Today I am happy to be part of the Altenew blog hop, celebrating the March release! You should have arrived here from Agnieszka’s blog, but if you want to start the blog hop from the beginning the full list is at the bottom of this post! Amazing designers are playing along, with tons of inspiration and lots of giveaways so make sure to join the fun and leave everyone some love!
For my card I used the beautiful Garden Treasure stamp set and dies! How can I resist this gorgeous stamp set now that spring is here?
The stamp set gives you different layers so that you can stamp the flowers and the leaves with different shades of inks to do your shading. However they do give you the outline image as well! So you can choose how to work with them. I just stamped the outline and had fun with my watercolor pens.
A flower card is perfect for every occasion so just use any sentiment you like! To finish it off I just had to add some glitter at the background as well as stick a few of those art pebbles that look like morning dew drops.
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate through my blog to ONE lucky winner!

Your card is gorgeous and I think the background you created with the moonstone paste is stunning! Thank you for such a great video, I am loving the Garden Treasure stamp set.
Very pretty, this card has so much dimension!
Very pretty card & beautifully layered!
Beautiful as always!! Do you like the tonic watercolor pens better than the zig??
The tonic ones have more flow, which I love, but they come only in 12 colors for now, since they just released. Which is good in one way since you don’t get overwhelmed by not knowing which red to use! On the other hand you don’t have as many options as with ZIG.
They both have beautiful results and they are easy to use and blend. Similar products really! The only difference I see is the flow.
Such a beautiful card, wonderful coloring too.
Amazing release!! I love all the different stamp sets and dies.
I think this is one of my favorites sets in the release. And your project is just lovely. Thanks for the inspiration!
Great creative. I love the stamp set. Great release.
Beautiful card! Thank you!
beautiful card, Vicki!!
You’re my FAVORITE art journalist! Like everything else you create, your card is glorious. I love the bright, cheery colors you chose for your flowers and they are colored so beautifully.
What a beautiful card, Vicky. Love your coloring too!
Vicky, your card is exquisite! Your video made your process so clear. I love flowers, and I am definitely going to have to purchase the Garden Treasure stamp and die set! Your coloring and shading are perfect. I guess I will have to purchase those Nuvo aqua flow pens, too. And the Tonic stencil! But will I be able to create something as beautiful as yours? Thanks for sharing!
Great card – I love the colors!
Lovely project. I love these new stamps with the extras built in, but they are a little out of my price range. Would certainly love to win.
