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!

    Your cards are works of art. I LOVE your cosmos creations; the colors are so vibrant and well blended. They look so realistic. Your other cards are equally wonderful. I have the floral dies and I have not had the success using them you have. I will continue trying.
