{Altenew} A Year in Review Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello and welcome to Altenew's Year in Review Blog Hop! I'm delighted to be joining Altenew, its guest designers and friends for the 2017 Year in Review Blog Hop. We're all sharing our favourite cards from 2017 to celebrate the amazing year Altenew has had! Below, you'll find my four favourite cards and three of them have start-to-finish videos. Simply click on the photos or links to go to the original post, video tutorial or shop for products.


My first card goes all the way to last spring when Altenew invited me to be a guest designer on their card blog. I used the Farmers Market stamp set to create a clean and simple card. In the video, I show how I was able to stamp the sentiment cleanly across all four layers of vegetables.



My second card was featured most recently in the December Release. I used the Ninja Invasion stamp set to create a masculine encouragement card for my son featuring a trio of pastel ninjas on a background stencilled with Sketched Lines



My third card was a recent revival of a similar card I made earlier in the year for Altenew's 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop. I used the Celebrations, Coffee Love and Halftone Circles sets to create a celebratory card for a new mom.



This final card is probably the most favourite Altenew card I've ever made. Those little foxes from Hug Me will be featured whenever they fit into a card. LOL! I paired them up with Coffee Love and Coffee Talk because those are a must-have, too, and because everyone needs get well cards in their stash.
