Altenew Craft-A-Flower: California Giants Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

August 7, 2021 at 2:00 pm 43 comments

Hello everyone! How are you?

I’m so pleased to be joining in with Altenew’s latest Craft-A-Flower release- the California Giants. This is a really fun flower and as usual there’s a blog hop with lots of designers taking part. You may have come to my blog via lovely Seeka, so hello if that’s the case! You might want to go to the very start- so do visit the Altenew blog if that’s the case.

All following links are affiliate ones- giving me a little extra but costing you nothing! Thanks for your support x

I decided to create something a little unusual with this set. I was just feeling in a rainbow mood. So I did stack just a few layers together 😉

Isn’t it a fabulous die set! Obviously you wouldn’t need to do this- you could just use the individual layers as they’re beautiful by themselves. I simply layered lots of colours on top of each other, shifting each layer slightly. The leaves and sentiment are also part of the set.

If you love the Craft-A-Flower series as much as I do, you might want to consider getting a monthly subscription. This is a monthly subscription plan for Altenew’s Craft-A-Flower die set. When signed up, you are guaranteed a spot in their monthly Craft-A-Flower releases and will receive a set each month – at a specially discounted price! ($35.99 →$29.99).

Giveaway Prizes.

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 8/13/2021 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 08/15/2021.

If you are interested in getting the California Giants Die Set, there’s also a California Giants Layering Die Set & Gradient Cardstock Bundle (gives you 5% off).

Now it’s time to go onto the really lovely Verity Biddlecombe to see what awesome project she’s designed.

If you need the whole list of everyone taking part, I’ve added it below.

    This is just a huge WOW!. Thought it looked like a really resplendent zinnia…or that’s what they call them here in California. All those colored layers make it really effulgent.

    Your card is stunning. I love that layering technique — I would never have thought to do this, but I’m going to go through the CAF sets I have to see if it would work on any of them — fingers crossed!

      Thanks. I use a wet adhesive that has a fine point nib. Mine is the Tonic Deluxe Adhesive but any wet adhesive would do x
