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

by - May 01, 2019

Hello, there! Thank you so much for joining me on my stop on the Altenew Build-A-Flower hop! This month is the Snapdragon and I am in love with it. The details in this stamp set are amazing, namely the details of the stems going through the flowers. I think it gives such depth and dimension to the stamped image and elevates it so much! Here's a new video I created showing ways to easily elevate your layered stamping and take your cards to the next level:


As I mention in the video, the size of these flowers make it perfect to used multiple ink colors to draw even more attention to clean and simple cards. I used this pink and yellow flower as the entire focal point of this card and I think it works perfectly.

To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win. We’ll also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the blog hop list below. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 5/10/2019.

Another tip I touch on in the video is how to stamp these (somewhat tedious) layered stamps in bulk. This is especially useful for stamping bulk cards and also for creating the types of cards (FLOWERS EVERYWHERE) that you see below. :)


Your next stop on the hop is the incredibly talented Nathalie DeSousa. See the full hop list below the product links and don't forget to comment for your chance to win! I can't wait to see what you create with this newest Build-A-Flower.
