Hi there, I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Can you believe it’s already September?!
Today we’re celebrating Altenew’s Build-A-Flower: Hellebore* release! If you arrived from the Maryam Perez’s blog, you’re right on track. If you want to hop along from the beginning, visit the Altenew Card Blog. Check the bottom of this post for the full blog hop list!
This beautiful layering set is available as a stamp and die bundle, and also as a bundle that includes ink cubes in colors that coordinate perfectly together. You can also subscribe to reserve your monthly Build-A-Flower set and make sure that you never miss out!
For my first card, I started by stamping all three of the layered flowers. I used Sunray as the base layer, then Chamomile, then Coral Bliss, and finally Heart Beat for the detail in the center of the flower. I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and then I set them aside to work on the background.
I used Post-it Tape to mask off the edges of an A2-sized piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. Then, using a foam blending tool, I blended Pink Pearl ink into the unmasked area. I concentrated color at the top of the card and then faded to near white towards the bottom of the card.
I stamped the sentiment in black ink and then adhered the blooms using glue, glue dots, and foam tape for some variation in depth. Finally, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
For my second card, I repeated the stamping and die cutting, this time using Blush, Rouge, Ruby Red, and Grapevine for the flowers. I used a die from the Leaf Clusters die set to create a stem which I colored with a W4 Copic marker. I adhered the stem and blooms to a small piece of white cardstock and then stamped the sentiment.
For the background, I stamped several of the leaves from the Leaf Clusters stamp set in Evening Gray ink around the border of an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White. Then I adhered the floral piece with foam tape to the background before adhering the background to a card base.
