Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway + VIDEO

Hello and Welcome to the Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop! I'm so excited to join this hop!!! I hope you came from Sandra Dietrich but if not, please check the full blog hop list in the bottom of this post.



I made five cards using new amazing dies for today’s Blog Hop.



 My first card with gorgeous Rose Flurries 3D die set, I colored the roses with Gansai Tambi watercolors and die cut the leaves out of mint cardstock and created a wreath.



A detailed process of this card you can watch here on this post or in HD at my YouTube channel. 






Thank you so much for watching!





My second card is my favorite. I blended some Cracked Pistachio and Shaded Lilac distress inks on a white piece of paper and cover it up using the negative part of the Spring Shower panel. For my sentiment I glued together two Thinking of you, with offset to make gold shadow effect. 





I did so many photos, because this card is my favorite!!! I love this effect, It's very bright and festive!  








 For my third card I used Spring Shower die as a background stamp. I inked up the die with Sand Dunes inks and ran this through my die cut machine with white piece of paper and embossing mat.This technique pressing die and ink into the paper, giving the interested look. 





Then I die cut the branches and oval panel from Create a Wreath set out of platinum glitter cardstock and adhered all together with big You ink blended sentiment from Bold Alphabet die set.






For this card I combined the ink blended panel with Brush Strokes and Create a Wreathe die sets. I die cut the branches out of white and glitter cardstock and glued them onto the brush strokes panel.




For my last card I used Spring Shower Cover die again. This die works perfectly with inlaid diecutting technique. 
I've added some flowers and leaves on top of my panel, to make my card more interested look. I also added a sentiment Hello out of gold mirror cardstock.

ALTENEW A YEAR IN REVIEW BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY



Hello everyone! Today I’m very excited to be joining to Altenew's A Year in Review Blog Hop. Altenew such a great company with amazing talented designers.

This year was very productive for me. If you don't know, I'm started making cards in a middle of 2016. And I'm so excited to get inspiration from Altenew products, because I love them so much! As you know, I love to make floral cards, and use colored pencils, alcohol markers or watercolors for coloring. 


This year I was lucky to be a guest designer for Altenew in March, it was a great honor for me!!!
Here are three cards I made as a guest designer for them.
