Seriously this three day hop has been so wonderful, how can you not be inspired! If you arrived here from Laura Bassen’s blog (Love!) then you are in exactly the right place (if not, then you best start here at the Altenew blog so that you don’t miss out on anything).
For my first card I chose to use the Beautiful Day stamp set and these flowers make me sooo happy…. swoon, honestly one of my most fave flower sets ever, thank you Altenew! I added an embossed sentiment from the Sohcahtoa set, which is another ‘well loved’ set for me. I actually made this card for the hop and then thought I might as well make it again and film as I created so that you could watch the process.
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.
And I couldn’t stop at one card so I decided to use one of the new mini stamp sets. This is the Peach Tree and it has all the wonderful layered stamp goodness of Altenew. I kept it fairly CAS and Prismacolor penciled in some backgrounds to create a masculine design.
Now it wouldn’t be a birthday party without some fun offers and BIG prizes……..

The “Beautiful Day” stamp set is among my top 3 favorites (Vintage Flowers and Painted Flowers) but to be truthful, I love all 20+ Altenew sets (images and sentiments) in my arsenal.
