Hi there! Popping in quickly from vacation with all of my little peoples and big redhead for the Altenew Build A Flower: Bearded Iris blog hop! You should have arrived here from Jenny Colacicco, and your next stop is Amanda Baldwin. (You can also start back at the beginning at the Altenew Blog if you get lost.)
I love that Altenew gives you the option to use the layered stamps or take some time to do some coloring. You can always subscribe to the Build A Flower series to receive the sets each month at a discounted rate! Let’s get started on the details!
I began by stamping the Bearded Iris flowers using the layering stamps from the Altenew Build A Flower: Bearded Iris set onto some white cardstock using Wisteria, Hydrangea, Persian Blue, Sapphire, Minty Mint, Sweet Leaf, and Just Green inks. I used the coordinating dies to cut all of the stamped pieces out.
On the card base, I blended both Wisteria and Persian Blue inks in the center of the A2 card front, as well as some Persian Blue ink around the outer edge of the card base to create a bit of a halo. I trimmed a rectangle of lavender cardstock down to the same width as the card front, then arranged my stamped Bearded Irises so that they were “growing” out of the cardstock rectangle. I adhered all of the components using foam adhesive.
Finally, I added a cornflower blue hello from the newly released All About You word dies and some iridescent blue gems.
Well, that’s all for my project, now for some fun giveaway information!
$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners!

This is lovely. I like the way you did the flowers with the dark blue color for shading. Great ink blending on the background too.
Love how you gathered all the irises together, just like they grow in my garden! And the bright green leaves is a delicious contrast to the purple flowers! Thanks for the inspiration!

I think this is why I love Altenew’s products. I’ve never heard of this flower and do not recall ever seeing such a beautiful flower. The blue colour you’ve used is just as beautiful as the flower. TFS X X
