Altenew Ultimate Blog Hop Challenge

Note: One-Layer Simplicity is pleased to be a part of the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop ! Our OLS September Challenge: Back in Time continues until September 24th at midnight eastern time. We hope you'll play along with both challenges! 







Hello and welcome to the Altenew Blog Hop Challenge! One-Layer Simplicity is joining 18 other blogs to celebrate the fun of doing challenges. Check out all these amazing challenges!




Challenge Details

1. The Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop runs September 13 through October 5.

2, Altenew is offering a free gift with every purchase through September 16...the Coffee Ring stamp set will be included with qualifying orders while supplies last.

3. Five $35 gift certificates will be awarded to winners chosen at random from comments on all blog posts in the hop listed below. The lucky winners will be announced on the Altenew Blog on October 17.

4. Five projects will be featured on the Altenew blog on October 17!

My project for the Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop also follows the rule of One-Layer Simplicity, which is to keep your project to one layer of cardstock, folded in half...no other layers allowed. I also used Altenew stamps because, you know, they are beautiful and it's the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop. For our usual OLS challenge players, feel free to stick to one layer, or layer it up to your heart's content! If you have some Altenew stamps, great, but if not, play along anyway!

The main goal, as always, of our challenge is to HAVE FUN.



To make my card, I cut the curve freehand with a craft knife and edged it with a silver Prisamcolor metallic marker. After masking the inside of the card, I stamped the lovely butterfly image from Altenew's Botanical Garden in Impress Fresh Ink grass and surrounded it with roses in Memento Luxe rose bud.

The sentiment is from Altenew's versatile Sentiments and Quotes stamp set and was placed on the acrylic block to fit the curve of the paper edge.


A few silver beads unify the top and bottom of the card.

I hope you'll have fun playing along with the Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop. I did!!!
