Welcome to the annual Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop! I’m so thrilled to be part of this wonderful hop alongside so many of my crafty friends and a company that I dearly love working with. Altenew established in 2014, just a few months before I started crafting, and I had been a huge fan and customer of their products from the very first day. My first purchases from Altenew included the Painted Flowers, Vintage Roses, and Super Script sets, which I still use in my current projects to this very day! I’ll never let go of them.
Fast forward a little more than 4 years brings us to today’s celebration of the growth, the success, and so many relationships built around Altenew. In honor of this event, I’ve created a bright and happy floral card to represent the brightness and positive vibe of this community. Altenew, you’ve made my crafty world brighter!
The floral set I chose to work with is called Life is Awesome and it is a floral layered stamp set. I love this set so, so much! And with my Altenew dye ink collection, I stamped these images with my stamping platform and die cut them out with the coordinating dies.
For the reds, I used the Tea Party collection, which includes the colors Pink Pearl, Coral Bliss, Heartbeat, and Vineyard Berry. For the blues, I used the Deep Sea Blues collection, which includes the colors Sea Breeze, Turqouise, Tide Blue, and Starlight. My yellow flowers were stamped with the Summer Afternoon collection, which includes Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee, and Paperbag. And lastly, I stamped the greens using Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen.
I die cut an oval frame out of a piece of A2 sized white card stock to arrange my flowers around. Behind the window, I blended a background with Broken China and Tumbled Glass distress oxide inks, and then heat embossed my sentiment in the center in white. This sentiment is from the Hello Sunshine stamp set.
To complete the card, I added a little glow to the border by blending the edge with the Warm Sunshine dye ink. Then I layered it on over craft foam, and added the flowers with liquid adhesive and foam squares.
