Hello and thank you so much for stopping by! Designers and guest designers from Altenew are getting together to share our favorite projects from the year 2016. I’m sure you’ll find lots of creative inspiration! Be sure to pin images you like to save them for later!
2016 was a busy year for me and I am beyond grateful I had the chance to work with some of Altenew’s greatest stamp sets. I have lots of projects on my blog created using stamps, inks, dies and trims (oh yes, I adore their antique trims), you can see all of them by clicking on ALTENEW tag in my sidebar.
CARD #1 – FLORAL THANK YOU (+VIDEO)
My most favorite card from 2016 is the one I made to share more about my “Perfect Cardmaking Formula”. I always use this formula when I need to quickly create a card. The formula is very simple and includes pretty white cardstock + gold die cut + stamped flowers. Head over to the blog post to see more and watch a video tutorial.
CARD #2 – WATERCOLOR PAINTED FLOWERS
Painted flowers is a truly gorgeous and unique stamp set from Altenew. I’ve been wanting to use it without the “coordinating layers” and finally watercolored it on its own. See more of this card on my blog by clicking here. Oh and this card uses the formula I share above.
CARD #3 – WEDDING FLORAL (+VIDEO)
Another project I wanted to mention here is a card I made to share more about how I select colors for my projects. I used to struggle with color, but not any more! See more and watch video tutorial here on my blog.
CARD #4 – HELLO I LOVE YOU (+VIDEO)
And finally last, but not least is the card I made for February Inspiration Challenge. I used a bold Aqua + Gold color combo and pale watercolor. See more by clicking here.
