Hello, and welcome to the Altenew November 2015 Blog Hop! If you came from the Altenew blog, you are right on track! Today the design team girls are sharing some fabulous projects to celebrate the release of 10 new stamp sets and 6 types of 8.5″ x 11″ paper.


I created a set of clean and simple one-layer cards featuring the following stamp sets: Beautiful Day, Oriental Orchid ,Oriental Orchid Korean, and Winter Cardinal . If you are following the Altenew blog, you may already heard from HERE that I started designing stamps for Altenew. Here are the stamp sets I designed for November release:


It wasn’t easy to design layering flower stamps, but I’m glad how it turned out. What do you think? The most exciting about the Oriental Orchid stamp set is that it has a Korean version which is the Oriental Orchid Korean stamp set. (Visit the product page HERE to see the translation for each Korean sentiment.)


Do you know how to say “I love you” in Korean? We say “Sarang-haeayo”(사랑해요). It’s always good to hear “사랑해요” from someone and say “사랑해요” to someone you love. So this card is all about my love for everyone I care about.

This is a video showing you how I created my card. You can watch the video tutorial here or in HD on YouTube. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up. I really appreciate your support and love.
