Favorite Altenew Cards of 2018

It's time for Altenew's Year in Review Blog Hop

I adore Altenew and here are my fav cards I made this year featuring Altenew products:

First up a birthday card I made for my dad that features Parrot Paradise (the bird is colored with color pencils):

Next up a birthday card I made for a friend featuring Build-A-Flower: Chrysanthemum and Fabulous Floral:

And finally this card that I made for Altenew Academy's watercolor class (this card was posted here).

I look forward to seeing what Altenew brings in 2019 to further our creativity! Happy New Year! #AltenewBest2018

2018 Christmas Cards

Hello and welcome! Today I'm just posting pics of my 2018 christmas cards - several of these were inspired by my favorite bloggers! Please enjoy and Happy Holidays!

SSS Christmas Card Challenge!

I have a card today for the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Card Challenge!

Here is my card! I will also have another post with all my christmas cards I made this year!

This card uses a technique the great Jennifer McGuire had on her blog: alcohol ink (on watercolor paper) with emboss resist. You can find it here. I used a snowflake stencil for my embossed image. I love how this came out! 

Thanks for visiting!
