Altenew Build-A-Flower: Bearded Iris Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello there!
Welcome to ALTENEW BUILD-A-FLOWER: BEARDED IRIS RELEASE BLOG HOP+GIVEAWAY.   You are arriving from Dana Joy's blog.  A list of all the participants is available at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

Today's newest release, BUILD-A-FLOWER: BEARDED IRIS is gorgeous, and as always perfect for all types of paper crafting projects.  Let me show you how I used it for a new entry in my daily journal:

I just love the movement of the flower, so I decided to build my border embellishments with a few of the blooms.

I used the new BAF: BEARDED IRIS and inks from Shade of Purple, Martian Terrain, and Nature's Wonders to create the flowers.   To create a nice soft contrasting background for the flowers, I covered the page with Foiled Marble Washi Tape.  Then it was all about creating the vertical clusters at the edges of the page.

I love how easy this entry came together with the new BUILD-A-FLOWER: BEARDED IRIS. Be sure to check it out, and take advantage of Altenew's Subscription program.

Of course we are celebrating the release with a GIVEAWAY.

$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! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 07/07/2021 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 07/09/2021.
