Altenew July 2022 Summer Sunshine Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

 Hello everyone! I'm so excited to be a part of the Altenew July Release blog hop today. Today Altenew is releasing some beautiful crafty products for us. I'm so happy to be a guest designer for this blog hop.

There are so many beautiful stamps, dies, stencils, embossing folders and hot foil plates. This release has a variety of designs to choose from. As always, Altenew has a lot of giveaway with this blog hop. Be sure to read through to the end to see more about the giveaways.

I have made 4 cards for today's blog hop.

The first one uses the Monstera Frame 3D Embossing Folder and the Monstera and Quotes Stamp set. I colored the Monstera leaves with alcohol markers and added the sentiment in the center. I embossed a piece of brown card stock with Deck Planks 3D Embossing Folder and adhered the monstera frame on to it. Even though it's not very visible, I think it adds a nice touch to the card.

Next card uses the Summer Wishes Stamp Set. It's so versatile! I decided to use the shells and starfish on my card. I stamped, colored and fussy cut them. For the background, I took a piece of white cardstock, embossed it with Ribbon Waves 3D Embossing Folder and inked it with light blue ink. I inked a small piece of white card stock with sand colored ink. I adhered the background panels, the shells and starfish on to the card base. I stamped the sentiment and finished off with a few tiny pearls.

I have used the Linear Life: Tropical Garden Stamp Set for my next card. I stamped the flowers, colored them with alcohol markers and fussy cut them to make this card. I used the Woven Stencil to add a little color to the card base first. Then I adhered the flowers and leaves on to it. I stamped the sentiment using white ink on black card stock. I added a few sequins for a final touch.

For my final card, I have used the Mosaic Diamonds stamp set. This is a beautiful set, that can be used for quick cards like this, or used as a background in other cards. I die cut the sentiment using the Fancy Thanks die and added it on to the card, along with a few sequins.

Great cards! I really like the first two cards. I have the embossing folder you used for water- now I have a great card design- thanks! I also have the stencil you used for your background, and am looking forward to using it the same way you did. I have many Altenew flower and die sets I plan to use as well. Until I buy some of these new sets LOL!

All your card designs are lovely. I love the simplicity of the one using the Mosaic Diamonds stamp and how that could be a masculine card. Beautiful work. Thank you for sharing.
