Altenew May Release Blog Hop

May2016_ReleaseBlogHop

Hi there and happy Friday!

I’m so excited you stopped by today and I’m also super excited that I’m part of Altenew’s May Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from the awesome Anna, but if not don’t worry there is a hop list at the bottom of my post.

So Altenew are releasing 16 stamp sets and 10 dies on May 13th…. yay! You are sure to find something you love ! So on to my cards….

My first card showcases the new stamp set Dahlia Blossoms and Beautiful Quotes

Dahlia, Beautiful Quotes- Lydia Evans

I used Blush and Rouge to stamp the flower layers and Moon Rock to stamp the outlines- I just love the soft look this creates. The leaves were stamped in Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades and outline in Moon Rock also.

My second card showcases Spring Daisy and Halftone Smile

Lydia Evans- Altenew Daisy, Smile 2

For this I didn’t even use the second/outline layer. I love the mottled look that these layers have.

You could used these daisies as gerberas by stamping the petals in bright colours or use as a sunflower – like I have done on this background.

To finish I used the both layers of the ‘smile’ in black and a little added sentiment from the same set.

For my last card I used Penned Rose, Painted Rose, Calligraphy Alpha and From The Desk Of…..

Lydia Evans- Altenew Penned Rose, Painted Rose, Alpha, Desk

I just love love love how Penned Rose and Painted Rose work so well together to create a stunning 4 layered rose. I stamped the rose images at the bottom of my card layer, and added the layers in very light coloured inks.

How beautiful is the calligraphy font?!?! I just love how it looks like I have written it myself. The ‘Save The Date’ is from ‘From The Desk Of’.

I thought it would be fun to stamp some envelopes to match this card using  Calligraphy Alpha and From The Desk Of….

Lydia Evans- Altenew, Alpha Desk

I really do love that font….swoon!
