Altenew - Build - A - Flower Peony Blossom Release + GIVEAWAY!

Hello Everyone, Welcome to the Altenew Build - A - Flower Peony Blossom Release! Altenew is releasing this awesome flower set which you can see the details on their Blog HERE as well.

Product Description:

Our Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom set includes 1 stamp set (15 images) and 1 coordinating die set (8 dies).

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!

To begin my project, I first watercolor my background, once its dried I stamped the sentiment from More Than Words stamp set.

Next, I die-cut the flower and leaves on a white cardstock and stamp the images. The really cool about this set is that you don't have a white border when you die-cut. Then, I cut the centers using white cardstock and added sequins on the center to finish the card.

Here's the full view of the card

I hope you enjoyed!
Thank you for stopping by!

Altenew Sakura Blossom Release + Giveaway!

 Hello Everyone, welcome to Altenew Sakura Blossom Release!

The Sakura blossom is a lovely Japanese flower, and is known as a cherry blossom in some parts of the world. "Sakura" is derived from the Japanese word for "bloom" - "saku." In the United States, tourists travel to our capital, Washington D.C., to see the flowers bloom at the annual cherry blossom festival. This stamp set features layered cherry blossoms and leaves, and the accompanying die have score details to help you create 3D flowers.

To begin my card, I first die-cut the Sakura Blossom die-cut and then distressed each one. Then for the center of the flower cut the center-die-cut to fit in inside of the small sakura blossom.

Next, I distressed the background with Distress Inks and splattered it with water using paint brush.
I also splattered it with gold watercolor ink from Gansai Tambi Starry Colors.

Then, I stamped one of the sentiment with versamark ink and heat set it with gold embossing powder. Next, I added the Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.

The Sakura Blossom stamps and dies are now available for purchase at Altenew Store.
I hoped you enjoyed!
