Altenew A Year In Review: Crafters' Edition Blog Hop #2 and Giveaway!

Today I am part of the Altenew A Year in Review Blog Hop, part 2. You should have hopped here from the supremely talented Therese Calvird at Lost in Paper - if not, please start at the first stop on the hop which is the Altenew blog.

These are my four favorites for 2022:

The strawberry card was made for the Altenew Educator's Clean and Simple blog hop back in June stamping some juicy fruits from the Simple Fruit set. I made cards with oranges and kiwis too! But since strawberries are my favorite I made two versions; pinkish and reddish - the Altenew Crisp Inks have so many color variations which makes it very easy.

Do you prefer the pinkish berries above?
Or the reddish berries below?

For detailed stamping instructions for all my fruity cards, please check out my blog post Clean and Simple hop.

My second favorite from 2022 is from the Educator's Secret recipe hop from October and my tip was to stamp a wreath. All three cards below were stamped with small images from the Majestic Bouquet stamp set. For detailed instructions and more photos, go to the Secret Recipe post.

Card number 3 is  made with an Altenew stencil set that I love so much - Berried Cotoneaster. This stencil looks fantastic in any color scheme, below are just two.

I do love the yellow one above but the blue and green below is my favorite! To see a third, red version check out the November Release post.

And that brings us to the fourth favorite which is also from the November Simply Scientific release:
I just think these Chemistry Vases are the best!

The simple test tube card above is cool but I love the Mad Scientist look below! See all my cards from the November release here.

And here is a third card featuring these chemistry vases from my Instagram account - a rainbow Ambridge Rose and a punny sentiment - We've got chemistry. Makes me smile and I hope it does you as well!
