Altenew Certified Educators Instagram Hop - Pantone Colour of the Year 2022


Hi, friends!

Altenew Certified Educators are joining a fun instagram hop and the theme is “𝐏𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐂𝐨𝐥𝐨𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟐 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐌𝐨𝐫𝐞” showing off periwinkle + one or more color projects! The hop starts from @altenewllc so make sure you start from the beginning!

Altenew is giving away a $20 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners! For a chance to win, please follow @altenewllc and @annemarie_the_crafty_kiwi and leave a comment by 03/24/2022

Altenew will draw 5 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this Instagram hop and announce the winners on Altenew’s Educator Instagram hop post on 03/25//2022.

Head over to your NEXT STOP: @jaycee.gaspar

Here are 2 cards I created for this hop using the Craft-Your-Life Project Kit: Never Stop Dreaming
I was determined to get a blend of ink to create a periwinkle colour which was as close as possible to Very Peri. For both cards, I used a combination of Altenew Cloudy Sky and Hydrangea dye inks to create the purple hue. For the leaves I sued freyed leaf and forest glades. 

The first card uses the layering stamp set, stamped in silver embossing powder and the sentiment was silver heat embossed using a stamp from Just a Number stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on vellum so that it would not cover up too much of the pretty background.


The second card uses the 3D embossing folder, some matt silver cardstock from my stash and the sentiment from the coordinating stamp set. I painted the label frame with silver metallic watercolour paint. 

Thank you for stopping by my channel. I hope I have inspired you. Below is the full instagram hop list for your convenience. 

Until next time, happy crafting xx
