I love all these top items! I have a few on order right now. Can’t wait to receive them and start playing with them! Every item I buy from Altenew I use over and over again and create some of my favourite cards. You are truly a great company. I also can’t believe that you are still shipping out orders with so much COVID-19, and found a way to still give joy to your customers! Thanks you!

Laura P. April 30, 2020 - 2:55 PM

So much beautiful inspiration! Thank you for continuing to share the joy of creating during this stressful time. My sister and niece are both nurses in Syracuse and things have been scary with covid-19 a constant threat. It’s nice to see that despite everything going on throughout our country and the world, that cards can brighten a day now more than ever! I have lots of Altenew flowers so the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan set would be my top pick to complement what I own now and in the future! Love the shimmer and the splatter effect! Lovely cards from all the top sellers!

OH how awesome all these top 10 items are! I have a few which are some of my favorites like the Obsidian pigment ink. Next on my wish list is the Statement flowers (because I think I could make them into (almost) any kind of flower and the metallic water colors….
