Altenew Build-A-Flower: Balloon Flower Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hello crafty friends!  All of us at Altenew are hopping today to share the latest Build-A-Flower: Balloon Flower.  This is a gorgeous and easy to stamp bloom.   I have a super easy card to share so keep scrolling to check it out.  Don't miss out on the prize info at the bottom of this post, along with the full list of stops on today's hop!


Altenew


I picked the Shades of Purple Oval Ink Set from Altenew and stamp out this multistep stamped image.  They are very easy to line up and, of course, the coordinating dies make it a breeze to get the perfect die cut!  I used the Tropical Forest Oval Set to create those bright green leaves.  


Altenew


I did a little masking around the edge of the white card base and then did some ink blending with Altenew's Blending Tool and the Trellis Stencil in the masked area.  I added in a little black spritz and the sentiment and then popped the blooms and leaves up on foam tape.
