Altenew’s Zinnia Build-A-Flower Inspiration + Hop
Hello crafty friends! The new Altenew Build-A-Flower release features a beautiful Zinnia floral, which I used today with a couple of other Altenew sets to create a pretty arrangement. The Zinnia is a layering set, and quite easy to put together!
The stamps come with a pamphlet that shows you the step by step instructions for building the Zinnia with the layering images.
The other stamps I used were the Hope set (for the large, green leaves), and I stamped additional leaves with the Wildflower Garden set. The ink colors I used were Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, Watermelon and Crimson for the Zinnia. The largest leaves are stamped with Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades and Evergreen. The florals that I filled in the arrangement with are stamped in Thistle, Watermelon, Frayed Leaf, and Cotton Candy.
The sentiments are from the Build-A-Flower Zinnia set, and are both embossed with gold and white embossing powders from Brutus Monroe. Around the sentiments, I added sequins from Simon’s Butterfly Kisses mix.
I wanted to add some texture to the card base, so I ran it through my die cutting machine using the Spring Shower cover plate die as an “embossing folder”. I love how the dry embossed effect brings interest to the card, without distracting from the beautiful floral arrangement.
I hope that you are inspired by today’s card using the new, Altenew Build-a-Flower Zinnia stamp set! Today’s project is also part of a celebratory blog hop, so be sure to hop along and see additional inspiration using this gorgeous, new set!
Thanks so much for visiting me today!
