I love how these cards turned out! The colour combos are pretty classic, green and kraft, pink and grey. I ink blended the Vintage Garden Stamps after I had embossed the images with white embossing powder. When you do this, always remember to wipe over the images with a paper towel after ink blending. It enables the white of the embossing to show through better.
The images were then popped up on the background which was achieved by cutting the Grid Cover Die in the complimentary cardstock.

Spotted Orchid Stamp & Die Set

I teamed up Spotted Orchid Stamp & Die Set with the Grid Cover Die, also from this release. To add that extra something, I die cut Altenew's Fancy Hello Die from gold cardstock and placed it on a banner to help it pop!

This second card used the same products, but this time the back drop is paper from their 6 x 6 paper pad called Essential Rock These papers are BEAUTIFUL!

Enchanted Roses Stamp Set

I really enjoyed making these cards. I was able to use the Simple Greetings Die Set and Altenew's  previously released Sphere Stencil using such light pretty colours, which I love enabled me to get a really soft design.
One thing I ought to mention is that Altenew have released their own Crafter's Essential Bone Folder!  This is a piece of crafty equipment that is essential when card making (in my humble opinion). Reason, the cheaper versions do not get that beautiful and crisp clean fold fold in the card stock. I have used cheaper versions, but they just do not get that professional finish.
I used it with all of the cards above.
