Altenew Wildflower Paper Crafting Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!  I love paper, which I think  is one of the many reasons I am a paper crafter.  If you are fond of paper then I know you will appreciate Altenew's gorgeous new Wildflower Collection too. The release is full of beautiful colors, fun patterns and lovely floral papers plus two gorgeous ephemera packs.  To celebrate, Altenew is hosting a blog hop with beautiful inspiration and fun prizes.  Link To Blog Hop

Cardmaking with Altenew Ephemera and Printed Cardstock

I created three cards for this release.  On my first card, all the colored paper is from the Wildflower Collection 6x6" Paper Pack.  I love Altenew's Hibiscus Garden 3D Layering Die Set and thought it would be fun to die cut the elements from different papers in the pack.  I used two pages for the flower, two different pages for the leaves and then the soft green for the background.  I added a bit of splatter with Altenew's Jet Black and Pure White ink sprays.  I pulled the sprayer out and tapped the hose for pefect splatter each time.  So much faster than mixing ink each time.

The second  card uses Bitty Bits Ephemera for a fast and colorful card.  For the background, I again splattered a white card base with Pure White and Jet Black ink splatters.  Next I used the Garden Trellis Cover Die and patterned paper from the Wildflower Collection 6x6" Paper Pad  to die cut a lovely background overlay.  I then arranged and layered the ephemera and adhered with foam tape. The packet has loads of die cuts, so I have plenty left over for future projects.  I finished off the card by adding Cherry Blossom Enamel Dots

My third card is similar with a Garden Trellis die cut overly cut from a page from the Wildflower Collection 6x6" Paper Pad.  The background is again a paint splattered page from the same pad.  I then arranged and layered ephemera  from The Pink Posy Pack.  Lastly, I added Cherry Blossom Enamel Dots to the flower centers.
