This set will get your Christmas/holiday mood going for sure! I took out all my favorite Altenew Ink and gave them all a good workout!

 The Christmas tree is perfect for stamping a simple background. I absolutely love the ornament topped and went all out on embossing them in TWO colors. Why not!?

 I love the silver and gold topper and they really jazz up the look a lot!

If you are into houses, this stamp set will make you giddy. There is some coloring involved, but it is very manageable since they are tiny spots. 

Altenew-HomeSweet Home Stamp & Die Bundle-Gel Printing Soft Washes 6x6 Paper Pack (3) 
 
I took the advantage of the new pattern paper (Gel Printing Soft Washes 6x6 Paper Pack ). It didn't take long to color the images as I left most of the house in white.

How fun is that stone road ? AS you can see, I added something extra for the cloud to add textures.

Altenew-Diamond Mandala 3D Embossing Folder-Floral Holo Stamp & Die Bundle -001
 
This card may look like it takes a long time to create....well, it took me about 15 min at most.

I love inking up the embossing folder with three of the colors (yellow, orange and purple) from Rainbow Prism 6 mini Ink Cube.

Since this card has such vibrant colors, I kept the sentiment really simple on vellum. A touch a glitter paper adds just the right punch.

Since the Floral Halos Stamp & Die Bundle are so fine and dainty, I thought of doing white-embossing on vellum. Aren't they cool?

I then lightly colored them with Artist Markers. They turned out beautiful!

 Once I have all the die cut pieces, I arranged them in a pleasing way.... ta-da!

The white-embossed sentiment really went well with the arrangement. I do not always recommend getting coordinating dies, but this one is "worth it"!  
 
What can I say? This release is jam-packed with awesomeness. I have ONE more card from the release and will share it in my next postYou can get the entire release HERE.

I remember those retro ornaments . . . except we didn't call them retro.
They were made of very fragile glass. There were always a couple shatter accidents when seeing up the tree.
Love your card, Virrginia.
