Such amazing creativity! It is always interesting to see how they take a stamp or what ever and twist it a bit to really show off the Altenew art work.

Marcia Fellner December 22, 2022 - 12:36 PM

Love the way the designers needed to choose their favorites from the year. They are inspiration all in one place😁

betsgreene December 22, 2022 - 12:53 PM

I love ALTENEW! I am a new card maker, even tho I have several art journals “in progress”… lol. All of your supplies are so incredibly awesome, and they inspire me to take my art one step further every time I receive my new order! Also, the designers teach me so much…if I had to pick a favorite thing, I am having so much fun with all the embossing folders! Oh, and the new inks, and I can’t forget my new gouache set! Thank you for helping me get started on my card making journey! 💜🎄💜🎄💜

Aldrin December 29, 2022 - 3:37 PM

Thanks for sharing, Besgreene! We’re so excited on your card making journey!

Laurie December 22, 2022 - 2:46 PM

You’ve asked the impossible (to pick out one favorite). The craft a flowers are certainly in the running. And the layering die florals. And then you had to release those lucious inks. The list goes on and on.
