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

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.

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Daffodil & Glitter Cardstock Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone! So nice to welcome you to my blog. Today we’ve a double celebration; the Daffodil Craft-A-Flower and a lovely new collection of Glitter Cardstock in the most gorgeous colours. I’ve got one project using the new dies and 2 other projects just using the Glitter Cardstock Sets. You may have come from Maryam Perez’s blog, so a big hello if that’s the case. If you’d like to start at the beginning, do go to the Altenew Card Blog.

I’ve used the beautiful Craft-A-Flower Daffodil set (all links are affiliate ones) and I’ve used the Gilded Glitter Cardstock Set (which is 6 colours and 24 sheets in total) and the Forest Canopy Glitter Cardstock set (4 colours and 16 sheets). The Gilded colour is on the inside of the daffodil and the Forest Canopy on the leaves. You can also get the Craft-A-Flower Daffodil and Gradient Cardstock bundle (there’s a 5% discount).

Initially there will be a limited supply of the cardstock so if it’s not available when you want to purchase please sign up for back-in-stock notification on the product page to get notified by email as soon as the glitter cardstock sets are available again.

You might spy the background Moroccan Lattice Cover Die and the thought provoking sentiment is from the Slim Sentiments Die Set. I added some Grafix Duralar Matt film over the top of the Moroccan Lattice die to soften the effect and so it’s not fighting for the limelight with the beautiful daffodil.

Onto the next projects using the beautiful blues; Ocean Reflection Glitter Cardstock Set (4 colours and 16 sheets).

I chose the gorgeous Craft-A-Flower Buttercup die set to decorate the tag. I used some grey cardstock for the base and trimmed off slithers of the different coloured glitter cardstock and added white cardstock to highlight the glitter. Sometimes we can use it sparingly and it still creates impact.

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 07/13/2021 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 07/15/2021.

Glitter is notoriously hard to photograph but the picture gives a real hint of the sparkle from the Ocean Reflection Glitter Cardstock Set. I added strips of each different colour in the set and put the Ornate Cover Die over the top. Adding the Hello from Hello & Hugs die set is the perfect finishing touch.

All that’s needed is for me to direct you to the lovely Karen Brown’s blog.

Thanks for joining me today and I’ll see you soon x

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily Layering Die Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello everyone! Happy Monday (or whichever day you visit!) to you. Hope you’re having a lovely day. Today sees the release of Altenew’s latest Craft-A-Flower die set and this month it’s a Peruvian Lily. What a stunning flower and so easy to create using these dies.

For those of you that have come via Laura Jane’s blog, then a big hello to you! If you’d like to begin..at the beginning!..please go to Altenew’s Card Blog.

Isn’t it a stunning die set! It might look complicated, but it isn’t really and the diagrams from Altenew are so helpful in giving you the directions for which piece goes where. The hardest part is deciding which colours to choose!

(the following links are affiliate ones. I really appreciate your support x). You can get the Craft-A-Flower Peruvian Lily die set from the Altenew store but maybe you’d like to simplify things and get every monthly release in a discounted subscription (($35.99 →$29.99). If you don’t want to have to try and put coordinating colours together, why not try the discounted Craft-A-flower Peruvian Lily with matching gradient cardstock bundle?

The flower doesn’t need much embellishment…you’ve heard the phrase about gilding the lily 😉 I just used the same coloured strips from creating the flower and put them at angles using different widths onto a tent folded white card. Super easy and quick. Finishing off with some white gel pen dots just adds a little depth and detail to it.

Of course, with every blog hop there are PRIZES to be won..

Giveaway Prizes. There is a total of $200 in 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 6/13/2021 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 06/15/2021.

So it’s time to move along to the next blog, and you’re lucky enough to be going to Verity Biddlecombe’s amazing blog.

Thankyou for visiting my blog and for all the lovely comments- they really do make me day!

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Layering Die Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hello lovely blog friends, it’s lovely to be sharing with you again. Today we’re celebrating the release of Altenew’s latest Craft-A-Flower which I think are one of my favourite things that Altenew release. This blog hop starts at the Altenew Card Blog if you want to start at the beginning. You might have arrived at my blog from the fabulous Joylita Dsouza so if that’s the case, a special welcome!

Onto what I’ve created.. well I did stick to the traditional colours this time!

What a stunner of a die set right?! Its a layering die set which is easy to put together. You can get them as a complete set here (the following links are affiliate ones) Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Layering Die Set and also the Craft-A-Flower: Buttercup Die Set & Gradient Cardstock Bundle (has a 5% discount).

You can see the details. To ‘ground’ my flowers, I added them to a simple square die cut frame that I mounted onto my base card. The base is pretty simple too- just a basic tent fold card that I marked the centre point at the bottom and then trimmed a triangle out so you have a banner shape. I used different greens for the bottom and centre of the buttercup and leaves. Looking at the set, it would be easy to change colours and transform the buttercup into another kind of flower.

As usual there is a fab giveaway.

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 05/13/2021 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 05/15/2021.

All that is left for me to do is encourage you to keep hopping over to my lovely friend Michelle Short who is sure to wow you!

Thanks for visiting my blog and hope to see you again soon. The full list of everyone taking part is below.
