Altenew: A Year In Review Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome everyone! I’m thrilled to be joining in the Altenew A Year In Review Blog Hop. I had so much fun creating Altenew this year and I’m sharing my top 4 favorites of the year.

If you are familiar with my blog, then it’s no secret I love to hot foil and ink blend. My first card I picked is using the Eucalyptus Wreath Stencil and Hot Foil Plate. You can read more about this card HERE.

Next, I have this gorgeous image from the In The Woodland Stamp and Stencil set. You can read more about this card HERE.

I could never leave out this large image from the Gilded Rose Hot Foil Plate and Stencil. You can read more about this card HERE. Of course it also features one of my favorite dies which is the Fancy For You.

This next card features the Build A Flower Honeysuckle. I love the unique design and how it also had some buds on it. You can read more about this card HERE.

I’ve made tons of cards throughout 2021 featuring Altenew that you can check out by clicking in CATEGORIES on the side bar of my blog and selecting Altenew.


Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners and a $15 gift certificate to 4 lucky winners.

  1. Beautiful cards

  2. I’ve always loved your work. The blending on the eucalyptus is masterfully done!

  3. Dear Mindy – My fave of these four is the eucalyptus with the rainbow colors blended. The honeysuckle is a close second. I like all of them, though.

    I made an exception to visit your site along with Daniel Diaz’s and Seeka’s. Altenew blog hops generally kill me — way too long. How can they expect people to visit about 40 crafters’ sites? Too much…….. I guess I could split it up into several days but I prefer to do blog hops in one to two sittings (about 15 at a time is as many as I can do).

    Beautiful work as always!

  14. Oh Mindy — I have a love/hate relationship with these Altenew blogs. First I can’t (and don’t) miss any when they first are posted, so I see all the wonderful products and creations (like yours). And I want to buy it all so I can try to create it all! Then this magical Year in Review comes out and I punish (or treat) myself to everything again. And I want to buy everything I missed the first time! But honestly, I thank you because it is really a pleasure!!!

  15. Wow!!! Stunning cards!!! Thanks for all the inspiration this year!!!
