This new release is stunning! I love every single product, and I’m very excited to share my layout with you today. I chose the Simply The Best Stamp Set with coordinating dies. The size of the flowers is perfect for a 12×12 scrapbook layout.

I started by stamping the flowers with a variety of Altenew Crisp Dye Inks:

  • pink flowers: Baby Pink, Fuchsia, Razzleberry;
  • orange flowers: Vanilla Cream, Orange Cream, Firebrick;
  • purple flowers: Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields, Andromeda.

I then cut them with the coordinating dies – the die set includes not only a die for the large flower, but also one for the smaller flower and one for the center, allowing you to build several layers and unique clusters.

I added a floral cut file to the background before arranging all the other elements. This is something I often do, as it brings in an extra layer of interest and softens the look of the page.

I created three clusters, two on opposite corners of the photo and one in the top right area. Everything was adhered down with foam dots.

Last but not least, the sentiments. They come in the same set and are lovely. I stamped three of them on smooth white cardstock and shaped them in a banner shape before adhering them down. A wooden button, orange foliage, and several die cuts from the Live Your Dream collection finished the layout.

Now onto the prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 8/14/2019 for a chance to win.

This is such an amazing release – not only stamp sets and dies, but also stencils and a brand new stamping mat!

You know how much a love flowers, especially Altenew designs, so I couldn’t pass on the Charming Doodles Stamp Set.

The dainty look of this set caught my eye; what I love is the variety of shapes and sizes that allow you to create an interesting and dreamy background.

Here is the layout I created with it; very simple but also delicate and pretty. The doodles in this stamp set are beautiful!

I started by stamping my images on smooth white cardstock. I used the following Altenew Crisp Dye Inks: Chamomile, Sunray, Marigold, Snapdragon, Crimson, Baby Pink, Just Green, and the brand new Obsidian Pigment Ink.

I then created a big cluster on which I placed my photo. I used foam dots to give dimension and layer all my elements. The sentiments are from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection.

I also added some of the stamped images along the right side of the page, just to complete the look. Easy peasy!

Now onto the prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on theAltenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 7/16/2019 for a chance to win.

For my layout today, I combined three products from the new release: Ornate Foliage Stamp Set with coordinating dies, Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set, and Fine Bouquet Die. I couldn’t pick just one, and they look lovely together.

I started by stamping my images from the Ornate Foliage Stamp Set. For the outline, I used Altenew Permanent Black Ink, while for the flowers I went with Eastern Sky, Azurite, Wisteria, Firefly, and Just Green. I also added some yellow with Altenew Artist Marker in Warm Sunshine; I find that it brings in a happy pop of color 🙂 Once those were ready, I continued with the Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set. This time I didn’t add any color, as I liked the black and white contrast.

After arranging my flowers on the background paper, I felt like I needed an extra layer, so I used the Fine Bouquet Die to create sort of a “lace” look. I created two clusters on opposite sides of the page and placed my photo in between.

For the title, I inked the Mega Love die cut with some of the same Crisp Inks I used for the flowers to obtain an ombre effect. Two acetate butterflies and black splatters finished the layout.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 5/15/2019 for a chance to win.
