Altenew Build-A-Flower: Bearded Iris Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

July 1, 2021 at 2:00 pm 41 comments

Hello everyone! How are you? Hope you’re having a lovely day. I’m thrilled to be joining in with a celebratory blog hop with the newest Build-A-Flower set; Bearded Iris.

I think Irises are beautiful; almost architectural and with so many varieties. This hop will be full of the most beautiful projects and if you’ve come from Justine Hovey’s blog, then a big hello to you. If you fancy starting at the beginning, then head over to the Altenew Card Blog.

This is what I created using the Bearded Iris set.

Sometimes simple is just the best. You don’t need much else as the flower just speaks for itself. I stamped the iris out using different purples, using a grey outline ink so the outline is much more subtle and allows for the colours to shine.

I think we often shy away from dark bases, but the black really makes draws your eye to the flower. If you are looking for the most elegant and realistic iris, you are in the right place! This stamp set features a gorgeous bearded iris outline with four additional colouring layers, along with stems and leaves. You can use the other iris outline as background foliage, or simply add it to floral arrangements stamped or coloured in with your favourite colouring medium.

If you’d like to get hold of it do visit the Altenew store for the Build-A-Flower Bearded Iris Layering Stamp & Die Set (affiliate links) or the Build-A-Flower Bearded Iris Layering Stamp, Die & Ink Bundle (with 5% off)

If you can’t bear to miss out on this wonderful monthly series of stamps and dies, you can also sign up for a Build A Flower subscription plan which has 14% off.

You can see how I’ve simply used white gel pen dots and added a few dashes around some matching coloured cardstock that I’ve folded into a raised banner. You really don’t need to add too much and if you batch stamp the irises it’s easy to have a bundle of cards made up in advance.

Onto the Giveaway, there is $200 in total prizes! To celebrate this release, Altenew is giving away a $50 gift certificate to 2 lucky winners and a $20 gift certificate to 5 winners! Please leave a comment on the Altenew Card Blog and/or each designer’s blog post on the blog hop list below by 07/07/2021 for a chance to win. Altenew will draw 7 random winners from the comments left on each stop of this blog hop and announce the winners on the Altenew Winners Page on 07/09/2021.

It’s time to go to Linda Westfall and be inspired..

Hope to see you again soon xx
