Altenew & Freckled Fawn collaboration blog hop!

Thank You
Hey!

Happy Friday! Woo hoo – the weekend it just about here and I'm kicking it off here on the blogeroo with a fantastic blog hop as two awesome companies join forces: Altenew & Freckled Fawn! You should have hopped across here from Adrienne Alvis; if you haven't, then be sure to start out at Altenew HQ. :)


Freckled Fawn kindly offered the Altenew Design Team some of their yummy products to work with for our blog hop projects and I couldn't resist trendy arrow-shaped paperclips, geometric washi tape and cool puffy alphabet stickers. :)

Thank You close up

As I sat down to play with these new pretties along with my stash of wonderful Altenew goodies, I found that the products complemented each other perfectly.

tips and tricks
  • I stamped my card front with triangles from the Sohcahtoa stamp set (one of my favourites) and found they co-ordinated so well with the triangles on the washi tape. 
  • To try and keep the design balanced, I purposely stamped the triangles on the card base facing upwards as they are on the washi tape. 
  • The paperclip at the top helps to guide your eyes to follow the design through the sentiment. The 'you' is a partially stamped sentiment from Label Love and overhangs the focal point slightly to balance with the overhanging paperclip in the opposite corner. 
Well that's my card (and detailed explanation!) for today's amazing blog hop. Don't forget to comment along with way as there are TWO Freckled Fawn Capture embellishment kits and TWO Atlenew $30 gift certificates up for grabs for randomly selected comments along the hop. Comments must be left by Tuesday 26th January by 11.59am EST.

I won't keep you any longer as you're sooooooooo near the end of the blog hop. Next on your hopping adventure is the final stop at the Freckled Fawn blog. Happy hopping and have a fabulous weekend!

I love this card - sort of clean and simple. I am always collecting little clips and then never using them. This is a great way to use them - even a heart shaped one or star would work though I really liked your yellow arrow that matches the paper! Gotta hop along now.
