Altenew May 2020 Stamps/Dies/Stencils Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello!  We are hopping along today with Altenew and the latest May 2020 Release.   I have a couple projects to share today so keep scrolling.  You will also see the prizes....don't forget to leave a comment for your chance to win!  There is a full hop list too, so don't forget to stop in and leave comments along the way!


Here is my first project....


Altenew


This card uses a new favorite, Shine Like a Diamond.  This amazing background comes with several sentiments and one large sentiment, Shine.  So many possibilities with this set!


Altenew


First, I heat embossed the background stamp with white embossing powder on black cardstock.  I stamped the beautiful blooms from the new set Flowering Cistus and layered them on to the embossed background.  Last, I added in 2 sentiment strips that I made from Sentiment Strips 2.


Altenew


This next card was super simple to make!


Altenew


I used the new set called Blossom Wreath for this card.  I stamped the wreath in black ink, and then added the extra steps in different colors to create the full wreath.  


Altenew


I used the Tall Alpha to add in the Hello sentiment and this finished the card off with a thin gold washi along the bottom of the card.
