Caught by Altenew Giveaway Winners
First up are the 4 winners of our #CaughtByAltenew monthly giveaway. Each crafter will receive a $15 gift certificate to the Altenew shop.
The card by Susan Bcards is exquisitely embossed, and it is paired with an equally elegant envelope. The intricate details of the Peony Sunshine 3D Embossing Folder shine through despite the cloudy background, adding a touch of charm to this ensemble.
These birthday cards made by Berina – Moxie Craftie explore the vibrant colors of the Inspiration Challenge color scheme, and the Floral Acanthus 3D embossing folder, along with the coordinating dies and stencil set, brings those colors to life with exquisite detail. Every card embodies a distinct charm that perfectly combines celebration and artistic expression.
Suzyplant created this enchanting slimline card that showcases the mesmerizing details of the Castle Garden Stamp Set. The intricate design comes to life with a burst of colors, meticulously applied using colored pencils.
Colourandsparkle decided to take a novel approach and use alcohol inks on vellum in place of stenciling. Then, carefully applied gold heat embossing to some ethereal flowers offering a creative way to use up scraps and add an additional layer of visual intrigue as they are poised elegantly against a background of randomly embossed white card strips.

AECP Member Projects
Wait! There's more. Next, we wanted to share the following beautiful projects by some of our talented Altenew Educator Certification Program (AECP) participants from this month.
Kriti has used heat embossing and watercolor to create a stunning card with a delicate appearance.
Anet, a beginner at water-coloring, found this class to be very informative and full of helpful advice. This course is perfect for those looking for a place to start with watercolors. The Delicate Garden Stamp & Die Set and Watercolor 36 Pan Set are used in this card to demonstrate a variety of techniques that produce gorgeously soft yet vivid pigmentation.
Liz used the color scheme from the September Inspiration Challenge as a study for this class. Starting with backgrounds instead of her usual focal point-first strategy turned out to be a fun and novel card design exercise.
Layering is the focus of Donna's first course, which fits her love of Altenew's layering capabilities for stamps and stencils perfectly. She skillfully illustrates the breathtaking depth made possible by using several layers of color with the Build-A-Flower: Stargazer set.
We hope these beautiful projects inspired you today. Want to get featured on our next Caught by Altenew post? Don't forget to post your projects or Altenew packages with the hashtags #Altenew, #AltenewColoring, and/or #AltenewHappyMail.
