Hello crafty friends! I'm thrilled to be joining in Altenew's blog hop to celebrate the release of the gorgeous Build-A-Flower: Tree Peony!
The beautiful Build-A-Flower: Tree Peony is available now, in the Altenew shop! There are three ways to add this gorgeous set to your stash: as a stamp & die bundle, or save 5% with a stamp, die & ink bundle, or finally, save 14% and never miss out on a Build-A-Flower by joining the subscription plan.
Now onto my card! I used all of the gorgeous layers for the flowers and leaves and added them to an embossed background. Read on for the details!
First I stamped the beautiful layers of the Tree Peony flower and leaves. I used inks from the Red Sunset ink cube set for the flower. For the leaves I used Green Fields ink cube set. Then I cut them out with the Tree Peony coordinating dies. The flower centers are inks from the Golden Sunset ink cube set.
Next I created a dimensional background for the gorgeous florals! I used coordinating card stock from my stash and embossed it with the amazing Beautiful Baroque 3D embossing folder. Next I trimmed it to 4" x 5-¼". To add some shimmery fun to the embossed piece, I gently swiped the Enchanting Gold Pigment ink pad over the raised areas. (I wish I could capture the beautiful shimmer in my photos!) Then I added some metallic gold and white spatters. When the spatters were dry, I adhered the panel to a top-folding A2 card base.
I used one of the sentiments included in the set and stamped it in black ink. Then I trimmed it into a banner shape. I added foam tape to the back of the flower, one leaf, and the sentiment and adhered them to the card front.
I honestly do not know how Altenew continues to create so many beautiful floral sets! I love this Build-A-Flower: Tree Peony set and it will be in my favorites for sure! Be sure to leave a comment to qualify for a chance to win!
