This month’s release is full of beautiful and exotic florals! There are a few supporting images, like butterflies (popular again this year across many stamp companies) and paisley. There are some new 3D Embossing Folders (Yea!), slim washi and new swatch decals.
The Enchanting Beauty stamp & die set was just screaming “under the sea” to me! I had to do some ink blending on Lagoon cardstock to give that look of going deeper into the water while embossing the images on Lagoon in Copper embossing powder. I added in a few washi strips from the Sea Shore Slim washi tape set and finished off the watery slimline with some clear water drops.

wabi sabi ginko
The Japanese ideal of Wabi Sabi is so beautiful and inspiring. The art of kintsugi is often associated with it and means finding pleasure in aged and worn objects, and to value their blemishes as beautiful. I wanted to recreate it here with the Sweet Ginko and Carpe Diem stamp sets. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel as I’ll be sharing a video on this project for the Altenew Video Hop later this month!
