Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom + Giveaway

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!

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.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win. Three winners will be announced on the Card Blog, and other three winners will be announced on the Scrapbook Blog on 2/18/2018.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a lovely day!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew: Happiness is coming your way

Hello crafty friends!
I’m up on the Altenew blog with my watercolour flower card using the Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm Set.
I started by stamping flowers and leaves from the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Coral Charm set on an A2 sized watercolour paper panel in pigment black ink – I used Post-It Notes for masking flowers. I then watercoloured the stamped images with Peerless watercolors, the background with Pumice Stone Distress ink. I added black ink splatters here and there. Once the panel was dry, I stamped the sentiment in black, and then mounted the panel on white card base using glue tape.
I hope you’ll always find happiness in whatever you may do!! :D
Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a wonderful day!!

Keep smiling and be blessed! God bless you all!

Altenew Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus Release + Giveaway

Hello crafty friends, happy Thursday!
We are already passing through the middle of this month, and that means it’s time for another beautiful Build-A-Flower set! This month it’s Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus – It’s only available as a set, not individual product.

I started by creating striped background with the Watercolor Stripes stencil. I laid the stencil over watercolour paper panel and then inked with Pumice Stone Distress ink. Next, I stamped layered ranunculus from the Build-A-Flower: Ranunculus set using some Distress and dye inks:
Flower: Scattered Straw (Base), Fossilized Amber (Accent) Distress inks
Leaves: Frayed Leaf (Base), Forest Glades (Accent) Dye inks
I then die cut them with the matching dies. Once the background panel was dry, I mounted it on an A2 sized white card base using double-sided tape first, stamped the sentiment in black pigment ink, then added the ranunculus using foam tape.

For my second card, I stamped outlined flowers & leaves on watercolour paper in black pigment ink, and then coloured them with Distress inks and markers.
