Altenew: A Year in Review Blog Hop 2017

Hello, friends! Welcome to Altenew‘s A Year in Review Blog Hop! And you are here from Isha Gupta blog ;)) Time to remember our favorite projects we made in 2017, and I am so excited to join this hop as the guest designer and to show you again few my cards. I didn’t make too many but I really love them and Altenew’s products.

Altenew is giving away a $40 gift certificate to FIVE lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 01/03/2018 for a chance to win. Five winners will be announced on the Altenew Card Blog and Altenew Scrapbook Blog on 01/06/2018. I also will pick one lucky winner from my blog comment section who will receive a $20 gift certificate!

On this post I use compensated affiliate links (which means if you make a purchase I will get a small commission with no additional cost for you).

The first project is the duo of two cosmos cards I made with Space Travel stamp set this spring. I was so passionate about watercoloring and making the starry sky those days. I stamped the planets with light gray inks and colored them. Also I made the cosmos backgrounds on the watercolor paper. The simple sentiments and the cards are ready!

The second card I want to share with participated in layered dies release. Here I used Layered Floral Cover Die A & B Bundle — really awesome idea for covers! Just look how amazing it turns out. I sponged the flowers and leaves with Altenew’s Crisp inks and added some details with markers. Also this card is a shaker — you can see sequins there ;)) The sentiment is from  Label Love stamp set.

The next card is my favorite this year — so fresh and simple! I used Modern Deer and Birch Land stamp sets here — they work perfectly together. Here I used only Altenew’s Crisp inks for background blending and stamping. To make the shadowing for the deer I used misti-tool and stamped the one image twice at the same place. Also I added some sun rays with the stencil and white pigment ink.

This card I already shared three weeks ago on my guest designer post ;)) (you can find it here — read more how I made this card and two another ones). I used Night Before Christmas and Halftone Holidays stamp sets here.

And the last cards I want to show today — my two ones I made at the day I’ve got my Painted Jellyfish stamp set. Oh I wanted it so bad!! I really like these jellyfishes! On both card I tried the multi layered embossing together with Altenew’s Crisp inks.

I hope you enjoy this hop and have amazing Holiday mood! Your next stop is Lilith Eeckels blog!

    I commented on someone else’s galaxy yesterday—I haven’t been a fan, but now see it as a possibility to try, thanks to the brighter colors. I like the dark around the edges, but that streak of pink behind the focal images really pops! Thanks so much for that one and all the other examples of loveliness too!
