Altenew: A Year In Review Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello Everyone, and welcome back! It’s almost a new year, and a good time to look back over the last twelve months. One of the blessings I celebrate from the past year is my crafty relationship with Altenew. I have been a huge fan since I began crafting about the same time Altenew opened their business. So I was thrilled this year when Altenew asked me to guest design!

There are so many gorgeous stamp, die, and embossing folders that I love from Altenew, and it was very difficult to narrow it down to my top four favorite creations this year. However, this is my favorite! I used the Blooming Tulips and Sweet Gingko stamps and dies for this card. You can view the video tutorial HERE.

How pretty is this Artist Marker colored Paint A Flower Lotus Outline card? I adore the combination of turquoise, reds, and yellow in this one.

Altenew 3D embossing folders stole the show and my heart this year! I also tried the watercolor brush markers for the first time on this Spoon Daisy card. You can view the video tutorial HERE.

I know the new Craft Your Life Kit was a favorite with everyone, and the very first, Seasonal Blooms, was spectacular! This kit was full of goodies for non-stop crafting.

I couldn’t resist adding a few other favorites! This edgy mixed media card made me giddy!
Here’s another 3D embossing folder favorite! It is so easy to ink blend and add a sentiment.
This Seas the day card almost made the top four cut. My dad had a big sailboat and we loved family time sailing.


Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to five lucky winners, and a $15 gift certificate to four lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog HERE or share Altenew projects with #AltenewBest2021 on social media by 01/06/2022 for a chance to win. Nine winners will be announced on the Altenew Winners Page on 01/08/2022.
