Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop Day 2 + Giveaway

Altenew Friends Blog Hop Graphic

Hello crafty friends, Latisha Yoast here and I am so excited for you all to join us in the Altenew Crafty Friends Blog Hop.  If you came from Anna Komenda’s Blog, you are in the right place! Be sure to read to the bottom for your opportunity to win 37 different prizes too!

The very first time that I made a card (for real) with proper cardstock and stamps was in 2001! My husband was about to go on his very first deployment, our daughter was 5, and our son was just a baby so we were a very young family. At the time the only place to get a nice card was at the Hallmark store, and the number of cards I needed to send him off with… well, buying them was out of the question because we didn’t have that kind of money. So, I was at a new friend’s house, and she had all of these stamps and ink pads. I had no idea what I was doing but the thought of putting love into a card to bring someone joy made me absolutely giddy. I still feel that way every time I sit down and make a card. If someone would have told me back then, that one day I would work for craft companies and magazines, I would have laughed. But here we are 17 years later, I still love getting my fingers inky, and I love all of the wonderful people I get to call friends in this community and especially this magazine! Cardmakers truly are very special people and some of the nicest I have ever met.

Today I am sharing a few Christmas cards, both using the Festive Poinsettia Stamp set from Altenew.

It is always fun to use the same stamp in different ways! For this card, the poinsettia was stamped in a light yellow ink onto watercolor paper, then watercolored. Once dry the poinsettias were carefully cut out with scissors and popped up with foam tape to create lovely dimension.

This card is similar in that the images were watercoloured, but the poinsettia was stamped many times onto a panel to create the illusion of a bigger stamp!

    My favorite holiday tradition is decorating cookies with my mom. I remember my excitement as a child when my mom would put the frosting on the cookies and my brother and I would pour (a few too many) sprinkles on top. Now that I am older, both my mom and I put the frosting on the cookies while my son and daughter pour (a few too many) sprinkles on top. It is one of the best times of the year!

    We have so many traditions it is hard to pick a favorite! We hunt for the perfect tree to cut down, I give the kids a dated ornament each year, we frost sugar cookies, have lottery tickets in the stockings but my favorite has to be photos with Santa. I even bought a Santa suit so we could do them at home as my kids got too old to do this in public:):) Thank you for the opportunity!!

    Lovely poinsettias. Our traditions are changing with my children growing up and moving away (far away) from home. Not sure what traditions will carry on…but baking cookies probably will.

    I am in LOVE with Latisha’s poinsettia cards. I want to make them myself!!!
    Our favorite Christmas tradition was my parent’s annual Open House after the community Christmas tree in our small town. We sang carols around the tree in our safe little town, Santa arrived on our antique fire truck, and then everyone came back to feast on food the wonderful cooks prepared. It was truly a wonderful memory!
    Mother always decorated with poinsettias so these cards spell happiness, safety, security, and lots of Christmas LOVE!

    and that’s what this stamp has – looks more
    realistic. thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful cards! I love the dimensional one, where the poinsettias pop off the page.
    My favorite holiday tradition is taking time off during the holidays to spend time with family. We can just sit around in our pajamas and watch movies (which actually, is one of my favorite things to do!), or we can get dressed up and go to a holiday event…it doesn’t really matter, because we’ve got time off to relax, laugh, and enjoy each other’s company. Good stuff for the holidays!

    My favorite Holiday tradition is when my husband reads Twas The Night Before Christmas to our family even if the kids are growing up and grown up. I can’t decide which card I love more. The vivid red is striking and the lighter card is so realistic. I am just going to love them both the same!

  49. Brenda Drager November 30, 2018 at 9:45 pm - Reply

    Amazing cards and fantastic winnings. My favorite holiday tradition is going out to cut down the tree, having a whiner and marshmallow roast along with a bonfire and some sliding, finished off with dragging the trees onto the back of the trucks. Sometimes they fall out 3 or 4 times on the way home.

    My newest fave tradition is going to our daughters home to watch our young grandsons opening their presents. There is nothing more magical than watching their ittle faces light up with the wonder of Christmas.

    No tree this year, just lots of making little prizes for the people who bless us all year. The little one that stays in our home for 2 days a week would love to help tear down the tree so he’ll get a wrapped box with a manger scene on top that is age appropriate and we’ll have a blast together. Altenew cards with poinsettia are just darling!

    I’ve had many Christmas traditions over the years and some have changed as my family grew and circumstances changed. We still celebrate together every year and some traditions are the same. I have created my Christmas cards for many years and that tradition still stands. Both of the poinsettia cards are gorgeous!

    I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your color combinations with the Festive Poinsettia Stamp!!! The layout is gorgeous, colors are beautiful. Both cards are perfect. Our family tradition since we have a moderately large family, is that we rotate Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day every year, so that we can celebrate with all of them. We have so many places to go, and we had to come up with a tradition that gives equal time to all. Its a bit of a job keeping track of it all, but it is well worth it because we’ll always have the memories.
    TFS–Have a very blessed holiday season!

    Beautiful cards! I love the light blue background with the bright red poinsettia’s! My favorite holiday tradition is just being with family.

    Gorgeous cards using one of my stamp sets. One of our favorite traditions is getting in the car on Christmas Eve and riding around to see everyone’s Christmas lights. We also ride over to Jekyll Island GA and enjoy their lights as well.

    Lovely to see different styles with the same stamp set, they are both beautiful and festive. We don’t follow too many traditions, but every year my daughters and I make an over-the-top Shepherd’s Pie on Christmas Day. I love learning how others got involved in crafting, thanks for sharing your story.

    My favorite Christmas tradition is still going the the late candle light service on Christmas Eve. All the hustle and bustle slips away and even though I cry through Silent Night I am at my most peaceful and calm. The church is lit with candles and red poinsettias so I love the idea of sharing the beautiful cards you displayed. So Pretty!
