Welcome to the Altenew February 2018 Release Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Anna Komenda’s blog, then you are right on track. You can always start the hop over on the Altenew Card Blog.

Have you spotted any favorites? I definitely have. I love the Trigonometry set. I LOVE MATH and SHAPES so it is right up my alley. Another favorite is the Wings of Hope set. I can see myself using it for all sorts of projects and I love the softness of the floral designs. I made a layout with the Trigonometry set and a card with the Wings of Hope set.

For my layout, I used the triangles to create a background. I mixed stamped images and dies to add depth and contrast. I kept the bottom free of design so that I could place my title. I used the new crisp ink colors and I really love these new tones.

For the title, I used the Halftone Stars and Blooming Bouquet set and mixed words from both.

You can see how I created the layout in the video below or watch it in HD on YouTube.

My card was really simple. I layered the different stamps from the Wings of Hope set and used the die cuts to cover the different stamped images. I opted to use soft peachy pinks and brown tones. The sentiment comes from the new Crafty Life set. This is THE SET to have for creating cards for crafty friends.
