Altenew is the latest stamp company to open its doors to the paper crafting community. The stamps that you will see here will be available for purchase on April 7th (that's this Monday--woot!). You should be coming from Jennifer's blog.
I'm sharing two sets today, the Magnolia and the Figure Effects. First up is the Magnolia:
I used two of the flowers from the Magnolia set and a sentiment from the set. I stamped the flowers on some new Webster's Pages' Our Travels vellum. The background has some simple watercoloring with mists.
Here are some close-ups:
Yep, pretty much swooning over the flowers. The background patterned paper is from the same Our Travels collection.
Next, I made a smaller layout using the Magnolia set and also the super cool Figure Effects set:
I've been liking making Handbook-sized layouts (6"x8")--I got the idea from Emma_KW (what a cool idea, no?). They seem less daunting as a card maker and I like that the albums are smaller.
I stamped the magnolia on linen vellum. All of the sentiments are from the Figure Effects set. I'm going to be using this set constantly--the sentiments are fantastic (and in a good font).
Aren't they the perfect typewriter font? Here's a close-up of the flower from the Magnolia set:
