{Altenew} Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom Release + Giveaway


Hi, everyone! Today, Altenew is releasing a new Build-a-Flower set and it's the stunning Peony Blossom. This stunning 6x8 set offers stamped flowers in three sizes and two different leaves. The coordinating dies include petals in four sizes for building even more dimension, as well as unique stamen dies. This means there's no limit to the number of layering options, whether stamped with one, two or three layers or simply die cut with plain cardstock!


I have a friend who's going through a difficult time and I wanted to make an uplifting encouragement card for her. I stamped two each of the small and medium flowers using the three lightest ink colours in the Rose Petal Oval Set. I also used the three lightest colours from my favourite Sea Shore Oval Set for the leaves.


For the sentiment, I combined words from Be Strong with Super Script. I used Puffy Heart for the top line and Volcano Lake for the scripted awesome die cut.


My second card was made with Chinese New Year in mind but it also works as a birthday card. This time, I stamped the peonies with the three lightest colours from the Red Sunset Oval Set and the leaves using the Green Fields Oval Set.


The scripted celebrate is from Super Script and the secondary lines are also from Be Strong. I used Rouge and Industrial Diamond inks. I added two of the stamen dies die cut from white glitter cardstock. On both cards, I used my fingertips to curl the edges of the flower petals and leaves.
