Let's get down to the projects, so you can get a quick peek of this release.

First up, we have the intricate Henna Square Stencil. Whether you use a part of or the entire stencil, you will add some amazing patterns to your projects.

Altenew-Henna Square Stencil-Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set-PAF Clematis

If you love a delicate look without tons of effort, this stencil does not disappoint.

Altenew-Henna Square Stencil-Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set-PAF Clematis -002

I started out with a piece of white cardstock. After positioning the stencil, I inked it up with various colors. I then gave it a spray with Iridescent Shimmer Ink Spray. Altenew-Henna Square Stencil-Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set-PAF Clematis -001

Not only does this spray give it a gorgeous shine, but it also tones down the colors a notch. I thought it was a tad too bright at first! The sentiment from Paint-A-Flower: Clematis Outline Stamp Set was embossed onto the vellum paper. I topped it off with a butterfly from Mix & Match Mariposa Die Set and Antique Gold Sequins.

The next card is featuring the Greenwood Flowers Stencil Set with the sentiment from Bouquet of Love Stamp Set.

Of course, the Altenew Ink Blending Tool makes all the stenciling easy. The colors blend like butter!

If you have not yet tried color layering stencils, this new Greenwood Flower Stencil Set will amaze you! It has two large flowers and you can customize your own colors!

In this card, I used two different colors for each flower. The leaves are so detailed and interesting thanks to the layering.

My next card is definitely unique and eye-catching. The Charming Mandala 3D Embossing Folder is absolutely glorious.

I took out the Jet Black Cardstock and ran it through with Charming Mandala 3D Embossing Folder.

I then painted the dry-embossed surface with the Metallic Watercolor 14 Pan Set (Gold Pearl, Enchanted Gold, Rose Quartz, Aquamarine, and Jade).

The last card I share is a sweet and a cozy one.

Altenew-Dreamy Tile 3D Embossing Folder-Tea For Two Stamp & Die Bundle (2) The Dreamy Tile 3D Embossing Folder reminds me of French country decor. I thought it was perfect to pair it up with Tea For Two Stamp & Die Bundle.

To add the blue color on the tile, I chose the mini ink cube (such as Deep Blue) and gently touched all of the surface. You can use a piece of hard craft foam for this purpose.

The tea set was stamped all in the same shades of blue to keep the theme cozy and cohesive.
