Altenew BAF Fuschia Blog Hop + GIVEAWAY

Welcome everyone! I’m excited to be joining Altenew in a blog hop celebrating the release of the newest addition to the Build-A-Flower Collection : The Fuschia.

GIVEAWAY

Altenew is giving away a $30 gift certificate to 6 lucky winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or Altenew Scrapbook Blog for a chance to win. Altenew will also draw a winner to receive a $15 gift certificate from the comments left on each designer’s blog on the hop. All winners will be announced on the Altenew blogs on 10/7/2019.

I have two cards to share today using the Fuschia BAF stamp set.

Using the layering color to help line up my images, I stamped the Fuschia flower in Wisteria, Hydrangea, Pinkalicious and Rubellite. The leaves I stamped in a variety of greens including, Parrot, Olive and Moss.

Then I used the coordinating die to cut them out.

I ink blended a piece of white card stock with Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide using a Life Changing Blending Brush from Picket Fence Studios. Then flicked on water and dabbed with a paper towel.

I added my flowers to my card and trimmed the panel down to 3 3/4″ x 5″ and attached to a piece of craft foam. I adhered this panel to a piece of 4″ x 5 1/4″ white card stock which I then attached to a card base made from Fog card stock.

I finished off the card front by stamping a sentiment in clear ink onto Black card stock and heat embossing with Gold Embossing powder.

For my second card, I die cut a circle from a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″ piece of white card stock. I attached this to a panel I had previously ink blended with Wilted Violet and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide ink. I then adhered a single flower hanging down from the circle by tucking a piece of the stem under the circle.

Once the front panel was complete, I layered the front of my card with White and Fog card stock.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration! Thank you so much for joining us!
