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!

CardKit1

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.

CardKit2

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

How nice all of these are. I am, for some reason, always drawn to ice cream cones, so yours is wonderful! Thanks for showing off those ideas for the Altenew products!

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!

Terri Trotter Earley said...[Reply to comment]

Great projects!

Lynne said...[Reply to comment]

All your cards was perfect ! (margessw@icloud.com)

bev p said...[Reply to comment]

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!

Aimee LaCroix-Slocum said...[Reply to comment]

Your cards are so much fun...I absolutely love the last ones from the card kit!

FABULOUS favourites!
Such a wonderful variety of designs!
My favourites are your inky medallion delicate rose with the touch of golden sparkle :)

Unknown said...[Reply to comment]

Absolutely beautiful and stunning set of cards. loved all of them.. thank you so much for the inspiration..

Mary Holshouser said...[Reply to comment]

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.

Andre M. said...[Reply to comment]

Awwww. The ice cream card is just precious. Love the cards you made with the New Day kit. Thanks for sharing your inspiration this year. Happy New Year.
