Altenew January 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop...

I have been super excited about this post because I am in love with all things January at Altenew.  I kinda went a tad paper happy and I made like 5 things.  So I am thrilled that you are here today to join us for the Altenew January Hop.  Keep scrolling to see my projects, to learn about the giveaway and to see the full blog list for today's hop.  

Let's get started!  

Here is my first card which showcased the new stamp set called Mini Brownstone....

January Altenew

To create this card, I lined up the genius images to create an easy rainbow line up of Brownstone houses.  I added a stoop to each house in a gray ink.  I stamped "congratulations" in black in across the main image.  This gorgeous sentiment is from the new set called All the Hearts.  I added the front white panel to a light gray card base to finish off the card.  

This next card is super super simple!  I love white space, rainbow colors and easy.  This card is a great mixture of all of the above....

January Altenew

I stamped the envelopes from the new set called Snail Mail, in rainbow colors and then added a tiny light gray copic shadow along each side.  I went in and added the sentiment, which is from the same set, across the bottom in black ink.  

I cut a couple of white panels and added them to a white card base to create this next card...

January Altenew

I added the sentiment along the diagonal and then stamped this gorgeous image from the new set called Stained Glass Window.  I love how all the colors and layers make for such a pretty focal point. This stamp set is amazing!!  So easy to line up and such gorgeous details!

Altenew has come out with a new line of Constellation Die Sets.  I am using the Sagittarius set for this card....

January Altenew

I die cut the small constellation die on this navy blue card front.  I die cut it again in a silver glitter cardstock and laid those stars inside the die cut to create this little sky.  I added the Pastel Strokes Washi to a piece of white card stock and then cut out a strip.  I heat embossed  the sentiment on some vellum and added that to the card.  Altenew Washi is so much fun for adding detail on to card fronts.

Saving my favorite for last.  Garden Picks 3D Die is gorgeous!!  It was so much fun to die cut the pieces and line them up with this being the end result...

January Altenew

I cut a small panel and aded some score lines to the card.  I was able to stamp the "all the love" sentiment from the All the Hearts set right in between the score lines.  I attached the roses and leaves and the popped that panel up on a white card base.  I love that a white card base really makes the floral pop.
