Hello crafty friends!
This month’s Altenew build-a-flower set features a beautiful Peony Blossom. The Peony Blossom Build-A-Flower has a slightly different approach than our conventional Build-A-Flower sets. The stamp set has three five-petal flowers accompanied by a shading layer and a center layer. You may use these flowers as is, or layer them to create dimension. The matching dies will cut the flowers all the way to the edge without leaving a border. This will help in shaping the petals to the desired dimension when using a shaping tool (don’t have a shaping tool? You can use the domed end of a pen or pencil!). We included an additional flower die and stamen dies to help you create realistic blooms! Even though we named the set ‘Peony Blossom’ since the petals were loosely based on Peony petals, you can let your imagination run wild and create different types of flowers! We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom
Here is what I came up with:
I stamped flower petals onto watercolour paper using Coral Bliss & Heart Beat dye inks, and then die cut them with the matching dies.
I then cut between stamped lines shown as the picture using scissors.
I added stamen on the centre of each flower using foam tape.
For the sentiment, I used the Adore You stamp set.
