Altenew Build-A-Flower Blog Hop + Giveaway + Video




 Hello and welcome to the Altenew Build-A-Flower Blog Hop!!! I'm so excited join this hop today! I hope you came from amazing Laura Bassen but if not, please check the full blog hop list in the bottom of this post.





I made a card with gorgeous Build-A-Flower: Rose for today's blog hop. I absolutely love Altenew's layering stamps, especially roses!



VIDEO TUTORIAL

A detailed process of this card you can watch here on this post or in HD at my YouTube channel.


Thank you so much for watching!


CARD DETAILS

I started by stamping three roses from Build-A-Flower: Rose. 

For the pink rose I used Altenew Crisp Inks in shades: Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Purple Wine and Cosmic Berry+Ruby Red. 

For the red rose I used Blush, Rouge, Crimson, Velvet, Grapevine, Espresso+Velvet.

For the leaves I used Sand Dunes, Rocky Shore, Mocha and Espresso Altenew Crisp inks.


I die cut the images using their coordinating dies.

Then, I added selective dry embossing onto Altenew Blush cardstock using my bone folder and scoring board and splattered it with white paint.



 Next, I foam mounted the roses and the leaves on the card front using foam tape to give some dimension. 



I stamped my sentiment from Birds of a Feather stamp set with clear embossing ink on a stripe of white cardstock. Then I heat embossed it with platinum embossing powder. 


To finished my card I've added a few clear sequins and foam mounted my card into white card base.

  69. I really like how you did the slightly different tone of red on one of the roses. I wouldn't have done that, because I would have thought the colors would be too close and clash, but I was wrong, because that just adds a lot of interest. I also really like your choice to do the leaves in brown. The platinum embossing powder works really well those brown colors. You clearly have an amazing eye for color! Thanks so much for sharing with us and participating in this bloghop.
