Altenew Ultimate Design Team Challenge Blog Hop ~ Double "D" Challenges

Good morning friends~  I'm excited to be participating in a blog hop of GINORMOUS size with Altenew's Design Team Blog Hop.  They've asked challenge blogs across the board to participate in this fun event that will keep you scrolling for hours.  

So here's my post for Double "D" Challenges.  I'll also be posting again for another fabulous design team.  I'll link both of my posts together so you don't miss a thing. ;0)  

This blog hop is sponsored by Altenew, so I was quite happy to pull out all of my Altenew stamp setsdies and inks to play along. The struggle was that I have so many of their beautiful sets, it was hard to choose which set I wanted to use so there's a bonus card at the bottom of this post.  

This card features Flower Arrangement stamps and coordinating dies.  I stamped out several of each of the beautiful flower and leaf images in the set and die cut them all.  The colors I used for the flowers are from Pocketful of Sunshine and Cool Summer Night.  I stamped the leaves using colors from the Green Fields collection. I heat embossed the sentiment in white onto black cardstock and cut it out using my electronic die cutting machine since there isn't a die to match the sentiment.

Next up is my bonus card:
I pulled out the Watercolor Stripes Cover Die to create the background in a snap and I added my most favorite flowers from Beloved Daisy.

Here's a link to my next post for this blog hop:

There is tons of inspiration to be seen and prizes to be won, so please hop on over to the Altenew Card Blog to see all the details.
