Altenew: A Year in Review Blog Hop & Giveaway!

I am thrilled to be hopping along today with Altenew to celebrate 2019 and you should have arrived here from AMBER’s amazing Blog.

I have some of my faves for 2019 to share so I’d better get started!

On my first card I used the Watercolor Brush Markers but that wasn’t enough…   I also had to break out the Watercolor Palette to colour these gorgeous flowers from the Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set.  The sentiment is from the Sincere Greetings Stamp Set.  You can see the video HERE.

My second card uses the Peaceful Reverie Stamp Set and this time I stamped the image and added shading with some pencils.  I added a sentiment from the Fancy Greeting Stamp Set and you can see the video for this card HERE.

Next it’s time for some more watercolouring and this time I used the Weekend Doodles Stamp Set.  And a Mega Friend die cut sentiment, I had such fun with these large sentiments this year!  You can check out the video HERE.

Finally, I have a fun card which features the Honeycomb Stencil and one of the ice creams from the Summer Swirl Stamp Set.  And the sentiment this time is another of my new faves…   the Tall Alpha Dies.  I have a video for this card too and you can see it HERE.
