Welcome to another fun blog hop with giveaways and lots of inspiration! The new May Altenew release is out and packed with awesome products. You should have arrived here from Lilith Eeckels. If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning please go to Altenew Card Blog
For today I wanted to create a summery looking and really fresh card. So I used the Main Squeeze Stamp Set ( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). This is a very versatile stamp set, you can customize the designs to look like lemons, oranges, limes, grapefruits … so many different options!
I went with a monochromatic, yellow card but think of all the possibilities of mixing more colors and stamping wonderful fresh backgrounds! In this card I wanted a clean white background but with some interest… so I went with the Pegboard Canvas Cover Die( ALTN | SBC | SSS ). It’s not just for cross stitching! You can use it for really subtle backgrounds but with a touch of something! And I love how that yellow cardbase picks through those little holes.
The set is a layering stamp set but you can use it any way you like! Be creative! Here I used just one of the layers and it looks awesome too. The lemons are embossed with clear embossing powder and are very shiny and textured in real life. On top I added some dots with Crystal Drops Gloss – Morning Dew( SBC | SSS ).

Darling card. The stamp set really intrigues me. It is the only “fruit” stamp set I have seen that accurate represents what fruit – in this case a lemon, or lime, or orange slice – really looks like. I guess it means that if you want it done right, leave it to Altenew!
what a fun card for this beautiful weather. Makes me want to have a lemonade. Great job Vicky.
Fabulous design, great card!
