Altenew: A Year In Review: Crafters’ Edition Blog Hop #2 + Giveaway

Hi! You must have arrived here from Helen Kalb's blog.

I hope you are enjoying the hop. This year has been wonderful creatively speaking! Here are some of my favorite Altenew projects!

Project #1:

A lovely card using the Bountiful Bouquet Stamp & Die set. This is a humongous 8" x 10½" stamp set which Altenew released as part of their 8th Anniversary celebrations. I combined it with the Detailed Web Cover Die. I stamped on a sheet of paper from the Wildflower 6 x 6 paper pack.

Project #2:

I used the gorgeous Peony Sunshine 3D Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Fresh Freesia Stamp set.

Project #3:

I love bookmarks and these were super easy to make using Botanical Bookmark die set, CYL Florescence Kit and the Build-a-Garden Magnificent Branch set.

Project #4:

I used a sheet of paper from the Wildflower 6 x 6 paper pack, the 3D folder from the CYL Garden Rose kit and black embossing powder.
