Altenew Build-A-Flower: Build-A-Flower: Parrot Tulips Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi Friends! The first of the month always brings a bit of excitement as we get to debut the newest chapter of the Altenew Build-a-Flower legacy, and this we are featuring Altenew's Build-a-Flower Parrot Tulips!

You may have come from the blog of Nathalie DeSousa, but if not feel free to start at the beginning with the Altenew Card Blog.

BAF: Parrot Tulip

This set comes with one giant bloom, which has so much detail it looks like it could be featured on a designer wallpaper. Even with all that detail, however, notice that there are only three different layers you need to stamp to get that full look. This means less work on your part, and one fewer ink shade you need to come up with!

Let's take a look at what the three layers look like when they are stamped together:

Doesn't it look like a damask pattern? All these peachy/coral colors make me happy.

These sentiments also come with this set. Each of them can stand on their own, but I wanted to "go for broke" and use all three of them. Why not, right?

White satin sequins and some Positivity washi tape are also added. 

If you ever think you're running short of patterned paper (ikr, but hey, it could happen!) then take a walk to your bookshelf, and pick your least favorite book to sacrifice. You could also pick up spare books at yard sales for 25-50 cents if you can't bear to cut into your own books. I like how book pages are mostly neutral colors and really let your florals shine.

Giveaway Prizes

$200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 1 lucky winner and a $15 gift certificate to 10 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post by 12/06/2020 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 11 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 12/09/2020.
