“Giving Thanks” Altenew Educators Blog Hop and Linky Party “

With all that’s happening it the world, it is such a good idea to give thanks to all the front line workers that are helping everyone stay safe! When I got invited to join in with other Altenew Educators and create a card for this blog I knew I wanted to participate.

I decided to start with my Misti Stamp positioner. I chose the thank you sendiment from Altenew’s Flower Arrangement Bundle. (https://altenew.com/products/flower-arrangement-stamp-die-bundle)

The stamp from Altenew’s Everlasting Happiness, (https://altenew.com/products/everlasting-happiness-stamp-set) Its one of my personal favorite sets.

I used Altenew’s Permanent Black Ink and the beautiful watercolor markers. https://altenew.com/products/watercolor-marker-ultimate-bundle https://altenew.com/products/permanent-black-crisp-ink

Above is the card I made. I decides to color them a few ways!

I used my Altenew cubes and a brush and blended this card!

I got out my watercolor markers and played with these cards. I had so much fun. I even taught my granddaughters to use the watercolor markers,

The above card I decided to make it all blue!

I got my Granddaughters involved. In the above photos you can see her taking the watercolor marker coloring on a piece of plastic then using a regular brush and water to make her beautiful card.

Here is her sisters card! I love how much the girls love to make cards with me. I love how they all turned out.

  1. What a fun time you must have had crafting with your grand daughters! Fun cards and fast to make and color for giving to our front line workers.


  2. Darling stamped and colored cards! And I love that you made them with your granddaughter. I still cherish memories of crafting as a child, and the encouragement and love of my mentors.


  3. Best crafting memories I have are with my grandmother. I wish I had more time with her. She was self taught in many handcrafts and had so many unique ways of doing things.


  4. You have shown how versatile that stamp is. I especially love the pictures of your granddaughter.
    You are passing on a hobby she will enjoy the rest of her life.


  5. These are all great! So much fun getting your granddaughters involved…I bet they loved it! I love the idea of stamping a bunch of cards at once to color!


  6. All of the cards are lovely! You are so fortunate to be able to spend time with your grand daughters. One day, when we are together again, I would love to share my new found love of card making with my grand kids. Thank you for sharing!


  7. Beautiful thank you cards and your granddaughter is off to a great start learning to make cards as lovely as her grandmother.


  8. Beautiful cards. Great design to mass produce to thank all those “essential” workers who are keeping us safe and fed during the trying times.


    • That us a great idea to try out different things. The ink blending is pretty, and the watercolor markers are very pretty as well. That is awesome that you got to teach your granddaughters how to use them. My niece and nephew loved trying out my watercolor paints. It was so much fun!


  9. Beautiful cards. Love that your granddaughters crafted with you!!

  10. That stamp is so pretty. I really like the way you colored your cards. It’s so fun doing these things with granddaughters. Enjoy it while they have the interest. My granddaughter used too make cards with me, but now she has no interest in it any more. I really miss that.


  11. I love when family craft together – reminds me of when I used to go over to my sister’s and craft with my niece and nephews (and they are now in their 20s and 30s!). Thanks for sharing both the cards and the moments with us!
