The wreath dye is versatile, and the wreath stamp set will make for quick coloring. The mandala stencil is gorgeous. I'm looking forward to using this kit.
I am brand new to card making and paper crafts. I have spent a good amount of $$ on random and various products, designs and dies and yet, I am artistically challenged to know what to do with all that stuff. I just got my first two Alte&New kits and am thrilled! The amount of product, quality of the dies and stamps and especially the instructions and inspirations are beyond what I expected. I made two beautiful cards within minutes and have inspiration options for more! I am more interested in contemporary and geometric designs, but the flower designs have won me over! They are so modern, artistic and fresh - I’m doing flowers!! I just ordered the ink pads because - I want the Alte & New total look and have no doubt that they will be high quality at a great price. Gosh - I sound like I’m smitten! PS - being a new maker, I did have a bit of trouble figuring out how to position the stamp layers, but eventually I got it. Thankfully, they were labeled in A, B, C order or I would have been totally lost.
I love the virtual class with Jen and learned some helpful tricks for lining up this stamp set. I created some very sweet friendship cards in class and on my own I created a Christmas card! I can see myself using this set many times of the year.
I purchased this because I really liked the Blossom Wreath. It is beautiful. However, even with the guide, it can be difficult to position correctly. I wish Altenew would give some kind of guide directly on the stamp to make positioning easier. When I figured it out, however, the stamped image was lovely. I added some makings to make it easier for me the next time. The stencil is lovely and I will use it for many backgrounds.
There is a lot that comes on the kit for the price. I look forward to using the kit for many projects.
