I can hardly believe it has been three years for Altenew! As we have just mentioned, we couldn't have made it this far without your support, so thank you!! and I hope we continue to grow together for many years to come. I would also like to thank our amazing leadership team who work tirelessly to keep the Altenew gears running in the background, and our designers who make spectacular projects giving us fresh inspiration on a daily basis. Special thanks to May for organizing this amazing 4-day long celebration!

In light of the celebration, I wanted to share a couple of projects that are a bit different than usual. Besides making cards, I also enjoy making framed wall art. I find them great for gifts (people always appreciate a handmade gift!), and they are also great for personalized home decoration.

The first one was made using the stamp sets Beautiful Day and Remember This. With a bit of masking, I was able to create a one-layer stamped image. This complements my office room where the prominent colors are Blue, red and brown.

The next one is a gift for a friend of mine who likes everything purple. My favorite color happens to be yellow, so I added a bit of that. However, it looks like I may have added too much yellow! I should probably redo this with more purple! :)

Peony Bouquet and Remember this

The sentiment was first printed out, then the die cut flowers and leaves were layered with foam tape. For this one, I used the stamp sets Peony Bouquet and Garden Treasure, and the inks used were Shades of Purple, Rose Petal, Summer Afternoon and Warm Gray.

I hope you enjoy hopping today! Make sure to check out the amazing prizes along the hop!

041017 anniversary bloghello jenWow, 3 years!  I still can't believe it.  I often think back to that first release…the anticipation, excitement, and of course the uncertainty that came with taking a risk and putting my artwork “out there.”  The funny thing is, that uncertainty comes back for every release!  “Will our customers like it?”  “Will it live up to our standards?”  “Is it innovative?”  These questions stir about in my brain as I design, and I think they push me to work harder.

DSC 0013 smallThe stress definitely pays off, when I get to see customers using our products.  Often times, I'll see you creatively use something in a way I never imagined!  Please keep sharing your projects, as your creativity is what really inspires me.  I am so glad you have all decided to join us in our journey, and I hope we can continue to be part of this community together for years to come.
