Altenew January Release Blog Hop II + Giveaway!

http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=888816&U=1386704&M=66850&urllink=
Welcome to the Altenew January Release Blog Hop II!  Altenew is releasing 18 stamp sets, 18 die sets, and 12 inks today! You can join in the Blog Hop from the beginning, by visiting the Altenew Blog Post HERE. You should have arrived at my Blog from Heather Hoffman's Blog.

I am sharing a layout today, using the new Hibiscus Bouquet stamp set and the Basic Borders stamp set. I have to say, that I am no expert stamper, but I really love the stamp designs and ink pads from Altenew. They make stamping so easy, and I Iove the stamped images on my layout, mixed with products from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit.





I started my layout by stamping several of the flowers and leaves from the Hibiscus Bouquet stamp set, on to White card stock. I used a variety of ink pads from Altenew, including Warm Sunshine, Coral Berry, Frosty Pink, Forest Glades, Olive, Moss and Bamboo. Next, I fussy cut all of my stamped images and started the design of my layout. I used a large cut file in the background of the layout, backed with patterned paper from the Reflection Scrapbook Kit. Then I placed one of the large floral chipboard pieces from the Kit on the bottom left side of the large circle. 



I wanted to use the chipboard piece, as the anchor point for adding all of my stamped flowers. I arranged the flowers on each side of the chipboard, adding pop dots to some of them, to create varying dimension in the large cluster. I also used the fun arrow image from the Basic Borders stamp set, around the outer edge of the cut file. I placed the border stamp on my background paper, in a curved shape, and then picked it up with my clear block. I used the Coral Berry ink to repeat the image around the outside of the cut file.
