Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop


Good morning everyone in the CAS(E) this Sketch universe!  I have something a little different for you guys today.  Not only am I posting something on a Tuesday but I'm celebrating a ton of amazing challenge blogs along with Altenew on the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop!  If you are here to find the current challenge, you can find it here but I hope you'll check out this blog hop as well.  I thought you'd get a kick out of that.  Just check out all the blogs that are participating:


There is no lack of inspiration there.  I was thrilled when May contacted me to get involved.  What could be better than a blog hop celebrating all the amazing challenge blogs out there?  Maybe getting to see the owners of the challenge blogs create projects using Altenew products and sharing them all for your inspiration?  Well, you are on the right hop then!  Ha ha!

My cards today use Altenew's Doodle Blooms and Halftone Happy stamp sets along with CAS(E) this Sketch #189, our current challenge which you can find here.  I hope you like them.


My first card stretches the sketch just a bit but keeps with the CAS idea by being all one layer.  I stamped and masked off my "happy" before adding in various Doodle Blooms.  Next, I used copics and a multi-liner to add extra fun to my blooms and leaves.  Lastly, I added some sequins and enamel dots before positioning the "birthday" portion of my sentiment along the tail of the "y".  My  next card is a little less CAS but no less fun.


I went a little daisy crazy on this card but I think you can totally see the sketch in it.  I stamped a ton of Doodle Blooms, colored them along with my "happy", and had my Brother Scan & Cut go crazy cutting them out.  Next, I layered them all haphazardly on my black and white card base using foam tape here and there for dimension.  Once I had a floral arrangement I liked, I added my sentiment which was finished off on a little green banner attached to the "y".


I hope you enjoyed my contributions to the Altenew Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop.  Here are some more details about the hop:
  • You can get all the nitty gritty details about the blog hop on the Altenew Blog.
  • The hop goes from Today (Sept 13) until Oct 5th.
  • Altenew has a special offer for you guys.  Free gift with every purchase now through September 16.  More info on the blog.
  • To celebrate this fantastic blog hop, Altenew is giving away $35 gift certificates to FIVE lucky winners. Winners will be chosen at random from the comments left on any of the blogs listed below and will be announced on the Altenew blog on October 17th, 2016.
  • You can participate by using the Inlinkz here: 


We hope to see you along the hop and I hope you'll come back and join us at CAS(E) this Sketch really soon!  Here's the blog hop order so you can keep having fun along the way:
