Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi everyone! 
  Today with Altenew we are celebrate our unique community.  Every day I meet fantastic and talented people, which inspires me so much.
  
  I start my cardmaking life few years ago, until that time I was passionate mixed - media artist and scrapbooker, can you believe? :) But I still love make albums and from time to time I take out box with paints :) 

  I can still picture that day when I turned out to cardmaker )) I had saw amazing layered stamps by Altenew (Vintage roses set:)) on my friend's project. From that day I could neither eat nor drink I started making cards)) So I can be sure that Sveta and Altenew are my "cardmaker creators"))) 

 For today I prepared a card with my other favorite stamps from Altenew. I colored with Copic markers beautiful flowers from Sketchy Floral Stamp Set, then I stamped and cuted out a biggest frame from the Framed Stamp stamp Set and added colorful sentiment from Crafty Friends Stamp set.





Also I putted a heart with second part of sentiment inside of the card.


Smallest heart I cut out from vellum and biggest from white cardstock using Halftone Hearts Die Set.

    1. I thought about this carefully, and I'd have to say my mother was my biggest inspiration. She was my first example of craftiness. She enjoyed sewing, crocheting, cooking, letter writing, and much more. Everything had her unique style and creativity. I'm sure I got my love for creating from her. Nice to think of that again.

  164. The person who inspired me the most in cardmaking was a lady named Karen who was a teacher at my local stamp store. I was just starting out in this craft and I took some of her classes and was hooked. She was a watercolour artist and the way she was able to bring the images to life was fascinating! Today I follow many artists online including Altenew's family of creators.
