Altenew November 2016 Blog Hop

Hey!

Happy Tuesday! I'm here today to celebrate Altenew's fantastic release of 16 brand-new stamp sets and 8 die sets as part of a good ol' fashioned blog hop. You should have hopped across here from the amazing Yana Smakula – if you haven't then be sure to start out at Altenew HQ. :)

For my blog hop project, I couldn't resist inking up the super-trendy Happy Dreams stamp set to create a motivational card for a dear friend of mine.

Be a dreamer...make it happen!

I decided to pair two sentiments together for this design. The way that the main sentiment has those little thought bubbles trickling down just called for it! The three stars are from a cluster of stars from the stamp set and I stamped them using Volcano Lake ink to add a pop of colour and a visual triangle to complement the focal point. Easy. Peasy. :D

Now a blog hop wouldn't be a blog hop without some prizes and special offers, right? Well first up Altenew have a fantastic promotional offer by offering a free You Make Me Happy stamp set with every purchase!


This offer is available while stocks last and the set will automatically be added to your order. Hurry though, the offer ends on Thursday November 17th 2016 at 11:59pm EST and is limited to one per customer.

Secondly, Altenew are celebrating the blog hop by giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners! To be in with a chance of winning, simply leave a comment on the Altenew blog by Monday November 21st 11:59pm EST and the winners will be announced on the Altenew Blog on Tuesday November 22nd.

If that wasn't enough, there's also the chance to win a $30 gift certificate right here on this blog post! Simply leave a comment here by Monday November 21st at 5:00pm EST and I'll announce the lucky winner on Tuesday November 22nd. :)

Right, there's some serious hopping to be done so that's enough from me today! Next on your inspirational blog hopping adventure the fantastic, Kathy Racoosin. Enjoy!
