ALTENEW: 8TH ANNIVERSARY BLOG HOP DAY 3 + GIVEAWAY

OVER $2000 IN TOTAL PRIZES (See below for more info)



Welcome!

Happy Anniversary Altenew!

You may have found your way here from Joy Baldwin's blog, or you can find all the info over on the Altenew's blog.

I chose to celebrate with Altenew today so I could share my birthday with them, and with all of you. 




For my project, I began by ink blending down an A2 card base with the Northern Shores Mini ink cubes and a Small Blending Brush then set it aside to dry. 

Meanwhile, I cut one of the leaves from the Leaf Cluster Dies out of a white card panel cut smaller widthwise than the card base. I used Arctic Mountain to color the cut out leaf.



 I added the sentiment from the Woven Stripes Stamp Set and Permanent Black ink. When I saw this set for the first time, I knew I wanted it. On the wall in my craft room, I have the saying "Make Today Amazing," 

I added a thin strip of the Gilded Glitter Cardstock behind the white leaf cutout panel, adhered it all together and added a silver sequin mix to finish the card.




Thank for joining today.
Make Today Amazing!
Your Next stop is Yasmin Diaz.
