Hello and welcome to Altenew 6th Anniversary Blog Hop Day2!

Galina Filippenkos blog, you’re right on track. If you want to start from the beginning of the blog hop, please head on over to Altenew Card Blog!

Huge Congratulations to Altenew! Thank you so much for being so awesome !!! It’s so exciting to be part of this amazing blog hop this year again, celebrating Altenew’s 6th Anniversary with so many talented fellow crafters!!!  I know, It’s hard to celebrate without thinking about the current situation all over the world. But I think it is also important that we go forwards and do the work we have been doing in these challenging times. I hope this blog hop brings you a little cheer 🙂 ! 


Today I have two cards to share with you. This year I chose watercolor brush markers and watercolor 36 pan set by Altenew as my coloring medium 🙂 !

My first card is featuring Everlasting Happiness set.  Whenever I see these pretty floral wreath images, it reminds me of some airy and light colors. So I watercolored the images using some soft pastel colors of the watercolor 36 pan set.

I started off by white heat embossing the large and small wreath from the Everlasting Happiness set overlapping each other. I colored the inner area of the wreath in soft pink, yellow, green and light blue and the flowers in soft pink, violet and yellow.

After the panel was dry I added some clear Pico embellisher on the tiny yellow flowers and yellow Stickles on the center of the flowers. The sentiment from the same stamp set was heat embossed in silver on the colored panel.

I trimmed down the front panel and foam mounted it on a light gray cardbase and finished off the card by scattering some clear iridescent sequins.

For the second card I used the gorgeous poppy of the Wonderland stamp set. To add some texture to my CAS design,  I’ve created a background using One Day at a Time stamp set.

I gold heat embossed the large poppy from Wonderland stamp set and colored it in Purple Wine, Ruby Red, Rouge and Lagoon watercolor brush markers. I let it dry and fussy cut it.

I picked two marble patterns from the One Day at a Time stamp set and heat embossed them in Verdigris EP next to each other on a teal cardstock. I then mounted it on a white cardbase. I cut a A2 sized white woodgrain textured cardstock into two pieces as shown in the picture. I stamped the sentiment from Wonderland stamp set on the larger piece in Jet black ink and foam mounted both panels onto the card.

 The poppy was then added to the card. I was thinking about adding some embellishment first but decided not to do.
