Altenew Build-A-Flower: Candystripe Cosmos Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

Hi everyone and ......................Happy New Year!

Today I am happy to be hopping with Altenew and some crafty friends in the Build-A-Flower Candystripe Cosmos Release Blog Hop and Giveaway.  Between us, we will be sharing lots of ideas for using the the beautiful Build-A-Flower Candystripe Cosmos Stamp and Die Set. So, be sure to hop along with all of us.

This set features a gorgeous, elaborately showy candystripe cosmos flower with a branch and a leaf that you are sure to love.  Altenew have also included a few silhouettes of leafy branches perfect for adding stunning background patterns and foliage to your projects.

Thanks to Annemarie Caister for directing you here.   Next is Natasha Davies.  Alternatively, you can begin this hopping journey directly from the Altenew Card Blog.   The full list of blog hop participants can be found below.

I chose a striking red and black colour combo for my card design, and love the way the flower really pops against the coordinating red polka dot background paper which, incidentally, is from the Altenew Cheerful Meadow Paper Pack

The inks I used were Mango Smoothie, Ruby Red, Fresh Leaf and Limeade.

The illustration below shows you in detail what is included in this lovely set:-

Altenew run a Build-A-Flower Monthly Subscription Plan (14%  off).

Along with the stamped sentiment I used my Tall Alpha and Tall Alpha Lowercase Die Sets within the white space of my card design.

Giveaway Prizes

$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners!

Well, I do hope you like my idea for using this month's Build-A-Flower Candystripe Cosmos stamps and die set, and that you will be inspired by the designs shared by my crafty friends in the blog hop list below.
