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

Hello crafty friends, 

Today Altenew is releasing this amazing Craft a Flower California Giants die set. I can’t tell you how much I love to use layering dies to create some amazing flowers. It makes it just so easy to add shadows and make it look so realistic. I also used the the new Mixed Media Inks to create my background. I had so much fun creating this card. You will find a step by step below.

And of course Altenew is celebrating the new release with a lot of giveaways and a Blog Hop full of inspiration.

You will find all the products linked below as well as a full Blog Hop line up.

Have you ever tried the new Mixed Media Inks? For me its also the first time using them and I can tell you they are AMAZING. I used 4 different shades of blue to create my background. I just smooshed the ink pad over my panel starting with the lightest one at the top and finishing it with the darkest blue. They create like a very nice texture on your paper. For my flower and leaves I used Altenew Cardstock and to make the flower pop I used yellow cardstock. For my sentiment I used the Hello die which is included in this set. You get the word die and the shadow. 

And that’s it friends, it is soo easy to create a card with the Craft A Flower Sets.

I would also love to read from you in the comment section below and don’t forget to hop along to see all the amazing projects the Design Team has created for you.
