Hi Altenew friends, it's Jaycee! For the February 2023 Stamp Collection, Altenew released Ensembles. This is an exciting way to build your crafty stash depending on your needs and budget. There are even more combinations to mix and match what you already own with newer items. Finding complete bundles is easier than ever with ensembles.
Not sure what the difference is between the ensembles and the other bundles on Altenew.com? Watch my Perfect Pairings with Jaycee to see how they are an exciting addition to the Altenew shop!
Crafty Ensemble Basics
The Patchwork Motifs Ensemble contains three crafty items:
The Delicate Floral Motifs Hot Foil Plate is available as a stand-alone hot foil plate. This means you can pair the hot foil plate with other items in your Altenew stash, even if you do not have the Patchwork Motifs Complete Bundle.
On the above card, I used the Delicate Floral Motifs Hot Foil Plate with other simple crafty items to make this romantic card.
Patchwork Motifs Complete Bundle
This card uses the Patchwork Motifs Complete Bundle. This means I did not use the Delicate Floral Motifs Hot Foil Plate found in the ensemble. I made a background inspired by the Delftware themes and paired it with tulips, reminiscent of Dutch scenes.
All Together – The Patchwork Motifs Ensemble
To carry on the Delftware theme, I used the traditional blue and white color palette. I love the traditional feel of the daisy tile motif and decided to repeat this image throughout the background. I went through my crafty stash to find this perfect pairing with Itty Bitty Branches Die Set. I thought the floral impressions mimicked the small floral images found within the Delicate Floral Motifs Hot Foil Plate.
I hope you are excited about this new way to browse for new crafty materials. Thank you so much for watching my Perfect Pairings with Jaycee episode on the Altenew YouTube Channel!
