Altenew Build-A-Flower: Laelia Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 in total prizes)

Welcome to the October Build-A-Flower blog hop and giveaway, you should have arrived here from Seeka, if not you can go back to the start of the hop at any time by visiting the Altenew Card Blog.

This months Build-A-Flower is the Laelia, it's a stunning layered floral stamp set with six sentiments that allow you to tailor the greeting to your choice..
I've made a card to share with you today, I hope you like it.

I started by preparing an A2 note card using the Dotted Lines Debossing cover die. I stamped all of my images from the BAF Laelia in Obsidian ink and then used Altenew's Crisp dye inks to stamp the layers. I love the extra foliage stamps you get in this set, they really help to fill the card. I sprinkled a few sequins and added a sentiment from the set.

I love how soft and fresh this card turned out, obviously you can use any color combination and I'm sure you are going to see some stunning cards along the hop that will inspire you. Your next stop is Dana Joy.

The Build-A-Flower sets are available as a monthly subscription plan, meaning you get the set delivered to your door each month and save 14%. You can sigh up today using this link >>> BAF Subscription plan
