Altenew Build-A-Flower Blog Hop + Giveaway

26 February 2018

Welcome to the our Build-a-flower blog hop.
Have you come from Therese Calvird's blog? Well, you are right on track! If not you can start the hop over on the Altenew Card blog.

The Altenew Design team and guests have teamed up to celebrate the Build-a-Flower series from Altenew. I chose you the Carnation set to create a card.

  1. I started by stamping the carnation flowers at the bottom of my card base using a mask so that I could overlap the flowers.
  2. Then I added some leaves and stamped a couple of details to the sides and on the top part. 
  3. I finished it off with the Thinking of You stand alone die. 



GIVEAWAYS:

There are three giveaways for this blog hop. 

  • Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to six lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog by Friday, March 2nd for a chance to win. Six winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 3/4/2018.

A winner will be announced on March 4th on the Altenew Blogs.




  • I'll be giving away a 20$ gift voucher to the Altenew store. All you have to do is leave a comment below in the COMMENT section. I'll pick a lucky winner on March 2nd and announce it on my blog that day too.

Beautiful card!

Annalisa Young said...

This feels very different from some of the other cards, and I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because of the open flowers that you stamped in color towards the top? Maybe the bold/subtle combo of the sentiment? Whatever it is, I like it. I also like the bamboo roses on your wall behind the card. A whole Altenew theme! Thanks for sharing and participating in this bloghop.
