Warning: Super-heavy photo post 
🍃🌺🌼major colorful and bright floral creations ahead...
Yay, it's July Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
I am super excited to share 4 fun and colorful projects with you.
If you arrive from the blog of the uber talented Erum Tasneem, you are in the right place!

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog

Please note that all products are either highlighted or listed at the end of this post.

Card #1. Feature products: Pen Sketched Flowers , Graphic BrushstrokesAtenew-PenSketchStamp-GraphicBrushstrokes-Virginia#2

I combined a few colors and made green as the focal point and I think it worked. 
 The flowers were partially colored with Altenew Artist Markers.
Atenew-PenSketchStamp-GraphicBrushstrokes-Virginia#3

I stamped Graphic Brushstrokes onto white card stock and then stamped the sentiment over the green card base. I think it worked nicely since the color perfectly coordinated with the green I used with the leaves.
Atenew-PenSketchStamp-GraphicBrushstrokes-Virginia#1
Noticed I also stamped the Graphic Brushstrokes right in the center?


Atenew-PenSketchStamp-GraphicBrushstrokes-Virginia#4
I also add green splatter all over the background and this truly makes the design artsy....
that certainly echos nicely with the sentiment.

Card #2. Feature products: Mega Greetings 4 Stamp Set Mega Blessed Die

Altenew-MegaBlessedDie-MegaGreetings-Virginia#1

 Basically, this card is all about using inlaid Die-cutting with Pattern paper. 

 Notice that I added an extra step of stamping in between? 
Can you spy the Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink?

Card #3. Feature products: Graphic Brushstrokes, Charming Doodles Die Set

Altenew-GraphicBrushstrokesStamp-CharmingDoodlesDieStencil-Virginia#1

Can you spy the new Graphic Brushstrokes?

I love the Charming Doodles Die and designed that it will be great to feature the die without even using stamps.

Card #4. Feature products: Sophisticated Wreath Stamp & Dine Bundle

Altenew-SophisticatedWreathStampDieBundle-Virginia#1
 
It was so fun and rewarding to stamp and arrange the wreath how you like it.

I popped up a few layers on top to add the dimensions and interest.
