Altenew Eclectic Vibes Release Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to the Altenew Eclectic Vibes Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. If you made your way here from my friend Justine Hovey’s blog, you’re right on track. To start at the beginning visit the Altenew Card Blog.

Altenew Gardenia Duo

Gardenia Duo & Just A Number

Gardenias are one of my favorite flowers and the Gardenia Duo Stamp Bundle captures them perfectly. I kept my first card simple with a touch of light blue in the center to perk up the traditionally white blooms.

Altenew Just A Number Stamp Set includes fabulous birthday sentiments including this quote from John Lennon. I love this quote and felt it called for some sheet music for the background.

Gardenia Duo & Thank You For Being My Friend

This time I opted for cheery yellow blooms and kept the white space in the background. However, I felt the background needed some hand-drawn black lines to coordinate with the black sentiment die-cut.

For softer color, try ink blending with the Gardenia Duo Mask Stencil vs. stamping with the solid stamp. The Thank You For Being My Friend Die Set can be used with or as seen here without the sub-sentiment.
