Welcome to a fun blog hop! The August Altenew products have just been released and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways. You should have arrived here from the Altenew Scrapbook Blog. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please visit Altenew Card Blog

To inspire you today I created a gorgeous flower card. I combined 3 new stamp sets so you could see them all in action.

The gorgeous flower is from the Floral Art stamp set. It is a layering stamp set but you can use only the outline and color it with your favorite mediums. I went with the layers though since I love how quickly a card can come together. And I love the empty space the layer leaves on the flower. Such a fresh and clean look!

The sentiment is from another new stamp set called Hello Gorgeous. For a more interesting look I stamped a part of the sentiment directly on my card and heat embossed the other part.

I also stamped one of the backgrounds from the new Block Print stamp set. They create the perfect background if you use a subtle ink color. I used limestone and then added my focal points on top. Easy card to recreate and looks stunning!
