Altenew Build-A-Flower: Daffodil Release Blog Hop

Hey friends!  We are all hoping today to showcase a beautiful new stamp set, Build-a-flower: Daffodil from Altenew.  This stamp set includes 2, easy to stamp, blooms, a couple of leaves and several amazing sentiments.  

Check out my clean and simple card using the new daffodil set...

Altenew Daffodil

To create this card, I grabbed the Gradient Lines Cover Plate and cut it out of white yardstick and then added it to a white card base.  I love how those cover plates give a faux embossed look to the background when using the same color.  I did a little spritzing of black ink in the background and then stamped and die cut the daffodil and the leaves to add to the front of the card.  Last, I stamped the sentiment on a strip of paper and added it to the card front.

For this next card, I grabbed some colors I don't usually use and created this card...

I love all colors equally but I never grab for orange, so I wasn't sure about this card at first but it grew on me.  I stamped the daffodils around the card front and then die cut a rectangle out of the middle.  I raised the middle by attaching I to the card front with fun foam and then added the frame directly to the card.  I love the uneven dimension this raised panel brings.  Last, I used my favoritist die ever, that big huge hello die...and cut it out of black cardstock and then added it to the card front.
