Altenew | June 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome to Alenew's June 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop! This month we are doing something a little different and releasing the monthly subscriptions all on one day. 

Releasing today is Build-A-Garden Nature's Magic, Craft-A-Flower Cape Marguerite, Craft Your Life Silk Art Project Kit, Mini Delight Hooray! and Paint-A-Flower Flowering Dogwood. So there is definitely something for everyone! Please see below for more information on the hop. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

My first card uses the Altenew Craft-A-Flower Cape Marguerite Layering Die Set. I started off by die cutting the flower petals, centres and leaves from white cardstock. I then added ink blending to them using Altenew Small Ink Blending Tools. For the petals, I used Rubellite and Razzleberry from Altenew Cherry Blossom Crisp Dye Inks and Chamomile and Sunset from Altenew Golden Sunset Crisp Dye Inks. I also used the later two for the flower centres. 

For the leaves, I used Altenew Green Valley Crisp Dye Inks. They were assembled and adhered using Altenew 2 in 1 Precision Glue Pen and set as aside. I took an A2 white card base and placed the stencil from the Altenew Craft Your Life Garden Rose Project Kit on top. Using another blending tool, I blended on Altenew Permanent Black Ink in to the lines.

The stencil was removed and the flowers and leaves added on top. I took the sentiment from Altenew Sentiment Strips 3 Stamp Set and stamped it on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. To finish off, I added Altenew Essential Black & White Enamel Dots (just the black ones). 

My next card uses the new beautiful Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Silk Art. I first added ink blending to a panel of cardstock using Altenew Enchanted Garden Crisp Dye Inks using an Altenew Large Ink Blending Tool. I then ran the panel through my die cutting machine with the Silk Art 3D Embossing Folder. 

I added white pigment ink to the raised areas, which really makes the embossing pop! The panel was adhered to an A2 white card base with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. The sentiment from the kit stamp set was stamped on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. I applied Altenew Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card with more foam tape.
