Altenew 2021 A Year in Review Blog Hop & Giveaway

Hello craft friends!

Thank you for joining me from that talented lady Bridget Casey

You are here because I am participating in a unique and exciting blog hop today. The hop takes you and us down memory lane, sharing projects created as designers and guest designers with Altenew during 2021! I am also sharing over on my Instagram too!

Above is a collage of some of the cards I designed in the earlier part of this year with Altenew when I did a stint of guest designing.

Top Left: I absolutely loved the Grid Cover Die It was perfect as a backdrop for florals. It reminded me of trellis work, and can be cut in whatever colour works for your design. The florals are the beautiful Vintage Garden Suite that included stencils, stamps and dies.

Top Right: One of my favourites. Isn't it funny that sometimes it's the simplest cards that end up being favourites? I did a bit of ink blending just lightly to offset the florals. I stamped the Tall Foliage stamp over it, then stamped, coloured & die cut out the florals from the Adore You stamp set.

Bottom Left: There's that Grid Cover Die again, but this time in black. Pink and Black can be so striking when put together, and that's what I did here. The orchids in the Spotted Orchid stamp set are so life like and really stamp well. To finish this card I added gold, yes gold for extra bling! I die cut the Fancy Hello out of gold shiny card stock. The font is sooooo gorgeous and elegant.

Bottom Right: Tall Foliage, one of my absolute favourite Altenew releases of this year. So versatile, so simple, and so easy to use. For these cards, I teamed them up with the Deco Cover Die Set to show how to make a slimline but also a classic A2 sized card.
