1 stamp set – 3 cards | Altenew blog hop & Giveaway

Welcome to a fun blog hop! The December Altenew release is here and we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways.

The release is once again packed with lovely stamp sets and dies. Plus this month they have also release 5 pads of 6×6 papers in a variety of colors.

For today’s blog hop I used my most favorite stamp set from this release. It’s the Nature Snippets Stamp Set ( ALTN | SSS ) stamp set. A must have for me since it’s so unique and perfect for clean and elegant cards. I love this stamp set so much that I couldn’t say with sharing just one card… I had to create 3 just to share some extra ideas on how you can use it!

Here are some close up photos on all the 3 cards that I made for today.

the flower card

In this card I kept everything in blue and brown with touches of gold. A really clean and elegant looking card that works as a masculine card too. Just change the sentiments and you have a card for any occasion.

the bird card

How sweet and romantic looking is this card? It’s a thank you card but it would also makeĀ  lovely birthday card. I kept everything in pink with touches of gold on the bird, the branches and the sentiment. The lovely lace border was cut out using the Creative Edges: Lace Die( ALTN | SSS ).

the butterfly card

My last card is a window one. I created a panel with three cut out circles and you can see the lovely nature snippets through them.

    I wasn’t all that fond of this snippets set, but then I saw your cards. I love the pink card. It is both elegant and romantic. That lace die really adds to the appeal. Your window card is pretty also. I can definitely see using the Brown and blue coloring for a more masculine look. Wonderful job with this set!
