Now, onto my NEW FAVORITE products from Altenew....

I have always loved roses so any stamp set with roses will most definitely be finding it's way into my craft room! 

I immediately fell in love with the Craft-Your-Life Project Kit: Garden Rose when it was released a few months ago. The monthly kits are such great value for money. If you are interested in subscribing to this kit, you can find all the details here  https://shrsl.com/3bic7

Each kit contains an outline stamp set, matching dies, a 3D embossing folder and the co-ordinating stencils to colour the images. This gives you heaps of options for creating lots of different cards from one set.

If you would like to just purchase the Garden Rose kit, you can find it here  https://shrsl.com/37ay5

I knew I had to schedule a virtual class which would feature this kit. Here are the two fancy fold cards we created in the class. 

The first card is called a Bendy Card. I decided to demonstrate how you can use a floral stamp set to create a Christmas/holiday themed card.

My second card is called a Tunnel Card. I used the 3D embossing folder on each side and ink blended over the raised parts of the embossed image to enhance and colour the flowers and leaves. Some patterned paper was added to the back of the tunnel.
