Altenew Build-A-Flower: Stargazer Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Happy December Friends!

Welcome to another release from Altenew, and I am super excited to be here to help celebrate. This time Altenew is releasing the Stargazer Build-A-Flower Set. Make sure to stop by the Altenew Card Blog for all the release details, plus it will also get you started on today's blog hop if you haven't started yet. If you have, you would have arrived from the uber-talented Kelly Griglione's blog. 

Today I have a few cards to share with you featuring this beautiful Stargazer Set, so thanks for hopping by and let's get started.

CARD DETAILS

For this first card, I began by using the little floral cluster included in the set to stamp out rainbow clusters onto the background. Since I only have a few inks from Altenew, I used other inks that I had in my collection. You can use whatever you have, but Altenew does make it easy for you as they also sell this kit also with an Ink Bundle.

The inks I used were water-reactive, so to avoid coloring in the flowers I sprayed the panel with water to allow the ink to bleed and then naturally color in the flowers for me. I then just painted in the centers with the coordinating rainbow ink colors.

Next, I stamped out the flower. Again here stretching out the ink pads I did have by doing some first and second generation stamping. I then die cut the flower and the leaves with the coordinating dies.

To the background, I then added the Mega Friend die that I die cut twice (once in white and black) to add a shadow layer to the sentiment and make it more visible on the card front. I then glued the Stargazer flower in place and added the black sentiment strip across it that I had heat embossed using white embossing powder.

For this next card, I chose a yellow and orange palette. Again on Bristol paper, I stamped out the clusters of flowers and then colored them in using the same ink line I had stamped with earlier. I then stamped out the Flower and leaves again and die cut them with the coordinating dies and glued them to the card front using foam adhesive.

For the greeting, I simply stamped the sentiment along the bottom of the card.

To finish this card, I added some coordinating pearls added glossy accents to the centers of the flowers.
