived from Nathalie DeSousa’s blog, you’re right on track. If you want to hop along from the beginning, visit the Altenew Blog. Check the bottom of this post for the full blog hop list!


For this special blog hop, I used the beautiful Handpicked Bouquet stamp set.  Onto Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock, I stamped the outline layer in black dye ink.  Then I stamped the three flower layers in Sunray, Chamomile, and Snapdragon, stamping the lightest layer first and then adding the darker layers on top.  For the leaves, I used Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades.  I used the coordinating die to cut out the image and then set it aside.

For the background, I got out a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock and used foam blending tools to blend Wild Honey, Dried Marigold, and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide inks onto the panel.  Next, I trimmed the panel to 4″x5.5″ and stamped a sentiment, from the Fancy Greetings stamp set, in black pigment ink.

To assemble the card, I adhered the ink-blended panel to an A2-sized card base, and then adhered the floral image with foam tape.

Thanks so much for visiting!  Check out the giveaways below before you head on to visit Nenette Madero.

  1. Hi from northern Alberta, Canada! 🙂 I love the soft gradation of colour in the background. It’s a subtle touch that makes such an impact!

  2. Hello from Minnesota! That background from sunny yellow into pale rose is divine, and the whole card feels like one big warm hug. Thanks for sharing your creative talents on the hop! Take care and be well!
