Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Feathered Lilies Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($300 in total prizes)

Hello and welcome to today's blog post. 

This Hop celebrates Altenew's new Craft Your Life Project Kit and we will all be sharing lots of ideas for the products.  You will also find details of a fabulous Giveaway.   So, be sure to hop along with us.    

Thanks to Maryam Perez for directing you here.  Next up is AnneMarie Caister.  Alternatively you can begin this hopping journey directly from the Altenew Card Blog.  The full list of blog hop participants can be found below.

My card today is 5 x 7 inch portrait style.

I have to say that this kit is really simply stunning.  I do love lillies and the stamped image is really big, bold and dramatic.

I used a stamp positioner and stamped the lillie in a pale ink, before using the gorgeous stencil to add colour using the Altenew Crisp Dye inks listed below:-
  • Baby Pink
  • Coral Berry
  • Lime
  • Fresh Leaf
  • Vanilla Cream
Once I had completed my stencilling, I placed the card stock back into the stamp positioner and re-stamped it in clear Versamark, before heat embossing in gold.  Then I die cut the lillies and applied the image to my black card layer.

I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment from the stamp set included in the kit and created a simple topper for it, backed with gold mirror card.

I love the impact of the bright beautiful lillies against the black background.

Here is how Altenew have summed up their beautiful kit:-

Craft Your Life Project Kit: Feathered Lilies Product Description: 

Floral beauty and messages of love all in one! The stamp set features a beautiful bouquet of lilies, elaborate leaves, and baroque elements. The minimalist style is a colorist's dream, as it provides plenty of open space to add coloring and shading. Not a coloring enthusiast? Our coordinating coloring stencils make adding color sweet and simple. Finally, we have maximized this stamp set with tons of sentiments so you can stay in touch with your loved ones.
