A Year in Review Challenge 2019 Post

I am excited to announce that this post is my first ever entry to a blog challenge that Altenew is having for December #AltenewChallenge. Altenew has some amazing products and while I would LOVE to show you all of them, I am only allowed to enter one per post. So here is the inspiration they have provided monthly for 2019 and the idea is to review these and find new inspiration for December:

And here is my entry using Altenew Layered Floral Cover dies. I just love these dies as they make such interesting backgrounds, especially when you change up the colors.

And since I have always been a rule breaker, I’m just going to have to show the other cards I created using Altenew Layered Dies, because I just LOVE them. The Happy Birthday and Have a Sweet Day sentiments are from The Stamps of Life. The celebrate and pretty things sentiments are from Stampin Up! The Christmas sentiments are from Echo Park. The Altenew Layered Dies are Snowflake Stars, Floral, Medallion, and Plaid. You can find the Altenew Layered Dies on the website: https://altenew.com/

The Layered Dies are a set, which you can also use individually, doubling the creative fun you can have. I did that here with the Layered Plaid. You almost don’t notice there is only one die in the lighter blue version since I used patterned paper.

Hope you enjoyed looking at these and please wish me luck in the contest!
