Altenew: A Year In Review Blog Hop 2017



Hellooooo everyone!
SO excited!
This event is close to my heart because last year this was the first time Altenew invited me to be one of the guests on the hop. 

You must be here from Laura's blog.
In case you randomly stopped by here today, I have a complete hop list at the end of this post for you to start from the beginning.

We are selecting our favourite Altenew cards that we made in 2017.
I have made SO many cards, it's going to be VERY hard to narrow it down.

Cards are in no particular order. I will also provide a link to the original post in case you want to find out the details.

It was super hard to narrow down my choices.

These cards are all simply stunning. I usually am not a fan of yellow but that first card is a marvel, It is so realistic looking.

Altenew makes elegant stamp sets & dies & what you've showcased here takes them to a level beyond what anybody could ask for!!! You have amazing talent for colouring & a great eye for layout. Thanks for sharing your cards. Wishing you a Happy New Year from the west coast of Canada.

MJ said...

Beautiful cards. All so different and so perfect for the sentiment used. Thank you for sharing and Happy Holiday.

Dee Earnshaw said...

OMG your cards are just out of this world gorgeous - they are so beautifully colored and designed - I am awed by your talents:)

Jean Chaney said...

I can see why you selected these. Each one is as beautiful as the next. You are so lucky to have those gorgeous Altenew products to work with. Hoping Santa is good to me this year!

Debra Rumpza said...

I simply adore your floral coloring... it's incredible I can look all day long! Thanks for sharing.

Karen H said...

Erum, your cards take my breath away, they are stunning. Your creative talent has really shown the fabulous design of these Altenew products. Thank you for sharing your ideas.

Debbie said...

Your cards are stunning. I wish I could stamp/watercolor like you do. You are a true artist.

ServiceDogMommy said...

Your work includes more detail than most. That's what sets your work apart from others. As a regular on the Altenew blog...I just about don't need to see your name attached. Almost always I can pick out your work...and that's a compliment! Your inclusion of incredible detail as well as added interest (such as stacking the card layers with dimension between them) add extra interest. The 'little' things are also never lost especially the leaves or foliage. You do beautiful work and it continues to amaze me. On a completely other note, I see on your blog you did a Saturated Canary challenge. That is how I got started with coloring images as I love her style. I'll never forget my early beginnings, learning to color with her images.
But amazing work with the cards you created. I still am in love with that pink iris! Can't wait to see what you create next!

Jeanne Beam said...

Beautiful cards. Altenew flowers are some of the most gorgeous stamps I’ve ever seen. Thanks for sharing...
