Altenew December 2018 Stamp Release Hop...

Welcome to the December 2018 Altenew Release Hop!  I am so happy to be joining the girls at Altenew this month to share some amazing new stamps and dies.  Throughout this post, you will be able to see my 3 samples using new stamps, a giveaway and at the bottom, there is a full list of stops on this hop!  

First up, a card using the new Nature Snippets Stamp set, along with the Mega Greetings 3 stamps and Friend die....

Altenew

Using the Nature Snippet set, I created a fun background in spring colors.  I did a little ink blending a piece of cardstock so my reds would match and then die cut the friend sentiment.  I cut a little banner and stamped the "For My" from the Mega Greetings set.  To finish off this card, I added some clear rain drops for a fun little detail.

I used Nature Snippets again for this clean and simple card...

Altenew

This was super easy and quick to create.  Stamping the gorgeous circle image in the background and then adding the sentiment on top, makes for a fast card!

Altenew

For this last card, I wrapped a light gray card base and wanted to keep going with the gray theme, so I decided to create the flowers in gray with little pops of red in the center...

Altenew

I popped up the card front panel onto the card base and then added in the darker gray thank you die cut.  This new set is called Ruffled Flowers and it is definitely one of my new favorites!  These flowers are gorgeous and so easy to stamp!
