Altenew & Pretty Pink Posh Collaboration Blog Hop


Today Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh are joining forces for a special collaboration blog hop full of inspiration, special offers and prizes galore! You should have hopped on over here from Heather Hoffman, but if you haven't then be sure to start out at Altenew HQ. :)

Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh products complement each other beautifully and they're ideal for making a start on your Christmas/holiday projects! I couldn't resist shaking things up a bit by inking up Altenew's Modern Deer stamp set (again!) and pairing it with Pretty Pink Posh clear 4mm sequins.

I've also paired the Modern Deer stamp set with the Winter Cottage stamp set for the backdrop of the scene. I simply coloured elements of it with a white gel pen and added touches of glitter glue for an icy sparkle. :)

This blog hop is a pretty special one as Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh are celebrating our their first anniversary of collaborating so they're celebrating in style by having amazing giveaways and offers!

There's two $100 prize packs from Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh up for grabs. Two winners will be randomly selected from comments left on any one of the blogs in the blog hop. You've got to be in it to win it, so be sure to leave comments by Wednesday 2nd November 2016 at midnight EST. Winners will be announced on the Altenew and Pretty Pink Posh blogs on Thursday November 3rd.

Simply enter 'ALTENEWLOVESPPP' at the checkout for Altenew orders and 'PPPLOVESALTENEW' for Pretty Pink Posh orders. Hurry though, the offer is only available until midnight EST on Sunday 30th October 2016.

Right, that's enough babbling from me. There's some serious hopping to be done! Next on your hopping adventure is Shannon McComb. :)

Happy Friday Eve! Welcome to the Altenew October Release Blog Hop! If you're hopping along with us today, then you should have hopped across here from my fellow talented Altenew teamie, Svitlana Shayevich. If you're not, then there's no better time like the present to join in the fun so be sure to start out at the Altenew HQ. :)

Today we're celebrating the release of 16 fantastic new stamp sets and there's something for everyone! I couldn't resist inking up the Modern Deer stamp set to get an early start on my Christmas cards (well...early for me anyway!) ;)

AmyGray Warm winter wishes

I love that this set contains two stunning deer in a layered stamping format that makes is super-easy to add detail and dimension to these beautiful images. To add a little more texture to the woodland theme I couldn't resist popping the scene on a card blank created from my favourite Altenew white woodgrain cardstock.

Now a blog hop wouldn't be a blog hop without prizes, right? Altenew are giving away a $50 gift certificate to THREE lucky winners and I'm giving away a $30 gift certificate to one lucky winner. To be in with a chance of winning the $50 gift certificate, leave a comment on the Altenew blog and to be in with a chance of winning my $30 gift certificate pop a comment on this post. All comments need to be left by Wednesday October 19th at 11.59pm EST and winners will be announced on Thursday October 20th. Good luck!

Well, that's enough from me today as it's time for you to hop along to the next stop which just so happens to be the lovely Nicole Picadura – happy hopping!
