Altenew September Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Welcome to another fun blog hop! The September Altenew products have just been released and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways. You should have arrived here from Kymona Tracey. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please visit Altenew Card Blog.

Here is the card that I made for today’s blog hop! A lovely holiday card using the Holiday Bow stamp set. I love that it’s one of the layering stamp sets, where you can get shading and depth on the poinsettias in no time!

This is my favorite from the release because of the poinsettias, the variation of leaves, the berries… you even get evergreen brunch layering stamps! It also comes with a bow, so can create lovely flower arrangements or wreaths.

I went with the Happy Holidays sentiment from the Festive Poinsettia stamp set. I embossed it with Antique Gold embossing powder to add touches of gold on my card. I love the fact that with this sentiment the card does not shout Christmas, it can be more versatile to give to others.

    Love the brightlycolored poinsettias! The evergreen branches and berries complement the gorgeous blooms! It has become trendy to use other colors st Christmas, but I still love red and dark green.

    You are a true artist in more ways than one. The art work is great but your presentation skills are excellent. I love to watch artists on YouTube, but some are hard to watch. Your videos are always so professional, your work area is neat, you move through the projects quickly, and you are a great instructor. To have all those elements in one person is amazing and very nice for the viewer. I have learned so much from watching all your videos I can’t thank you enough. You are really a gifted individual and I appreciate the fact you want to share your talents with perfect strangers. My favorite work is your art journals. I watch them over and over. God bless

    What a gorgeous card and fabulous stamp set. You make it look so simple and easy… I find your little suggestions like adding the red dots and gold drops really helpful, they made the card look complete. I need to try and remember that next time I think “something” is missing. Thanks for sharing Vicky, fab tutorial as always.

    I absolutely love this card and the latest Altenew release but what REALLY caught my eye was the instruction leaflet jam packed with ideas and the colours to use. Really useful for both newbies and experienced crafters alike.

    I agree with you on the Holiday Bow set being a favorite, I can’t wait to get my hands (and ink) on it and start playing lol. I think I could make all my Christmas cards just using this set alone, it really is so versatile with all it has included. Your card is beautiful and is definitely inspiration for me. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Vicky
    A really beautiful, elegantly designed card, especially when it comes to flowers. Definitely your forte when it comes flower design. Loved the red, gold & green touches which although traditional, somehow result in a fresh look. As always you are amazing, & I never tire of watching your creative process. Really brilliant!!
