Altenew May 2016 Blog Hop!

Hey!

Wa-hooooo for Friday! I'm here today as part of the wonderful Altenew May 2016 blog hop to celebrate the new release of an amazing 16 stamp sets and 10 die sets! You should have arrived here from the talented, Aga. If you haven't then be sure to start out on the blog hop at Altenew HQ!

I've whipped up two cards to celebrate the release using four new stamp sets. If you're a regular here then you'll know that I love to combine stamp sets to make the most of them. :)

First up is a card featuring the new Painted Rose and Calligraphy Alpha stamp sets:

Aimes Painted Rose and Calligraphy Alpha signature

I'm a huge fan of the layered stamp sets and the brush style of this set will have you stamping on-trend watercolour-style projects with ease! I originally sat down to play with the stunning rose from this set, but I sat playing with the leaves and before I knew it, I'd created a background.

Aimes Painted Rose and Calligraphy Alpha close up signature

So all this card needed was a sentiment and I turned to the Calligraphy Alpha stamp set which I absolutely LOVE! Trendy customised calligraphy sentiments are now at my inky disposal! :)

My next card features the fun stamp sets, Say Cheese and From the Desk of; two more stamp sets that have quickly become firm favourites of mine:

Aimes Say Cheese and From The Desk Of signature

I adore the mix-and-match elements of the Say Cheese stamp set. The hardest part about this card was choosing which style camera to stamp! I couldn't resist those polka dots.

Aimes Say Cheese and From The Desk Of close up signature

I then heat-embossed an arrow and hearts as trendy accents to the design. I  love the sketchy nature of them from the From the Desk of stamp set.

PRIZES! 
Right, there's some serious blog hopping to be done today and prizes along the way. To celebrate the release Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Thursday May 19th 11:59pm EST for a chance to win. Winners will be announced on Friday May 20th.

I'm also joining in the celebrations and have a $30 gift certificate up for grabs! Simply leave a comment on this post by Wednesday May 18th 11:59pm EST to be in with a chance of winning it and I'll randomly select and announce a winner on Thursday May 19th. :)

That's all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by! Next on your hopping adventure is Anna Kossakovskaya. Happy hopping!

Hi Lovely to meet you via the blog hop. I just love your background paper you have made with the leaves, and then to add that peg just sets the picture off just right.

Yes the Say Cheese stamp is now a must for me - can see so many uses for it.
