thanks for all the inspiration that you have given with your lovely stamps and inks

Jenny colacicco December 28, 2016 - 4:42 PM

These are all gorgeous cards but I think the whimsical flowers is one of my favourites. Altenew releases are usually the best part of a week and your designs continue to be fresh and exciting. I particularly love your more masculine sets – so so versatile . What a wonderful idea to do this blog hop – the designs are stunning. Happy 2017 to J and T and all the Altenew team!!

Toni C December 28, 2016 - 4:52 PM

This is a great idea for a blog hop! I always plan to use the inspiration I see on various blogs but then you can easily forget (even if you have pinned an image) – so to see them all again is great.

Debbie A. December 28, 2016 - 4:57 PM

Thanks so much for this great blog hop and the free shipping deal! I got money for Christmas and just ordered the Peony Bouquet bundle! I’m so excited because I’ve wanted this set for a long time since I saw Jennifer McGuire use it. Thanks again!

Beautiful designs and cards, Altenew is one of my favorite stamp companies. I love all the multistep floral sets, that’s what “hooked” me. In 2016 I added some Altenew inks and non floral sets to my growing stash, awesome!

Janet Ingraham December 28, 2016 - 6:59 PM

The Altenew floral stamps with multiple layers create lovely images, and using the Altenew sets of ink cubes make choosing colors easy! Thanks for sharing your beautiful projects!
