{Altenew} 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop, Day 3 + Giveaway


Welcome to Day 3 of Altenew's 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop! If you missed Day 1 or Day 2 of the hop, be sure to visit those links and hop along for inspiration and comment for a chance to win one of 21 amazing prizes, all listed below. Here's the complete hop list for today:


As part of their anniversary celebrations, Altenew has a special offer on shipping! Now's the time to stock up on everything you ever wanted or knock a few items off your wish list! ;)


I made two cards for today's hop and the first one features Hug Me and Big World. The moment I saw Hug Me, I knew I had to have it. There are so many adorable foxes and they're perfect for mixing and matching with other Altenew stamp sets, like Big World!


I used two shades of greys, greens and blues and used the rock-and-roll technique to get more depth on the globe, the hearts and in the sentiment. I also love the dry embossed texture on the globe stand!


The sassy fox was coloured with Copic markers. To anchor the globe and the little fox, I used masking paper to split the sponging between the wall and the floor of the scene.


For my second project, I made two of the same card using Celebrations and Coffee Love. I used the largest of the Halftone Circles as a background or anchor for the buffet table, stamped with Mountain Mist to coordinate with Evergreen Bough distress ink. The Halftone Circles stamp set is so versatile that I could pretty much incorporate it into any card I make.


Celebrations and Coffee Love go so well together! I've used a sentiment from Celebrations here but it would be easy to swap in a sentiment from Coffee Love. All of the images were heat embossed and watercoloured with distress inks.


Altenew is giving away $50 gift certificates to FIVE lucky winners. There are also 12 awesome companies who are celebrating with us, and they are offering the following prizes:


Be sure to leave comments by Tuesday, April 25, 2017 at 11:59 PM EDT for a chance to win! 21 WINNERS will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the blogs listed above and will be announced on the Altenew blog on April 28th, 2017.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
