by May Sukyong Park

Good morning and welcome to Day 3 of our 5th-anniversary blog hop.

*If you missed the other anniversary blog hop posts, make sure to check them out for more inspiration and an extra chance to win awesome PRIZES!

Before we go into the blog hop details and prizes, we would like to give a BIG shout-out to our fantastic Card Design Team for their creative contributions, not only on behalf of Altenew but to the entire paper crafting community.

There is no doubt that Altenew wouldn’t have come this far without the help of our extremely talented designers who showcase our products each month. We’ll never be able to thank them enough for all they’ve done for Altenew.

In honor of our anniversary celebration, we have asked each of our design team members to share four of their favorite Altenew cards with you. They are also sharing what they like the most about being on the Altenew Card Design Team and/or what they like the most about our products.May Sukyong Park (Joined in March 2015)

“I’m beyond honored to be part of this amazing team with my kind, supportive, and talented teamies. Since I started playing with Altenew’s layering stamps back in 2015, I was surprised to see myself creating realistic and beautifully layered flowers for my cards easily and effortlessly. I’m so thankful that Altenew has inspired me to go outside of my comfort zone and improve my crafting skills with their most elegant and versatile designs!”

“I joined the Altenew team from the beginning and it's been an amazing journey! I love seeing how this company has evolved over the years and I am still beyond thrilled and deeply honored that I can be a part of it. I’m very grateful for all the opportunities and experiences that this crafting journey has provided me and I hope I can inspire others to have fun while crafting with Altenew products.”

Sveta Fotinia (Joined in October 2015)

“I'm blessed to be a part of the Altenew family for 3+ years and I enjoyed every single day of it! Why? It's very simple – Altenew has some very important fundaments: hard work, talent, and professionalism. When I joined the team, Altenew produced only stamps and dies and now it has more cool products that I can't even imagine. They bring endless possibilities and inspiration to me and to so many crafters. Keep growing beloved Altenew!”

Therese Calvird (Joined in October 2015)

“Altenew is the most wonderful company and what I really love about them is that they continue to strive to be the best in the business and it is evident in everything they do. For example, at the moment my new favorite product is the Mask Stencil and I am pretty sure that I have been using them on every card that I create! Congratulations Altenew and may the next year be just as incredible!”

Svitlana Shayevich (Joined in October 2015)

“I'm very lucky to be with Altenew for more than 3 years now. All that time has been filled with joy and tons of inspiration that comes from the amazing products. My favorites are of course floral images, especially the realistic ones. One of my favorites is an oldie but definitely goodie – To the Moon Stamp Set. I also love their dies, stencils, ink sprays, watercolors, markers… well basically everything Altenew carries. I'm blessed to be a part of this team of extremely talented, kind and supportive people.”  

Lydia Evans (Joined in November 2015)

When Tasnim asked me to join the team, it was a dream come true! What I love most about Altenew products is everyone that can stamp one image over another will get absolutely amazing results – it seriously does level the playing field when it comes to stamping! One of my favorites has to be Watercolor Wonders – it's one of the first sets I purchased and I still reach for it again and again. I still can’t believe that I get to play with gorgeous Altenew products daily. It truly is an honor to be part of this amazing team.”

Virginia Lu (Joined in January 2017)

“As a long-time stamper, I can say that there has never been so many stamping brands and styles to choose from as today. When Altenew came into the stamping world in 2014, it proved to be a “game-changer”! Altenew is all about classy, timeless, sophisticated, and trendy design! I have been blessed to be on the Altenew Card Design Team since January 2017. Altenew never ceases to amaze and challenge me creatively! Thank you so much, Altenew, for making stamping fun!”

Erum Tasneem (Joined in January 2017)

“Another year, another testimonial. My love for Altenew has only grown more in leaps and bounds. I feel incredibly honored to be part of this amazing team. To witness each month the growth in designs and the incredible new products is a dream come true. This is my dream job and I am very thankful to Altenew for having me. Here's to another year! Happy Anniversary, Altenew!”

Norine Borys (Joined in July 2018)

“I often say that being on the Altenew Card Design Team is a match made in heaven. My favorite thing to create is watercolor floral cards, and every month Altenew continues to provide me with exciting new designs and products to create with. They never let me down! I joined the team in July 2018 and, in less than a year, I've been able to use so many amazing new products like watercolor paints, watercolor pens, inks, and alcohol markers. I can't imagine what the next year might bring!”

Laurie Willison (Joined in February 2019)

“I have only been on the Altenew team for just a short time as I became a Design Team member in February 2019, but it has been so much fun being a guest and hopping along with the team for the past year. Altenew's stamps and dies are so inspirational and work so well with my clean and simple style. I think one of my favorite products from Altenew is their ink. The colors are amazing and layer so beautifully! Happy 5th Anniversary to Altenew!”
