Altenew Build-A-Flower: Anemone Coronaria Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello, hi!  I’m joining the Altenew Blog Hop today and sharing this card to showcase the September Build-A-Flower Stamp and Die sets.  If you’re hopping along with us, you’ll have arrived here from the Altenew Card Blog.

Sadly, delivery systems failed us on both sides of the Canadian/US border and I only received this stamp set yesterday!  Fortunately though, the Build-A-Flower stamp sets are so easy to use to create a quick and easy, yet beautiful card!  This month Altenew is releasing the Anemone Coronaria stamp set and I am besotted with it!  From the fern-like leaves to the type-writer styled sentiments!  And as usual, there is a 5% discount if you purchase the stamp, die and ink bundle!

I stamped the “colored” portion of each of the two flowers using Heart Beat and Vineyard Berry inks, and the leaves with Frayed Leaf.  I cut masks of the outline shape so that I could stamp the leaves “behind” the blooms.

Then I stamped the outlines of the leaves using Moss ink and for the blooms, I stamped on vellum using Altenew embossing ink and heat embossed with Golden Peach embossing powder.  On the backside of the blooms, I used the Coral Berry and Ruby Red alcohol Artist Markers to add more color to the stamped/inked layer on the card stock.  I used the coordinating dies to cut out the blooms, and the glued those overtop of the colored stamped layer.  I added the sentiment with some crisp black ink to stand out, and mounted the card panel to a green card base, adhering it off set for extra interest.

As per the recent change, Altenew stamp sets now come with a fantastic triple-fold card showing ways of using the stamps, some lovely color suggestions, along with a very helpful layering guide to help you get the images just right.

For today’s blog hop, Altenew is giving away $30 gift certificates to 6 lucky commenters on the Altenew Card blog and Altenew Scrapbook blog, and I too have a prize to give away!  Leave a comment below and I’ll choose one person to receive a $20 Altenew Gift Certificate!  The winner will be notified by Sept 5, 2018.
