Altenew Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi there crafty friends,

Welcome to the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon Release Blog Hop! You should have arrived here from Joni Andaya's blog!

For today's blog post I've created 2 sets of cards using the gorgeous Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon stamps and dies! Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon & Ink bundle is also available for a discounted price here

On my first cards I stamped the flowers in the background, then I used the Bold Alphabet die set to die cut SMILE and LOVE out from the panel. I die cut these letters 5 more times from color card stock, layered them up and added them back into the panel. 

I stamped the sentiments in black ink, added gold ink splatters and done. I love this technique so much, not sure who came up with it first, but kudos!

I thought I'd go less colorful with my second set, for those of you who might like that better. To create the card on the right, I stamped two flowers on white card stock, then I die cut a circle from it. I added some texture to the negative piece using the Cross Stitch Canvas cover die

I created a shaker window: I adhered some acetate behind the circle cut out, then added two layers of foam tape to the back of this panel. I placed sequins and beads inside and adhered the panel to the card base, which I previously attached the circle with the stamped flowers to. To finish off this card, I splattered some black ink and added a pink bow.

For the card on the left I stamped some flowers in various pinks and grays and die cut them. I die cut a white circle also, and stamped my sentiment on it. Using the Cozy Flannel cover die I created a dark gray panel for my white card base. I adhered the circle and added magenta twine around it. I adhered the flowers and finished off this card with sequins and a twine bow.
