Here are the Designer Shops we have currently available:“Like so many of you, I couldn’t pick just one product as my most favorite from Altenew. Instead, I wanted to highlight some of my favorites from across the many ranges that Altenew offers.

Some of my favorite layering stamps are the Sunflower Daisy Stamp Set and the Grateful Heart Stamp Set which offers an outline image as well, for more design options. The Wallpaper Art Stamp Set is another favorite to color in, and the Artist Markers and Watercolor Pan Sets are a perfect pairing. The Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine is always at hand as well as the Jet Black Ink Spray which makes splatters a breeze.” – Ashlea Cornell

“My favorite Altenew Products are the Artist Markers. The result I get from coloring with Artist Markers is so smooth and gorgeous. I spend less than half the time on coloring when I use Artist Markers and the result is always so gorgeous. To be honest, I don’t pick up my pencils as much as I used to. I reach for my Artist Markers almost all the time.

I also love all the floral stamps and word dies. Here are some of my favorite Altenew products: Glitter Flurries Washi TapeGold Foil Cardstock, Embossing Powders in Antique Gold and Golden PeachInk SpraysGlue Tape, and the Watercolor 36 Pan SetVisit HERE to check out my cards featuring Altenew products.” – Erum Tasneem

“My favorite Altenew product is the Reflection Scrapbook Collection Kit. The papers are full of color, yet very elegant. I love creating different items with this collection. I’m a traveler so the stickers are perfect for my traveler’s notebook and planner. Although this collection is the oldest one, I reach for it more than the others. 

Scrapbooking wouldn’t be fun without sentiment stamps, dies, and watercolors! Here are a few of my favorites: New Me Stamp SetThank You Builder Stamp SetBe Kind Stamp SetMega Greetings 4 Stamp SetJust Because Builder Stamp SetMini Hello Stamp SetCrafty Friends Stamp SetBad Days Stamp SetBeautiful Quotes Stamp SetWatercolor 36 Pan Set and Mega Thank You Die Set.” – Kymona Tracey

“My favorite Altenew products are the Altenew Floral Stamp Sets. Coloring these stamps with an array of coloring tools makes for stunning projects that anyone can enjoy. Altenew colors coordinate across mediums, so I know I can depend on the Artist Markers to match perfectly with the Crisp Dye Inks on my cards.

The Altenew shop is all encompassing; I can find exactly what I need to create cards. Besides stamps, my favorite tool is the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine for its small profile. I reach for the Jet Black Ink Spray often for perfect splatter embellishments. You can watch me play with Altenew products every week on the ‘Perfect Pairings with Jaycee‘ video series on the Altenew Channel.” – Jaycee Gaspar

“It was so hard to narrow down my Altenew favorites because their products lend so nicely to my clean and simple style. One of my favorite stamp sets is Weekend Doodles. I love how the blooms can be left black and white, create an amazing background, or even work as a simple focal point. For the same reason, I love the Floral Art Stamp Set with its gorgeous big blooms. Altenew’s Oval Ink Pads are also at the top of my list. I love that they come in sets of 4 and their endless layering possibilities. Along with all the gorgeous colors, Obsidian Pigment Ink is most definitely my favorite black ink!

Other favorites include Classy Stripes StencilWatercolor Stripes Cover DieTall Alpha Stamp SetBeach Towel Stripes StencilAntique Roses Stamp SetStory of Us Stamp SetJust Because Builder Set, and Bamboo Rose Stamp Set.”- Laurie Willison

“My favorite Altenew product are Washi Tapes. I can’t choose a particular one as I love them all. They are so versatile and can be used to create backgrounds or embellishments. 

I shouldn’t forget to mention some of my go-to items such as the Floral Shadow Stamp Set, the Halftone Hearts Nesting Die Set and the Mix and Match Mariposa Die Set. Products that never leave my crafting table are also the Watercolor Brush Markers, the Acrylic Block Set and the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine.” – Lilith Eeckels

“I am a huge fan of Altenew! Their diversity, elegance, and awesome innovative products are my favorite and always keep me inspired to create something new. It is really hard to only choose one favorite product, but I would say the Floral Stamp Sets are always a favorite of mine. My favorite stamps include – Beautiful DaySunflower DaisyGarden TreasureAntique Roses, and Poppy Garden.

I also love to work with the awesome line of Crisp Dye InksObsidian Pigment Ink for detailed images, and what would I do without the Watercolor 36 Pan Set and Watercolor Brush Markers?

I love all their diverse products as they keep inspiring me to create beautiful keepsakes for my memories. It is so hard to narrow the catalogue to a few favorites, but the Watercolor 36 Pan Set is probably one of my most used and must-have products in my collection. The colors, consistency, and quality of the watercolors is superb and allows me to create my background, color my images, and add those special touches to my pages.

Altenew offers so many products to feed your creativity, but I am always reaching for the Obsidian Pigment Ink to detail sentiments and images, the Bold Alphabet Die Set and Classic Alphabet Die Set to create my titles. And then there are the stamps; some of my most favorite are: Weekend DoodlesWallpaper ArtGrateful HeartAntique RosesPrecious Peony, and Leaf Canopy. You can visit here to see some of my projects created using Altenew products.” – Nathalie DeSousa

“Among all the techniques out there, stamping is my absolute favorite. Products that satisfy my passion make my top list. My most loved are realistic layering stamps. I especially love floral sets. But I cannot live without mentioning a couple of non-floral sets which I particularly love: To the Moon and Rain or Shine. The Crisp Dye Ink Sets are perfect for layered stamping – they’re my favorite color product. They stamp and blend beautifully. Caps Bold Alphabet is my all-time favorite die set. It has so much potential. I love many sentiment dies and use them quite often.

Also, I love many Altenew paper products, especially their washi tapes (my favorites are Teal Shadow and Botanical Rhapsody), Parchment Cardstock, and Specialty PaperBirch WoodCherry Wood, and Gold Mirror Cardstock. Click HERE to see my projects featuring Altenew supplies.” –Svitlana Shayevich

“When Altenew released the Versatile Vases Stamp Set with the Coordinating Dies and Mask Stencil, I got so excited! It’s the perfect addition to all of their beautiful floral stamps and it quickly became a favorite of mine. And… if I had to narrow it down to which flowers I would add to the vase, my 2 current go-to floral sets are the Beautiful Peony Stamp Set and the Poppy Garden Stamp Set. They are both very beautiful and such fun to color.

As for adding color, Altenew is all over it! They now have matching Gradient Cardstocks alongside the Artist MarkersCrisp Dye InksWatercolor Brush Markers and Watercolor Pan Sets, and I enjoy using all of these to achieve different looks with my stamps and dies.

There are too many to list, but here is a quick list of my ‘everyday’ favorite Altenew products: Glue TapeObsidian Pigment InkMini Blossom Die Cutting MachinePale Gray CardstockJet Black Ink SprayPure White Ink SprayGreen Fields Enamel DotsEssential Black & White 6×6 Paper PackFancy Hello DieTall Alpha Die Set, and I certainly couldn’t leave out the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die (that would have been remiss of me, lol). You can see my Take 2 with Therese videos featured on the Altenew Youtube Channel here.” –Therese Calvird

“My favorite Altenew tool is the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine. This little machine cuts all the floral images perfectly every. single. time. and it sits beautifully on my desk. Using cover dies such as the Dotted Swirls Debossing Cover Die makes my projects look polished and elevated. I also love the Crystal Frames Dies and String Art Rectangles Die because of the perfect cut lines and how they offer lots of possibilities. As for coloring, I tend to reach for Altenew’s Watercolor Brush Markers as they make watercoloring fun.

My favorites stamps include: Antique RosesFloral Art, and A Study in Watercolor. Lastly, it is all about the ink. Fond Appreciation Oval Ink BundleCandy-Coated Oval Ink Bundle, and Forever Grateful Oval Ink Bundle are the ones that I cannot ink without. They are of the best colors and finest quality. The Pigment Ink Bundle is another must-have!  Visit HERE to check out my cards featuring Altenew products.” –Virginia Lu
