Hi there! Welcome to my stop of the Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 1! If you’ve been hopping along with us, you would have arrived here from May’s blog, however if you’re joining us just now, you’ll find the full list of blog hop participants at the bottom of this post. Shall we begin!?
Since the day I started cardmaking, I have been welcomed into this big crafty community with open arms. I have gained so many new friends in this world, and all that share the same love for stamping, coloring, painting, and cardmaking as I do! It is such a loving community, and I’m so thankful to be a part of it. Today’s blog hop is filled with many of my crafty friends all brought together by Altenew, and we all share our love for Altenew products!
My card features the beautiful Sketchy Floral stamp set. I love love love this stamp. It is a humongous stamp and even covering way past the A2 size of this card, so you can definitely stamp in multiple ways and still produce a different looking card. I love sketchy like florals more than realistic ones, so I adored this set. I went along with a very loose watercoloring of this image.
I trimmed the watercolored panel down just slightly smaller than an A2 frame, and gently added Vintage Photo distress ink blended onto the edges. I heat embossed a sentiment from the Adore You stamp set in white onto Lagoon cardstock. I trimmed it and gave it an angled edge.
Right above it, I wanted the large words ‘thanks’ which I die cut out of the Enchanted Iris Die set. I specifically went for this die because it was the perfect size without covering up much of my floral image. I didn’t want to cover up all my hard work!
Thanks for dropping by and head on over to our next crafty friend, Svitlana!
