Altenew’s 3rd Anniversary Blog Hop Day 1 + Giveaway

by May Sukyong Park


Hello, and welcome to our 3rd-anniversary celebration and blog hop!

With each year that passes, we become more and more appreciative of our customers, fans, and friends.  We couldn’t be where we are without you!  Your support over the past three years has energized and inspired us, and everything that we do is done lovingly with you in mind.

As a small token of our appreciation, we have sent a gift to some of our valued customers.  Those of you who frequently support us or have been there since the beginning have received a custom mini stamp set with your name.  Please use this to adorn your projects so you can be proud of your handmade creations – #AltenewLove

Even if you did not receive a gift, we would like to celebrate with you by offering free or discounted shipping, and many opportunities to win prizes over the next few days!

*If you missed any of our anniversary blog hop posts, make sure to check them out for inspiration and an extra chance to win PRIZES!

  • Blog Hop Day 3: Card Design Team Shout-out
  • Blog Hop Day 4: Scrapbook Design Team Shout-out

I can hardly believe it has been three years for Altenew! As we have just mentioned, we couldn’t have made it this far without your support, so thank you!! and I hope we continue to grow together for many years to come. I would also like to thank our amazing leadership team who work tirelessly to keep the Altenew gears running in the background, and our designers who make spectacular projects giving us fresh inspiration on a daily basis. Special thanks to May for organizing this amazing 4-day long celebration!

In light of the celebration, I wanted to share a couple of projects that are a bit different than usual. Besides making cards, I also enjoy making framed wall art. I find them great for gifts (people always appreciate a handmade gift!), and they are also great for personalized home decoration.

The first one was made using the stamp sets Beautiful Day and Remember This. With a bit of masking, I was able to create a one-layer stamped image. This complements my office room where the prominent colors are Blue, red and brown.

The next one is a gift for a friend of mine who likes everything purple. My favorite color happens to be yellow, so I added a bit of that. However, it looks like I may have added too much yellow! I should probably redo this with more purple! :)

The sentiment was first printed out, then the die cut flowers and leaves were layered with foam tape. For this one, I used the stamp sets Peony Bouquet and Garden Treasure, and the inks used were Shades of Purple, Rose Petal, Summer Afternoon and Warm Gray.

I hope you enjoy hopping today! Make sure to check out the amazing prizes along the hop!

Wow, 3 years!  I still can’t believe it.  I often think back to that first release…the anticipation, excitement, and of course the uncertainty that came with taking a risk and putting my artwork “out there.”  The funny thing is, that uncertainty comes back for every release!  “Will our customers like it?”  “Will it live up to our standards?”  “Is it innovative?”  These questions stir about in my brain as I design, and I think they push me to work harder.

The stress definitely pays off, when I get to see customers using our products.  Often times, I’ll see you creatively use something in a way I never imagined!  Please keep sharing your projects, as your creativity is what really inspires me.  I am so glad you have all decided to join us in our journey, and I hope we can continue to be part of this community together for years to come.

Congrats! I will admit that I find the layering stamps intimidating, but I love the line art florals — just gorgeous. However, Jennifer McGuire just had a video showing how to layer with vellum and I am so excited! I will finally master layering!! lol Looking forward to many more years of Altenew stamps.
