Altenew Build-A-Flower: Canterbury Bells Release Blog Hop + Giveaway



Hi Friends! Happy March ... just a little closer to Spring and flowers here in the northern hemisphere!

You may have come from the blog of my friend Ashlea Cornell, but if not feel free to start the inspiration parade from the beginning with the Altenew Card Blog

Altenew BAF Canterbury Bells

Until (and even after!) we see them in our backyard, the build-a-flowers from Altenew are a great way to spread cheer. The newest set, Canterbury Bells, is not only gorgeous, but also giant and quick to fill your card.




I really love that with just using one of the Canterbury Bell images, you have a beautiful floral card. No arranging needed. I did add a few of the secondary flowers to give it a little more interest and variety. Although these tiny flowers have coordinating dies, I chose to stamp them directly to the card base and then layer the die cut Canterbury Bells on top.


The black and white stripes on the bottom are the Gradient Lines washi tape and are a quick way to ground the flower.



Here's what three of the Canterburry Bells looks like! You've got a nice wildflower bouquet! I really had an easy time lining the four layers up, so it was fun to just stamp a bunch of these at once and have a lot of extras for future cards.


The patterned background is my favorite Faceted Stars background stamp.


For this card I cut off a few of the bottom bells so the main flower would fit well on the Fine Frames Diamonds Die Set. Then I used the smaller diamonds to make a triptych, and the smaller floral outlines to fill those smaller diamonds.


Finally, I used the Hand Drawn Tile Stencil to fill the card base. The same corner design is used, and makes a nice pattern where it overlaps in the center of the card. 


Lots of fun ways to use this large layered floral!

Prizes:
To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 5 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or the Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win.

  45. As claimed by Stanford Medical, It's really the one and ONLY reason this country's women get to live 10 years longer and weigh an average of 19 KG less than us.

    (And realistically, it has NOTHING to do with genetics or some hard exercise and really, EVERYTHING to do with "how" they eat.)

    P.S, I said "HOW", and not "what"...
