Altenew Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to the Altenew Markers Release Blog Hop + Giveaway!

You should have arrived from Jessica‘s blog. Here is the full list for your reference:

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to SIX lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Monday, November 27th for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog on Wednesday, November 29th.

Here is the layout I created for this hop:

Altenew - Markers - Enza Gudor
I started by stamping the floral image included in the Best Mom stamp set four times on smooth white card stock. I varied the position of the stamp to create two main clusters on opposite corners of the page. The Christmas colors in the picture called for reds and greens. The new Artist Markers Set C has the perfect shades of red, which I combined with the R318 included in Set A.

As you can see in the pictures, the flowers have different shading. Some are darker in the middle and lighter on the petals, others have darker tips and lighter centers. I thought it would be fun to vary the look a little bit. The greens I used are from the previously released Set A.
Next, I built a few layers behind my picture. All the patterned paper, as well as the heart wood veneers, are from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection. I used one of the red markers (R217) to color the wooden hearts and make them match the other colors on the page.

The title comes from one of the words included in the Holiday Script Words Die set. I cut it three times and adhered the layers together to make it thicker. All the other die cuts on the page are cut files from my stash.

I finished the layout with pearlescent Liquid Pearls, as well as Wink Of Stella glitter pen.

These markers are fantastic. They blend easily, and the colors are rich and vibrant.

Thank you for stopping by today. Don’t forget to leave a comment for a chance to win. Your next stop is Sveta‘s blog.

  1. You’re the first one on the hop to not do a card. I’m not a big scrapbooker. I do scrapbooks but I don’t get fussy with them like you did. I like your scrapbook page though. Thanks for showing it to us and thanks for giving us the chance to win something. I can’t wait to win those markers!
