Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 1 with Shari Carroll

Altenew, Blog Hop

Welcome to the Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop!!! If you’re coming from Laura Jane‘s blog, you’re in the right place. We are celebrating our unique stamping community by sharing projects inspired by what we love, stamping and crafting!! 

Right now, I’m inspired to make Christmas cards. I thought it would be fun to use some non-holiday stamps to create my card. I used the Altenew Watercolor Dots and Holiday Script Words to create a clean and simple look.

I stamped the star images first and silver embossed them. Next, I stamped the dots in white to finish off my quick background. I cut a triangle from red cardstock and mounted it to the card with a silver circle at the top. I used the “Believe” die from the Holiday Script Words die set from Silver Silk Tonic paper mounted to a strip of Slate cardstock. Pretty easy peasy!!!

  1. I LOVE this card! And I LOVE how you used non-Christmas stamps to make it. This makes it so simple and easy! My first thought was tree, but after looking at it for a minute I thought it could go the Santa hat way also.

  2. Your Christmas card is so pretty! I think the triangle is a tree, although I’m still going back and forth(lol). I really loved how texturized it looks!

  3. I appreciate these clever ideas to stretch my “general” stamps. I saw a Christmas tree at first, but I can totally see it the other way. But either way, it’s a super fun card. Thanks for sharing, being one of the sponsors of this hop, and being such an awesome part of the crafty community!

  4. Love to see the unique ways crafters think outside the box! Which accounts for the fact that there are SO many techniques! Somebody had to thunk ‘em up! 😊 thanks for sharing a quick easy card to duplicate or mass produce!

  5. Quick, easy, festive, and fun, I love this card!! Well, I thought the triangle was a tree until you asked the question then I could see it as a Santa Hat too lol.
