Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop Giveaway ($300 in Total Prizes!)

Hello and welcome to Altenew August 2022 Marvelous Monthly Series Release Blog Hop!

You probably came from Michelle Burnier. If not – you may consider starting from the beginning at Altenew Card Blog and see what other members of Altenew design team and guest designers have created. There are so many beautiful projects from talented designers. Also at each stop, you have a chance to win a prize.


For my card today I used a marvelous Craft-A-Flower: Open Peony Layering Die Set. Craft-A-Flower products are always fun and easy to work with. I love layered die-cut flowers that you can get using these products.

I die-cut the flowers parts out of the color cardstock from the Rose Petal and Summer Afternoon Gradient Cardstock Sets. The leaves were made using the Green Meadows Gradient Cardstock.

To make the background I used the Dark Gray Cardstock, which I embossed using the Playful Circled Embossing Folder.

To make the sentiment I used the One-Go Birthday Greetings Stamp and Die Bundle.


$300 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 08/18/2022 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 08/20/2022.
