Altenew | Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon | Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hey crafty friends!

Today is a big day! I’m thrilled to be a part of the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon Release Blog Hop + Giveaway! I know you’re going to love all of the inspiration coming your way, so let’s get started!

This release blog hop is all about the brand new Build-A-Flower set – Snapdragon. These images are to die for, so get ready to be inspired. Every time you order an Altenew stamp set the layering guide is included – so you’ll always know how to line up those images perfectly. I find this super helpful, especially when I’m using the stamps for the first few times.

You can also bundle up and save! This Build-A-Flower can be purchased with a set of 8 coordinating ink cubes and the coordinating dies. If you purchase the bundle, you save 5%. There is also an option to sign up for a monthly subscription plan for the Build-A-Flower sets. When signed up, you are guaranteed a spot in our monthly Build-A-Flower releases and will receive a set each month – at a specially discounted price! ($35.00 → $29.99)

For today’s hop, I have created two cards for you. For the first one, I decided to go more country chic. I used kraft card stock and white embossing powder to really make the floral images pop off the page. I added a little vellum, black sentiments, a few sequins, and a little bit of rustic twine to keep that theme going. I love the way this one turned out and I can’t wait to send it out!

For my second project, I stamped the images more traditionally on watercolor card stock. I did a bit of ink smooshing to really bring out the watercolor vibe for my background. I wanted to give the effect that my flowers were in a field of other greenery. I stamped a sentiment from ‘More Than Words’ to finish it off.

You can check out the video tutorials for both of my cards below or HERE and HERE on YouTube!

    Your cards are gorgeous. I love the first one with the embossed snapdragons. I would have never thought of this technique for the snapdragons, but it is beautiful.
