Use "Halftone Squares" in Two Creative Ways!

Hello friends!
Warning: photo-heavy post
It's my turn to share some Altenew projects with you! 
I don't know about you, but I do love geometric shapes with floral designs. 
The stamp set "Halftone Squares" is so versatile that I can think of so many ways of using this set.

Today I am sharing TWO ways of using this awesome stamp set.

Previously, I made a similar card here and I took the same direction and did it again.
I saw it on ALTENEW

 The square "vase" looks pretty modern and trendy to me.

With the help of MISTI, I stamped the "vase" with Shades of Purple

The Starry Flowers were colored during my vacation and were die cut after returning home.
Gotta love the matching dies!

I then stamped a few small squares along with the Chinese sentiment in "Thanks Around The World". For the embellishment, I tied the silver strings around the "vase" and added sequins.

My 2nd project with the Haltone Squares is all about stamping.

I started out with a piece of white stock and started stamping the largest yellow square.

Ding---> it is easiest to start stamping with the largest squares and then gradually build up the design. Watch out for the white space as you stamp each square. I stamped the smallest squares with pops of bright colors to bring out the happy factor!

This is also a great way to bring out your favorite Altenew Ink and make it a good workout for the inks! With the Silver Glitter tape on white card stock,  I made the die cut with the gorgeous "Simply Thank You" Die.

Two gorgeous ways of using those amazing squares! Thanks for the light bulb "ding", I see how the small squares in more vibrant colors stand out now that you mention it.

Beautiful cards Virginia and what great uses of these Halftone stamps. I wasn't sure if I would use the Halftone stamps when they first came out but now I have so many ideas for them, I love them.
