Altenew Storybook Fantasy Release Blog Hop!

 Hi guys!

Welcome to my stop on the Altenew, Storybook Fantasy release blog hop! I love the beautiful products in this release and am so excited to share some inspiration with you!


If you're following along on the hop, you should've arrived here from Svitlana's blog. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, click here to be taken to the Altenew Card blog.


Altenew is running a free gift promotion to celebrate this release! There are three different ways to get a free gift, as the banner below explains. The free gift will be added to your shopping cart automatically.


To celebrate even more, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to two lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to ten winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and each designer’s blog hop post by 03/15/2021 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw the twelve random winners from blog hop comments and announce them on the Altenew Winners Page on 03/17/2021.


Okay, let's get started on some inspiration! I really enjoyed creating with these products! You all know I love flowers, so you won't be surprised to see them on each card today.

This first card was created using the beautiful, Fairy Tale Rose stamp set and some water coloring. It's a simple design but I added some dimension with the shadow around the rose, plus a bit of splatter.


This next card was created using the lovely, Book Engravings stamp set. It's actually a layering set but I always struggle with stamping flowers with a layered ink technique. Don't ask me why, it just isn't my thing. But luckily, there are open images in this set that are perfect for coloring! I watercolored this one too.


And last but not least is this amazing, gorgeous, Ranunculus Bouquet 3D embossing folder! Oh, my gosh, this folder gives unbelievable dimension! After running it through my embossing machine, I added color, to just the raised areas, by carefully adding ink using some blending brushes. I love the results!


And that's a wrap for me. I hope I've given you a bit of inspiration for using these fabulous products!

Up next on the hop is my dear friend, Virginia at her blog, Yes Virginia.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the hop.
