altenew ornamental flower

Are you ready for a fun blog hop? We are celebrating the latest release by Altenew with amazing products once again. Hop along with us for tons of inspiration and lots of giveaways along the way.

You should have arrived here from the Altenew Scrapbook Blog. If you want you can start the blog hop from the beginning here Altenew Card Blog If you want to see a close-up to the whole collection I have a separate blog post with a video HERE.

Here is the card that I made using products from the latest release.

Isn’t this flower just stunning? It’s from the Ornamental Flower Stamp Set ( ALTN ). So unique! And look at all the detail and depth that you can achieve by stamping all the layers.

I love layering stamping, it gives me great results in minutes. Perfect for when you need a gorgeous card and you don’t have the time to color for hours with your pencils or markers. I combined the flower with the Cube Cover Die ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ) and the “hugs” sentiment from the Script Words Die Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS )

  67. OMG your card is stunning!!! The colors are so vibrant and that background just makes it a masterpiece. Well done!

  68. Wow I love the card. You’ve made the layering look easy. I find it hard to do layering for some reason. ☹. I never know if to go from dark to light or full layers to partial layers first.

Xxx ? xxx

  71. The card is beautiful – I just love that flower and the inks are so vibrant. Just a lovely card with amazing new products!

  72. Gorgeous, I just purchased my first Altenew stamps and can’t wait to create something that hopefully is as easy as you demonstrated.

  74. Somehow I missed this stamp set while watching sneak peeks from Creativation, so these flowers totally took me by surprise. And what a delightful surprise they are! I love all the delicate details, and they look fantastic in the new inks. Also, I love the tone-on-tone background you put on your card, but with so much dimension. That’s a lot of tiny pieces of foam tape!! Thanks for sharing your beautiful creations with us.

  75. I am new to Altanew and just purchased the Peony Dream Flower Die set. Absolutely love it! Am anxious to make more purchases as time goes by. The youtube videos have certainly be a big help in learning how to put the pieces of the Peony together. Thank you for the chance to win a prize!

  79. Your flower card is stunning! I like how you put all those white dots on it. Kathy Racoson is always doing that, adding things that aren’t on the stamp. I should try doing that too.

Thank you also for giving us the chance to win something.
