This release is amazing. Not only new beautiful stamps and coordinating dies, but also a mini die cutting machine that is sure to make your heart skip a beat 😉

Here is the perfect description for it:

Our Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine is the compact and portable must-have tool for your craft room!  It is designed to work with Altenew dies (sold separately) and other wafer-thin metal dies.  It can be used to quickly and easily die cut a variety of materials, including cardstock and Altenew specialty papers, and will help you add texture and dimension to your projects. The elegant and clean design will look wonderful on your craft desk, secured on its stable base with suction feet.

My project for today includes the gorgeous Flower Arrangement stamp set and coordinating dies, and the Brush Alpha Die set.

I absolutely love the variety of flowers included in this stamp set. Different sizes and shapes make for a more natural look. To start, I prepared the flowers, for which I used the following Altenew Crisp Inks:

For the blue flowers: Sea Breeze, Turquoise, Starlight
For the coral flowers: Blush, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry
For the pink flowers: Pink Diamond, Puffy Heart, Pinkalicious
For the purple flowers: Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Midnight Violet
For the center of the flowers: Mango Smoothie, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee

Next, the leaves, with these shades of green: Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, Evergreen

The Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine made it easy and faster to cut everything up. I scattered flowers and leaves around a cut file that served as my background. The patterned paper is from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection.

I placed the photo in the lower right portion of the cut file, in between the two clusters of flowers. Right across from the photo, the title, for which I used the new Brush Alpha Die Set. I love the font and the size of the letters! I adhered several cuts of the letters together, to create a more sturdy and raised title.

To finish, I just added some wooden butterflies from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection.
