Altenew's 5th Birthday blog hop


Hey Crafty friends, I can not tell you how thrilled I am to be here, as a gust designer for Altenew's 5th Birthday blog hop and giveaway.  You should have arrived here from Lisa Fonseca's blog, if not don't panic, you can go back to the start of the hop and catch up on any stops you've missed.

As Altenew are celebrating their 5th birthday I thought it only right that I created 5 cards, one for each year they have been in business.


 

My card for year one celebrates the Painted flowers stamp set and Label love stamp set, both of which were included in the first ever release from Altenew.  


I used the Tea Party crisp ink set along with the Green meadows crisp inks to stamp my flowers and leaves. A little gold twine and splatter to the background finishes off the look perfectly.


Year 2 saw the released of the Baby Zoo stamp  and die set, I just adore this set. Perfect for so many occasions even though it's a birth/pregnancy related set.  


I wanted the card to have a soft pastel feel so chose to use Mountain Mist, Cotton Candy, Mango Smoothie, Peach Perfect, Moon Rock and Jet Black inks. The pattern in the background was inked through the Stone Wall Stencil.


In year 3 Altenew released the Layered Medallions cover dies, there are two dies (Layered Medallion die A and Layered Medallion B, these were my first cover die purchase and I love them so much. 


 Here I created a radiating pastel blend both on my base card and also on my sentiment. I cut the layered medallions from white and silver and use foam pads to add dimension. 


In year 4 Altenew released the amazing Totally Tropical and Parrot Paradise sets, perfect for summer cards and tropical themed parties.  I combined the two sets to create a cute card in a pastel pallet. 


The Parrot was coloured using Altenew's Artist markers, while the flowers and leaves were coloured with crisp inks using the layered stamps.


This last year Altenew released the amazing Versatile Vase set along with the Wallpaper Art stamps set, but that's not all! They also released an amazing new product; the mask stencil. I can not tell you how much off a game changer the mask stencils are, weather you use them for masking when creating layered compositions or for inking through they are a must have. 


 I used the the Versatile Vase stencil to add colour to my vase to create the water.
