Welcome to the Altenew +Pinkfresh Celebrate collab and blog hop! I love a good collab and this one exceeds expectations with delightful and enticing crafty goodies!
Celebrate Scrapbook Collection
There are so many fabulous floral elements in this release. Included in this release are two stamp and die bundles, a 6×6 paper pack, 12×12 paper pack, and ephemera. Click on the image to take a closer look.
All the details to create six handmade cards with the new Altenew + Pinkfresh Celebrate release are in this short cardmaking video tutorial. Watch here or in HD on YouTube. While. you’re there I’d love it if you like, subscribe, and share it with friends!
Slimline vs. A2 Cards
As mentioned, the Celebrate release includes 6×6 and 12×12 paper packs. The images in these paper packs are identical so I thought it would be fun to create slimline cards with the 12×12 paper and A2 cards with the 6×6 paper.
I absolutely adore the slimline cards created with the 12×12 paper due to the large floral images. These cards were made in a matter of minutes by trimming to size and adding simple stamped and ephemera sentiments.
As you can see, I used the same technique here with a different pattern. I added ephemera flowers to the A2 sized card and ephemera sentiment to the slimline card. So so easy!!
Celebrate Us Layer Stamp
Altenew lends its iconic floral layer stamping to the Celebrate Us Stamp & Die Bundle. This beautiful bloom and accompanying leaves are already arranged for you. I so appreciate the efficiency of being able to die-cut the arrangement in one go.
Celebrate Us only requires four colors to create a beautiful layered look. Here I used Altenew Pink Pearl, Coral Berry, Frayed Leaf, and Chammomile Crisp Dye Inks.
In order to ground the image, I used two off-set layers of Altenew Brushed Grid Washi Tape. The sketchy lines of the washi tape pair perfectly with the stamp illustration.
I added a bit of splatter with Altenew Jet Black Ink Spray before popping up the floral images and thankful die-cut. Word dies with shadows are one of my favorite card elements and Celebrate Us includes one!!
Celebrate Today + Coloring
Celebrate Today Stamp Set includes a sketchy outline floral arrangement ideal for all your favorite coloring mediums. My two favorites are watercolor and alcohol markers. What are yours?
Coloring doesn’t have to be difficult if you keep things loose and sketchy. Be sure to watch the video for more instruction. Here I used Altenew Artist Markers in Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Frosty Pink, Coral Berry, Frayed Leaf, and the Colorless Blender.
After simple coloring, I die-cut and popped up the image on a piece of Celebrate 6×6 paper pack. I finished off the card with a stamped sentiment and Nuvo Crystal Drops.
While that’s a wrap on all my yummy goodness, but there’s loads more inspiration on the rest of the hop. Information on the next stop, supplies, and prizes are below!
