Good morning! Today, I have the pleasure of taking part in the latest Altenew Build A Flower Release Blog Hop. You should have arrived here from Jaycee Gaspar‘s blog, and your next stop is Maryam Perez‘s blog. This month, we are focusing on a beautiful, unique flower: Hellebore.
There are a few options for receiving a discount on this beautiful new layering stamp set. You can become a Build A Flower subscriber, which will offer you a guaranteed set for each Build A Flower set released each month, and at a specially discounted rate of $29.99! You can also purchase one of the Build A Flower/Ink bundles, which come with inks specially matched to create perfectly layered stamped images.
Hellebores are beautiful and unique flowers, and one of my favorite features is their incredibly distinct, deep colors. I chose to do some outside-of-the-box stamping for today’s projects, pairing deepest purple with black details, as well as lavender with gray. I stamped a bunch of different blooms using these color combinations, and I had enough to create two different cards. Let’s get started with the details!
For my first project, I chose to create a subtly textured background by placing a white Dodec Cover Plate die cut over a white A2 card base. I then stamped some filler flowers from Focus on You and die cut them with their coordinating dies.
I arranged the flowers on the front of the textured card front and adhered everything with some foam adhesive. I added a gray “thanks” and added a few gems to add some sparkle!
For my second project, I used some of the leftover floral die cuts and a vellum die cut vase from Versatile Vases to create a bud vase of pretty flowers! I blended some purple ink on a white card base, then layered the vase and flower die cuts on the blended panel.
I adhered the vase of flowers to the blended card front, then added a sentiment strip stamped with Obsidian ink on a strip of cardstock. A few gems added some sparkle!
Well, that’s all for my projects today! Now, I have some fun giveaway information for you.
We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 9/7/2019.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Your next stop is Maryam Perez‘s blog. Happy hopping!
