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.

“I’m still beyond honored to be part of this amazing team with my sweet, supportive, and talented teamies. I wasn’t a big fan of floral stamps before I joined the Altenew team – especially layering stamps – because I didn’t know how to use them and what to do with them. However, since I started playing with Altenew's layering stamps, 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 skills with their most elegant and versatile designs!”

“It has truly been an honor to work with the Altenew Card Design Team. Each month they wow me with their new designs and exciting products. My favorites would have to be the inks. I think it's brilliant to have four colors to each set. They stamp like a dream and blend like butter. The stencils would be a close second. The geometric designs have stolen my heart. Happy Anniversary, Altenew! Thank you for inspiring me with your innovative products and beautiful hearts.”

“Back in early 2014, I was on the Runway Inspired Challenge with Jennifer and Tasnim. They are two super talented card-makers that I admire. When Tasnim asked me to try out her layering stamp set, which she first designed back then, I knew that she was onto something HUGE! Fast forward to 2018, I am blessed to be on the Altenew Card Design Team for over a year now and the fun never stops. Altenew has continued to amaze and challenge me to be a better card-maker. Thank you, Altenew!”

“I fell in love with Altenew from the very first release and continued falling in love with every release that follows. Now, four years later, I feel the same. After being on DT for 2.5 years and having the privilege to work with many products I’m still amazed to my very soul by every release. I'm a big fan of simple old stamping and I love creating realistic designs. Altenew layering stamps totally satisfy these desires. They fit my style perfectly. I'm a better crafter when I'm working with Altenew products.”

“I joined the Altenew Card Design Team in October 2016. I’ve always been a long-term fan of their elegant, on-trend designs and my personal favorites are always the stunning florals. It appears to me that Altenew puts a lot of thought into all their products and it has been exciting this past year to see the range expand to include watercolors, washi tape, sprays, and stencils. It’s such an honor to be on the team. Happy Anniversary, Altenew!”

“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 the most 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! 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.”

It's crazy how fast time flies! We “just recently” celebrated the Altenew 3rd anniversary and today, Altenew is 4! It has been another great year full of joy to work with all the beautiful stamps and more! I’m always waiting for the new releases and love the feeling when I’m itching to get my hands on the new products and start creating my cards. Thank you Altenew Team for your hard work! I’m absolutely honored to be a part of this amazing team! Happy anniversary!”

“Being a part of the Altenew team is a pure blessing. When you love all the products, designs and ideas of the creators, when the team and the coordinators are the best support in every situation that may arise, when you're a part of making new products and much more to count, you just know that your work and your creations are worth it! This is an important thing for an artist! Altenew is one of the best things that ever happened to me and it made me really happy! I wish Altenew many more years, products, and admirers!”

“One year. I just completed my one year journey with Altenew in January and I still feel as if I joined only yesterday. It has been an amazing ride. They keep all us fans on our toes with their beautiful and innovative designs that often blow us away! It's always fun when you love what you do and I LOVE everything Altenew. I still pinch myself often to see if I am dreaming. I wish Altenew and each member behind this company lots of good luck, wishes and a very happy anniversary.”

“Every year Altenew just gets better and better! And I feel very privileged to be a part (even just a small part) of such a fabulous company. They have gathered such a motivated and innovative team, each person keeps the wheels running so smoothly and shares such enthusiasm that we just can't help but be motivated to create! Happy Anniversary, Altenew. I can't wait to see what the next year brings although I am hoping there might be some flowers involved (wink)!”

“Altenew is now four years old! It seems like just yesterday when we celebrated the 3rd anniversary. Time flies! Obviously, I had a fabulous time every time I saw the Altenew releases and I am still amazed by Altenew's incredible designs!
