Video : Altenew 2nd Anniversary Blog Hop!

Altenew_AnniversaryBlogHop_Graphic

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.

  1. What a beautiful card. Those stamps are gorgeous, and I love how you used all those lovely shades of gray and then one pretty blue blossom. Impeccable stamping. Might have to put this set at the top of my “must have” list. And your second card is a wonderful masculine card. Those trees are fantastic! Fabulous card, Therese. As always! : )

  2. Two absolutely gorgeous cars!! Love your work Therese, as always 🙂 Thank you for being on the Altenew team!

  3. The flowers are just so darn pretty!
    But now I am liking the colors too!
    Thanks for sharing
    I really need to get a set and try them out!

  4. Definitely “forever fabulous” Therese, and I agree this flower is extraordinarily beautiful 🙂 The greys look very elegant. Love how you positioned the two flowers and as always thank you or the video to see your work in action 🙂

  5. Two beautiful cards !
    Thank you for the video of the first one. I like the colours of your stylish card. The “long panel” for the sentiment is a great idea; it makes it look elegant.

  6. Wow! What beautiful cards. The contrast of the blue and gray is stunning! Thank you for sharing your creativity and adding to my wish list!

  7. You are one of my favorite cardmakers. I have the Beautiful Day set and I will be using your card as inspiration to make one of my own.

  8. I love both of your cards Therese especially that beautiful flower and I love the masking and your much more neutral shades for all but one of the flowers giving the spotlight effect, and then the three tree panels which would make a great masculine card. x

  9. Beautiful cards. I love the subtle canvas weave texture you achieved with coloured pencils on the background of your second card! Very interesting!

  10. Beautiful card! I love the placement of your flowers and the coloring on the first one and great triptych on the second!

  11. Awesome cards! I also love the beautiful day stamp set! It is so gorgeous! And I love the color combination you used on that card.

  12. Love both cards! The spotlight coloring on the floral card is gorgeous. I adore your masculine card; I find creating masculine cards to be a challenge so I appreciate the inspiration.

  13. I love that Beautiful Day stamp set, too. Your card is lovely. I also liked seeing an example of a card using the mini tree set.

  14. Beautiful, Therese, gray and blue – lovely combination. Your tree card is excellent as well. Great company, great designers, simply the best.

  15. What a beautiful cards!! I have this ‘Beautiful Day’ stamp set n totally love it. Your card gave me more ideas of using this stamp set in many more ways. Thank you so much. Love your all cards. 🙂

  16. What a beautiful card. I just ordered this stamp set and I can’t wait to get it so I can play and have some fun.

  17. The peach tree card is darling! 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. To say I’m a little obsessed is an understatement because I’m still adding and this doesn’t include the dies and inks. 😀 Happy Anniversary Altenew and happy crafting everyone!

  18. (oh, guess my first comment disappeared o.ô) Both cards are lovely, but especially the 2nd one is my favorite ❤

  19. (Ok, 3rd and last try.. my comment isn’t appearing here >.<)
    Your cards are both lovely, but especially the 2nd one is my favorite ❤

  20. WOW Therese, both of your cards are really lovely. This hop IS full of inspiration and I am totally enjoying it! I always love when a hop has such great video tutorials with such fntastic designers! Makes us ALL winners. TFS!

  21. Your isolated blue flower with the grays is just stunning, Therese! And I’m thrilled to see Peach Trees used as mine is still in the package. Thanks for inspiring me.

  22. Your cards are wonderful and I love the beautifully colored flower. We so seldom see flowers colored in blue so I find them to be especially appealing.

  23. Therese, beautiful! Love, love, the forever fabulous card, the color combo is gorgeous. Thanks for the video, sharing and inspiring.

  24. Such lovely cards…I’m especially drawn to the blue-gray one and that is not a color combo I myself use…maybe I will now! Thank You!

  25. This is the first time I have visited and I will def be back. Your cards are lovely and your tutorial was great.

  26. Both your cards are beautiful, but my favourite is the first one. Love the grey and blue combination. Happy 2nd anniversary Altenew!

  27. The Beautiful Day stamp set went in and out of my cart several times yesterday! Seeing your card makes me realize I made a mistake not buying it, but it remains at the top of my Wish List for future purchases (can’t buy everything we want all the time LOL). Also love the simplicity & elegance of the Peach Tree card!

  28. Your cards are outstanding as always. I have the floral stamp set and I love seeing how other designers use it…very helpful!

  29. Beautiful cards! Beautiful Day is a gorgeous set! I Love the blue and grey tones you chose on the first card; they gave it that subtle pow! Thank You for sharing them!

  30. I like the spotlighting of the blue flower on the first card. I also liked the white embossed sentiment on the navy strip dI liked the C & S style of the second card. Thanks

  31. So glad I found you (that sounds a bit creepy, huh?) What I mean is you’re such an amazing card artist with a unique sense of design. And so inspirational. Altenew really got a winner when they found you.

  32. Awesome card! I love the blue and gray and that bouquet, gorgeous! Thanks for the tutorial. Thanks too for the great idea on how to use the mini set. So inspiring!

  33. Both of your cards were so nice, but the Beautiful Day (my new favorite stamp!) is especially stunning. Thank you for sharing.

  34. I love it! I forget just how pretty leaving all but one flower outline colored. I also own one of these mini tree sets and you just inspired me to make a masculine card. (One off the harder cards for me to make.) Thank you.

  35. Two very pretty cards. I am getting more inspired with a one color flower and the rest left untouched as I go through the hop.
    Thanks for sharing

  36. Both cards are wonderful! I too think “A Beautiful Day” is one of my favorite floral stamps. Love the idea of the trio of the tree stamp.

  37. Oh Therese, your floral card is absolutely stunning! I’m desperate for those stamps, and you’ve made the yearning so strong! Beautiful work!

  38. Love the blue and gray of the first card. Beautiful color combination. Love the simplicity of the second card. Nice job!

  39. Hey Therese…I absolutely “love” that warm gray with the blue….so darn pretty! Thanks for sharing Therese.

  40. ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS cards Therese!!!
    LOVE your GORGEOUS colours and ELEGANT flowers, LOVE your BEAUTIFUL tree panels too!!!
    THANK YOU for sharing your INKY INSPIRATION and video, I really do enjoy WATCHING the layering stamps in action and to LISTEN as you CREATE, I learn SO MUCH 🙂

  41. Very, very nice. It is so much fun to watch the layering process. I liked the unusual use of gray. Very pretty, the peach trees too!

  42. Very different using the grays with the blues & minimal color!! That stamp set is awesome looking! I’m building up my layered stamps collection because I think they do an awesome job to make a beautiful card!!

  43. I have all of the ink sets except the grays. That will now change. I love the grays for the leaves to the flower colors show up more. Thanks for sharing that, I’m inspired.

  44. Great cards. I’m really partial to the first; those grays with just one blue flower is a beautiful combo. Thank you for taking the time to make a video. I really enjoy watching them and I learn a lot.

  45. Great cards Therese – love the masculine card with the prisma coloured boxes – cool. The flower is gorgeous – such a hard decision for me between that and the Peony Bouquet set – shame the budget wouldn’t stretch to both lol.

  46. I love both of your cards. The flower from the Beautiful Day stamp is gorgeous and the color combos of the new blue and grey ink are fabulous.

  47. Fabulous cards! I love the neutral colors with just a pop of blue color for the first card (and yes, I am partial to blue flowers). I also love tree cards (and have many tree stamps) — thanks for sharing your great ideas!

  48. Wow–loved both your cards. The b&w with that splash of color? Fabulous. And I love how you used the mini set. I never would’ve thought of putting 3 in a row. Thanks for your work!

  49. Beautiful cards, but my favorite is the first card the use of the grays and the blues makes your card stunning. Very inspiring.

  50. I absolutely love your style, I wish I could think of the proper name for it. It is just stunning. THANK YOU so much for the inspiration and new ideas. Great job.

  51. How beautiful! I love the color of blue in the one flower, what a great new color. The grays are lovely too. I actually thought you may have watercolored the flowers at first glance. I did not realize it was a layering set. TFS!

  52. What a unique card. I love the blues and greys on it. This floral set is a favorite of mine. It always looks beautiful.

  53. 2 lovely designs. I love the Beautiful Day set, too – never was making such a beautiful flower so easy, thanks to Altenew and their multi-step stamping!

    1. Hi Sue, Thanks so much for your visit. I’m not sure where you can get these stamps in Australia, Altenew stamps are sold at Scrapbook Boutique but sadly none are in stock just at this present moment, crossed fingers very soon and with this fab set would be great. I have bought these stamps direct from this company and they have fast postage to Australia, you can also order them from Simon Says Stamp and Ellen Hutson (both in the USA) and they have international postage and are both great to buy from. Hope this helps, Hugs Therese x

  54. Love the elegant combo of blue and grey. And thanks for the great video. I love Altenew. But their multi-step stamps are a bit intimidating! After watching your video, I think I will finally take a chance. Also loved the layout of the second card.

  55. Vintage flowers was my favorite stamp set until beautiful day. I love the blues and grays. Thanks and Happy Birthday, Altenew.

  56. Love your Beautiful Day stamped card the best. Like how you just colored the one flower. Altenew is the best!!

  57. Your cards are so beautiful! The flowers are absolutely gorgeous & the way you designed the tree card is wonderful! Thanks for the great video!

  58. Very elegant card – very soft yet the blue pops. I really liked the way you penciled in the background for your tree design.

  59. Beautiful card, I would of never thought of using grey for a flower, but it works quite well 🙂 thank you for the inspiration.

  60. The new blues and greys are just beautiful and this card shows them off to their best! Also, athe peachtrees are darling!

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
