This post is also available in Українською мовою
Hello everyone! I’m so very excited to be joining Altenew for the special release blog hop!
Yes, you guessed it right – Altenew now not only sells stamps but also dies that coordinate perfectly! Want to see them in action? Scroll down to see my project and hop along our design team blogs to find more inspiration.
One more product that will definitely catch your attention – the new Antique Trims. Head over to the Altenew blog to find out more about it.
Here’s a look at my card. I wanted to create a bright and contrasting project, so I used black cardstock for my card base. I stamped and colored the branches and flowers from the Doodle Blooms set using greens and aqua colors and cut them out using matching dies.
For my sentiment I used the beautiful “Your kindness makes such a difference” one from the Sentiments and Quotes set.
To give this project a bit of sparkle I used my Wink Of Stella glitter pen and added a touch of glitter to the flowers. I also scattered a few enamel dots around that floral cluster and that finished my project!
