Altenew A Year In Review Blog Hop...

Today, over at Altenew, they are taking a look at some favorite projects of 2018.  I have been so blessed to hop along for many of this years release hops and so I definitely have a few favorites to share.  Altenew Stamps and dies have quickly become some of my most favorite stamps and I always feel so inspired when I see their newest designs. 

Here are 5 of my favorite projects of 2018....(all supplies linked at the end of this post)

Altenew November 2018 Release

This card was made using Handpicked Bouquet and the Watercolor Stripes Cover die.  I love a good white card base and how this beautiful bloom adds a pop of color.

Altenew November 2018 Release

Kind Confetti is an adorable stamp set that has so many possibilities.  I stamped a rainbow of colors here and then added the thank you die in white.  

Altenew Color Therapy

I have really enjoyed using the Altenew Artist Markers.  They blend so beautifully!  I colored up these blooms from the Best Mom stamp set and then layered the miss you die cut in white card stock. Super easy!

June 2018 Altenew

Altenew has a beautiful selection of banner supplies.  I was able to create this clean and simple banner with just a few letters and the Pinstripe Stamp set.  

Altenew June 2018 Release

This last hello card was so much fun to make.  I used the Ditsy Print stamp set by heat embossing several of the images on a piece of vellum.  I did a little copic coloring on the back of the vellum so the color would show through.  I added it to an aqua card base and then attached the mega hello die on the top.

MFT Wednesday Sketch...

Hello friends!  I am stopping in today with a new card for the MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge.  First off, here is my card...

MFT WSC417

To create this card I used the Gift Box Cover Up for the background.  I added in the Stitched Rainbow Die and the Puffy clouds  to create the look.  I added in a sentiment from the Warm and Feathered Stamp set and then topped it off with some rain drops to finish off the card.

MFT Birthday Project...

Today MFT has a new birthday challenge up for this months Birthday Project.  The challenge is all about sparkle.  Or glitter.  Or sequins.  Or anything that shines!  I decided to pull out that gorgeous MFT Glitter cardstock to create this clean and simple card...

MFT Birthday Project

To create this card, I stamped that hilarious sentiment on the card base with my Misti to make sure it was nice and straight.  Next, I went back in and did some scoring around the sentiment so there would be just a little texture in the background.  Last, I die cut 2 of the Wine Service wine glasses out of the Gold card stock.  I do love that paper!  I popped up the wine glasses on foam tape to finish off my card!

MFT Birthday Project

To check out all the details of this latest Birthday Challenge, head on over to the MFT Challenge Blog.  I am sure you will be seeing lots more glittery inspiration over there! 

Thanks so much for stopping in today!

Altenew December 2018 Stamp Release Hop...

Welcome to the December 2018 Altenew Release Hop!  I am so happy to be joining the girls at Altenew this month to share some amazing new stamps and dies.  Throughout this post, you will be able to see my 3 samples using new stamps, a giveaway and at the bottom, there is a full list of stops on this hop!  

First up, a card using the new Nature Snippets Stamp set, along with the Mega Greetings 3 stamps and Friend die....

Altenew

Using the Nature Snippet set, I created a fun background in spring colors.  I did a little ink blending a piece of cardstock so my reds would match and then die cut the friend sentiment.  I cut a little banner and stamped the "For My" from the Mega Greetings set.  To finish off this card, I added some clear rain drops for a fun little detail.

Altenew

I used Nature Snippets again for this clean and simple card...

Altenew

This was super easy and quick to create.  Stamping the gorgeous circle image in the background and then adding the sentiment on top, makes for a fast card!

Altenew

For this last card, I wrapped a light gray card base and wanted to keep going with the gray theme, so I decided to create the flowers in gray with little pops of red in the center...

Altenew

I popped up the card front panel onto the card base and then added in the darker gray thank you die cut.  This new set is called Ruffled Flowers and it is definitely one of my new favorites!  These flowers are gorgeous and so easy to stamp!

Altenew
