Altenew Educators “Giving Thanks” Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway

Altenew Educator Blog Hop June 2020

Hi Crafty Friends! I am so glad that you’ve joined us today to give thanks and celebrate the heroes helping us to stay healthy and safe during these difficult times. My favorite quote from Mr. Rogers is, “… Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.” Isn’t that fitting for today?

Altenew EBH June 2

This is my first invitation to participate in an Altenew hop, and I am thrilled to participate as a certified educator. I’m even sharing a video tutorial for this pretty floral card, and I give tips for simple watercolor effects for backgrounds and stamped floral images. You can watch the video below:

This is no ordinary hop! We want you to join in on the fun as well. There is a Linky Party going on at the Altenew Card Blog. All you have to do is link up your creations based on the theme of the hop, which is “Giving Thanks,” and mention that you are taking part in the Altenew Educators Blog Hop and Linky Party. So what are you waiting for?! Link up!

  2. Laura, you used so many wonderful techniques on that card and the yellows and blue-greys are beautiful together


  3. Thank you so much for making the video. It’s very well done and your card is beautiful. I learned about spraying the inked stamp and also about watercoloring the ink once it’s on the paper already. Thanks again!


  4. Your card is lovely! Thank you for the informative video!!! I think I will have to watch it a number of times, and practise, practise, practise! Thank you for sharing!
