Altenew Celebrating Parents Card Drive Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Hi Everyone!

I'm so excited and honored to be part of Altenew's fantastic Blog Hop called: Celebraiting Parents, to honor and raise awareness of the Celebrating Parents Card Drive: "Our goal is to send cards for the elderly that lives in nursing homes or shelters to let them know they’re not forgotten". Please check out the Celebrating Parents Card Drive and join this great cause by sending in cards.







This card will make a Beautiful Mother's Day card or a monogrammed Thank You/ Birthday Card. I used the Lovely Peony set to create my wreath. I used watercolors to color the flowers and the M is diecut with my top favorite Inline Alpha die set. For my ordinary watercolors I Always use Arches but the paper I used for this is Canson's student paper wich is great and very affordable for cardmaking when you want the cardbase to match too.

20% of the profits earned from the following sets (Best Dad, Painted Rose, Penned Rose, Extra Special, and Best Mom) by 6/17/2018 will be donated to Food Bank of Central New York to support seniors in need.







For my next card I mixed some stamps from the two sets Best Dad stamp and die bundle and
Hug Me - Stamp and die bundle. I used copic markers for my coloring and the DAD is diecut using the wonderful Inline Alpha die set.

Don't miss that you get save 35% Off on the Best Dad Stamp & Die Bundle from 4/20/2018 until 4/23/2018 at 11:59 pm EDT. No coupon code needed to enjoy this deal.
 






This Peony here is stamped on Arches light weight paper and colored with watercolors. The background is inked and spattered with watercolor. And once angain I used the Beautiful Inline Alpha die set for my diecut letters. The stamped sentiment is from Best Dad stamp and die bundle.





Once again I combined stamps from the awesome sets
Best Dad stamp and die bundle and Hug Me - Stamp and die bundle to create a sweet Father's Day card - The bg stamp of Boston - My favorite city in the World! (I was an Au Pair in Lexington MA when I was 20 and fell in LOVE <3 a="" from="" href="https://altenew.com/products/sketchy-cities-america" is="">Sketch Cities America
