My favorite Altenew Products are the Artist Markers.

The result I get from coloring with Artist Markers is so smooth and gorgeous. I spend less than half the time on coloring when I use Artist Markers and the result is always so gorgeous. To be honest, I don't pick up my pencils as much as I used to. I reach for my Artist Markers almost all the time.

I am going to cheat and say all the floral stamps. The word dies are so helpful and I love them. Glitter Flurries Washi Tape, Gold Foil Cardstock, Embossing Powders in Antique Gold, Golden Peach, Ink Sprays, Glue Tape, and the Watercolor 36 Pan Set.


My favorite Altenew Product is Persian Motifs Stamp Set.

My love for Altenew started with this stamp set and I've never cheated - Persian Motifs is total love! The art of this stamp set is a huge inspiration itself, I always get a lot of ideas looking at it. Most of all, I love to color these flowers with any coloring medium: markers, watercolors, and pencils.


My favorite Altenew Product is Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set.

This set is absolutely genius and unique. And very versatile. I personally love die-cutting with this set out of a background that I made to add more interest and a "wow" effect. Also, you can use it beyond cards - the letters are big enough to be used in a small home decor project!

My favorite Altenew Product is Bold Alphabet Die Set.

When in doubt, a big bold sentiment is a great 'go-to'! These dies can personalize any design and are perfect for both masculine and feminine cards. They are big enough to color or to add stamping detail and have a modern edgy feel that makes me happy. I really do have to stop myself from using them on every card that I make.

Therese also loves: 

I adore the Build-A-Flower sets, there is so much thought in the designs that are offered and what's not to love when they already contain the coordinating dies. I also find that many of the Cover Dies are a 'must-have' as they make the most fantastic backgrounds and are versatile. I love that they can be used either as focal points or embossed for a more subtle design.


My favorite Altenew Products are Stencils.

I find myself reaching for Altenew stencils whenever I need that extra something special. I love adding dimensions, textures, and shine, Altenew stencils make my imagination run wild. They never disappoint.

Virginia also loves: 

I can't live without Altenew's Ink and Shimmer Spray Mists. I love to create my own color paper and adding spatter effects with these Spray Mists. Altenew Inks are the powerhouse for all color-layering designs.


My favorite Altenew Products are Build-A-Flower Stamp Sets.

Although my current favorite Build-A-Flower Stamp Set is always the one that has most recently been released, my ongoing favorite set is the Build-A-Flower: Cattleya! It's such a beautiful flower to start with and the art of this set captures that beauty wonderfully! It's also so versatile, with the outline stamps for coloring or painting, and the solid, layering stamps for inking. The creative ways to use this set are endless!

Norine also loves: 

To go along with my favorite category, which are stamps - the Build-A-Flower designs in particular, I have to declare my love for Altenew's watercolors for the outline stamps, and the inks (in fantastic 4-shade sets) for the solid, layering images! Something for everyone!


My favorite Altenew Product is the Dearest Friend Stamp & Die Set.

Dearest Friend is one of my favorite sets to work with. I have so many of these images stamped, ready for coloring. I love the sentiments that are in the set as well. My favorite part is that there are leaves as stand-alone images so you can create your own "bouquets." You can make such lovely cards for your dearest friends!

Rubeena also loves: 

I have so many favorite products! I love Altenew's Crisp Dye Inks, the new watercolors, stencils, cover plate dies, word dies, floral layering dies, sentiment sets, and all the floral sets!


My favorite Altenew Products are Washi Tapes.

I kept my choice to a category because I really can't pick ONE washi tape. I LOVE LOVE LOVE them all. Nevertheless, I do have a particular soft spot for the Floral Flurries Washi Tapes. They awaken the English Garden Girl slumbering inside of me. I would love to have wallpaper in my house based on the washi tape designs.

Lilith also loves: 

It is so hard to choose but I love the Beautiful Quotes Stamp Set. I use it so much. Another favorite is the Leaf Canopy Stamp and Die Set. Another product I use all the time as a scrapbooker is the Caps and Bold Alphabet Die Sets. They are perfect for creating custom titles.


My favorite Altenew Product is the Watercolor Wonders Stamp & Die Set.

It's definitely difficult to narrow it down to one product but I chose Watercolor Wonders because it's the easiest stamp in the world to layer. Any way you place the images on top of each other, they will look gorgeous. I also have a soft spot for artistic and abstract looking images. I love how this set is perfect to stamp with any kind of ink as well as other media like watercolors for fun and unique results.

Zinia also loves: 

I'm madly in love with the Artist Markers, they are my top favorite coloring medium ever. I also adore stamps with solid images like Floral Shadow, Floral Fantasy, and Wildflower Garden. Last but not the least, I can't live without the amazing stand-alone dies from Altenew - from the gorgeous layering florals like Rose Flurries 3D Die Set to the amazing and innovative cover dies such as Moroccan Mosaic and Spring Shower.


My favorite Altenew Product is the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.

The Reflection Scrapbook Collection is my favorite product from Altenew because it contains everything I need to document different moments in my life. The paper is fantastic. There isn't a sheet I do not like. It contains different stickers that can be used on different projects. That date roller stamp is an old time favorite of mine. Let's not talk about the box the kit comes in. Just perfect!

Kymona also loves: 

My second love is Altenew's Permanent Black Crisp Dye Ink. I use that ink pad for everything. Next in line is the new Watercolor 36 Pan Set. The colors are delicious and the set is compact and portable.


My favorite Altenew Product is the Inked Flora Stamp and Die Set.

Inked Flora is one of my favorite sets from Altenew. The blossoms and leaves are just perfectly drawn. Just looking at the set makes me happy. I used the stamps on patterned paper; it's such a cool effect. And the sentiments are pretty too. Inked Flora can be used to create awesome floral backgrounds for scrapbook layouts. And it's also great and easy to use for card making.

Sketchy Floral Stamp Set


My favorite Altenew Product is the Frosted Garden Stamp Set.

The Frosted Garden Stamp and Die Set is beautiful and versatile. It can be easily adapted to any type of project for a soft, delicate effect. I love the solid image of the flowers, but also the faded look; great for heat-embossing technique or colorful combinations. The variety of sizes included in the set makes it a must-have.

Enza also loves: 

All the floral sets have that elegant, fine look that I love. Inked Flora Stamp and Die Set, Build-A-Flower Sets, and Stencils are some of my absolute favorites. Last but not least, the stand-alone dies.
