Altenew Craft Your Life Project Kit: Vintage Tapestry Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome friends! I’m excited to join Altenew in a blog hop celebrating their latest Craft Your Life Project Kit Vintage Tapestry.

If you are not familiar with the Altenew kits, they are plump full of amazing products to create beautiful cards including stamps, stencils and an embossing folder.

I have two cards I want to share with you today. Both of these cards have quite a different color palette then you are probably used to seeing from me.

Each card has the embossing folder in the background to add subtle interest.

The ink sets I’m using today are Warm Gray and Coffee Break. Both of these give the flowers a very vintage feel.

Each card is completed with a sentiment that I heat embossed in white embossing powder onto black cardstock.


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $25 gift certificate to 8 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each desgner’s blog post on the blog hop by 12/18/21 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 10 random winners from the comments left on each stop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners page on 12/20/21.


If you arrived from Tenia Nelson’s blog, you are in the right spot.

Your next stop in the hop will be Virginia Lu.

If you get lost along the way, you can always head back to the Altenew blog to start at the beginning.
