Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hello and welcome to the September Craft Your Life project Kit blog hop and giveaway, you should have arrived here from Therese Calvird if not you can go back to the start of the hop by visiting the Altenew Card Blog.

Craft Your Life Project Kit: Hello Beautiful

There is nothing like a bouquet of flowers to bring you joy and contentment! Enjoy our Craft Your Life Project Kit, an exciting monthly package that is sure to get the creative juices flowing! Featuring a 6x8 stamp set, coordinating die set, as well as a stencil and embossing folder to fit the theme, this project kit has almost everything you need to start crafting. Just add ink and cardstock, and you'll be good to go! This kit features a gorgeous stamp set with three beautiful floral clusters. The flowers and leaves were drawn with great care, giving special attention to the folds and curves of the petals. The set includes eight messages great for everyday occasions. The kit also features FIVE coloring stencils which will allow you to color the floral clusters in two coloring layers. Furthermore, there is a matching die for each of the floral clusters and an embossing folder featuring an elaborate version of one of the floral clusters from the stamp set. Pair them together for the best results.

I have creates three cards to share with you today so let's take a closer look.

In this first sample I have used the embossing folder and some green card to create the back ground panel. I added one of the floral images and some leaves which were stamped using Fall Harvest, Sugar Plums and Martian Terrain.

The sentiment was stamped on to white card with Obsidian ink and I added a sprinkling of Antique Gold Sequins to finish.

Now how about a slimline card? I stamped the images using the same ink combination as above. I felt that two flowers filled the space better on this slim line design.

The die cut panel in the back ground is cut using the Slim Deco Cover Die cut from the same green card used in the first card, I love making coordinating sets.

My final card uses the only image I haven't used so far, I like how I've used each image for this release..bonus! I created the background for this card using the Mix and Match frame set. This time I added some gold thread along with the sequins to embellish my card.
