Build-A-Flower Blog Hop + Giveaway

by May Sukyong Park

Hello, Altenew fans!

I hope you are enjoying the Build-A-Flower Blog Hop. If you have hopped over from Jennifer McGuire's Blog, then you are right on track. You can also start the blog over on the Altenew Card blog if you have missed a couple of hops. The full list can be found at the bottom of this post.

I created two projects for this hop. You can see one here and the other is on my personal blog. I decided to create cards for this hop and I really want to improve my card making skills.


For this card, I used the Build-A-Flower: Sakura set. For the inks' colors, I opted to use the Pocket Full of Sunshine Ink set for the flowers and for the leaves I went with Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen.

I created masks for both flowers sizes and stamped the flowers first using the different shades of yellow. Then I added the leaves, the sentiments, and three enamel dots to create flow. To make the card pop a little more I mounted the white cardstock onto some dark grey textured cardstock. The yellow colors stand out a lot more.

So lovely and since it’s snowing, it is the promise of spring.

Gail Plaskiewicz March 1, 2018 - 11:48 pm

Oh my gosh, you have made me one very happy girl! Why, you ask? I’m going to tell you. You made a card with my favorite color in the whole wide world and I love, love, love it! I love the flowers too. They are so pretty! They remind me of the flowers I could have in my yard if those mutant ninja squirrels didn’t destroy them. However, when I stamp, they can’t come anywhere near my stamps and for that I am so glad and I can stamp to my hearts consent.
Thank you for showing us your colorful card (I love you coloring!) and for giving us the chance to win something. I love this hop!

Karen Rice March 2, 2018 - 1:05 am
