Altenew Build-A-Flower: Camellia Japonica Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hi, everyone!
It's the new Build-A-Flower release day from Altenew and I'm so excited to be a part of the blog hop. Hopefully, you've come from Kelly Janes's blog, if not then you can start your hop at the Altenew's Blog
Before reviewing my cards, here're the names and images of this month's new BAF sets.

6x8 stamp set and coordinating dies so you can easily create your projects. This is only available as a set and not as individual products.


Altenew also has a very special Build-A-Flower: Camellia Japonica and Ink Bundle to make it easier for you to start creating beautiful projects. Get the bundle and save 5%!



< Card 1 >


I stamped Camellia Japonica Set images on 80lb Neenah White paper using my mini-MISTI. I also took leaves from BAF: Rose Set. Then I cut the images with coordinating dies in the set. 




Next, I stamped small floral images in gray on a piece of white cardstock, and then I diecut it using Cross Stitch Canvas Die for a textured surface. I adhered my flowers and leaves onto the panel as shown in the pictures. 


I stamped the script "delightful" with Versafine black ink, heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, and then I fussy cut it by freehand. 



< Card 2>

The background was made with Peach Gold Washi Tape and Cross Stitch Canvas Die.


 The sentiment from Kind Words Stamp set



I adhered blossoms and leaves using glue & foam tapes. For embellishment, I added gold metallic sequins. 



What I love about the BAF series is that we don't have to color in the images. Just stamping layer by layer as the product's layering guide, and then you can get beautiful flowers on your hands. 




Now, I've finished two cards with one set. 
Which one is your favorite?




That's it for today. I hope you enjoyed my cards. Now, your next stop to hop along is Maria Willis. You don't want to miss the giveaway information and the whole blog hop list below.

Thank you so much!
Marge
