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

by - October 01, 2019


Hello friends! Thank you so much for hopping along with us today to celebrate the newest Build A Flower addition, Fuchsia! This set is so unique and beautiful, and I'd love to show you how I was able to stretch it and create two different cards using different mediums. Check out my video below:


Because there is an outline stamp included in the set it's so easy to stretch your uses and create different looks with the same stamp. 

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 10/7/2019.

For this first card, I used the outline stamp only and colored in the florals with Copic markers and created details with colored pencils. 


For my second card, I went with a more simplistic and traditional approach using Altenew inks and the layered stamping technique that the build-a-flower line is known best for. 


I hope that you've gotten some inspiration for the newest Build A Flower from Altenew! Please continue hopping along with us. Your next stop is the incredibly talented Virginia Lu.
You can find the entire list just below the supply links. Thank you again, I'll see you soon!
