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.
