Welcome to another fun blog hop! The September Altenew products have just been released and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways. You should have arrived here from Kymona Tracey. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please visit Altenew Card Blog.
Here is the card that I made for today’s blog hop! A lovely holiday card using the Holiday Bow stamp set. I love that it’s one of the layering stamp sets, where you can get shading and depth on the poinsettias in no time!
This is my favorite from the release because of the poinsettias, the variation of leaves, the berries… you even get evergreen brunch layering stamps! It also comes with a bow, so can create lovely flower arrangements or wreaths.
I went with the Happy Holidays sentiment from the Festive Poinsettia stamp set. I embossed it with Antique Gold embossing powder to add touches of gold on my card. I love the fact that with this sentiment the card does not shout Christmas, it can be more versatile to give to others.

I am a new subscriber to your,YouTube channel and a new reader of your blog. This card is particularly beautiful , the detail is fantastic.
The embossed sentiment on your card looks as close to a commercially embossed image as I’ve ever seen. And, of course, poinsettias are so classic at this time of year. Just beautiful!
Well done Vicky, I like how you made some of the images layered such a great look to the card.

Wonderful as always!
You are a true artist in more ways than one. The art work is great but your presentation skills are excellent. I love to watch artists on YouTube, but some are hard to watch. Your videos are always so professional, your work area is neat, you move through the projects quickly, and you are a great instructor. To have all those elements in one person is amazing and very nice for the viewer. I have learned so much from watching all your videos I can’t thank you enough. You are really a gifted individual and I appreciate the fact you want to share your talents with perfect strangers. My favorite work is your art journals. I watch them over and over. God bless
What a gorgeous card and fabulous stamp set. You make it look so simple and easy… I find your little suggestions like adding the red dots and gold drops really helpful, they made the card look complete. I need to try and remember that next time I think “something” is missing. Thanks for sharing Vicky, fab tutorial as always.
I absolutely love this card and the latest Altenew release but what REALLY caught my eye was the instruction leaflet jam packed with ideas and the colours to use. Really useful for both newbies and experienced crafters alike.
Your holiday card turned out to be very elegant. I love how you used gold embossing which really added a festive feel to the finished design. Thanks for sharing your time and talent with us.
I agree with you on the Holiday Bow set being a favorite, I can’t wait to get my hands (and ink) on it and start playing lol. I think I could make all my Christmas cards just using this set alone, it really is so versatile with all it has included. Your card is beautiful and is definitely inspiration for me. Thanks for sharing.
I have been waiting for just the right stamp to use for my cards this year ,thank you . My cards will have yours on it ….Thank you again

Beautiful beautiful card! I love the antique gold embossing you added as well!
Thank you for the video. I see you put each stamp back in it’s proper position as you use it, just like I do. This is a very versatile set. When I saw the bow, I just kind of bypassed it, but you’ve made me look at it again & I am impressed with everything in it. Thanks so much for your beautiful card!
Thank you for the demonstration video… I’m a little embarrassed because I’ve never heard of Altenew company before. I really like the way you layer things and really give your project dimension and texture. I also really enjoyed Altenew’s ink color choices. Looks like I’m going to have to go shopping now. Happy Holidays and Thanks again! 🙂

This is the first video of yours I have seen. What lovely stamp sets! The poinsettias remind me of my grandmother and her love of flowers. The pine branches remind me of home – I grew up on a former pine tree farm. Our yard was filled with pine cones.
I really enjoyed the card that you styled from these Altenew sets, thank you for sharing!!
It’s a beautiful card Vicky! I’m rather fond of Bountiful Branches set, but you make a good point about this one having so many great pieces to it, that you can go in many directions with this set. You might have changed my mind, or do I now need them both!

I love the Holiday Bow set. It reminds me of my grandmom’s poinsettia in her garden. I also loved your layout, it’s so Christmas!
I love the rich colors you put into the poinsettias. They look so pretty. Seeing them always make me think of Christmas as we usually have several decorating our home each December.

Vicky your card is so reminiscent of a beautiful centerpiece on a mantel & your colouring is wonderful, as always.
