Altenew’s 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop + Giveaway!



Hi Everyone!

Welcome to the Altenew 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop! If this is the first post you are reading and you would like to hop along you can start here on the Altenew Blog!

Altenew was kind enough to send us some stamps to play with and invited us to participate in the blog hop! There are some awesome prizes to be won and we also have a $30 gift certificate to give away to spend in our shop! Be sure to leave  comments on all 4 days of the blog hop to get a chance to win some amazing prizes!

I got to play with two Altenew Stamps: Basic Borders and Thinking Of You. I loved them so much I made two projects with them! 


I created this very easy background using the entire stamp set as a background and inked it up with our WOW! Embossing Powder Inkpad (UK Shop, US Shop) and using a variety of our Primary Embossing Powders (UK Shop, US Shop) to create this rainbow effect! <3 The Primary Embossing Powders go really well with each other and I simplay love how glossy they are. 



To finish off the card panel, I stamped a sentiment on a banner from the Thinking of You stamp set which has some lovely and very thoughtful phrases. 


I couldn't resist so I created a small 6x8 scrapbook layout to go in my Project Life Album. This Basic Background stamp set is so much fun and you can get tons of different effects and designs from just one set!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope that you are having a great day! Your next stop in the hop is Yoonsun Hur!
