Hello lovely people. I’m so happy to be with you again for the latest in the Build-A-Flower series. This month it’s the Fashion Monger Dahlia, and what a beauty it is. Welcome – if you’ve arrived here from Linda Westfall’s blog then an especially large welcome. You might want to start at the beginning- at the Altenew blog.

I’ve created two projects using this beautiful new set.

Firstly, I wanted to use the pretty foliage. I had a shape like a scorpion’s tale in mind. I wasn’t convinced by it towards the end, but the focus is on the lovely flowers anyhow!

Do you want to make a bold statement on your handmade cards? The Fashion Monger Dahlia is the flower for you! This set features one six-layer flower and two three-layer leaves. The leaves have a delicate and lacy feel to them to help you achieve a richer look on your projects. The included sentiments feature a gorgeous pairing of fonts to accompany your floral creations. 

Aren’t those leaves amazing! As usual, there’s a great giveaway…

Giveaway Prizes

There are $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 08/07/2021 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 08/09/2021.

I used the same colour combination for the second project.

I love the multiple layers that give you so many colour options. You can really change up this flower. The Fashion Monger Dahlia is a stamp and die set. There’s also a Stamp/Die set with ink bundle (it has 5% off). If you love the whole Build-A-Flower series, then you could sign up for the Monthly Subscription (which gives you a 14% discount).

To create the black and white backgrounds, I just used some pieces of black cardstock trimmed into different widths and adhered with different spacings.

Now all that’s all for the moment, but there’s lots more to see. Next up is Daniel Diaz who is bound to amaze you. If you get lost along the way, I’ve added the whole list below.

Thanks so much for visiting me, and hope to see you again soon x

    There is something so striking about pink against black and white. You’ve, once again, done this new set proud.

    Very dramatic design. I like how you stamped the outline with the same color used to color the flower

    At first I thought you used the washi tape for the backgrounds but I love that you created it from cardstock. I am going to try that!

    Keren, I really love your card, The flowers look like velvet to me, and I like how you arranged them in a scorpion motion, I got it as soon as I read that you were trying to do that. They are so pretty! Thanks for sharing and inspiring us!
