Altenew Build-A-Flower Cora Louise Peony Release Blog Hop & Giveaway

Welcome everyone and Happy New Year! I’m kicking off the new year with the new Build-A-Flower from Altenew which is the Cora Louise Peony stamp set. This is available for purchase now on the Altenew website.

This is a beautiful layering stamp set with coordinating die.

I stamped my flower in Pastel Sunrise, Canyon Clay, Burnt Red and Mahogany Bark. Altenew has some of the best ink pad sets for layering images.

My leaves I stamped in Marshland and Mangrove Root.

On a piece of white card stock measuring 3 3/4″ x 5″ I added strips of card stock using a variety of greens. Then I stamped a sentiment in Black ink.

I adhered the panel to an A2 size card base and then added the floral image and leaves with foam squares. Very clean and simple with a beautiful pop of color.


$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!

    Hi, Mindy –
    As always, your examples are first-rate. I like the orange-green color scheme. I have peonies, but I don’t know this variety. It does not matter if this peony is actually colored this way or not, because your interpretation is beautiful. Thanks for providing such consistently high-quality exemplars for us to admire!
    Hope 2021 will be a fabulous year for you. You wrote something about your personal life being a whirlwind. I hope that is meant in a good way (just busy) and not in turmoil. You’re too sweet a person to be putting up with any crap.
