I love all AlteNew products. I have most of the sets and like the versatility they offer. This set, for example, can be used to create a flower design with wonderful depth and detail or a background leaf design. The matching dies allow for a whole new design opportunity that allows for further use of the set in different ways. While the stamps work with all inks, Altenew inks are wonderful and give a perfect image every time!
