Altenew: A Year in Review Blog Hop & Giveaway!

I am thrilled to be hopping along today with Altenew to celebrate 2021 and you should have arrived here from TERI’s amazing Blog.

I have some of my faves for 2021 to share so I’d better get started!

On my first card I used the Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup… but, it was in a negative way!  I kept the sentiment simple. It was from the Delicate Flower Bed Stamp Set and die cut with the Featured Sentiments die set. You can see the video HERE.

My second card uses the Fresh Bloom Stamp Set. This time, I had some fun with the Modern Hello Stamp Set and you can see the video which has 3 CARDS right HERE.

Next it’s time for some pencil colouring and this time I used the Craft Your Life Project Kit: Elegant Motifs.  You can check out the video which has a LOT of pencil colouring tips right HERE.

Finally, I have a fun card which features a new product to Altenew this year which is Hot Foil Plates. This beauty is the Gilded Rose and it has matching layering stencils…. I added a simple sentiment from the Sparkle Bright Stamp Set.

  3. Therese, it’s hard to choose. All your cards are gorgeous & stunning. I watch your video’s over several times just to refresh my mind. I love to watch you color or paint now I will add foiling as I have had my machine a year or so and I need to use it. I did email you Therese from my yahoo site wishing you a merry Christmas I do hope you receive my message darling. Now I wish you and your hubby a wonderful New Year in 2022 as Australia is the first to celebrate California we are always last. Have a safe and Happy New Year. I’m sure like everyone in the world we all pray 🙏 for an end to this virus. 🙏🙏❤️🥂🍾
