Altenew Educators "Alphabet Name Game" Blog Hop and Linky Party + Giveaway


Hello and Welcome to the Altenew Educators "Alphabet Name Game" blog hop and linky party. You should have arrived here from Eva Bussom , if not you can go back to the start of the at any time by visiting the Altenew Card Blog at any time.

What is the Alphabet Name Game? It's a really fun way of deciding the concept of your next project. You take the first letter of your name and create a project based on a technique/style that begins with that letter. So as my name is Terri I choose a technique/style that starts with "T", I had to think about which direction to go with; tonal, texture, torn, typography etc I chose Texture.

I love to add texture to my card (sometimes more than others) the quickest and easiest wat is to use one of Altenew's 3D embossing folders, for my card today I used the Organic Stones embossing folder, it is one of the best 3D effects I've seen in embossing folders, it's so crisp and detailed. I can't help but keep rubbing my hand over the surface to feel those bumps,lol

I embossed some dusty pink card and used the Build-A-Flower Wild Rose stamp set to add my floral image and sentiment. I also added a few Black Enamel dots to embellish my card.
