Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Hi there! Today I am joining with Altenew for the Celebrating Parents Card Drive blog hop! If you are following the hop then you should have come from Kelly Griglione, or you can return back to Altenew Card Blog. Find out more about the card drive at Celebrating Parents Card Drive blog post.



I have created a card using the beautiful Flower Garden stamp set from Altenew. First I stamped the images using some black ink on Neenah 80 lb. cardstock and loosely cut them out.


Blending from the middle of the flowers, then working outward, I used Altenew blending brushes with Crisp Dye Inks. First, with Warm Sunshine, then Pink Pearl, and lastly blending in a little Heart Beat. For the leaves, I used Sweet leaf Crisp Dye Ink. The Altenew Blending Brushes are incredible and make the blending a breeze.


I fussy cut out the flowers and leaves and set them aside. I used some of the same inks mixed with a little water and added splatters on another piece of Neenah cardstock cut at 3 1/4" by 8 1/4".


I cut the Altenew Twigtastic die shape from Neenah cardstock and adhered that to the splattered background. Then I stamped a sentiment from Altenew Incredible stamp set with Jet Black Crisp Dye Ink.



I adhered the flowers and leaves to the card panel. Finally I adhered the panel to a coordinating card base and used a little Wink of Stella pen to add some glitter to the center of the flowers.

 I am very lucky to have wonderful parents who support me and our family. Due to COVID, our visits have been very limited this past year. I am glad we can celebrate our parents through this blog hop.

    3. Your card is very pretty. Love your colors. I have the Twigtastic die and can say it's quite versatile, most recently for use as Easter grass.

    4. Isn't this a great cause for a card drive? So many bloggers have been saying they have not seen their parents because of covid-19. I imagine there are lot more people in the same situation. Lets all make sure to help them feel a little less lonely until their families can hug them again.
