 Hello everyone!! Welcome back to my blog. Today, I am so excited to be a part of the Altenew Marvelous Monthly Release Blog Hop. As always, Altenew has released some amazing products for the monthly subscriptions!


Peonies, tulips, gingerbread cookies, and more! This collection of products is just the thing to help you beat the seasonal blues. You are sure to find inspiration with these lovelies as you get creative in your craft space. I have 5 cards for you today.



First up is this card using the Build A Garden - Pristine Peonies. For this card, I decided to stamp the outline image and watercolor it. I then fuzzy cut it and added it on a black card stock for the dramatic look. Sentiment is also from the same stamp set.


The second card also uses the Pristine Peonies stamp set. This time, I heat embossed the outline image and used the stencil to color the image. It was super quick! The sentiment is also from the same set.


Next up, I have this card using the Craft A Flower - Tulip Full Bloom. This flower was so easy to make - the instructions made it really easy to make this beautiful layered flower. For the background, I used one of my all time favorites - Deck Planks 3D Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Fresh Freesia stamp set.


This card uses the Craft Your Life Project Kit - Floral Acanthus kit. I used the embossing folder to emboss a piece of white card stock and then used stencil to color it in. The sentiment is from the stamp set in the kit.


Last, but not least, is my card using the Paint A Flower - Hibiscus. I loved coloring the flowers with my alcohol markers. The sentiment is from the same stamp set.

If you've been following me for a while, you probably know that I love coloring floral images. You can imagine my feeling when I got to work with this release :)

Altenew September 2022 Winter Magic Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

 Hello everyone!! Altenew is releasing some amazing Winter themed products today and I'm so excited to hop along with some amazing designers to share some inspiration.


We love celebrating the winter season, and this release includes everything you need to do just that! Let your holiday cards shine with trendy typography, classic poinsettias, or a modern tree. A timeless wreath of mistletoe (with coordinating embossing folder and stencils!), winter florals, and hot foil plates and dies to finish off the release. 'Tis the season!

Here are the cards that I made with this release:


This first card uses the Layered Snowflakes 2 die set. I die cut the different snowflakes in 3 different shades of teal card stock and layered them. I added some blue/teal sequins for some sparkle. The sentiment is from the Winter Crocus stamp set. I added some snowflakes to the inside of the card too.


This adds just the perfect elegance to the inside of the card as well.


For the second card, I used the Mistletoe Wreath 3D Embossing folder and colored it with alcohol markers. The sentiment is from the Mistletoe Wreath stamp set


Next card uses the Shrub Rose layering stamp set. I decided to stamp the layers without the outline stamp to get a no-line look. I stamped and colored the berries with alcohol markers. I added the pine cone and leaves from the Pinecone stamp set, to make the flower arrangement more winter-like. I gold embossed the sentiment from Winter Crocus stamp set


For my final card, I stamped the Dotted Pinwheels in gold on black for the background. I stamped and colored the crocus flowers from the Winter Crocus stamp set and fussy cut and added to the background. The sentiment is from the Shrub Rose stamp set

Hello Coral Flowers

 Hello everyone!! Welcome back to my blog. I have a watercolored floral card to share with you today.


I made another card for the Altenew Inspiration Challenge this month. I stamped the Statement Flowers on watercolor cardstock with Ink on 3 Fadeout ink for no-line watercoloring. I used my watercolor pens to watercolor the image. I used coral and brown for the flowers and leaves. I decided to make this into a mini slimline card. I embossed the background with Deck Planks 3D Embossing Folder - one of my all time favorites and matted it with brown card stock. I die cut the sentiment using the Fancy Hello in brown and added it to the card.

What do you say? This color theme is one of my favorites! Do let me know what you think. Thank you for stopping by. Have a great day.

I embossed the background with Altenew Geo Triangles 3D Embossing Folder and matted with black card stock. The sentiment is from Gina K - Rose Bouquet mini stamp set.
