Welcome to the Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway 2022! I’m so excited to be a part of this hop. You should have arrived here from Amy’s blog. If you missed the start of the hop you can start at the Altenew Card Blog. The goal of today’s hop is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten. We encourage you to check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in cards.
My card today is featuring the Altenew Here For You stamp set. This is one of my favorite stamp sets from Altenew. The large flower makes so a pretty card. I used Altenew Watercolor Paper and Altenew Watercolor Brushes for my card today. I placed the color of the brush onto my glass mat and used my Altenew Artists Watercolor brushes to paint the image. Happy bright watercolors really make this flower just bloom on a card.
Wanting to have some texture to my card, after I watercolored the image, I ran the panel through my die cutting machine with the Altenew Enchanting Vines 3D embossing folder. What a great way to add texture within my artwork.
Adding in a touch of black to ground my piece, I heat embossed one of the sentiments from the Hero For You stamp set in Altenew White Embossing Powder on black card stock. Remember, if a stamp is all on one line, you can easily cut it about after you heat emboss to scatter your sentiment across your card.
We have chosen a few Altenew products that are great for your Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards (and other year-round projects)!
Altenew will donate $1 with every order of the above stamp sets from 3/6/2021 until 5/31/2021 to the Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need. We have created a special Parent’s Card Drive Collection.
Now let’s chat about giveaways. To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Make sure to leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 03/30/2022 for a chance to win. Wow that’s $200 in total prizes up for grab.
Next up on the hop is Ann. I hope you enjoy your time on the Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog hop. I’ve also included the entire blog hop just in case you need it. Have a great day everyone.

Erica Kennedy says
I was just wonder did you color the flower before or after the embossing. Beautiful coloring. The embossing folder gives a lot of texture and movement to the card. Can’t go wrong with water coloring and embossing a great combo. I must try.
Dana Joy says
Hi Erica. Yes I watercolored it first and made sure it was dry before I used the embossing folder.
