Altenew 8th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway (over $2,000 in Total Prizes)

I am delighted to be joining Altenew to celebrate their 8th Anniversary. You should have arrived here from Yasmin Diaz but if you arrived here by chance the blog hop starts over at the Altenew Card Blog

Here is my card to say a Happy Anniversary Altenew and Congratulations on everything you have achieved.

I wanted to show how to step up a card design by adding a little extra time and detail. You can completely change the look of a card and up your designs. Below is my first card. It has a stamped image and colouring plus a sentiment and strip of Washi.

Compare this to the finished card where I have embossed the images in silver and fussy cut the whole piece and applied to the card base with foam tape for some dimension. I also added some ink to the background and some splatters. I also changed up the sentiment to be less harsh and compliment the background. What do you think?

Now to the giveaway. Altenew has over $2,000 in total prizes! Altenew is giving away a $80 Gift Certificate to 5 lucky winners and one Altenew Academy Online Class($8.95 value) to 15 lucky winners. There are also 26 awesome companies/crafty friends who are celebrating with us, and they are offering the following prizes:

Be sure to leave comments by 4/15/2022 for a chance to win one of 50 prizes! To make the hop more exciting, start your comment with “Hi from (city or country where you’re from)!” 50 winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the blogs listed below and will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog on 4/21/2022.

This is the end of the hop for today. You can circle back to the Altenew Card Blog or if you have hopped all the way the celebrations will continue tomorrow.

Take care for now

Altenew Whimsical Fairy Tale Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello. I am delighted to be joining Altenew for this blog hop to celebrate the Whimsical Fairy Tale release. You should have arrived there from Bridget Casey but if you landed here by chance the blog hop starts over at the Altenew Card Blog

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 03/31/2022 for a chance to win. 

Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 04/02/2022.

I love using the embossing folders in white along with a coloured image and some light ink blending look. I went for a spring feel with my first two cards.

For my next two cards I went for a clean and simple approach which can be used for more masculine card ideas. A rainbow stencil does more than just create coloured rainbows!
