Hello friends! I am so excited to be joining in a very special blog hop today! Altenew is hosting a Celebrating Parents Card Drive to send cards to the elderly that live in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they're not forgotten. Please check out Altenew's Celebrating Parents Card Drive blog post for the details on how you can join in this wonderful card drive!
You should have arrived here from the blog of Arjita Sepaha Singh. If you need to start at the beginning, please head over to the Altenew Card Blog. I have the entire hop list at the end along with all of the Giveaway information.
Altenew has chosen a few of their beautiful products that are great for your Mother's Day and Father's Day cards (and other year-round projects)! From 3/6/2021 to 5/31/2021, Altenew is so very generously donating $1 for every order of the following stamp sets to the Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need. This is a wonderful time to pick up one (or more) of these awesome sets.
I had so much fun ink smooshing onto watercolor paper to use for my die cutting with the beautiful Craft-A-Flower: Antique Rose Layering Die set! I used Altenew's watercolor paper to smoosh my inks and love how it turned out! I used all Distress Inks in these colors: Rustic Wilderness, Mowed Lawn, Twisted Citron, and Wilted Violet. I die cut the Antique Rose flower and leaves and added them to my background panel.
I added some clear sparkle pen to the next-to-the-top layer, but it sure doesn't show up very well in my photos! I really did try, so I'm sorry it looks less than sparkly, but it is in real life!!
Thank you for stopping by and I hope you've been inspired to join in this wonderfully kind Card Drive!
Your next stop on the hop is the awesome Cheryl Espie!
$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this Card Drive blog hop, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners!
