I'm absolutely in love with all the new products of this release. Some of my are- Wild Flora Stamp SetIncredible Stamp SetTartan Stamp SetHello and Hugs Stamp & Die Set, among others. Also, in case you want to check out the entire January 2020 "Nature's Beauty" Stamp & Die Release (which you must!) simply CLICK HERE. In addition to all that, Altenew is also introducing the brand-new 3 x 6 Metal Shim which was designed to help you cut in our Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine

"Hello Little Girl" – Scrapbook Layout
For this layout, I decided to feature the Incredible Stamp Set in a bit of a different way. I started by selecting some cardstock from the Altenew Gradient Cardstock Sets and continued by stamping one of the floral images on the different colors of cardstock I selected before. 
Next, I punched holes around the lines and hand-stitched using color coordinating embroidery thread. Following this, I stamped the center part of the flower (anther and filaments) and heat embossed it with the Pure White Embossing Powder and used the center floral piece from the Simply the Best Die Set for all my flowers.

“You Can Do Anything" – Traveler's Notebook
For this project, I used the new Tartan Stamp Set and the Sugar Plums Ink Set to create a fun background which I cut in a diagonal way and adhered to my TN book. I also Included some flowers that I fussy cut from the Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape and used “You Can Do Anything You Put Your Mind To” from the Incredible Stamp Set as my title.

"Hello" – Card
For this card, I used the beautiful Wild Flora Stamp Set and stamped onto watercolor paper and colored using the no-line coloring technique and my Altenew Watercolor 36 Pan Set. I also added some pencil details using my Faber-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils. For the sentiment, I used the Hello and Hugs Stamp & Die Set and adhered it using some foam dots. 

"You are Amazing" – Card
For this card, I used the super detailed Ornate Cover Die, cut it out from white cardstock and adhered to the base panel of the card to add some more texture. Next, I took the Monstera 3D Die Set and paired it with the Mod Vases Stamp Set and created a fun greenery arrangement.


To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners!
