Alexandra Renke Kreativ-Projekt Nr.2 Advent Blog Hop

Hi everyone!

Today I'm participating in the Alexandra Renke Kreativ-Projekt Nr.2 Advent Blog Hop.  

I was sent a beautiful box of goodies to play with all the way from Alexandra Renke in Germany. Inside were a couple of stamps, a beautiful ornament die, embossing folder, stencil, a few embellishments, some gorgeous panels, papers, and envelopes. The idea behind the hop was to create something for someone as a thank you.

First, I created a couple of individual cards to go with my gift since I hadn't decided yet if I was going to give it as a Christmas gift or thank you gift. 

Here's the Christmas card...

 ...and the thank you card...

For my thank you gift I created a card set using some of the panels I was sent. There were so many beautiful panels with gorgeous watercoloured images on them but there were also some with fun geometric shapes. I decided to colour these with Copic Markers before adding them to cards which I gave to my kids' wonderful piano teacher.



These cards also made use of  the star stencil and star embossing folder that came in my parcel, as well as an included silver envelope which I cut strips from and placed next to the coloured panels.

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out the rest of the projects made for the Alexandra Renke Kreativ-Projekt Nr.2 Advent Blog Hop as well as the Alexandra Renke online shop.
