Altenew Build-A-Flower: Semi-Double Chrysanthemum Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Am SO excited and happy to be part of Altenew's Build-A-Flower: Semi- Double Chrysanthemum Release Bloghop! 

Am a sucker for flowers and Absolutely love Altenew's varied range of products right from their brand launch. I feel so honoured and humbled by this Awesome opportunity.

You should have arrived from talented, Rachael Shedeed's blog. Else if you are starting from here, I have a full blog hop list at the end of my post.

I have created a card today using Altenew Semi Double Chrysanthemum set.


Build-A-Flower: Semi-Double Chrysanthemum Product Description: 


Love and flowers don't need to be perfect, but these gorgeous florals come very close to perfection!




This layering stamp set features a beautiful 4-layer chrysanthemum and three 3-layer leaves to add to your handmade cards, scrapbook layouts, bullet journal pages, and other DIY paper crafting projects. 


The Build-A-Flower: Semi-Double Chrysanthemum special edition stamp and die set is only sold as a bundle. It includes one 6" x 8" clear photopolymer stamp set (16 individual stamp images) and one coordinating die set (4 dies).

To create my card, I first stamped solid image of flowers followed by using second and third images, which are detailed layers. I used the Summer Afternoon mini ink cube set for the flowers. And then they were die cut using co-ordinating dies.


I did two such flowers and diecut using their co-ordinating dies and kept aside.


The green leaves are also from Semi-Double Chrysanthemum set, which were stamped onto white cardstock using Green Fields mini dye ink cube collections. They were also die cut using  co-ordinating dies.

The sentiment 'Love' is gold heat embossed on black cardstock and fussy cut it to give a defined look. The second part of sentiment is gold heat embossed onto a black cardstock strip. 

Finally for the background, took Altenew Classy strips stencil and embossing paste and created a partial stencilling to give a subtle texture to the card.

Then added Brusho - Lime green color pigment onto a watercolor cardstock, to create the organic styled background on the stenciled areas. Left to air dry and trimmed the focal panel.

Matted this focal panel onto A2 sized black Top fold cardbase using foam adhesives.. Then arranged the flowers and leaves to get a desired look. Popped the fussy cut sentiment and sentiment strip as shown above using foam adhesives.

Finally added some black enamel dots to finish off the card.


And now for the most exciting part : Giveaway!
