Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway

Altenew 5th Anniversary Blog Hop Day 3 + Giveaway


Hello Creative Friends! Jill Hawkins here today as part of the Altenew Blog Hop to say Happy 5th Anniversary to Altenew!! Be sure to read to the end to see all the amazing prizes to be won and all the inspiring blogs to visit next!

I have my Altenew sets in their own bin, and I love to pull them out and get them inky! I am beyond excited to be here on the SCT Blog sharing cards made with my new favorite Altenew products.Let’s jump right in, shall we?

First up, is my Main Squeeze! That’s because that is the name of this Altenew stamp set…wink wink! 🙂

Altenew-Main Squeeze-Jill D Hawkins-Day3_00

This set is so juicy and fresh, I couldn’t stop stamping it! I made a handful of panels all at once to make more cards later. The layers on their own are fun and I also completely enjoy them stacked up using different shades of ink. Be sure you start with your lightest ink on the bottom and build up to darkest for best results.

And can we talk for a minute about the Mega Thanks die? I thought it looked like fun to use and then I received it and well… it is AWESOME! Love this font and how it just commands the card to say Thanks!

Next up, is one of my all-time favorite card genres: Graphic! The Altenew Simple Shapes XL stamp set is one of those stamp sets that you can just leave on your desk to grab often. There are endless possibilities of layering, building, repeating…the sky is the limit. First up, I decided to do a little graphic card with some sorbet like colors:

Altenew-Simple Shapes-Jill D Hawkins-Day3_00

I thought this turned out crisp and could easily be changed for a masculine card using a different color palette. Of course, the sentiment is one of my favorite parts of the whole thing. This sentiment is from Altenew’s Crafty Life stamp set. If you’re crafty, this set is for you!

And last but not least, I thought I’d try something for kicks and likely just toss it out. However, I thought the panel turned out sweet, so I finished it up with this sweet sentiment from the Crafty Life set.

Altenew-Crafty Life-Jill D Hawkins-Day3_00

I think the Simple Shapes combine to make a funky little flower! Sure it’s more traditional to use the circle in the center. But life is short—stamp a pentagon! 🙂

I’m looking forward to popping this card in the mail and sending the hugs. I need to mail a few dozen of these!

    Totally in love with these pretty cards. The one created with the ‘Main Squeeze’ stamp totally stole my heart though. It is absolutely adorable with the muted pastel shades you used. Looks gorgeous. Simple Shapes is yet another favorite and versatile stamp set. I love mine.

    I love your card! I love the fruit on your card! I have a fruit stamp but it’s not from Altenew. Mine is a whole orange & it says Orange on it. I forgot I had it until I saw your card. I love all the colors especially the yellow because it’s my favorite color in the whole wide world! Of course you used yellow in all your cards! I love that! I don’t have a die cutter but I love how it makes cards stand out. I also love the stitching you did on the cards. At one time, stitching was only done on fabric, now it’s done on cards! I love it!
    Thank you for showing us your colorful cards & Happy 5th Anniversary to Altenew!
