Altenew February 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello there crafty friends,

The wonderful Altenew February release is here! You should have arrived here from the amazing Lydia Evans' blog! I can't wait to see what beauties she created for today's post!

I'm going to keep this post short, because I've made quite a few projects again, so there's lots of photos! I hope you guys don't mind... If you have any questions on how I made something, please don't hesitate to ask!

I didn't think I'd make my favorite cards with the smallest stamp set in this release! The Vintage Roses Add-On stamp set, as its name suggests, works with the Vintage Roses stamp set. I think it totally works on it own too, what do you think?


I also used the Mega Alphabet B die on this card.


Mini Thank You note cards using the same colors and design:




Next up, two cards with the Beautiful Peony stamp and die sets (also available as a bundle). The striped and grid backgrounds I've created with the Pinstripe stamp set




Tulips have been one of my favorite flowers since my childhood! My sweet late grandma had many in her garden and she would bring me a big bouquet for my birthday each year. My birthday is beginning of May, back then we still had tulips that time. Now they are gone in April. Global warming I guess :(. Long story short, I obviously had to have the Exotic Tulips stamp and die sets (also available as a bundle)! For the sentiment on the first card I used the Better Together stamp set.








Last but not least I have a card with the Dotted Blooms stamp and die sets (available as a bundle too).



I hope you've found something here today that inspires you!

And now the fun part...Giveaways, yay! Read on to find out how you can win! Good Luck!
