Altenew’s Lasting Hearts Blog Hop

Hi there everyone and a very happy Monday! I have had a very exciting weekend in London, filming shows for Altenew on Create and Craft USA- 10 hours of shows I had over the whole weekend and it was a blast!

I’m so glad you have stopped by today we at Altenew are having a card drive in honour of seniors. You should have come from May‘s blog but don’t worry if you didn’t I have a blog hop list in my post or you could start at the beginning at the Altenew Blog.

On Monday, April 4th we are releasing a special collection of 3 new stamp sets (Best Dad, Best Mom and Penned Rose) which would be perfect for creating Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards. These stamp sets were designed especially for the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and 20% of the profits earned by Father’s Day will be donated.


Our goal is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. We would love you to check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in cards

I have used the new ‘Best Mom’ set- I’m so excited that there is a ‘Mum’ stamp in this set for those of us on this side of the big pond…


For this card I stamped the large floral sprig all over my card base in Frosted Pink Crisp Ink. I then took a pink, green and orange coloured pencil and traced over the pink lines- I just love how this looks and that I can get different colour outlines on the images.


The sentiment is a mix of the ‘Mum’ from ‘Best Mom’ and ‘you are amazing’ from ‘Penned Rose’.
