Altenew | Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop (+ Giveway)

Hello, crafty friends! I am honored to be a part of Altenew’s Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop today! You should have arrived from Vicky Papaioannou’s blog!

Altenew is hosting a Celebrating Parents Card Drive, where they collect handmade cards to distribute to seniors. More information can be found on their blog post here. The goal is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. Not only that, 20% of the profits earned from the following sets (Best Dad, Painted Rose, Penned Rose, Extra Special, and Best Mom) by June 17, 2018 will be donated to Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need. In addition to that, you can save 35% Off on the Best Dad Stamp & Die Bundle from 4/20/2018 until 4/23/2018 at 11:59 pm EDT. No coupon code needed to enjoy this deal.


I have four projects for you today! I made one father’s day and three mother’s day cards. For my first card, I used Best Dad Stamp & Die Bundle.


I stamped all the images from Best Dad stamp set onto white cardstock and colored them with Copic Markers. I die-cut them and arranged them over a white card base with foam tape for dimension. I added some white and black paint splatters. I stamped the sentiment with VersaMark on black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder, trimmed it down and mounted it over the images.




For my next card, I used Mega Succulent.


I stamped the large image on watercolor cardstock with VersaMark and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder. I watercolored it and then added the heat-embossed sentiments from Best Mom.



For my third card, I used Doodled Dots Cover Die and Happy Bloom.


I die-cut the Doodled Dots Cover Die with white cardstock and removed some of the small dots. I mounted it over my card base with foam tape for dimension. I stamped the image from Happy Bloom on watercolor cardstock and watercolored it. I fussy cut it and mounted it on the bottom corner. The sentiments are from Penned Rose.



For my last card, I wanted to do another dimensional card since they have been so fun to create lately!


I stamped the flower and leaves from Happy Bloom on watercolor cardstock and watercolored them. I fussy cut them and added black and white paint splatters. I fussy cut them and arranged them over my white card base with foam tape. I finished it off with embossed sentiments from Enchanted Iris.




I hope these cards inspired you to create some cards for the Card Drive!
