Altenew Build-A-Flower : Laelia Release Blog hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

Hello everyone.

Today I feel very excited and privileged to be participating in this Altenew Build-A-Flower Laelia Release Blog Hop.

Altenew are hosting this blog hop and you can hop on over to the Altenew Card Blog to start this fun hop or follow the list at the bottom of this post.  

And .......  there are prizes up for grabs along the way!

If you are not familiar with the Build-A-Flower concept, put simply, it is a monthy floral stamp layering series, available as a subscription service.

The Build-A-Flower Laelia Release

Bring sunshine to your projects with some magnificent florals. In this set, you will find an outline image & six coloring layers for the flower and three layers for the leaves & stem - they will bring this gorgeous flower to life! We have also included two leafy branches and a variety of versatile sentiments so you can get the most out of this set!

For my 5" x 7" inch card I have three card layers - the top layer (4-5/8" X 6-5/8") with my stamped and die cut images, the black layer (4-3/4" X 6-3/4") for contrast and finally my card base.

I stamped the outline stem in Mangrove Root.  For stamp B2 I stamped the full colour in Marshland, then B3(1) in Seaforest and B3(2) again in Marshland.

For my Flower 4(2) I used Pink Diamond, followed by A3 in Pinkalicious, A4 in Rubelitte, A7 in Razzleberry, A5 in Sunray and A6 in Margueriete.  

For clarity,  the stamp numbers for each layer that I have mentioned, appear on the stamp package adjacent to each image. 

In order to create great dimension for my die-cut flower which is the focal point of my card, I also die-cut a flower in black card stock and then offset this beneath my stamped and die-cut flower.

I created a cute little sentiment tag stamped with Obsidian Pigment Ink for a crisp and clear finish, which I threaded with linen thread and adhered across the front.

I really like the subtleness of this colour combination and I really do love this set.  The illustration below shows you the stamp set in detail:-

The set also includes a helpful layering guide-

So that's it from me.  I do hope you like my card project.   Thank you for stopping by.  You will have arrived here via the super talented Bridget Casey   Next stop on our hop is the lovely Pretti Chandran.
