Our Video Inspiration Team aims to inspire you to create one-of-a-kind handmade projects using our products in a quick, easy, and hassle-free way! Each daily video tutorial is short, fun, and jam-packed with useful tips and tricks to help you enhance your crafting skills – whether you are a beginner, intermediate, or advanced crafter.

You can read more about our Video Inspiration Team on the introduction post HERE and HERE.

Without further ado, we would like to introduce two incredibly talented designers who will be part of Altenew's Video Inspiration Team!

Amber Rain Davis – Color Connection with Amber – COMING SOON!

Color Connection with Amber is a video series devoted to jumpstarting your creativity with color. In each episode, we will create projects with the color palette featured in the Altenew Monthly Inspiration Challenge. Learn tips and techniques to combine colors in unexpected ways. The possibilities are endless with Altenew's line of color-coordinated inks, sprays, watercolor, markers, washi tapes, paper, and more. Harness the full potential of your mediums and connect with Amber through color!

Profile Amber Rain Davis 600px

Amber, born in Mississippi, grew up outside of Washington, D.C. She, her husband, and 3 daughters reside in Southern California, where they enjoy every moment of sunshine and outdoor living. When she isn’t crafting, you’ll find Amber on the soccer field or basketball court with her girls. Amber has been artistic for as long as she can remember. She is a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT) who discovered stamping and cardmaking in 2017. She embraced her new pleasure and became a Certified Altenew Educator in 2018. Her style is inspired by bold colors, high contrast, and experimenting with supplies. Amber is passionate about sharing tips and techniques with you and the crafting community.

Nicole Watt – Sketch Starters with Nicole – COMING SOON!

Sketch Starters with Nicole is a series for beginner and experienced cardmakers that helps you get started on a project using a basic card sketch. Based on her Altenew Academy class “Mission: Inspiration”, each video uses a new, thoughtfully designed sketch created by Nicole. She will show you one card that takes the sketch literally, and one that uses the sketch more for inspiration. As a bonus, the sketch image will be linked in each video for you to save and use as inspiration whenever you're looking for the perfect layout to kickstart your next project. 

Profile Nicole Watt 600px

A proud US Air Force Veteran, Nicole currently lives in the Omaha, Nebraska area with her USAF retired husband and two cats. She is a full-time web and graphic design business owner, but, when she wants to escape from computer pixels, she goes to her basement craft retreat to work on card designs for hours on end. Nicole has been blogging since 2010 and creating video content on YouTube since 2014. She is a style chameleon; changing and adapting to any fun and new idea that comes to her mind. Some days she’s clean & simple, and other days, layered & complex. But, most of all, she loves inspiring, sharing and educating through videos to help you gain confidence in the art of paper crafting.
