Now, let me inspire you with some of the cards I made using products from this release...

Queen Anemone Stamp and Die Set


These three cards use several products from Altenew. I like to use new stamps with some in my stash. I want to showcase the beautiful Queen Anemone Stamp and Die Set. Wow, this is a beauty! It's a layering stamp set, and I love these sets because the end result is amazing and it helps me feel like I am a genius! Hahahaha..
The gorgeous swirl backdrop was achieved by die cutting Altenew's Swirl Motif Die
For the  pink card below, I used the Linear Crossroads Die also by Altenew. The background papers are from Altenew's Rock Collection. The sentiments are from Altenew's really useful Fancy Greetings Stamp Set


    Please do not feel intimidate by the Queen Anemone Layering Stamp Set. Altenew are so good at marking the stamp layers to help you.

Also, don't feel the need to always layer in order, or have to do all the layers. Be creative and think what works for you. Altenew are giving you the tools, but you are the one with the creativity to pull a design together!

Tall Foliage Stamp Stamp & Die Set


What can I say...simple, beautiful, elegant, love it! This Tall Foliage Stamp is one of Altenew's outline sets and simplicity is the key with this kind of set, well, I think it is....😁  
Just adding a little colour to compliment the detailed design is the way to go.
On the card above, I added some colour on white cardstock, stamped the image, then added some flowers from Altenew's Adore You Stamp Set.


My second and third designs were created using the Tall Foliage
Stamp and Die Set paired with the super sophisticated Slim Deco Cover Die Set
I know this die set is going to be a greatly used die for me. I love the frame and could not resist doing a slimline card! Teamed with the Tall Foliage, it just seemed the perfect match.




The card you see here behind the slimline is a standard A2 card and you will see the smaller of the Slim Deco Cover Die Set fits perfectly for this, so if slimline is not your thing, then the set works for the traditional size too.


Altenew are offering a free gift promotion to celebrate the release.


Here are THREE ways to get a FREEBIE to kickstart your creativity!

  14. Oh look at those ombre greys. That is so smooth and elegant! I know the fresh cut roses is the "wedding" set of the release but your first card in the queen anemone makes me think of a winter wedding! Really pretty.

  16. The swirl motif die seems made for the anemones. love those gray tones you paired with the pink and the blue. The tall foliage is perfect for those blooms from another set. Very creative mixing and matching. The deco cover dies are a great backdrop for the tall foliage and that shade you chose is very appealing. Thanks for the inspiration.
