If you love stamping, this is the set to pick up. No matter how you layer this stamp and how you combined the colors, you will not be disappointed!

For the sentiment, I layered a piece of gold-embossed sentiment on vellum. I love the vellum effect it gives. A few sequins here and there were just the right touches.

You can create all sort of patterns with this stunning set. I took a very simple approach with the stamp and stencil set. I love how the circles are just the right size for this.

I applied Embossing Paste with glitter. This gave such a subtle and yet effective impact.

This card also showcased the new inks! If you love good blue navy ink, the Jewel Tones Crisp Dye Ink Bundle is it!  I also used two soft colors from Frozen Delight

I love all the leafy kind of dies. Altenew has done it again. The simple and modern Tree Mix Die Set  is the ticket to create some clean and simple Christmas cards.

The Color Swatch Stencil set is not just for color swatches. Here I stenciled part of it top for extra pops of colors and interest.

 The sentiment is from the cool Mid Century Festivities Stamp.

Feature products #4: In The Woodland Stamp Die Stencil Bundle, Jewel Tones Crisp Dye Ink Oval Set

Altenew-In The Woodland StampDieStencil Bundle -Jewel Tones Crisp Dye Ink Oval Set-001 

This may be my favorite card  I made for this release. It is totally original and one of a kind.

After stencil-colored the floral images, I did Partial-Die cutting. That is why you see the top part of the white background was completely cut off.

 I then stamped some outlines on top and popped up the image over Kraft Card Stock.

Looks like you read my mind when I saw this release. Love the star flowers card, Color Swatches and the Fancy Star Builder, as well. These new ink colors are right up my alley...icy pastels and rich jewel tones. You've used them so well on all your cards.
