Altenew: A Year in Review: Crafters’ Edition Blog Hop #2 & Giveaway!

Would you like to see which cards I chose as my favourite cards from Altenew this year? And, I want to know if you agree with me!

I am thrilled to be hopping along today with Altenew to celebrate 2022 and you should have arrived here from PENNY’s amazing Blog.

I have some of my faves for 2022 to share so I’d better get started!

So let’s start with a little bit of Magic… the Magic Burst Hot Plate that is. I added a beautiful Dazzling Dahlia bloom and butterfly. You can see the full post HERE and also watch the video to see how I made this card right HERE.

My second card had many reqests to share how I made this. So I did make a video sharing a similar process which you can see HERE. But, to see this card and the full list of supplies that I used head to this post HERE. ps. This Craft-A-Flower: Open Peony was one of my favourite releases this year!

Next it’s time for a very quick but pretty design. This card was made using a simple wash of Artists’ Watercolors and the Rose Bellevue 3D Embossing Folder. I also had many requests to see how this was made… so keep an eye out for a video I’ll be sharing very soon! But the full details for this card can be found HERE.

Finally, I have a fun card using the FABULOUS new Artists’ Gouache Watercolors from Altenew. You can see this card, and other ‘striped’ but very different version at the blog post HERE. I made the cake by painting the stripes freehand, but added the bloom from the Amazing You Stamp Set.

Over $500 in total prizes! Altenew is giving away a $100 gift card to 1 lucky winner, 3 $50 gift cards, and 27 $10 gift cards. Winners will be chosen from both blog hop #1 and blog hop #2. Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog HERE by 12/28/2022 for a chance to win.

  1. Therese, I don’t know how you chose your favorite four – ALL of your cards are my favorites! Love that rose so very much!
    Thanks for sharing all you do, and inspiring us all year, too! Merry Christmas, dear friend!

  2. Oh my! LOVE the purple die cut flower -and- the water colored rose embossing folder cards!
    I really enjoyed learning new ways of using my crafty stuff- foiling is my new addiction 🙂
    I hope you have a lovely Christmas, despite having to work. It could be worse for you, you could be going to work in cold and snowy Minnesota. Today is -9F/-23C, but feels like -29F/-34C with the windchill! Have a TERRIFIC New Year!

  3. Your cards are beautiful! I love the peony and the rose! I’m looking forward to seeing your video on how the rose card was created!

  4. I’ve loved all your Altenew cards this last year, too many to chose a favourite. Thank you for inspiring us and for your lovely ideas.

  5. Dear Therese, I always love seeing your art. Its so inspiring, seeing what can be done with the materials I have, or will have sometime. The purple Open Peony is absolutely gorgeous! No wonder you have requests for your instructions. But the Rose Bellevue 3D embossed card looks as if it is an actual photograph! Your use of the watercolor wash is incredible.
    Spectacular! Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! 💜🎄💜
