ALTENEW BUILD-A-FLOWER: SNAPDRAGON STAMP AND DIE RELEASE BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY


Hi there!

Welcome to the Altenew  Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon Release Blog Hop and Giveaway.   You must be arriving from Ashlea's blog.

It is always an exciting day when Altenew asks you to be part of their release party, and this time the new BAF:  Snapdragon is one that you will want in your collection, as Altenew has designed it to be easy to layer and with a very realistic finished look.  Let me show you what i mean,




The tall blooming flowers in the BAF Snapdragon set have been designed to work as a pair or their own when used in a project.   For this card, i stamped both the BAF designs using the Shades of Purple Mini Ink Cubes




To assemble the card, i cut a piece of the new Blushing Blooms paper pad and then layered a piece of vellum  with the stamped sentiment and then used some foam adhesive to attached the flowers to the card.   Love the simplicity of the car, and the color combination brings the detail in the blooms.




For the next card,  chose to create a card that uses a more subtle color combination.  This time,  I created the background using the Square Weave Stencil and some Rose Gold paste from Vicki Boutin.  I stamped the BAF Snapdragon image using Altenew Gray inks so that it would stand out from the background.





To assemble the card, i chose to use foam adhesive to prop the image, and then used the Wispy Begonia stamp set to add the sentiment to the card.    Love the color contrast and how the single bloom completes this card.

Like i mentioned, i love the movement and versatility of the stamp and used it to create a layout for my Family album (Citrus Twist Kits' Life Crafted Album).





This time, i chose to create a background for my page, using just some of the images from the BAF: Snapdragon stamp set.   Firstly, I created a  mask so that i could continuously stamped the shadowed background using Altenew inks.





I did not want to overpower or hide the background with extra embellishments and decor, so i simply created a few blooms using the Rose petal mini ink cube, and used them to embellish the picture.   The title also comes from the BAF: Snapdragon stamp set.   I have created a video that shows you how this page came together:




Love how these projects came together rather easily using the new BAF: SNAPDRAGON Stamp and Die set.   I hope you are inspired to check it in the Altenew shop, and take advantage of their
