I think your designers have outdone themselves with this absolutely sensational release. The floral images are the best in the industry and I particularly appreciate the long stems you provided with the Playful Blooms stamp set. In addition to the lovely floral images, I also love the hand scripted font used for many of the sentiments. It adds such personality to every card!

Linda F October 12, 2018 - 08:09

What a fabulous release. It is hard to pick a favourite. I always love any Altenew floral but I must say I’m really loving the potted plants and the massive classic alphabet dies – so many uses.

LESLIE MILLER October 12, 2018 - 09:18

I am so inspired each time UPS brings me new stamps/dies byAltenew! My brain goes into a frenzy, “what color, which one to try first, what cardstock to use” then i tell myself, “get at it girl, just create and have fun”. And I do!!!

Rebecca Carder October 12, 2018 - 09:34

What’s not to love.

Eileen Blodgett October 12, 2018 - 09:57

Wow, just wow. I am always in awe of the new products. Wish I could afford everything I want but now I’ve added more to my Christmas wish list for my family to get me. Thanks for the new products video as well.

CoyKoiCrafting October 12, 2018 - 10:03

Wow! All these projects are super inspiring. I’m loving this new release ?

Rachel Co October 12, 2018 - 10:05

Beautiful designs as always! Just some suggestions. The pacing of the video is a bit too fast. Would love to have some if not all the sentiments read. And would love test cards for each stamp set. Or even just a blank sheet with the main elements stamped out. It’s hard to see the final images just from the wrapped layering guide. Can’t wait to get my hands on more stamps!

Dorthy Barber October 12, 2018 - 10:17

Thanks for all the inspiration, it is hard to pick a favorite.

Renee Drew October 12, 2018 - 10:18

Adore the capital letter die and thankful for you card! Would make marvelous Thanksgiving cards foe individuals.

Karen Wall October 12, 2018 - 10:23

The new release is wonderful! Looking forward to seeing what everyone has done. Beautiful cards on this blog!!

Laura P. October 12, 2018 - 10:32

Lovely release! I have been looking for rhin frames and yours are perfect! The sizes are just what I need! I’m also loving the layered flowers. I recently purchased the Floral Fantasy 3D dies and they are so much fun. Glad to see more! The monograms are wonderful, too!
