Altenew: A Year In Review Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello!
Today I am happy to be joining a lovely group of talented designers for the Altenew Year in Review Blog hop. You should have arrived from Enza Gudor's blog. If not there is a complete list of all stops along this hop located at the end of this post in case you want to start from the beginning or have gotten lost.

This year was the first time I had the privilege of using Altenew products so I do not have too many to share but I did pick some of my favorites to share with you today!


Altenew_Summer Swirls_Chari Moss

I really loved the look of the limited color scheme for this ice cream card.  Creating the background with the smaller ice cream image in the Summer Swirls stamp set finished off the card perfectly.

Altenew_Arabesque Medallion_Heartfelt Thanks_Chari Moss

This card was so fun to create with the emboss resist and ink blending. The Arabesque Medallion is nice and big and looks great off centered off the card.  To add texture to the blended background I used water droplets and metallic paint splatters. I also painted in some of the areas of the medallion with gold metallic watercolor for some shine.  The clear and irridecent yellow sequins add even more shine!

These next few cards I created with the New Day Card Kit.  I really enjoyed using some of the fabulous papers in this kit and embellishing them.

Here are a couple more from the card kit. I really liked using all the colors of the matte dots in the set on the left card. Now for more hop details and goodies

  11. I've never forgotten the Ice cream card you did! It is so cheery, and I know it would be welcome any time of the year, not just the summer months. In your work you take risks. By that I mean they would be a risk for me, as I would never think to combine certain colors, and elements to a card because I tend to have a problem with wanting everything to be 'matchy matchy.' Congrats to you doing what I never could, as the results are beautiful!

  53. I love that your cards look so simple, but I have now made enough to know that "simple" design does not equal "easy to create!" Thank you for these wonderful examples. I really want to try that 'thankful heart' background! I still have to do Mothers' Day cards before I pack up the craft room, and that card gave me a great idea. Thanks again!

  63. Your cards are more simple and that's
    the kind I like to make. They seem
    to be more one layer cards and are
    the best to send to people that
    you're not sure are going to
    appreciate the work of a fussy
    card. Thanks for the ideas.
    Love that Valentine card with
    the hearts in the squares.
