Hello Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. Welcome to the new Craft Your Life Project Kit: Never Stop Dreaming Release Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Craft Your Life Project Kit: Never Stop Dreaming

Craft Your Life Project Kit Never Stop Dreaming

Never stop dreaming! This stamp set features a stunning arrangement of flowers, leaves, and a sweet little bud. Color it in with your favorite mediums, with or without the help of the coordinating Simple Coloring Stencil. The sentiments offer words of encouragement and can be mixed and matched for the perfect message. Use the other elements included in the project kit to complete the look – we can't wait to see what you create!

I have two projects to share. Each is different from the next. Thanks to the fantastic design of this Project Kit, my projects are easy to create and yet eye-catching! Let's dive right in!

Card Inspiration

My first card is simple yet impactful. With the new Alcohol Ink Background Paper Pad, this card's background is easy to achieve!Altenew-PK Never Stop Dreaming-Alcohol Ink Paper Pad -002This card consists of only 3 main components: white heat-embossing, use of patterned paper, and vellum.

Altenew-PK Never Stop Dreaming-Alcohol Ink Paper Pad -001The stunning floral image speaks volumes. I love creating an overlay by using a large floral stamp. The stamp set from Craft Your Life Project Kit: Never Stop Dreaming is simply perfect for this purpose.

My next card is colored with the Hawaiian Shores Brush & Fine Tips.  Whether you are a beginner or advanced colorist, you will love coloring this set!

Altenew-PK Never Stop Dreaming-Hawaiian SeaaShore Markers and Fine Tips -002Believe it or not, I did ink-smooshing for the coloring. I love the organic look and color mix of the Hawaiian Shores Brush & Fine Tips.

Altenew-PK Never Stop Dreaming-Hawaiian SeaaShore Markers and Fine Tips -001Notice the Coordinating Embossing Folder from this kit? Here, I used it as part of the embellishment and it certainly works beautifully! I even managed to stamp the sentiment over the dry-embossed details. VERY cool, right?

Altenew-PK Never Stop DreamingAfter making two cards, I am still brimming with creative ideas that I have more to share! You MUST check out today's inspiring blog hop and be prepared to be wowed by our talented DT and Guest Designers!
