I am joining the Altenew family to celebrate Altenew's 6th Anniversary Blog Hop. Today is day 2 of this celebration. Instead of canceling this special celebrations, Altenew decided to use this blog hop to spread joy and encourage others to give back/ be there for one another during these challenging times. Subsequently, Altenew has donated 6K to relief organizations that are working to help vulnerable populations. Watch this short video to learn more (you can find me at 0:27 😀)
Here is the collage of me and my favorite projects in the last year.
Here is the collage of me and my favorite projects in the last year.
If you just arrived from the blog of Terri Koszler, you are in the right place.
You can find the master list and info over Altenew Card Blo.
Here is my celebratory birthday card.
I am using my most recent favorites-Line Art Stamp/Die Bundle and Sunburst Cover Die.
First of all, let's talk about that simple background. With the Sunburst Cover Die, you have these beautiful textured pattern instantly once you ran it through the die cut machine.
Next, I took out my favorite inks and stamped stamping with various shade of red/pink and minty green. I then die cut the pieces and arranged them all over the card stock.
To me, this is most satisfying part of creating a design, that is, you get to use up all the pieces that you lovingly stamped. I am pleasantly surprised that my card has nearly the same color combo with the blog hop banner! The sentiment from Ornamental Bliss has that clean and modern vibe. Perfect with this design.
