Altenew Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet Release Blog Hop + Giveaway +Video

Hello everyone and Happy First of April! Feeling honored to be on the BlogHop list sharing the new Release from Altenew! If you are hopping along from the beginning of the, you should be arriving from the blog of Svitlana Shayevich.

I'm excited to share the newest Build-A-Flower stamp and die set with you today. It is called SWEET VIOLET, and it lives up to it's name...Super Sweet:)
Take a look:
Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet
On the back of the packaging there is a layering guide for ease of stamping all the layers.
Layering Guide

For my first card, I stamped the outline layers of both SWEET VIOLET blooms and the leaf image with Silver Lake Crisp Ink onto watercolor cardstock. Then colored with the the Watercolor Brush Markers, and Artist Markers. The Dies in the set make cutting out a snap! Then I created a spring Posie layered into a freestyle collage of hearts, lace border and washi tape.

I love how the Dots in Maple Washi Tape coordinates with the yellow paper from the Celebrations 6x6 Paper Pack for my sentiment banner! The word lovely is fussy cut out to add interest.
I created several frames with the Halftone Hearts Nesting Die Set by placing two dies together and cutting at teh same time. The Floral Heart Frame Die is snuggled in the center, and I gently folded a few of the Floral Heart Frame branches up to pop out of the arrangement.

Supplies list:
Artist Markers Set E, for the Tropical Forest greens
*******
The Build-A-Flower: Sweet Violet can be purchased as a Bundle with 8 inks.

Annette Reed said...

Your cards are beautiful! I wish there was a video of the first card also. I like all the layers on it and would have loved seeing it come together. Thanks so much for the video of the other card. I really enjoyed watching the background come together. You have a lot more patience than I do when it comes to coloring. Did it take as long as it seemed to color that flower and leaves? It looks great but I'm not sure I could do that. Great job!

Olga Fink said...

Amazing cards! I love them!
