Altenew July Release Blog Hop


***I have two posts to share with you today! If you're looking for my Paperbabe Stamps blog hop post, please click here. Thanks!***
Hey! 

I'm here today sharing the new Altenew July release with a good ol' fashioned blog hop! You should have arrived here from Evelyn Yusuf, but if you haven't then be sure to start out at the Altenew blog. :)

I really was spoilt for choice with what to play from the new release for this blog hop. So many lovely stamp sets to choose from! My Design Team parcel arrived in the nick of time so I couldn't spend too much time deliberating, but I'm a sucker for leaves so I knew that I'd have to ink up the Freeform Greenery stamp set. :)

Proud of your Strength

The background was stamped in no time now I've succumbed to the magic of the mini MISTI. I was able to stamp a few images at once and then stamp the smaller ones in between them to fill the spaces. Easy peasy!

Proud of your strength close up

The sentiment is from the new Bamboo Rose stamp set which contains many uplifting and encouraging sentiments in a beautiful font. I felt that the brush script nature of the font complemented the hand-drawn look of the Freeform Greenery leaves perfectly. :)

On closer inspection, you'll see a strip of Washi tape down the right side of this card. That's part of the new July release too! Wonderful Washi tape! Yay! :D

As always, there are prizes to be won along the blog hop. Altenew are giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Simply leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Friday August 5th 11:59pm EST and the winners will be announced the following day.

I'm also offering a $30 Altenew gift certificate on my blog post, so be sure to leave a comment on this post by Friday 5th August 11.59 EST and I'll announce the lucky winner next day.

Well, it's time to hop along and next on your blog hopping adventure is the fabulous Aga!

Happy hopping and have a wonderful weekend!
