Altenew Exotic Garden Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Exotic Garden Full Release Bundle 

Hello! Super excited to be part of the Altenew Exotic Garden Stamps/Dies/Stencils/Embossing Folders Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway! I have the full blog hop list at the end of this post.

There are so many beautiful stamps in this release, it was difficult to choose what to create with first. I have 6 projects to share with you today, so let's get going! I've been super busy with family emergencies and new I'm keeping things short in the descriptions of the cards.

First up is the Enchanting Beauty Stamp & Die Bundle, a little hint of a Ginko leaf mixed with a dreamy underwater fine line Zen-tangle look.
To create this look.  
  • I heavily inked the Sweet Dreams Ink collection on a piece of card stock. 
  • Splattered with water and lifted some of the ink off with a paper towel. 
  • Stamped several images of the Enchanting Beauty Stamp Set and heat set the panel. 
  • Dusted the panel with anti-static powder and heat embossed the largest image in WHITE EP as the focal point. 
  • Stamped the sentiment and heat embossed with Clear EP
  • trimmed the panel down
  • Stamped a complimentary matting with a smaller leaf image from the set
Love the Henna looking images in the Painted Rainbow Stamp Set

I Die-cut the stenciled images and popped them up with Instant Dimension Tape for this next card featuring the gorgeous Bitterroot Flower Layering Stencil. Embellished with the newest Slimline washi tape collection.

Faux Letter pressed ROSE GOLD Heat embossed Beautiful Baroque 3D Embossing Folder...Ink blended in lusciously purple Crisp inks and added splatter.


Taking the Decorative Florals 3D Embossing Folder to a new level by coloring the raised elements with Artist Markers, then cutting the blooms out and popping them up with Instant Dimension Tape.

SO inspired by the the lovely packaging of the Instant Dimension Tape, I created this last card using the Blooming Tulips Stamp & Die Bundle, a super easy layering set.

Wonderful project shares featuring the release. I like the color and mix for the first one.

Oh my gosh, I was noticing so many things as I scrolled through your amazing cards. I especially like how you made layers of flower, and used a slightly different color for the one in the back. HOW COOL THIS LOOKS>I am going to look at all of them again.
