Hi and welcome to Day 2 of the Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop! Pretty Pink Posh is a proud sponsor of this event! We’re celebrating our love of crafting and how it’s drawn us closer together. Crafty friends are the BEST!!! If you’re hopping along you should have reached us through Sandra Dietrich’s blog. If you’d like to start from the beginning you can get all the details and start here at Altenew’s Scrapbook Blog!
I love to give flowers to friends and family.. lots of times they are from my garden, and more often they are on cards that I send so they know I’m thinking of them. My crafty friends are like family, they are so dear to my heart. We have the same things in common – we always want to make each other smile.
Altenew is my favorite place for flowers! They’re well known for their multi stamp floral images, but more recently they have been releasing innovative stackable dies like these Fantasy Floral 3-d dies. The flowers are three separate dies that you cut from colored paper and stack. They look great light to dark or dark to light. Flowers on my design today are arranged both ways.
The Altenew Crafty Friends stamp set is a must have for cards for your crafty friends. The sentiments are a perfect way to celebrate your mutual love of friendship and crafting!
The perfect background for these gorgeous floral blooms is an ombre zig zag border from the Pretty Pink Posh Stacked Edges 1 die set. The individual strips make a lovely accent when a single strip is added, but when you cut several and stack them together the result is breath taking. The stitched detail adds a crisp, rich detail to your design that looks expensive but is so easy to achieve.
My second card features the Altenew Floral Fantasy stamp set. It’s got two gorgeous multi stamped roses and assorted greenery. The flowers look amazing in any of the Altenew Die Ink colors that come in several shades and are designed to be layered.
The background was created with the Pretty Pink Posh Stacked Edges 1 die set. This set is a real value because the set includes three dies that you can use individually or to create three background patterns.
Pink and yellow is my favorite floral combination. I stamped the leaves in different shades of greens to give a more natural look.
This sentiment is also from the Altenew Crafty Friends stamp set. I know we can all relate to this sentiment!
A few Pretty Pink Posh Clear Droplets give the flowers a fresh picked look.
