Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom Release + Giveaway

by Lydia Evans

Hello everyone and welcome to our special Build-A-Flower Release! This month, we have the gorgeous Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom! We are excited that every month we will have a special release of a new Build-A-Flower Set so make sure to look out for these beauties for they are sure to make an incredible collection!

Each of these special releases will comprise of a 6×8 stamp set and a coordinating die so you can easily create your projects. Therefore this will only be available as a set and not as individual products.

Build A Flower Peony Blossom

The Peony Blossom Build-A-Flower has a slightly different approach than our conventional Build-A-Flower sets. The stamp set has three five-petal flowers accompanied by a shading layer and a center layer. You may use these flowers as is, or layer them to create dimension. The matching dies will cut the flowers all the way to the edge without leaving a border. This will help in shaping the petals to desired dimension when using a shaping tool (don't have a shaping tool? You can use the domed end of a pen or pencil!). We included an additional flower die and stamen dies to help you create realistic blooms! Even though we named the set ‘Peony Blossom', since the petals were loosely based on Peony petals, you can let your imagination run wild and create different types of flowers! We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Here's how the set layers:

So some of our talented design team members have created stunning projects to spark your creativity using the new Build-A-Flower: Peony Blossom Set. We hope you love what they have come up with.

I have recently gotten back into card making and scrapbooking. I had taken a 7 year unintentional break. Since starting back up I have come upon Altenew and I must say that I’m overwhelmed by the beauty of all of your stamps and dies. I just purchased my first die from you and can’t wait to get it. I love Peony’s and I ordered the 3-D die.
Your DT has done some real fantastic stuff with this Peony blossom. I will be buying this too!

Trina P. February 12, 2018 - 11:50 am

Love the no white border die cuts! Brilliant concept. Amazing DT samples. Love how easily dimensions can be achieved with the layering stamps or the dies alone. Can’t wait to get this set.

Sara Wright February 12, 2018 - 12:09 pm

I’ve just started scrapbooking… a natural progression from card making. My first layout was using Altenew flowers stamped and cut and put everywhere. I love the Build a Flower sets for how versatile and gorgeous they are.
