Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop + Giveaway + Coupon codes

Crafty Friends blog hop is here! A fun event full of inspiration by amazing designers and lots of giveaways along the way! So hop along with us!

Today we are celebrating this hobby and the friends we made thought it! If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning visit the Altenew Card Blog

I can’t even explain how this hobby changed my life. It has become a full time job for me and I own it to all my crafty friends out there! I can’t even explain how thankful I am for all of you who keep coming to see my projects and for leaving me lovely comments. But I have some special friends I made through this hobby too. Friends we don’t even live close. Friends we never ever crafted together.  We are miles and miles away but sharing the same passion brings us so close. We chat, we inspire and we motivate each other.

So here is a card to all of you!

altenew anemone

For my card I used the Altenew Build a Flower – Anemone ( SSS | ALTN | ELH ) stamp set. I stamped the flower and the leaves a few times to have enough for a full bouquet of flowers. I did no coloring, layering stamps did the job for me. Love that!

A touch of gold always gives some elegance to cards. So I used a gold border and embossed details at the center of my flowers. I used the Altenew ANTIQUE GOLD Crisp Embossing Powder ( SSS | ELH | ALTN ) for that. I love this embossing powder because it gives a beautiful satin finish and it has no glitter inside. Such a gorgeous look.

For the sentiment I used the Altenew CRAFTY FRIENDS Clear Stamp Set ( SSS | SBC | ALTN | ELH ). It’s packed with phrases perfect to use on cards you send to crafty friends. You need to check this set out, great motivational phrases included as well as hilarious ones too!
