Altenew’s 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop + Giveaway

** For SugarPea Designs release please scroll down**




Hi peeps and welcome to Altenew 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop! We are on day 3 of the anniversary celebration. I am so excited to be part of this celebration since I am a big fan of Altenew from their first release three years ago. If you are following the hop, you should come here from Eunyoung Lee blog.

Originally, I was going to just make 1 card, but once I start, I ended up with 2 cards. For my 1st card, I used Beautiful Day set. I heat embossed the flowers and then color them with ZIG Kuretake Watercolor Brush. For each flowers I used 2 colors to create the color blend.




Here's a close up look of the flowers. To each flower I added white dots just for fun. :)




Once the first card get going, my mojo went in full gear and I made this 2nd card using Best Mom and Magnolias For Her. I used the same technique as my 1st card. I colored the flowers first in 1 color and before they completely dry, add the second color and gently blend them.




For the sentiment, I used Bold Alphabet Die set and die cut the "xo". I was debating for a long time whether I should get this dies set and decided to get it  because they're also great for scrapbooking. I do still dabble in scrapbooking and make pages whenever I could. Here's a close up look of the magnolia. I just love this flower & the way the coloring turned out!!
