Altenew Craft-A-Flower: African Daisy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway 

April 7, 2022 at 2:00 pm 53 comments

Hi everyone! Hasn’t it been a great few days with the Altenew 8th Birthday celebrations? Do check out the Birthday post (scroll down) for more details. Today we’re onto something new and beautiful; the latest Craft-A-Flower which is the lovely African Daisy. You may want to begin at the beginning, which is at Altenew’s card blog here, but if you’ve come to my blog via Cheryl Espie then a massive hello!

(all the following links are affiliate ones, thankyou so much)

Here’s what I created using this new set.

The red makes it a real attention grabber doesn’t it. Isn’t it such a glorious flower? It’s really easy to put together and there are different stems- but not that long- so I’ve hidden the cut stems behind the lower flowers- an easy trick! I love playing around with angles so attached the matt layer sticking out. Changing angles just draws the eye around your card design.

You can get hold of this special African Daisy die set here which depending on the colours that you choose, can look like nearly any flower. Add a few more layers of petals and you’ve a entirely different looking flower!

You can see a little folded creases as I wanted to give more dimension to the flowers. They’re nestled on a watercolour background to add a little softness to the hard matt layer and the strong red vibe.

The Craft-A-Flower series is so popular and if you don’t want to miss any of them plus get a discount, then you might like the Craft-A-Flower subscription. This is a monthly subscription plan for our Craft-A-Flower die set. When signed up, you are guaranteed a spot in the monthly Craft-A-Flower releases and will receive a set each month – at a specially discounted price! ($35.99 →$29.99)

You can see the wonderful detail and all the little white gel pen dots and dots of colour matching the watercolour.

    Hi from Dayton OH. Great card. I like the way the soft watercolor background works with the bold red flowers. And on another post in your blog I loved the yellow dots behind the Sunburst Azalea. Such a great idea!
