Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway

Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew September 2017 Release Blog Hop Day 1. This release has so many exciting and fun products! You should have arrived from the amazing Debby Hughes‘s blog. Here is the list for your convenience:

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog by Thursday, October 5th at 11:59 pm EDT for a chance to win. The winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog on Saturday, October 7th.

The layout I am sharing for today’s hop features the gorgeous Halftone Stars Stamp and Nesting Die set.

The stars are the focus of this page about my daughter’s birthday.

I picked one of the patterned papers from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection that had different shades of pink in it and used it as my background. I wanted it to coordinate with the colors in the pictures. The same idea was behind the choice of Altenew Crisp Inks I decided to stamp the stars with. Here they are: Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Pinkalicious, Razzleberry. I also used Evening Gray Crisp Ink for a few stars as I wanted to bring in a more contrasting color.

The cut file you see here is from The Cut Shoppe and is called The Midnight Hour. I modified it a little to create a big star in the middle section. The sentiments are also included in the new Halftone Stars set. They are perfect for these birthday pictures!

Thank you for stopping by! Don’t forget to leave a comment on the Altenew blog for a change to win a gift certificate to the store. Your next stop is the super talented Vicky Papaioannou.

Have a lovely day!
