Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway + VIDEO






Hello everyone! Today I'm participating in Altenew’s 4th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1

If you came from Laura Bassen you are on the right track, but if not please start at the Altenew blog


VIDEO TUTORIAL

A detailed process of this card you can watch here on this post or in HD at my YouTube channel.



Thank you so much for watching!

In celebration of these past four years, Altenew is hosting a special four-day blog hop! With four days, you know there is going to be so much Altenew inspiration heading your way from many talented designers! There are also prizes up for grabs, and even a shopping discount code. All these details will be listed at the bottom of this post.


Thanks Altenew for inspiring me to make my first card in 2016 with their gorgeous Vintage Roses! It's been a real delight to see how they turn into such a successful crafting company!



To celebrate Altenew's Anniwersary I made a card with beautiful Peony Spray stamp set.



 CARD DETAILS

 I've started by stamping peonies set 3 times onto light grey cardstock using clear inks and white heat embossed.




Next, I colored the peonies with Prismacolor pencils. I love the soft look of this pencils on light grey cardstock. I used four shades of pencils along with a white pencil for highlights. 


 Once my coloring was done, I die cut the images with coordinating die. Next, I heat embossed peonies onto light grey panel with white embossing powder for the background. I foam mounted peonies on my grey panel and cut out the excess.


For the sentiment I used the Hello die from Flower Arrangement die set. 


Sometimes I have some troubles with detailed thin dies. So I decided to show you little die cutting trick in my video tutorial. 


At last I glued my panel onto white card base and finished the card with some sequins and drops.
