Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway


Hi there!
Welcome to the ALTENEW 6th ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP Day 3 + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from the always inspiring Ellen Hutson Blog , a list of the all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today we are celebrating Altenew's 6th Anniversary!!  It is amazing to see all the products, projects and inspiration they have created in the past years, but it is the team behind the business that makes this company so inspiring and a joy to work for.  So, today, i combined a few of their amazing products to celebrate them:



I discovered Altenew a few years ago when searching for a flower stamp, so it is only fitting that i use one of the newer flower stamps - Poppy Garden - to create this page.



I started with a bit of mixed media on the background.    For this i combined a bit of  Lava Rock Watercolor Brush Marker refill and Watercolor Essential 12 pan set on a piece of double cardstock to create this watercolor rhomboid shape.



I used Embossing ink and Platinum Embossing powder to heat embossed all the images of the Poppy Garden stamp set onto heavy cardstock.  Once the images were embossed, i pulled my Artist Watercolor 24 Pan set to detail each of the blooms.



Once the images dried i used the coordinating dies to cut all the flowers.  At the same time, i backed all the pictures with papers from the Verdant Walk paper pack.




I attached everything in place with a bit of dimensional adhesive and then added a few stamped sentiments ( Tabbed Stamp set) around the photos.   To add extra movement to the page, i used the Mix and Match Mariposa Die to cut a few vellum images, layered them together, and then glued them around the page.



I used the  alphas from the Live Your Dream collection and the Sophisticated Wreath stamp set to create the title for this page.   A few drops of Cosmic Berry Metallic Ink Spray complete the layout.



I love how easy this came together mixing and matching products from Altenew.  Just love the versatility of the products and all you are able to achieve with them.

To celebrate their Anniversary, Altenew is having a special promotion that will help you continue crafting through this difficult time.
