Altenew 7th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway (over $1,400 in Total Prizes)

 


Hello!

You must be here from the most amazing Amanda Baldwin's blog. She has the biggest heart! If you don't follow her on Instagram, I urge you to do! She will leave you the loveliest comments!


It's such a joy working for a company you absolutely adore! And I truly love working for Altenew.

I started as a card design team member in 2017 and now I am part of the video team plus also play a huge role as a coordinator for the Altenew Educators Certification Program (AECP) since December 2018.



My card was inspired by the packaging of one of the items that Altenew will be launching soon. It would have been here but due to the production delay, we will introduce it next month. 

I stamped the flowers and leaves using the layering stamps. SHOCKER! But hey?! I did watercolor the background!
