Altenew Build-A-Flower: Hellebore Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi, Friends!

Altenew has released a new Build-A-Flower set!  Be sure to check out the Altenew Blog to start the hop there and view the full line-up!

I have to admit, the Hellebore is a new flower to me (in the last year) and I LOVE them so I was really excited this is the flower for this release!  This layered stamp is beautiful and the layers make the flower look so realistic!

I began by stamping my flowers in pinks (Rose Quartz, Puffy Heart, Purple Wine, Cosmic Berry) and teals (Mountain Mist, Volcano Lake, Lagoon, and Emerald).  The centers of the flowers are stamped with Warm Sunshine and Carmel Toffee inks.   Then I stamped leaves using Firefly, Shadow Creek, and Mountain Pink ink. 

Once everything was stamped, I die-cut the images and added white gel highlights and black dots to add accents to the centers of the flowers.  To create a frame for my images, I used a ruler and a black drawing pen to create double lines ¾’ around the outer edge of an A2 card panel.

I arranged my flowers and foliage on the framed panel and used foam adhesive to give some of the images some dimension.  The sentiment is stamped in the top left hand corner from the same stamp set.  To finish my card, I added some gold glitter to the flower centers and added some drops all around the card.  I trimmed this panel down once it was dry by 1/8” all around to mat to a card base.

  1. Beautiful! What a difference drawing the two lines to frame the flowers makes. I have a Shooting Star Hellebore, also known as the Christmas Rose in my garden, & the delicate pale colours of the flowers against the dark leaves are so pretty.
