Altenew Build-A-Flower: Fashion Monger Dahlia Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

I'm thrilled to be part of the Altenew Build-A-Flower Fashion Monger blog hop!  This is an absolute gorgeous layering stamp set!

You should have arrived here from the blog of Verity Biddlecombe.  I you need to start over, head on over to the Altenew Card Blog.

This beautiful layering stamp set is available as a Layering Stamp & Die Set; a Layering Stamp & Die set + Ink Bundle (5% off); or join the Monthly Subscription Plan (14% off)!

I had so much fun watercoloring the gorgeous Fashion Monger Dahlia flowers!

I began by creating my card base.  I embossed some white card stock with the Buffalo Plaid 3D embossing folder and trimmed the piece to 3-¾" x 5".  Then I used the Altenew Ink Blending Tool to add some Baby Pink Crisp Dye ink to the embossed panel.  Next I squished the Magenta ink pad onto my craft mat and used a wet paint brush to add splatters.  When it was dry, I glued this to a pink card stock layer and added it to a top-folding A2 card base.

Next I used the handy, included layering guide to stamp my flowers and leaves.  I used various inks from these Crisp Dye ink sets:  Spring Bouquet (for the pink); Cool Summer Night;  Green Valley; and Shade of Purple.  Then I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I adhered the leaves and flowers using liquid glue and foam tape.  To finish up, I stamped the sentiment in Jet Black ink and fussy cut it out.  I popped it up with a bit of foam tape.
