Altenew February 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway + VIDEO


Hello and Welcome to the Altenew February 2018 Release Blog Hop! I'm so excited to join this hop!!! I hope you came from amazing Svitlana Shayevich but if not, please check the full blog hop list in the bottom of this post.
I made four cards using new amazing stamp sets for today’s Blog Hop.




For my first card, I used gorgeous roses from Forewer and Always stamp set. I stamped the images with clear embossing ink on watercolor paper and heat embossed it with Altenew Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder and colored the images with Gansai Tambi watercolors.






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 with beautiful Birds of a Feather stamp set. I wanted to make the bird more realistic, so I stamped the layers of the bird and little branch with Altenew inks, and then colored with my polychromos pencils.



I especially like how realistic this branch looks. For the background, I blended  Altenew Rocky Shore inks on a white piece of paper and splattered with water.






My third card with beautiful Wings of Hope stamp set. I love the tender images from the set, and especially I love the sentiments. 

I decided to make a patterned background with this stamps. First, I stamped the flowers and the leaves on a white piece of paper using Altenew Blush, Lavender Fields and Morning Frost inks.


And then, I stamped some images with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Altenew Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder.






My last card is absolutely clean and simple. I stamped stitched layers from Sewn with Love stamp set using Altenew Red Cosmos set of inks and green inks on a white piece of paper. After that, I've added some lines using bone folder and scoring board to make my card more interested look.
