Altenew Educator's Love and Friendship Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Greetings Crafty Friends. I am so very excited to be participating in this Altenew Educator's Blog Hop.  We are celebrating love and friendship. The hop featuring some very talented individuals begins HERE.  You should have arrived from Irina Fonina's blog.


Here are the 5 cards I will be presenting.  Grab a cuppa, sit back, relax and enjoy the tour including videos!



The first card is a colorful rendition of Wallpaper Flowers, coupled with the Mandela Die and embossed Canopy Leaf sets. I love the background texture created by dry embossing the Mandela Die.



I cover the process in the video below:


I also used gold embossing and gold glitter paper to create the next card.





Here is another twist on the same design.



The process for these are covered in the video below:



I used the Wallpaper Flower stamp with the Mandela Die again. This time I cut the Mandela die from Cougar cardstock, water-colored the background and layered the flowers.



My final card is kind of a vintage card.  I used a dictionary page with the word LOVE, and layered the Forever and Always stamp embossed and water colored.



I really enjoyed my journey through the Altenew Educator Program!  As a result of the program, I learned new skills, made new friends and have been able to share my creative endeavors by teaching classes at a local shop.  I highly encourage you to check it out!  Know that there are many educators who are happy to support you and encourage you along your journey. Here is the AECP link where you can learn more about the program.
