Altenew • Build-A-Flower: Aster Release + Giveaway

Vintage botanical poster inspired card with Altenew Aster. Card by @craftwalks

Hello there!

Today is 15th and that means that there is new Altenew Build-A-Flower product released. This month it’s Build-A-Flower: Aster. It’ll be only available as a bundle, stamp and die sets won’t be sold separately.

Altenew Build-A-Flower Aster

Altenew is celebrating this mini release sharing inspiration from design team and also by giving away certificates to Altenew store.

For my card I was inspired by those pictures in old botanical books or on old posters (or imitations of old posters). Those with light vintage taint. As a vintage-lover I of course get attracted by such pictures.

First I cut a panel out of Arches watercolor paper and made a simple light gray background. First I made it wet with clean water and then added a bit of gray watercolor and washed it around the whole panel.

I stamped the aster and it’s leaves using Altenew inks (colors are linked below) and die-cut it.

A sentiment was stamped onto the panel using Silver Stone ink and then the panel was foam mounted onto a white card base. I adhered the aster onto the panel and added several clear drops to finish off the card.

When it comes to floral stamps Altenew is one of the best out there. And this flower is not exception. Very beautiful and realistic. Tomorrow I’ll be sharing one more card using this set. So stay tuned.

    This card is just STUNNING, your flower is just so real looking I can smell it and it looks like it is going to jump off the card.I also LOVE the color of it, that is so beautiful, nice pretty bright spring color. Thanks for sharing this.

      I used to dislike yellow, before cardmaking. Cannot say it’s my favorite now, but I like it more for sure ;)

    Svitlana, this card is truly stunning and the sentiment is lovely. I have to agree with you about Altenew, in my mind they have cornered the market on floral designs. No one does it better!
