Hello Friends. I am SO excited and honored to be apart of this months Altenew April Release Blog Hop party. You should have arrived from Kymona's Blog.
Last month, when May contacted me to pick out the products I wanted to design with, it was not an easy task, I loved them all. Thank you Altenew for letting me review your awesome products!
One of the products I am most excited about is the NEW Crafter’s Essential Stamping Mat! It's great for stamping, watercolor, ink blending, heat embossing, and everyday crafting! It is also a great backdrop for your photos!! Smiles.
Now, let's take a peek at my card samples!
Sweet Spring Stencil
I absolutely love Altenew's layering stencils! When I am in the mood to create a quick card on the go, I almost always grab a layering stencil. They are easy to use and they create a WOW factor for even the simplest looking cards. I paired some of my favorite Altenew ink colors: Sunray & Snapdragon and Mountain Mist & Teal Cave.
Dog Rose Panel & Die
Oh my goodness! Next up, is the amazing Dog Rose Panel and Die Bundle Set. I love the versatility of this die set. As you can see, in Card One I used one die-cut panel, in Card Two I used two die-cut panels to fill the entire card front. Combine the layers together and you will have a third option! Talk about getting a big bang for your buck!! This is a MUST buy item!!
Statement Flowers Stamp & Die
Well. some may say-- I left the best for last. For me, I could not pick a favorite set. Each card has its own uniqueness. I also love the stamp set, called Statement Flowers paired with its very own die (love that). I am a sucker for big, bold flowers that I can color.... or not! As you can see in the first sample it is beautiful colored, but in the second sample it is beautiful with only a splash of color.
Well, there you have it... I hope you enjoyed my creations as much as I do. I hope I inspired you to create your own cards after you load up your shopping cart w/all the new products you're gonna want. Be sure to hop along, leaving comments so you can get in on some prizes and giveaways!
