Hello everyone and welcome to the Altenew September Release Blog Hop! If you came here from Zinia Redo's blog, then you are on the right track. Otherwise, go back to the Altenew Card Blog and start from there, as you won't want to miss anything!

There is a bunch of fabulous holiday stamps and dies being released today and all are now available for purchase at the Altenew online store. To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by 9/19/2018 for a chance to win. 6 winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 9/22/2018.

In addition, one winner will be chosen from the comments left on this blog post and will receive a $30 gift certificate!

Today I've created two simple cards to share with you. For my first card, I used the new Bountiful Branch Stamp Set to create a very quick and simple card. I decided to go for a traditional red and green colour combo and used the following Altenew inks: Rouge, Crimson and Velvet for berries and Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen for the leaves.

season's greetings

For my second card I combined the Bountiful Branch Set with a sentiment from Mini Christmas Stamp Set. This time I decided to go for a monochromatic, neutral look and I used stamps from the Bountiful Branch Set with the Altenew Rock Collection Mini Cube Set to create my background. The sentiment was heat embossed with Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.
