Altenew August 2020 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Today we are hopping along to share the latest August Release over at Altenew.  I have a quick and simple card to share today using my newest favorite.  This stamp set is called Beauty Within....


Altenew


First, I scored a yellow card base every half inch, except for an inch and a half along the bottom for the sentiment.  I stamped "you make me smile" in Altenew's Obsidian Black ink.


Altenew


Next, I stamped and colored up these gorgeous blooms with Altenew's Alcohol Markers.  They were so easy to color using a simple flicking technique.  I popped the blooms and leaves up on foam tape for some dimension to finish off the card.

Altenew also has the most fun new Wax Seal Kits too!

This is the Wax Seal Stamp Set - With Love along with the Garnet Wax.
