Altenew December 2018 Stamp & Die Release Blog Hop (+ Giveaways)

Hello, friends! I’m part of the Altenew Release Blog Hop today! I created a slim card with some ink blending and floral arrangements. You can find all the details for new products and giveaways below.

You should have arrived from Vicky’s blog and the next stop on the hop is Olga. If you lose your place or need more information, you can begin on the Altenew Card Blog.


Affiliate links may be used in this post. You can find the lists of my favorite supplies here.

I used Flower Vine as the focus of my card. I trimmed down white cardstock and folded to 4.25″ x 7.5″.

Separately, I stamped the images from Flower Vine several times with black ink on watercolor paper and colored with watercolor brush markers.

I die-cut them with the coordinating Flower Vine dies. For the base, I ink-blended Fossilized Amber and added white paint splatters.

I mounted the images with foam tape and cut off any excess on the sides. I stamped the sentiment in black ink.

All products are linked below.
