Altenew April 2018 Stamp/Die Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Eek! I am super excited to be apart of the Altenew April 2018 Release and Blog Hop! This release is full of exciting stamps and dies so you’re in for a good time!

You’ve probably come to me from Enza Gudor but if not, I encourage you to start at the beginning of the Blog Hop here. There are great prizes along the way so be sure to check everyone out and leave a comment! At the  bottom of this page is the chance to win a $30 giftcard!

First, I created this card using the Dream Big Stamp and Die Bundle. I absolutely love this butterfly. This is a layered stamp set so you can create the butterfly in any color combination you like. Too cute! I used Orange Cream from the Warm and Cozy set and Warm Sunshine from the Summer Afternoon set to make this butterfly look like a monarch.

Here’s a look at what the two stamp sets look like:

For the next card, I used Strength Blooms Stamp and Die Set and the Mega Hello Die. I just love this Hello die. It fits perfectly on an A2 card! The ink sets I used are Sea Shore Ink Set and the Sweet Dreams Ink Set.
