Altenew March 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends!  I am so excited to be joining in with the girls over at Altenew today for the March 2018 Release Hop.  Keep reading to check out my cards using the new sets, Rose Bouquet, Hope, and Focus on You.  There is also 2 different Giveaways to check out at the end of this post.  To see the entire March Release, click HERE
If you are following along on the blog hop, you have just left May's blog.  Isn't she the sweetest?  And so talented!  If you would like to see a complete list for today's hop, scroll down or head over to the Altenew Blog for all the details.

CARDS

I adore Altenew's genius layering stamps.  The flowers are so easy to stamp and turn out beautifully with the layers of color and intricate details.  I used the Warm and Cozy and Green Fields ink sets from Altenew to create these flowers....

Untitled

I layered it with a black and white striped pattern paper and then finished if off with a sentiment from the new Wildflower Garden Stamp Set and some clear droplets.

_____________________________________

Another new flower set this month is called Hope.  These big blooms are beautiful and work great for a background or just one simple detail on a card.

Untitled

I used the new Doodle Die for the background.  I added in some Picked Raspberry Oxide Ink Blending along the bottom for on ombre style background.  I added in one bloom and set of leaves with a heat embossed sentiment and sentiment die to complete the card.

_____________________________________

If you follow my blog, you know I love clean and simple.  And white space!  So I had to throw in one CAS card today.

Untitled

This set is called Focus on You.  The flower stems are so easy to color and die cut.  I stamped that sentiment in black ink and added the bloom on top with foam tape for dimension.  Definitely a quick and easy card for a friend!

The next stop on the hop is over to Enza's blog.  :)
