it’s a Friend Friday With Altenew


Welcome back to another Friend Friday with Altenew, we really are loving the amazing creations both teams are making using Chameleon Pens with Altenew Stamps and dies, they really are perfect partners!

Today Olesya and Ilina have created projects using Altenew Poinsettia & Pine stamp set, Altenew Winter Cottage stamp set and the Succulents Stamp set.


By Olesya Kharkova

Olesya said “I love winter with all my heart. That frosty morning, the smell of pinecones and fur trees in the forest, deep snow banks and endless feeling of coziness inspired me to make this card.”

If you would like to know how to make this Snowy village card you can download the instructions here.


Ilina has opted for a potted card design. She said “I love Altenew stamps and had really hard time deciding. Since succulents have been so popular in the past year or so I decided to go with them and used two color tones to color them. ”

    Amazing coloring on these gorgeous cards! Love this collaboration with Altenew! Their designs are so beautiful and are enhanced by the coloring with the Chameleon pens!

    Love the cards. A great difference between the two – one is cold
    and winter and the other is warm and tropical feeling.
    The scene on the circle and the use of the corrugated
    paper are fun touches.
    The cacti are colored so well.
    thanks for sharing.
    Enjoying the “friend Friday gathering” this month.
