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

by - June 01, 2019


Hello everyone! It's that time again, Altenew's newest Build A Flower release is here! Altenew never fails at these incredibly detailed and special floral sets, and this month is no exception. This month we're celebrating the Crocus, a bright and blooming flower that you've no doubt seen around this spring. The layers included in this set come together perfectly and if you could use some tips for creating scenery and dimension with your layered stamps, I've got a video tutorial on my Youtube channel linked here:



Another tip I love to use when creating cards that are largely covered in florals, is to introduce a few colors of the same flower onto my card. I use the color wheel to decide which colors look best together. On the card below I used purples and yellows accentuated by the green leaves across the front of the card.


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 6/9/2019.

I hope that you've enjoyed a peek at the brand new Altenew Build A Flower for June. Please continue on with the hop to the ever talented Patricia Roebuck. See the full hop list below the supply list!
