Projects

To celebrate the amazing year of 2019, I’m sharing my most favorite projects that I created in the course of the year with products from Altenew. I’m hoping you’ll enjoy looking back at 2019 with me. It was hard for me to pick out the top 4 since I created so many Altenew projects this year.

Garden Picks 3D Die

The first card in my top is this one here that features the gorgeous Altenew Garden Picks 3D Die set. This card I made at the beginning of the year and it is definitely one of my favorites. If you want to know more details of a particular card, just click HERE to go to the original post.

Baroque Motifs Stamp & Die Bundle | Beautiful Peony Stamp & Die Bundle.

The second card from my top was made by using Baroque Motifs Stamp Set , Baroque Motifs Die Set, Beautiful Peony Stamp Set and  Beautiful Peony Die Set. I made a square card (5 1/2 * 5 1/2)  using a mix of different elements from these sets. All the images are raised with foam tape to accentuate the volume.

Wallpaper Art Stamp Set | Beautiful Peony Stamp Set

You know, I’m a big fan of dot coloring. For my next card I used Wallpaper Art Stamp Set from Altenew March release. I used masking technique. I colored the images with Kuretake Zig Art & Graphic Twin markers using my dot coloring technique.

And the last of my top four for this year had all the chances to make the list. It features one of my favorites techniques – watercoloring. I combined flowers from Wallpaper Art Stamp Set and Beautiful Peony Stamp Set and watercolored the bouquet. I have a video of my process on my IGTV.

Like the background blending on that first card. The raised card is wonderful as well. The resist video was really helpful to understand the technique.

I am really enjoying this look “back at 2019”. I am learning more about my favorite artists and gaining a new appreciation of some artists I hadn’t seen too much of yet. When there are a number of cards shown together that were made at different times, I can see an artist’s characteristics more easily. Your beautiful cards have a bold and rich color palette that speaks the word “joy”. I imagine you being extremely happy as you create these gorgeous cards. But then, what do I know – I can’t even draw a straight line!

I always love your cards because they are unique. I love the mix of colors you use, the “dot” art technique that you have perfected, the various techniques that you use. Each card is so different and so pleasing.
