Altenew March 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello Everyone, welcome to Altenew March 2018 Blog Hop! We have lots of inspiration for you. You should have arrived from Terhi Koskinen's blog. If this is your first stop just click HERE to start at Altenew blog.

You will enjoy this release lots of stitching die if you love stitching, lots of other cool stamps and dies as well. For this first card I use the new Hope Stamp SetHope Die Set, and Mandala Die Set

First, I stamped the sentiment on a brown cardstock and white heat embossed the words, then die-cut the hope on a brown cardstock.

Next, I stamped the flower image using Hope Stamp Set and die-cut it with Hope Die Set.  I also distressed the white card base with peacock feather Distress Ink then I glued the Mandala Mandala Die Set on top of the distressed card base.

For this second card I used the new Cross Stitch Canvas DieSweet Rose Bouquet Stamp Set and thank you sentiment from Many Thanks Stamp set.
 This cross stitch die is super cool. So instead of creating a crossed stitched I simply made some embroidered on my card using the stamped image.
 Next, I spattered some gold watercolor ink and distressed the cardstock for added interest.

For my last and final card I used the Pegboard Canvas Cover Die
 I simply stitched the corners and added the cotton image from Cotton Comfort stamp set.
 Here's the close-up the card.

I hope you enjoyed!

PPP - March 2018 Release Blog Hop!

Hello Everyone, welcome to the second day of Pretty Pink Posh March 2018 Release Blog Hop!If you are joining the hope you should have arrived at Terri Anderson's Blog.

 To begin, I first distressed my card base with Distress Ink in Tattered Rose. I also die-cut the Happy Easter Shaker die few times and stacked and glue them on top of the other. I also stamped the sentiment "happy spring" from the new Bunny Friends stamp set.
 Next,  I stamped and die-cut my flower images using Cherry Blossom stamp set and  Cherry Blossom Coordinating dies. Then colored them with Copic Markers.
Next, I adhered the flowers and leaves with foam taped for dimension. I added the Pink Blush Jewels, and Buttercream Jewels to finish off the card.
 Just another final look of the finish card.

I hoped you enjoyed! Thank you for stopping by!
