Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew August Release Blog Hop Day 2! If you came here from Laura Jane’s blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to the Altenew Scrapbook Blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

There are 13 new stamp sets, 12 die sets, and the new storage pouches being released today and they are now available for purchase at the Altenew online store.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Thursday, August 31st at 11:59 PM EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew Scrapbook Blog on Saturday, September 2nd.

In addition, one winner will be chosen from the comments left on this blog post and will receive a $30 gift certificate!

Now let me share what I have created for today's blog hop. For my first card I used the beautiful Doodled Lace Cover Die. I’m in love with this die, it has a perfectly delicate and feminine look.

I cut the lace out of white cardstock and lightly brushed over it with a sponge dauber using Sand Dunes ink. Then I used Altenew pink marker to add a little bit more colour and adhered to kraft cardstock base. My XO sentiment was cut out of glitter gold cardstock with Bold Alphabet die set.

For my next card I used a great frame stamp from the Framed Stamp Set. First I stamped a floral background using Floral Fantasy set and some Altenew Crisp Dye inks: Pink Diamond, Cotton Candy, Peach Perfect, Sand Dunes, Sea Glass, Frayed Leaf and Forest Glades.

Then I stamped in black and fussy cut the frame. The “thank you” sentiment comes from the Heartfelt Sentiments stamp set.

For my last project I used the Envelope Liner Die Set and created a matching envelope for the previous card. I again used the Floral Fantasy stamp set and the same ink pads to create my background. A tiny leaf on the back of the envelope was stamped with Sand Dunes ink and cut out using Fantasy Floral Die set.

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy the rest of the hop!
