Altenew January Release Blog Hop

Hello friends!
Are you ready for a very exciting stamping event!?
Altenew has a NEW release (see here)! 
Please come join me with a super fun blog hop and enjoy some serious eye candy!
You may have come from the sweet and talented Laura Bassen's blog. If so, you are in the right stop. If not, let's get the hop started!
s
Altenew is releasing 18 stamp set, 18 die sets and 12 inks today!
For this hop, I have prepared 3 projects to share. This really is just the tip of iceberg since each set can be used in so many creative ways... And there are now with more stamps, dies, inks and now Altenew Artist Markers!!

 Project #1
"Thank you for being my candle in the water"
Altenew New Release (Jan)1

The Lighthouse stamp set is great for so many occasions: masculine birthdays, anniversary, encouragement, thank-you, thinking of you....etc. I love stamping the waves in various shades of blue. This can easily done with the deep-etched wave images.
Altenew New Release (Jan)4
 If you love building scenes, this is a very well thought-out and easy-to-use stamp set.

Project #2 
"with thanks"
Altenew New Release (Jan)2

This card is 100% stamped. The Garden Hydrangea image comes in 4 parts: solid, detailed, sketch and outlines. I personally think that it is incredible to have 4 stamps for one image!

Altenew New Release (Jan)5

 You can use just the outline alone and color the image with your favorite medium. Or, if you like, you can add 2-3 layers! It is also a cinch to line up due to its size. If you love floral laying stamps, Garden Hydrangea is IT! I have many more cards to come with this stamp set on Jan 30th over Altenew! Hope you come check it out then.

Project #3
"plant the seeds of kindness wherever you go"
Altenew New Release (Jan)

 This Farmer's Market set takes the solid stamps to a new level. I love the large and bold images in this set and they are perfect for multi-color stamping. 

sss

I have used all three sets of new inks from this new release.
Altenew New Release (Jan)6

The sentiment from the Farmer's Market are excellent for sharing/encouraging kindness. Love that! I can't get enough of using this stamp set because the images are so clean, modern and fun.

You can find out all the new release (shop here).
All supplies that I used for this hop are all available over Altenew Shop.
