Altenew Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peony Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


HAPPY NEW YEAR FRIENDS!!!
I'm thrilled to be part of the Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peony Release Blog Hop hosted by the Altenew Card Blog.


Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peony Layering Stamp & Die Set:



Mixing up Crips inks for these Build-A-Flower: Cora Louise Peonies, which I found to be very forgiving in lining up the layers.
I created two different backgrounds to layers these Peonies on. One is the stencil and the second is are Leaves from the set embossed for a hint of texture. Then a pop of Washi tape to bring it all together.
Featuring:
Tea Party Washi Tape Set

*******
For this second card, I stamped all the BAF layers in yellow, then quickly inked a background with the stencil...moving it down the cardfront three times for a lovely pattern. Then I layered all on top of a second Background featuring the Buffalo Plaid Builder Stencil. Stencils are my favorite way to add interest on the edges peeking out from the focal point.
Featuring:
Modern Circles Stencil


*******

Hope your year is filled with Crafting sessions that make you HAPPY!!

I like both cards but the pink really sets off the peachier flower for me. Leaving some of the leaves white is a great accent. Your backgrounds are lovely creations all by themselves!
