Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway 2022

Hey Crafty People

Welcome to my stop on this Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop & Giveaway! I’m sharing a few different projects here today. I’ll also have the information about the Card Drive itself, this giveaway and the next stop on the hop throughout this post! (The supplies I’ve used are linked below if you are struck with inspiration and want to see exactly what I used!)

This hop is really quite exciting for me because it was the Celebrating Parents blog hop in 2021 that was my first time Guesting with Altenew. This last year has been nothing short of INCREDIBLE!!! So I want to say a big thank you to Altenew for all of the opportunities that I’ve been given over the last 12 months. <3

You can start today’s hop from the Altenew blog, if you want to be sure not to miss anybody.

If you’d like some more information about the Annual Card Drive then please be sure to check out Altenew’s dedicated page for this year’s event.


Never Too Much Sparkle

I’m firmly in the camp where no amount of glitz & sparkle is every too much, so I just had to use the gorgeous glitter cardstock gradient packs to create some fully sparkly layered blooms!!!

Top tip! Double sided adhesive sheets added BEFORE die cutting is your best friend in these kinds of situations. It makes it so easy & quick to add each layer on top of the last, and Altenew’s has some fabulous staying power too!!!

For a subtle background, I stamped the Woven Lines stamp in a light grey colour ink onto an a2 panel of Neenah 80lb as a neutral background for all of that bling! My sentiment is die cut using the Mighty Alphabet die set.


GIVEAWAY!!!

$200 in total prizes!

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners!

Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 03/30/2022 for a chance to win.

Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 04/01/2022.


card 2

I chose some of my favourite colours from Altenew’s range of inks for this card and kept the colour scheme really quite pastel & tame for me! First, I die cut the floral image and then die cut the word to pop it up on some extra layers for that added dimension.

The tone-on-tone background is a die cut piece from the mix ‘n’ match frames die set. I love adding white die cuts on top of white panels for some subtle interest.


Giving Back!

We have chosen a few Altenew products that are great for your Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards (and other year-round projects)!

Altenew will donate $1 with every order of the above stamp sets from 3/6/2021 until 5/31/2021 to the Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need.

They have created a special Parent’s Card Drive Collection. Check it out.


Exploring Mixed Media ink

If you’ve ever wondered just what you can do with the Mixed Media Inks from Altenew, then I’m sharing several ideas today! (Including using them to decorate fabric!)

One of the awesome things about these inks is that they can layer on top of other stamped images, which you won’t get with a dye ink.


Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop

Next up on the hop is the lovely Sande Woodson. I’m sure she has some fabulous projects to share with us all!

You should have arrived here from the wonderful Nandini Karmarkar. Don’t forget you can start the hop over at Altenew’s card blog.


Thank you so much for stopping by today, if you’re new here then I hope that you will consider subscribing.

Have a lovely, happy, safe, WONDERFUL week.

Stay Crafty!
Byeee!

Please be aware:

As part of my Design Team and Guest Design work I do often receive free products to use, but I only ever recommend products that I genuinely love.

Also, I know how incredibly lucky I am to have these opportunities, but you don’t always NEED the newest products or the ‘full set’.
So please don’t feel that you need everything.
I like to show a variety of brands and products; this way; this way there will be something for everybody to enjoy.
