Altenew Paint-A-Flower: Hydrangea Release Blop Hop & Giveaway

Welcome everyone! It’s time for a new Paint-A-Flower from Altenew and we have a gorgeous Hydrangea set.

Today I wanted to show you another way to use the Paint-A-Flower sets.

I started by heat embossing my image in White embossing powder on a various colors of cardstock that measure 3 1/4″ x 4 1/2″. Using a stamping positioner, like the Misti, was kind of essential in this case because I could stamp the image in the same exact place every time.

I trimmed all the pieces down to thin strips and separated into piles. Then I just sat and created backgrounds by switching up the colors and making sure the floral image lined up. It was actually a very relaxing process and I got quite a few cards out of this.

I adhered the strips to a piece of 80 lb. white cardstock and trimmed it down. Then added that panel to a white card base. I adore the different shades of color with the thick white border.

I finished off each of the cards with a sentiment that is heat embossed in White onto Black card stock.

Here’s another one of the cards. The image and design is all the same but the colors are in a different order.

And one more where the purples are towards the top.

I hope you enjoyed today’s inspiration!

    So, on Altenew’s blog, I saw a snippit of this card and wondered how that was done. Got to you on the hop and found out. Cleaver and smart. And pretty! Can’t wait to get my stamp and make a couple of Mother’s day cards for my girls. Staying home, blog hopping, crafting and staying safe. Take care everyone.

    This a beautiful stamp set. I always hope that my hydrangea winters over and makes me happy when I start to see the first green buds. I love what an elegant card you can make with this stamp. I love that you built your color using paper!
