Altenew Mixed Media Inks Blog Hop+ Giveaway

Hello friends!
I am excited to be part of the Altenew Mixed Media Ink Blog Hop with you.
We are celebrating the latest Mixed Media Ink with a blog hop!

If you arrive from the blog of  Jenny Colacicco , you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration.
All details about this hop can be found in Altenew Card Blog.

To change things up a bit, I decided to create square-ish card.
The smaller card size doesn't mean it has less impact.

In fact, you have to plan each inch carefully to achieve the maximum visual result.

By following the guide, I stamped the images (from Amazing Things Stamp Set) in Mixed Media Ink. For the Checkerboard strip, I love how the ink color mixed and blended so easily.

The Framed Thanks Die is so intricate that I often split it up to use just the sentiment. You should consider this die if you love the delicate frame also.

Here are TWO more cards (Winter Florals by Altenew/Scrapbook.com) that I made.
They were stamped in Mixed Media Ink bundle.

The square card may be smaller but makes up for it's size with the large flower and the creative greeting. I really like how you incorporated the checked pattern with the rose and the gold thanks.

Virginia, the first card is just gorgeous. I love the ombre use of color in the checkerboard, and layering that beautiful flower off-center made the card look more prominent, and adding the gold thank you was classy. The other two Christmas cards are lovely.
