Altenew: Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom *GIVEAWAY*

17 January 2018

HELLO everyone.

Today I'm sharing the new Altenew Build-a-flower set. Every month Altenew release a new set which is composed of a stamp set and a coordinating die. I'll also be giving away a gift voucher. Scroll down to find out more.

This month's flower is the Sakura Blossom.


The Sakura blossom is a lovely Japanese flower, and is known as a cherry blossom in some parts of the world. "Sakura" is derived from the Japanese word for "bloom" - "saku." In the United States, tourists travel to our capital, Washington D.C., to see the flowers bloom at the annual cherry blossom festival. This stamp set features layered cherry blossoms and leaves, and the accompanying die have score details to help you create 3D flowers.

I created two cards with the set:

For my first card I just used the leaf stamps and used two colours from the Tropical Forest Mini ink cube set. I them stamped the sentiment in permanent black ink on top.




For my second card I stamped a couple of flowers using the Cherry Blossom ink set and for the centre I used some Razzleberry embossing ink. I added a heart shape cut out using one of the Heart nesting die and opted for some Birch wood speciality paper from Altenew. I just love the variation of sentiments on this set.

Altenew January 2018 Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

10 January 2018


Welcome to the January 2018 Release Blog Hop. If you have come from  Therese Calvird 's blog, your are right on track.

Altenew blog hops are my favourite. There is so much inspiration up for grabs and there are many prizes to be won. I also have a prize for you.

For this blog hop I created a layout using the Peony Dream 3d die set and the Caps Bold Alphabet die set for my layout.

I cut out the layers in patterned paper and cardstock and mixed both. I love the look of the flowers. I kept the rest really simple just adding some layers with papers from the Our Family Scrapbook collection. The title was cut using the Caps Bold set and some glitter paper.
