What better way to celebrate the end of 2016 than hopping along with the faves from the Altenew team! You should have arrived here from Laura Jane’s wonderful blog (and if you missed the beginning you can always start right here at Altenew). I’d better get on with the photos now, because there is heaps to share today, hope you like them!
Starting with this ‘colouring book’ style card using Persian Motifs stamp set. Click here for the video.
This beautiful flower is from Majestic Bloom and I really struggled with this card, but despite that, love how the colours turned out.
You can find the video here.
I love me a challenge of a masculine card and the Sohcahtoa set is the perfect choice for a fun graphic masculine design!
You can find the video here.
Aren’t these Spring Daisy flowers beautiful in bright (non daisy like) colours!
I decided to play with my new Zig watercolours when I saw this Adore You flower set released. I don’t have a video of this specific card to share, but did recreate it by request.
One of my most favourite sprigs of flowers from Altenew and it’s called Best Mom, and don’t fret there is a matching die so no fussy cutting required lol.
You can find the video here.
I know it’s been ‘massive’, but I hope you have enjoyed these cards, lots of video links too just in case you missed them.

I love them all but think my very favorite is the daisies. Love the colors you selected. Beautiful job.
ahhhh… I remember them well … and still love each and every little card your creative heart touches, Therese! Happy New Year … would LOve to win your card!!!
It must be hard to pick a favorite, Therese. They’re all so lovely. I’m torn between the colorful daisies and the Adore You flowers.
I so look forward to your cards and videos for Altenew! You have inspired me all year, and now again in retrospect. Thanks for that! I think my favorite today is the coloring book Persian Motifs. Simple and beautiful!
Therese, your cards are gorgeous! I love the variety yiu shared!
You’ve designed incredibly gorgeous cards this year; how wonderful to see some of your favorites reviewed. The Hello, especially, catches my eye! Spending time at your blog has been a highlight for me in 2016; looking forward to more visits and inspiration in 2017. Receiving a card from you would be marvelous!
Beautiful cards .. Love the videos!!
I really love all of the flower stamps, but my favourite is Beautiful Day!
Oldies but Goldies! Loved for all time.
Love all your cards but it is nice to see cards that are simple and will work for a masculine card. I love that triangle stamp set there is so much you can do with it! Thanks for sharing!
always enjoy seeing your gorgeous cards Therese!
I am likening the geometric stamp set more and more. I love how you used it!
Your cards are beautiful!!! Love them all and Altenew:)
I love these! Will have to try! Thanks for the ideas!
Beautiful cards and colors.
I especially love the Adore Me stamps. Makes for beautiful card.
Lovely colours and vibrancy – I love the colour on the Persian Motifs…..
My fav is the sweet pink Adore You card
I really enjoyed these cards. My favorite is the spring daisies card
Your style is amazing. I love the masculine card!!

These are all stunning, but my favourite is the one you did with the Adore You set. So delicate and pretty.
Therese, your cards are all so lovely, oh my goodness, how could they be anything other? So beautiful!
Inspirational! Would be challenging to choose a favorite. Would love to win one of your cards. Happy New Year.
Such a fabulous bunch of flower cards (pun intended lol). They are all beautiful in their own right, but your Adore You/Zig card is by far my favourite here. In addition, it made me realise I really should be giving my Zigs some love. Thanks for the tip about the mixed media paper. I think I might actually be able to get this in my area (Crete, Greece), while I have to get the Bristol from overseas.
I love your work and immensely enjoy watching your cards come to life in all of your videos.
Very beautiful cards! Your work is gorgeous!
Sending lots Be & hugs is my favourite but they are all gorgeous!
Stunning cards. Happy New Year.
I visit your blog almost daily . It’s one of my faves. I remember the peony and smile cards when you first created them. And got the peony set because of you. The sochatoa set will be on my next order. Have wanted it for some time. Thanks for all the inspiration. Happy new year.
I am in awe of your coloring. From soft and sweet to bold and beautiful, they are all just gorgeous. My favorite: the orange and pink! It’s not a color combo I naturally lean toward, so I frequently forget just how stunning it can be. Thanks for these lovely reminders.
Ahhh – those majestic blooms paired with wooden cardstock. Love that card so much. A real treat to see all your creations lined up here. Happy 2017!
Theresa I love your cards and videos. Always look onward to watching them. I actually bought the Daisy set because of the card you showed today! Please keep up the good work.
Sending Love and Hugs is my favorite card but they are all spectacular! I love how simple you keep your cards yet they shine like the stars they are!!! TFS!
You’ve created so many wonderful Altenew cards in 2016, Therese, and I can’t wait to see the new ones you will create in 2017! Best wishes.

These are all great, but I especially like the masculine card. I love the colors and the design — so clean and lovely!
Wonderful cards, every one! My favorite would be the Just Saying card made with the Best Mom set. I love the clean simplicity & gorgeous flowers on it. Of course, all the others are gorgeous also. I’m just drawn to that one the most!

I enjoyed seeing your cards this morning. They are lovely.
Love how you colored the flowers and the graphic design of the balloon card.
Your cards are so beautiful and cheerful! Love them!!
I just discovered Altenew stamps this year and I am in love with them. I like how the layering stamps look so real. The amount of white space on your cards really makes the colors pop. I’m going to resist the urge to use background stamps and leave more white space.
You are so talented, Therese! You’ve inspired me to try the spotlighting technique that you used on your Persian Motif card!
So much pretty in one post. Beautiful colouring!
The Persian motif set is also one of my favorites. Love your coloring of the daisies.
So very beautiful, each and every one. i love your daisy card.

Love how the first one looks like a colorized black and white movie. Not all colorized but colorized all the same. I love this technique. A few other people did this and I am amazed at how great it looks.
The birthday card is a lot of fun. My nephew would have liked that. I just made him a birthday card. He likes to eat so I used my spaghetti paper on him.
My favorite is the daisy’s. They are so colorful just like in real life. Everything is so colorful which is my favorite way to make a card. I love them all! Great job! I hope I get to win something!
