Good morning, and welcome to the Day 3 of our 3rd anniversary celebration.

- Blog Hop Day 1: Hello from Tasnim and Jen
- Blog Hop Day 2: Altenew Infographic (2014 – 2017)
- Blog Hop Day 4: Scrapbook Design Team Shout-out
Before we go into the hop details and prizes, we would like to give a BIG shout out to our fantastic Card Design Team for their contributions to creativity, not only on behalf of Altenew but to the entire papercrafting community.
There is no doubt that Altenew couldn’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 most about being on the Altenew Card Design Team, or what they thought when they first heard about Altenew, or what they like most about our products.

“It's been over two years since I joined the Altenew Design Team. I still feel incredibly honored to be working with sweet, supportive, talented designers on the design team. I've never said this before in public but I've also worked as the Marketing Director and the Design Team Coordinator for Altenew since May 2015. I'm so thankful for all of the beautiful experiences/opportunities I've had at Altenew. Kudos to Tasnim and Jen for running this fantastic company with the most amazing products which I truly enjoy playing with. Happy anniversary!”

I wish you much more success in the years ahead!

Altenew is incredible! It’s one of those companies that always seems to be a step ahead and everything they create is so beautiful and well thought-out! After every release I can truly see how amazing the products and the Design Team are, I am always inspired to improve my skills and push some boundaries and I love that a company and team can do that for me and us. I want to say Happy Anniversary and Thank You so much to all the wonderful Altenew team that makes this possible!

From the very first release until now Altenew has been impressing me with beautiful and unique designs. In only three years this company grew to a significant level and now carries many wonderful supplies. Which I love all. But my biggest love, of course, is floral and realistic stamps. I'm very blessed and honored to be a part of Altenew Design Team, the group of extremely talented, supportive and kind people. Incredible designs and inspiring DT make it a pleasure to work with Altenew.

Altenew took my heart with flower designs stamps, especially with Persian Motifs and It’s my favorite stamp set ever till this day. When the first design team of Altenew was announced, I became the biggest fan of all the talented ladies there and I found my dream. And as all true dreams it came true so suddenly and unexpected so I’ve never been happier then on a day when I got a letter of invitation from Tasnim (please don’t tell about it to my hubby, he thought that the wedding day was the one. ;)

“I joined this amazing team in November 2015. When Tasnim asked me to join the team it was a dream come true! I was and still am a huge Altenew fan-girl. What I love about Altenew products most is everyone that can stamp one image over another will get absolutely amazing results. 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 and I thank you so much Tasnim and Jen for welcoming me into the Altenew family.”
“3 years! Wow!! Above all, I applaud the Altenew for your love and passion for the craft!! I remember when I first saw the Painted Flowers stamp set, I was very, very surprised. I did not hesitate to buy it and this beauty is still my all-time favorite stamp set. To me, Altenew flowers are the one and only!! I feel truly blessed and extremely grateful for being in this wonderful team and pray for the next 3 years!!!”
“Although I haven't been on the Altenew card design team very long, only since October of 2016, it has truly been a joy to work with their gorgeous designs. From markers & sprays to stencils & kits, there's always something new and refreshing to try. I have known Tasnim & Jen for a long, long time. We go all the way back to the early days of the Runway Challenge:) I not only consider them to be fantastic designers but genuine friends, which is the best thing about working for Altenew.”

“Although I’m a relatively new member of the Altenew Card Design Team joining October 2016, I’ve been a long term fan from day one with Persian Motifs being my first set. For me, Altenew is synonymous with elegant, on trend designs and personal favorites are always the stunning florals. It’s such an honor to be on the team. Happy Anniversary Altenew!”

“From day one, I have witnessed how this stamp company blossoms and influences the stamping world. Altenew has never ceased to amaze me with their innovative products and timeless designs. I feel like an artist when I use Altenew stamps, dies and now stencils and kits. Altenew is always forward-thinking and emphasizes on educating every stamper regardless of the level. And, there is always something fun and exciting over Altenew blog! Altenew makes my card-making life a truly happy one.”
“When I wasn't part of Altenew even then my friends and those who follow my work knew how much I LOVED working with their stamps. I remember having just the Peony Scrolls stamp set and I used it in SO many different ways it's not even funny. Altenew is my favorite company EVER. I love it and love everything they make. I am absolutely honored to be a part of it and also the amazing group of ladies I work with. It's like a never-ending party for me! Wishing Altenew and the team behind this company a very happy anniversary!”
