Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop

Hi there!

I’m excited to say that the AAA Cards Challenge was invited to join a fun blog hop that Altenew is hosting. A total of 12 challenge blogs are participating and you have the chance to win one of 10 $25 Altenew gift certificates. Full details are on the Altenew blog.

Some of the AAA Cards DT have already joined in with the fun and created some cards using Altenew products – check them out on the AAA Cards blog!

I love Altenew products and have all their ink cubes – they are my go-to whenever I do layered stamping! I also have so many of their floral stamps but as my cardmaking preferences are leaning more towards die-cutting nowadays, I decided to pull out some of my beautiful Altenew dies for my card.

I cut and coloured some foliage from the Branches and Berries die set using my Twinkling H2O paints – can you see that shimmer?! Next I cut the vases from the Mantel Decor – Spring Die Set. You would not believe how I stalked UK retailers waiting for this set! I just love the size of those vases!

I wanted to use the Textured Burlap die to ground my vase cluster but felt that the whole die cut competed with the delicate florals. I toyed with embossing it on the card base but in the end I decided to use part of the die cut to ground the vases. Finally I added a sentiment from the Flower Vine stamp set.

Hope you enjoy the blog hop and can join the fun by sharing your own cards on the Altenew link up!!

Thanks for stopping by!
