Hello there!

Today is Altenew Build-A-Flower product of the month mini-release. This month it’s Build-A-Flower: Chrysanthemum.

Our Build-A-Flower: Chrysanthemum set includes 1 stamp set (12 images) and 1 coordinating die set (4 dies).

Chrysanthemums are beautiful flowers which symbolize optimism and joy. With an abundance of petals, these perennials resemble pom-poms. Chrysanthemums bloom in many colors, so you can be creative with your ink choices. We have included two encouraging sentiments to help bring joy to your loved ones.

This special product is only sold as a set, not individually.

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

I had so much fun playing with this product! The stamps a very beautiful, they give this sort of painted look.

I started by stamping flowers using Coral Berry, Cotton Candy and Frosty Pink inks. And I stamped leaves using Evergreen, Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf. All were stamped onto a Solar White Cardstock. Leaves then were die-cut using matching dies from the set.

With flowers there was some additional work ;)

Then I blended Coral Berry onto Solar White Cardstock and die-cut a couple of flower shapes out of this colored cardstock.

I die-cut stamped flowers using the same dies. And then die-cut them one more time using “petals” die, which partially cut petals. I then added small clear foam pieces in the back side of each petal and applied liquid adhesive along the border and in those parts of flowers I wanted to lay flat. Then I placed stamped flower onto the “background” die-cuts (made out of colored with ink cardstock). Creating a dimensional flowers, with petals sticking up and solid pink background underneath.

I created a simple gradient background onto a watercolor panel using Altenew watercolors (to be released this Spring). I choose three shades of pink and added several strokes of each going from darker (bottom) to lighter(top). After my background dried out I added several dark pink splatters.

Next I made a floral cluster using all flowers and leaves and adhered it onto the panel.

I white embossed a sentiment onto a Jet Black Cardstock piece using Pure White Embossing Powder and foam mounted it onto the panel.

Which I then adhered onto a black card base.

Lastly I added several black crystals, to finish off the card.

    Hi, Beautiful job on this flower, I was just over on the Altenew website this morning for a few hours looking at the Build a Flowers and the various flowers, it was so funny, as I scrolled and looked at the examples of pictures on each flower I looked at I could ALWAYS pick yours out right away without even looking at the name below, you have such an ELEGANT and BEAUTIFUL style that u can pick you out anywhere, or maybe I just visit your blog too much, lol, I just have learned a lot from your blog and I appreciate that, Thanks.
    p.s. I picked the Spring Daisy stamp to purchase.

    I love the black to offset the pinks of the card. And the clear foam tape is so smart for this particular flower. I really, really like how that looks. You don’t think that the foam tape is that noticeable until it’s actually not noticeable! Thanks so much for sharing this gorgeous card with us and participating in this bloghop!
