Hello, there! Welcome to Altenew Exotic Garden Collection Release Blog Hop + Giveaway. The new release is full of awesome products for all types of paper crafts. From washi tapes to detailed stamp sets, for sure you will find a new favorite in the release. Let's take a look at the collection.
Check our new Stamps, Dies, Stencils, Embossing Folders, Washi Tapes, and Decals here.
Check out this quick unboxing of our newest release, and imagine all its creative possibilities. You can watch the video in HD on YouTube here.
The focus of my projects today is clean and simple cards with a touch of texture. Let's get started.
The inspiration for my first card is the Enchanting Beauty Stamp & Die Bundle. First, I am using Mixed Media inks to achieve the monochromatic look of the elements. Then I added shine and texture from heat embossing the images with Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder.
The sentiments in the new stamp sets are sweet and easy to mix and match to fit your project. This card features from the Painted Rainbow Stamp Set and Blooming Tulips Stamp Set. Just a few crystals complement the card.
For my second project, I am combining the Sweet Ginkgo Simple Coloring Stencil and Sweet Ginkgo Stamp Set to create the card. First, I added a bit of color using mixed media inks. Then, I heat embossed the leaves with Platinum Crisp Embossing Powder.
A few strips of the new Sea Shore Slim Washi Tape Set provide the perfect spot for the sentiment. Sometimes, simple sentiments (Simply Spring Stamp Set) become focal points with some fussy cutting! Try it in your next project.
This is probably one of my favorite cards for this year! The detail in the new Dovetail Butterflies Stamp & Die Bundle is exquisite (and it is a layering stamp!!!). My choice to create texture and dimension for the card just adds to the ethereal look of the background. The final touch was a combined sentiment and a trail of gems. You can see this card come together in the following video. Watch it here, or in HD in Altenew's YouTube channel.

Beautiful! Love your inspiring ideas too😁
Lots of “must haves” in this release!
Another fabulous relese! Really love the ginkgo leaves!
these new dies/stamps are right up my alley. I love flowers and leaves. Ginkgo leaves are some of my favorites! All so beautiful, full of detail.
Hmm I do not see the unboxing video. Is it not up on YT yet?
Love the Ginko leaves especially. So pretty.
The new release is fantastic. And I love the gorgeous inspiration cards.
I just watched Vicky P’s blog using the new Tropical Stamp set and the banana leaves 3D folder. I was blown away. Having been a florist for many, many years, I love the tropicals…the foliage, the hanging haliconia, ginger. The colors are exciting and fresh. The flower shapes are a world away from the roses, lilies, iris, etc, that make up our world in the majority of the contiguous US. Thank you for these great new additions to your line.
Love the new stamps and embossing folders just wish I could afford to buy all of them.
You have several beauties in the May release. Simply Spring, WOW! Bitterroot, LOVELY!
What a wonderful release! Love the cards by Nathalie.
Thanks for sharing.
Fabulous new release! I love the embossing folders! Great inspiration!
Gorgeous butterflies & I love that you’ve created gingko leaves.
Wow, this is a huge release and so many pretty things. Looking forward to seeing the designers’ samples.
The release looks amazing. I love what you have done with texture and your first card is very appealing and dreamlike with that color but I am a sucker for gingko leaves too. Thanks for the inspiration
Beautiful projects and products! Love the butterflies and Ginkgo leaves. 🙂
Beautiful, elegant butterflies.
Lots of pretty new things here!!
So excited for this release!!!
Beautiful as always. I love the Enchanted Beauty, so many ideas of how to use it!
Another great release that has so many possibilities!
What a beautiful new release! I especially love the ‘leaves’ embossing folders.
Your products are always beautiful, but beyond my budget. However I don’t know if I can resist the Exotic Garden!
Thank you for more beautiful stamps and embossing folders!
Such a Beautiful Release! Wow!! Thanks, Altenew!!! Denise
Such a great and diverse release, and love your card examples. Your monochromatic card is my fave, but I also enjoyed watching you create the butterfly card! Thanks for sharing, and now off to hop!
So excited about this new release!
