Altenew Year in Review Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

Hi, crafty friends. Today I’m taking a look back at my favorite Altenew projects from this year as part as a fun blog hop…

Before I share past projects, I wanted to share a new project…

THIS Crafty Friends Stamp Set is my favorite stamp set of the year. I love all the messages because they are perfect to send to crafty friends, which is the majority of people I send cards to. It’s also perfect sentiments to add to the flap of the envelopes, which I did for my project. 
I stamped the splatter image from THIS stamp set using a rainbow of Distress Ink. I added a puddle of water to the middle of each image using THIS sprayer to “bleach” some of the color. 
I stamped the sentiment and envelope from the crafty friends set and framed it using THIS die. I adhered the panel to a scalloped border note card. I also stamped an image and sentiment on the inside using the same stamp sets to tie it all together…

Here are my other three favorite Altenew projects for 2017…

    Fantastic ideas.
    I love the baby card with the
