HELLO and welcome to A Year In Review Blog Hop hosted by Altenew !!! I’m feeling so honored to be invited to this special event once again for this year. It’s hard to believe that it’s already time for a review and we have only a few days left from the year of 2018. 

If you’ve arrived here from Lisa Fonseca‘s blog, you are right on track. If you’re lost on the way and want to start over, please visit Altenew blog.

The lovely friends at Altenew have created this collage for me with 4 best cards I’ve picked :). Thank you so much!!!


Along with those four projects I chose some more of my cards which I love and/or were loved by many crafty friends.
If you want to see the original post, please click the picture.

Let’s get started!

This card was one of the winners at Altenew 2018 February Inspiration Challenge. I colored the flowers and a butterfly from Wild Hibiscus on a gray paper using Prismacolor colored pencils. I’ve linked a coloring video as well in the original post.

Next up is a card I made for Altenew’s 4th Anniversary using Happy Bloom stamp set. I colored the floral border using Altenew Artist Markers


This Sweetest Peas stamp set from June 2018 Release is one of my favorite stamp sets from Altenew. I’ve made a card in navy, gold and peach color combination.  


Next card was one of my cards featuring Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan set. I watercolored the gold heat embossed Peony Spray and kept the card clean and simple. 

As Altenew released Alcohol Marker Refills I had to use them like alcohol inks. To make this card I colored the gorgeous florals from Crown Bloom and the background using the Alcohol Marker Refills!

Im September I had the pleasure to play with the new Washi tapes by Altenew. This card was my favorite from the projects I made to showcase the new Washi tapes. I used Red Ombre washi tape to cut the roses using Rose Flurries 3D dies. They look gorgeous on the black!

I made next card for Altenew November 2018 Stencil and Ink Spray Release Blog Hop. This card was chosen from many crafty friends who commented on the post as their favorite. I watercolored the floral background created using Floral Art set with Altenew Watercolor Pan set and then covered it with a large glitter butterfly using Flowing Butterfly stencil.

Finally I want to show you this card. The Build-A-Flower Camellia on this were colored using the new Artist Markers set E.  Actually I wanted to place the orange flower over the left bottom corner and make the card up side down with the sentiment on the white clean area. But I didn’t like the layout and ended up with this design :).
