Altenew Build-A-Flower: Poppy Release Blog Hop...



Good morning!  Altenew has a brand new build-a-flower and we are hopping today to share it with you.  

This gorgeous new stamp set has 2 blooms that are so easy to create.  Each bloom has 3 steps to the bloom and then a couple small details for each complete flower.  Super easy!! 

My first card showcases a way to use the outline of the bloom to create a fun, clean and simple background....

Randomly stamping the flower in black ink definitely created bold background.  To finish this card off, I die cut the hello die in black fun foam and then layered it with an ink blended hello die cut.  I added a little frosty edge to the bottom for a little shine.

I love how the black fun foam gives dimension but also ties the black details of the card together.

I made another easy background but randomly stamping the blooms...

I heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and then added some sliver thread for a little extra detail.

Here is the stamping guide for the Poppy.  Super easy!

  34. Hi Laurie. Wow, both those cards are gorgeous - LOVE them both. The first one with the black and white background and the watermelon coloured Hello is super elegant and the second card with those gorgeous poppies is so beautiful. Altenew just HAD to bring out this stamp set right before Christmas when we're all broke! Never mind. Will save up and get this set some time, because poppies are just about my favourite flower. Thanks for sharing your beautiful cards with us. Oh, by the way, Merry Christmas! Can't believe I'm saying that already. LOL
