Build-A-Flower: Carnation Release & Giveaway!

The newest Build-A-Flower: Carnation is released at Altenew today and as well as the gorgeous Carnation it has the most beautiful leaves and loads of dies to match.  Today I decided to use the leaves and stamp out a background.

Altenew - BAF - Carnation - Bold Alphabet - Birch Land - You Are - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I used the Cherry Wood Cardstock to create a Bold Alphabet sentiment and added a little bird from Birch Land Stamp Set.  I coloured the bird and my small sentiment strip with some Artist Markers before stamping the You Are Stamp Set sentiment.Altenew - BAF - Carnation - Bold Alphabet - Birch Land - You Are - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

  1. These leaves make a beautiful background. Thank you for all the inspiration you provide and for the opportunity to win a great prize!

  2. Such a gorgeous creation, Therese. I had already spotted the lovely leaves in this set, making it extra versatile. Love how you’ve paired the stamping with the awesome ‘you’ and the sweet bird.

  3. Therese, this carnation set is beautiful, these flowers are often kind of in the shadow of roses but they are just as beautiful and fragrant too.
    The leaves are amazing, I love pressing them down on books.
    I love the background you created with them and that sentiment is perfect for the little bird to rest on.
    Thank you for the chance to win!!
    Hugs,
    Maria Rodriguez.

  4. Hi Terese! It is so easy to focus on the flower that I overlooked the fact that you can make an equally beautiful card with just the leaves. And the bird sitting on the sentiment captures your attention.

  5. This is such a cute card. It’s always nice to see the supporting stamps get some attention because they are often overlooked. I love love love Altenew stamps and I especially love that they make my cards look so professional and complicated :). Thank you for the inspiration and for the chance to win.

  6. My favourite flowers are a rose and carnations. I’ve just ordered the newish rose die and stamp set and would to be in the running to win this carnation one please. Thankyou for being in the Altenew blog hop. Their goidies are fabulous and easy to make all things not just cards. I REALLY LOVE this lol. Merry Christmas to you Theresa a d your family. Xx 🎅 xx

  7. A lovely CAS card that shows off the leaves in the set and also the fact that you could use a floral set to make a masculine card too.

  8. Love your card! So simple but not, beautiful allover leaves, adorable touch with the bird but not a distraction. Good taste, as usual.

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
