Welcome to a fun blog hop! I am a big fun of Altenew ink pads and new ones have just been released! So join us as we showcase the new colors through an inspirational blog hop with lots of giveaways.

You can get the new ink pads in a set of four or separately and they are available as big oval ink pads or small ink cubes. And as always there are reinkers available. The colors are lovely, with Fall Harvest in shades of warm yellow/brown, Sugarplums in shades of purple, and my favorite set Tranquility in shades on blue greys. Here is a look on them!

For my winter scene cards, I used the new Modern Fox stamp set. And to showcase the new ink pads I used inks from the Fall Harvest set for my fox and all the Tranquility colors for my tree and the cold winter sky!

I used the stitched slope dies to add snow at the bottom of my scene and tiny silver stars at the night sky.

The sentiment comes also from the Modern Fox set and I embossed it with white embossing powder.
