What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Stampwheel

“The Stampwheel really does give a hands-free experience as you’re blending, which not many products do.” 

- Simon Hurley (Watch more of Simon’s Stampwheel review.)

“I’ve really struggled with the hinged stamping tools because you have to put so much pressure on them to get an even stamp. Plus, the hinge design means there is wiggle room on the tool. The Stampwheel solves both of these problems for me. I love how little pressure it takes to get a clean image and I really like how the acrylic wheel Iocks into place so you know you’re getting the right placement. I am thrilled with this purchase. Thank you Altenew!” 

- E.C.

“Stenciling game changer! This nifty tool has saved my sanity! I have been on a stenciling, and ink blending craze lately, and other methods did not work as well for me. The sticky mat is fantastic! I also love how easy it is to stamp radial designs, wreaths, and layer stamping is a breeze! I have acquired the additional guides which have made the positioning of card panels even easier, particularly when I am not wearing my glasses.” 

- L.O.

2. Next, we have the Ultimate Ink Blending Tool Bundle. If you're a fan of creating gorgeous blended backgrounds, then this bundle is a must-have. It includes everything you need to create stunning color gradients on any paper crafting project!

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Ultimate Ink Blending Tool Bundle

“Great blending brush for small areas. These are great for those hard to get to areas that the bigger brushes can’t manage! They blend without looking streaky or floppy and clean up easily with tap water. I ordered an extra set to keep as a spare!”

- Adrienne Pollack

“Smoothest Blend Ever! I've used a variety of blending tools, and Altenew's are absolutely the best. I get a soft beautiful blend, whether blending a background directly on cardstock, or blending over a stencil. Really do love these blending tools!”

- Kathy Kuehnle

 I have wanted one of these for a long time, finally broke down and bought one and I am so happy I did.”

- T.K. Stephens


A colorful handmade card, a couple of mini stamp sets, and Altenew's Instant Dimension Foam Tape.

3. If you're looking for a way to add some dimension to your projects, then the Instant Dimension Foam Tape is a must-have in your stash. It's perfect for adding layers and creating a 3D effect.

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Instant Dimension Foam Tape

“A cardmaker's staple I'll stick with. This large roll has floral art on the tape backing. The cover art makes a pleasing display or can be up-cycled into a project. While not tearable, using scissors makes it more economical and precise, as you can shape it exactly as you need.”

- Clancy

“Love this foam tape!!! To avoid having too many things out in my crafting space at once, I refrain from opening consumable supplies until I've finished the item currently in use. In this case, I waited FAR TOO LONG! This foam tape has beautiful release paper which releases easily, it has fantastic stickiness and it's so reasonably priced... I purchased two rolls during a sale and will be back for more when I'm down to one!

- Leslie Justiniani

I was very impressed with the quality, and beauty of the foam tape. Beauty? Yes! I have never seen foam tape that is packaged with such care and purpose. The beautiful cardboard on both sides of the tape makes it pretty, but it also keeps any sticky edges from picking up unwanted stuff like glitter or paper snips that seem to always be on my surfaces. The quantity of the tape is amazing. I won't be running out for a long time. Even the tape liner is beautiful. But most of all, it's a great foam tape!”

- Barbara L Goetz


A cute and colorful handmade card with Altenew fruit-themed stamps and dies, and Altenew scoring board for cardmaking.

4. The Crafter's Essential Scoring Board is another must-have for any crafter. It's perfect for creating crisp folds and precise score lines. And it’s one of Jennifer McGuire’s Favorite Crafting Products

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Crafter's Essential Scoring Board

I really like the Altenew scoring board because of the size. It’s also got a good price point, and the tool it comes with is different. It has a stylus tip on it which is really fun for techniques!”

- Jennifer McGuire (Watch her video review here.)

“I love this scoring board. The fact that an 8 ½ inch by 11 inch piece of paper fits onto the board is wonderful. No more stopping to turn the paper around to finish scoring!”

- Laura McPherson

“A must have! A sleek and functional addition to the crop/travel craft bag. I own 2 other bigger scoring boards that are too much of a hassle to travel with, this is a must have if you craft on the go or travel to craft retreats/ crops.”

- Liz O.

“Perfect size! Big enough for scoring A2 cards but not so big as to take up too much space on my work table. I was watching for a sale and snatched it up.”

- Kim


A motivational handmade card with heat-embossed and watercolored floral images, made with Altenew stamps and watercolor brush markers.

5. The Ultimate Watercolor Brush Markers Bundle is a basic crafting tool for anyone who loves watercolor. These markers are perfect for creating beautiful washes and adding colorful details to your cardmaking projects.

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Ultimate Watercolor Brush Markers Bundle

“Beautiful Pigment! I'm very impressed with how beautiful the pigment and flow of these brush markers are! They also would be great for traveling and I'm excited to take them on my next trip!”

- Mallery Jane

“Utterly AMAZING! These watercolor brush makers make a tin of watercolor cakes and a stubby paint brush a thing of the past! Easy to hold, use and the pigment is so rich and bold. I haven’t completed a card yet but I LOVE these!”

- Denise M.

“Love these brushmarkers! How did I craft without these? The brush works on its own with more saturated color and you can squeeze some out on a mat to mix with water for a true watercolor effect. I love them and highly recommend them!”

- Jen Arlen


A pink and red monogram card with the letter A and a 3D embossed background, made with Altenew stamps, dies, and 3D embossing folder.

6. The Mega Alphabet Ultimate Die Bundle is perfect for creating custom titles, banners, monograms, and sentiments. With 26 dies (from A to Z) included in the bundle, the creative possibilities are endless!

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Mega Alphabet Ultimate Die Bundle

“I have immediately created a holiday banner for the holiday - beautiful fonts, plain simple and classic. Now how to find time to (get) more craft done? Come on Altenew, you can make a time machine (that extends time), I’m waiting! In regards to the fonts, I need to experiment with fabric next.”

- Beatrice Ring

There’s no end to what you can do with this alphabet. I’ve not had it too long, but have already made gift sets of note cards for friends and they LOVE them. I’m looking forward to making other projects using this set. They’re the perfect size for what I wanted.”

- Jill

“Excellent purchase! I am so delighted to own the entire set of alphabets. I can’t wait to use them. I have several projects in mind, like banners and personalized cards. I absolutely love the quality of the dies.” - Terri Agnew

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Sparkling Twilight and Sparkle & Dazzle Glitter Gradient Cardstock Bundle 

“Just the right size for die cutting and a wonderful range of colors to fit all your sparkly needs.”

- Terri S. 

Glitter, but no mess! I bought this gradient glitter cardstock to use with the mini heart balloon die. Can’t wait to put these sparkly balloons all over the birthday pages in my grandkids’ albums. All this pretty sparkle of gorgeous colors without a glitter mess.

- Carolyn H.

“Great for Die-cuts! This sparkly, beautiful paper is not only good for die cutting, it's much cleaner and neater than loose glitter, I don't find pieces of it in my car 3 months later and wonder. "How'd that get there?" LOL.”

- Dianne Yount


A set of handmade cards created with Altenew tulip stamps and dies on top of the Altenew Stampwheel.

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Build-A-Garden: Tulips & Friends

“Fun and interesting sentiments! This set has lots of fun and interesting sentiments for making greeting cards to crafty friends or self-motivated art journals. I love it and highly recommend it.”

- Helen Liu

“This set is amazing. So many possibilities for awesome cards. I am very close to my cousin and this is the first stamp set I have seen for cousins. The crafting friends stamps are perfect for the ladies I crop with.”

- Debra Watkins

I love the floral images on Altenew cards, but these sentiments are the really useful part. There are 17 of them and all of them are totally appropriate for all my friends. They are encouraging and kind. Just what I want for my friends.”

- Karen Pancoast


2 identical handmade cards with different color schemes, created with Altenew stamps, dies, inks, and enamel dots.

9. The Prismatic Enamel Dots Bundle is great for adding a touch of color and dimension to your projects. These enamel dots come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes, so you can mix and match them to create your own unique designs.

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Prismatic Enamel Dots Bundle

“I am so addicted!! A few of these add so much to cards and scrapbooking pages. You definitely can’t go wrong with these!”

- Diana J.

“I'm an unofficial enamel dot cheerleader and love the little bit of something extra they bring to card fronts. I particularly like the Altenew line as each purchase comes with dots in multiple shapes, sizes, and colors. That the dots match Altenew's paper and ink lines is a big plus--no more searching for coordinating bling!”

- Pamela T.

“Perfect high quality dots for my stash”

- Cindy M.

“I do like Altenew enamel dots because first they come in beautiful colors ... second they are flat-ish so make for easy mailing ... Third, they are self-sticking.”

- Sue Wisniewski


A beautiful floral handmade card created with Altenew stamps, dies, and Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine.

10. If you're in the market for a new die-cutting machine (or an addition to your die-cutting collection *wink wink*), then the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine is definitely worth considering. It's compact and easy to use, but still packs a punch when it comes to die-cutting.

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine

“Great Purchase! I was hesitant about getting the mini die machine since I already owned a regular sized one. But I saw it being used in many videos from a sitting position - that’s what won me over. I started using it right away. The smaller crank handle is easy to turn, the suction cups underneath it keep it level & steady. It cuts cleanly. And I can enjoy my time crafting cards without constantly getting up & down out of my chair.

- Susan Haley

“Best tool in my craft room! I wish I would have bought this sooner. I absolutely love it. 99% of my dies work in it and it produces quality cuts every. single. time. Thank you Altenew for yet another quality product!”

- T.H.

“Since I've become a card maker, my supply and tool purchases have begun taking over every empty spot. Storage is at a "premium" in my craft room! But this small die cutting machine sits right on my workspace looking cute and is there doing a great job when I need it. When I need a quick small cut, it's easy to reach for and get the job done so I can get my card finished. I love my big die cutting machine too, but this little guy makes the process a lot quicker and easier.”

- Joy O'Connor


A cute Christmas card with a fox stamp image and a watercolor wash background with splatters, created using Altenew stamps, dies, watercolors, and ink sprays.

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Complete Ink Spray Bundle

“Love these sprays. All go on evenly and are beautiful colors. Haven’t even had any trouble with the sprayer getting clogged!

- Mary

I am so glad that I got these sprays when I did (on sale), however I would have bought them anyway. They are the best!”

- Daregirl

“I was looking for a good black ink to use for splattering ink on backgrounds. This works great when applying with a paint brush, which I feel gives more control. The color is crisp and the results are beautiful!

- Trish Sellers


Altenew glue tape, foam tape, double-sided tape, masking tape, and masking paper for easy card making and paper crafting.

12. The Ultra Sticky Tape Complete Bundle is another must-have for any crafter. This tape is perfect for adhering even the most stubborn materials.

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Ultra Sticky Tape Complete Bundle

“Love this stuff! No more lumps from glue sticks, no more spread from pen applicators, no more blank spots from tape runners. This stuff is great for double-sided metallic cardstock which seems to repel other adhesives, great for the high/low surfaces of glitter cardstock which doesn't fully grab an adhesive, and great for carrying the weight of embellishment clusters which are too heavy for other adhesives. Did I mention how great it is?”

- Pamela T.

“I am actually enjoying this double sided tape. I have been able to cut and tear it easily. It also has a very good hold. It is a quality option for shaker windows and things requiring a tape adhesive.”

- Wessoma

“This tape is sticky! This tape is really sticky! Great for strongly adhering my warped watercoloring to a card base.”

- Claudia Anderson


2 freehand watercolor cards made with Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set and watercolor paint brushes.

What Your Fellow Crafters Are Saying About the Watercolor 36 Pan Set

“Beautiful Creamy Colors! I must confess I’ve had these for a while but haven’t played with them until recently and Oh, gosh, they are the creamiest, most beautiful colors! Having fun with them! It only takes a drop of water and just seconds to activate these - I’m in love! Perfect to bring to the beach house.”

- Annette F.

“Great watercoloring set! Love this watercolor set and I even bought an extra set for my daughter, who also loves to watercolor. The colors are so vibrant. It is a little bit pricey but well worth the money. The color selections are great for coloring flowers.The colors go on smooth and make watercoloring so easy. It also comes with its own refillable watercolor brush. The colors can be easily removed as well. This set makes it so easy to get great watercoloring results.

- Cammy

I am new to watercoloring and this set has made my first experience with it a fun one. The colors are rich and beautiful! The brush with the water attached makes it really easy to use. Thanks, Altenew.”

- Becky Turner

Great value and colors. Love the quality and the color variety. They are smooth to work with and the pearl powder especially creates a beautiful effect. What a great value!!!

- Ceil N.

I always struggle with heat embossing small lettering but not with this. I was elated when more colors finally came back in stock. If you love doing heat embossing fine detailed sentiments, this is the powder to get.”

- Glenda Schoonmaker

Every card maker needs a good, white embossing powder in their stash & this one is a great one to have. Altenew products are top of the line.”
