Altenew December 2019 Ink Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello friends!
Warning: heavy photo post 
Yay, it's December Ink Release Blog Hop from Altenew!
I am super excited to share TWO cards with the new INK. 
If you arrive from the blog of Jenny Colacicco, you are in the right place!

All the details about this blog hop, please visit Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog

My first card features the two new inks: Sugar Plums Ink and Tranquility Ink. 

Altenew-SugarplumsInk-TranquilityInk-Virginia#1

I stamped two sets of inks with Antique Roses Stamp & Die Bundle.
This stamp set is really easy to use and I can see why it is also super popular in this blog hop.

I paired these two new inks with Gentleman's Gray and they worked out beautifully.

I am amazed how these awesome the Antique Roses look in these two new inks!
They are vintage and sophisticated.

 If you like the look of these roses, you should definitely consider putting these inks in your wish list!

My 2nd card features 3rd new ink: Fall Harvest Ink
Altenew-FallHarvestOvalSet-DotBotanicals-Virginia#1

I took out the awesome Dot Botanicals Stamp Set and created a monochromatic card.
 For this slightly wet look, I simply sprayed the stamp with a few spritz of water once I inked it up with the Fall Harvest.

I was so inspired by my backyard woods as the foliage this fall was absolutely spectacular.
For the sentiment, I used the Birchwood Impressionism Stamp & Die Bundle.Altenew-FallHarvestOvalSet-DotBotanicals-Virginia#3


For the special touches, I added Golden Edge Washi Tape and of course, some DMC gold strings.
I hope that you love this ink-sipration from this ink release!
