This purchase was a tentative start to my relationship with ALTENEW. I have been disappointed before with other products. The video demonstration was marvelous. The stamps and stencils all performed better than I expected. So far, I am very pleased with the products and have already ordered an additional stamp set.
I also appreciate the fact that my stamp set and stencils were carefully wrapped and packaged. Thank you for putting the time and resources to that little detail.
This is just what I have been looking for! The perfect birthday sentiments & just one die to cut them all out simultaneously! This is a great set and one I highly recommend. Thanks Altenew!
They're amazing! I've never seen inks even out like this. Put it on paper & next thing you have a perfect blend. I have one third of the entire collection. They never disappoint 🥰
I just love these little hot foil plates. They are so versatile. I can make a background for a card, make a focal for a card or use them to make tags. They are just great!
I love poinsettias for Christmas decorating and this lovely Altenew stamp and die set has helped me create some of the prettiest cards. I can’t wait to mail them out. Another winning set Altenew!
We’ve been using these on our Thanksgiving cards. The repetitive stamping on the background panel has turned out quite lovely. Looks great when watercoloring.
This little snowflake has made such a cute centerpiece for many of my Christmas tags. It’s so pretty and the perfect size for gift tags. I just love it.
Love this stamp that started a long obsession with Altenew!
I adore this embossing folder. It has been the starting point for many baby and children's cards for me. I have had storks flying over the top delivering babies, flying butterflies and birds, I cut the front door and the windows open of the castle and have little animals poking out. This castle just brings me joy.
I love how this frame can give some glamour and character to a simple project. It can fade into the background die cut in white on white card stock or make a focal point die cut in gold or black gloss. The juxtaposition of its small size to the gross magnitude of what baroque glamour exemplifies is what gives this frame its wittiness.
My only regret is that I didn't purchase the matching die, but I am about to remedy that. This is a mid-century style design that stamps and layers wonderfully. Sometimes you need a quick card for someone who appreciates clean modern design and this easily fits the bill.
Complete card from one embossing folder! There are so many techniques that can be done from an embossing folder and finding the perfect one that serves as a focal point for these art driven styles versus a background style can be tricky. This one is perfect for dimension and art techniques.
I try to choose versatility when finding designing tools from companies. Although this was marketed for Christmas it is without season depending on colour choice. I can also see myself using it in an abstract way by using it in non-flora colour ways. With all that being said I am having fun using it for designing for this upcoming 2022 Christmas season.
I was waited too long to buy this stamp set, I don't know why I did. It's wonderful. I like using it over coloured or textured cardstock to get a true tartan wool fabric look.
This background stamp creates a beautiful pinpointed background when stamped as intended or if if stamped twice with card stock turned. It can also be coloured and different patterns can be brought forward. It's a great stamp.
