Altenew Build-A-Flower Blog Hop + Giveaway

11:00:00 PM

Hello, crafty friends!
It's Dana here and I'm so happy to be part of Altenew Build A Flower Blog Hop. Hopefully you came here from amazing Kymona's blog, but if not, please check out full blog hop list in the bottom of this post.


To celebrate first anniversary of Altenew Build A Flower series, I have two cards to share with you today. I kept same layout on my cards featuring Altenew Build A Flower Peony Blossom, but used different mediums and techniques. Let's get started!


For my first card, I
  • Stamped 2 layered flowers from Altenew BAF Peony Blossom as shown in the picture with several dye inks.
  • Sketched curve lines on vellum paper and cut them using scissors. Taped them slightly where I wanted.
  • Using coordinating dies, I made 3 masks for each flowers. These dies fit perfectly to flower images without white space, so you can easily make mask image through just die cutting.

  • Ink blended the area, between two curves, using Distress Oxide Inks softly. I used Picked Raspberry, Worn Lipstick and Tattered Rose.
  • Splattered white opaque inks using water brush and peeled off the masks.
  • Die cut more flower elements from vellum and gold glittery paper. Mounted them as shown.
  • Gold heat embossed sentiments from Altenew Forever and Always. I used gold tinsel embossing powder for 'darling' and Altenew Rose Gold Crisp Embossing Powder for the other.
  • Mounted flower panel onto A2 sized white card base. Embellished rose gold color sequins, too.


For my second card, I
  • Drew curves similar with first design using pencil on watercolor paper.
  • White heat embossed one layers of each flower images from Altenew BAF Peony Blossom.
  • Watercolored them using Gansai Tambi watercolor paints as shown.
  • Die cut smallest layer of flowers from silver glittery paper and mounted them.

  • Stamped leaves from same stamp set using Distress Bundled Sage Oxide Ink and brushed images using waterbrush.
  • Stenciled bubbles along with curve sketch line with Altenew Tiny Bubbles Stencil. I used Bundled Sage, Shaded Lilac and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks with water.
  • Once them dried, I erased sketch lines.
  • Heat embossed sentiment from Altenew Forever and Always stamp set using Altenew Platinum Crisp Embossing Powder onto vellum.
  • Mounted watercolor panel on A2 sized white card base and embellished clear sequins here and there.

Pin It
Darling, every time I see you, I fall in love all over again.
I'll find you in any life time.

Hope you enjoyed my set of cards and sentiments. Which card is your favorite?:)

  78. Wow, the brown flowers are so unique! There are always colors for things that I think I would never use and then someone does something that surprises me. Like your flower card that is brown. I would never do a flower in brown but you did and surprise, I like it! I like the copper and gold insides too because they match so well with the brown. You added the right amount of gold sequins to the card too. I love that card! I'm going to save this card so I can try making one this color.
    I love the different colors of purple flowers too. I think I have both of those colors. I want to try what you did. You have inspired me! Yes, you may pat yourself on the back! LOL
    Thank you for showing your pretty and unique cards and for giving us the chance to win something.
