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.

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.
I used Altenew's dye inks: Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Dusk, Desert Night for blue, Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, Caramel Toffee, Paper Bag for yellow, Sand Dunes, Rocky Shore, Mocha, Espresso for Brown, Lava Rock, Moon Rock, Evening Gray, Morning Frost for Gray.
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.

Altenew Dye Inks: Warm & Cozy Mini Cute Set, Red Cosmos Mini Cute Set, Green Fields Mini Cube Set, Emerald
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.
