Altenew | August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello there and welcome to the Altenew Bold & Beautiful Collection Release Blog Hop! The new collection features lots of lovely stamps, dies, stencils and embossing folders. For my card today, I am using the beautiful Dazzling Dahlia set. More information on the blog hop below. 

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

I started off my card my card by stamping the flower, leaves and hummingbird from the Altenew Dazzling Dahlia Stamp Set on to white cardstock with Altenew Permanent Black Ink. I then placed the Altenew Dazzling Dahlia Simple Coloring Stencils on top. Using Small and Mini Ink Blending Brushes, I blended on Hydrangea (Altenew Enchanted Garden Crisp Dye Inks) Ink for the flower.

I used Sunray Ink (Altenew Golden Sunset Crisp Dye Inks) for the centre. I then used Firefly and Grass Field (Altenew Green Valley Crisp Dye Inks) for the leaves and Dew Drops, Aqualicious (Altenew Sweet Dreams Crisp Dye Inks) and Hydrangea for the hummingbird. They were all then die cut using the Altenew Dazzling Dahlia Die Set

I added ink blending to the top left hand corner of a panel of white cardstock using an Altenew Large Ink Blending Tool and Caribbean Sky (Altenew Glacier Caves Crisp Dye Inks) Ink. It was adhered to an A2 white card base with thin foam tape, followed by the images. The sentiment was stamped on to black cardstock with Altenew Embossing Ink. Altenew Pure Crisp Embossing Powder was applied and heat set. It was cut in to a strip and added to the card. To finish off, I added a few iridescent jewels.
