Altenew: A Year In Review Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello and welcome to this special "A Year In Review Blog Hop" by Altenew. As the title already suggests, we're going to review the past year and showcase some of our favorite projects.



I absolutely love the products from Altenew! They have a wide variety of products, which means something for everyone :)


This is going to be a long post so get a cup of steaming coffee and enjoy!! You should have come here from the super talented Justine Hovey's Blog.
Here are my Top 4 projects from the last year and as you see, there is a wide range of AWESOME products to create a variety of styles.




Below are some details about the projects :)


This card is made using the whimsical nature style stamp/ die. These cute images are from Love You So Mush. I used the stamp and the dies both. I also used the Fluorescent Green and Carribean Sky embossing powders along with Coral Berry, Warm Sunshine inks by Altenew.




My 2nd card above is of coarse using the florals :) I used, Frosted Garden stamp and dies. You can buy them in stamp and die Bundle too. This such an artistic stamp. I went with the soft feel using vellum. I used the sentiment from Beautiful Day stamp set. 




Now as I mentioned before, Altenew doesn't have just the florals but other style images too :)


Here I used the adorable Ninja Invasion stamp and dies. You can also buy them in stamp and die Bundle. I also used the Sketched Lines Stencil for this. To tell you the truth, I never thought I could create with this stamp but this set proved me wrong...I actually enjoyed creating with this set :) I made a few cards for daughters and friends already as it has some lovely sentiments too...lol




Now, to see how versatile these products are, I made a scrapbook layout for my daughter. It's a wonderful memory so I had to document it :) I used the " Sweet Friend, Circled Sentiment stamp set, Sweet Friend, Doodled Lace Cover plate, Rose Filament Die. I also used the "Sketched Line stencil and the New Day Card Kit.



Here are some more of my favourites


Love how I could use these to create Traveler's journal pages. I used this beautiful layering flowers Heart Flowers stamp and dies. There is also an option to buy the stamp and die bundle. To create this I used a lot of other previously release products from Altenew. I used Beautiful Quotes, Sweet Friend, Circled Sentiment, Snowing stamps. The alphas, patterned papers and enamel dots are from the New Day Card Kit.




Here, I went a bit mixed media style. I used Sketched Lines Stencil, Beautiful Day Stamp Set, and Fantasy Floral 3d Die, those 3 are my all time favorites :) Along with I used the new Fluorescent Green and Rose Gold Crisp Embossing powders



Here I simply played with the layering dies and embossing powders. I used the Layered Floral Cover Die A & B Bundle , Super Script Stamp Set, Super Script Die set and Lavender Fields Crisp Ink. I used Rose Gold, Copper, Platinum Crisp Embossing Powders onto the Layered Floral Cover Die B. Again a beautiful mix of metallic shades and really pretty effect.



Well, there are many more but it will take too long. Sorry for the loooong post already :)
