Altenew Build-A-Flower: Lavender Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


The Build-A-Flower Stamp Sets from Altenew are some of my favorites and Lavender is a gorgeous one! It's perfect for card making and I created two to share with you today.


On the first card, I wanted to use the flowers in a traditional purple color scheme. I used the Shades of Purple Mini Cube Set along with some minty greens for the stems.


I wanted the create a background for them to pop off of, so I used the linear stencil with Arctic Ink and concentrated on the lower half of the card. I heat embossed the greeting and added a few clear dew drop gems from my stash.


On the second card, I thought it would be fun to stamp a bunch of grayscale flowers on my background and then have one in color for a pop!


I used some darker greens for the stem on this one and stamped my sentiment on a strip of white cardstock, popping the colorful lavender on top. I put it all on a light purple card base and I love the look!


So, as with all of their releases, Altenew has a very generous giveaway and a blog hop full of inspiration!

Prizes:

  27. I especially like the "thinking of you"-card. I thinks it's hard to think of that kind of cards. I think if you have to send the card, the one who will recieve it will appreciate your work on it.
