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. it is both! kind of like those drawings where you see what you expect to see. with a different perspective you then see something else. I saw a tree first but it could be a santa hat. no matter, they are both cute.

  2. Love the quick and simple design of this card. It seems like there isn’t enough hours in the days any more especially this time of year. I think it looks like an elf hat. Great card. Thanks so much for sharing your art.🐧

  3. I see a Christmas tree. I wouldn’t have thought to look thru my stamps and dies that are not a specific holiday/season that I’m trying to create.
    Thank you, Doris

  4. Loved your clever card. My eye saw a tree but after you mentioned a Santa hat I could see that also. I think if you added a little white at the base of the triangle it would be a hat. I love your background. Thanks for sharing your time and talent with us.

  5. Love the inspirational background. The off set of the accent stars to the dots is something I would never have thought of without your inspiration.

  6. Tree or Santa hat? Hmmm, we’ll it could be either really, but I’m leaning towards Santa hat. Swap the pompom out for a star and you’ve got a tree. Nothing at all atop, cut from some yellow cardstock, add a little mouse, and it could be a yummy piece of cheese. Easy peasy 😊

  7. I really love your card! The images and colors are great. I can see both the tree or a Santa hat, and I think either one works perfectly with the card. :)

  8. My first thought was a tree and
    I’m sticking to it. After
    you mentioned the hat, I could
    see the hat. Wonderful card.
    Love the silver. thanks
    for sharing

  9. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful holiday card. I am new to card making and Simon Stamps seems to have taken the cake for some of the best stamp sets I’ve seen. Really looking forward to using some of your products in the future!

  10. What a cute card. I did not even see “hat” until you mentioned it in the video. It kind of looks like a hat but i definitely see tree!

  11. How gorgeous! I can see both – initially I saw a tree, but then I thought that with the “bauble” on top, it looked more like a Santa hat with the white Pom pom – plus, the sentiment “believe” suits more to a Santa story, I think… but it could totally be both, it’s one of these clever designs where different people will see different things :-)

  12. Adorable card. I think it looks like a Santa hat because of the word believe accompanying it. It could also be a monochromatic tree though. Thanks for being part of the blog hop.
