Altenew March blog hop!

Adventure begins
Hey!

Happy Monday! Today I'm celebrating the March 2016 release from Altenew by taking part in a fabulous blog hop with the rest of the amazing Design Team. You should have hopped across here from my talented friend, Aga! If you haven't, then be sure to start out at Altenew HQ. :)

This is one serious mega release from Altenew. In fact, there's so much that it's much easier if I simply list everything!:
  • Two 4x7" stamp sets 
  • Nine mini stamp sets 
  • Twenty-one die sets 
  • Six new papers/cardstock
  • New acrylic blocks 
  • Twelve new ink colours 
Phew! That's a lot, right? After you've followed the blog hop, be sure to check out the full release here. :)

I'm struggling to create after slipping on some ice and hurting my arm, but these new goodies made me determined and inspired to create a fun shaker card using the new Ori Kami die set. It's no secret that Ori Kami is one of my favourite Altenew stamp sets, so I'm super-happy to see that we now have the co-ordinating die set available too!
adventure begins close up
The sentiment is from the Travelling mini set and I think it makes a nice alternative to a 'Bon voyage' sentiment, or for a card to send to someone who is embarking on a new chapter of their life or, as I like to see it, an adventure. :)

Right, there's vital hopping to be done and prizes to be won too! Altenew are giving away THREE $50 gift certificates – simply comment on their blog post by Friday 18th March 2016 to be in with a chance of winning one. I'm also giving away a $30 gift certificate to one randomly selected peep who comments on my blog post here by Friday, so let me know what you think of this release; it could just land you with some pennies to kick-start your shopping list!

Next on your hopping adventure is the amazingly talented, Yana! Thanks so much for stopping by today!
