Altenew November 2017 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi there and happy Wednesday. I’m so excited to be here with you today as part of the Altenew new Release. You should have arrived here from the awesome Enza Gudor, but if not don’t worry there is a hop list at the bottom of my post. Or you could even start at the beginning at the Altenew Scrapbook Blog.

Today we are releasing new stamps and dies! So lots of amazing NEW products to be having fun with! I have had soooo much fun with these new products!!

I have one card to share with you today using the beautiful Story Of Us Stamp Set:

I started by stamping the first layer of the beautiful rose in Frosty Pink and the leaves in a mix of Frayed Leaf to cover the whole front of my card base, I then went over the flowers with the other layers using Cotton Candy, Coral Berry and then Ruby Red.

For the sentiment I used one from the same set and white heat embossed it onto a piece of black card. For the striped strip underneath it I used the striped border from Basic Borders Stamp Set.


And what’s a blog hop without prizes?!?! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Thursday, November 16th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog on Saturday, November 18th.. Also, also, also leave a comment on this post for a chance of winning a $30 gift certificate for the Altenew online store! Win, win right?!?

    Altenew floral stamps are very deceiving, they are so beautiful and intricate when stamped but the stamp does all the work! I love watching the flowers take shape with each additional layer.
