Altenew Build-A-Garden: Magnificent Branch Release Blog Hop + Giveaway ($200 total prizes)

Hi! I hope you are enjoying the blog hop celebrating the release of the very first Build-A-Garden set! You must have arrived here from the blog of Laurie Patterson

Little bit about the Build-A-Garden: Magnificent Branch Layering Set

"Love genuinely, and bloom with grace. Create two card fronts at once with this first-of-its-kind floral stamp set! The imaginative set features a magnificent tree branch bearing flowers that you wouldn't normally see together in nature. Cut the design just right for a card featuring the cupped rose and another card featuring the flat rose. Stamp the heartwarming sentiments and quotes to inspire your loved ones. We hope you love this stamp set as much as we do!"
Enjoy our Build-A-Garden project set, an exciting monthly package that is sure to get the creative juices flowing! Each month includes a stamp set along with a coordinating stencil set and/or die set PLUS a customer-favorite Mini Blending Brush! Build your collection of brushes from month to month so you will never be left looking for the perfect tool while crafting.

This set contains the following products:
  • one 6" x 8" stamp set containing 10 stamps made in the USA from high-quality photopolymer
  • one layering stencil set containing 4 stencils that coordinate with the stamp set
  • one Mini Blending Brush for ink blending
Note: These products are NOT sold separately. 

I created a one layer card using this set.

I stamped the image across the card base. With little bit of masking, it is easy to cover the entire card base with the branch. I inked the leaves using shades of grey. For the flowers I used Coral Berry, Ruby Red, Fresh Lemon, Moss and Milk Chocolate.

The sentiment is from the CYL Fragrant Florals stamp set. To finish, I used the Fine Liner Pen to draw lines over and under the sentiment. Here is another look at the card.
