Altenew April 2022 Gardens Around the World Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)


Hi there!

Welcome to ALTENEW's APRIL 2022 GARDENS AROUND THE WORLD BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY. You are arriving from Natasha Davies' blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom  of this page for your convenience.

Today's Altenew release is a beautiful one.   Filled with gorgeous designs, delicate details, and as always just perfect for all sorts of paper crafting projects.  Let me show you what I have created with some of these products..

Probably one of my favorite sets  of the year, the new MEADOW REFLECTIONS Stamp/Die bundle is filled with beautiful floral and butterfly silhouettes.  I took advantage of the design to create an ink blended background, then stamp the stamp silhouette with Obsidian ink.

I am using the MEADOW REFLECTIONS stamp/die set to create the embossed butterflies that serve as embellishments in the page.  In addition, I am using  the new LEAF CANOPY add on stamp  set to help me build the title for this page!

The new CASTLE GARDEN Stamp/die bundle is another favorite set in this release.  I used the stamp set to heat embossed the image on watercolor paper, and used the Altenew Artist watercolor palette to detail all the images.

Another reason for loving the new CASTLE GARDEN stamp set  is the sentiment strips in the set.  They are so versatile that can easily work as a title for  my page......

I used the large image of the MIDSUMMER BOUQUET stamp setto create this clean and simple card background. I used Jet Black  ink to stamped the image at the edges of the card panel. 

I am adding a sentiment from the Botanical Bookmark stamp/die set to complete my card panel, Lastly.  I am using one of the Alcohol Ink background papers to frame the card panel.

For my last project, I am combining  the new MORNING FLOWERS stamp set with the small  leaf cluster from the new LEAF CANOPY stamp and die set.  I just love how the page came together so effortlessly.

I just love how these all the projects came together.  Remember to stop by the Altenew shop to check all the new releases, and take advantage of this week' offer
