Video : Build-A-Flower: Japanese Mum Blog Hop & Giveaway!

It’s time for the next Build-A-Flower set from Altenew and this one is so sweet, it’s called Japanese Mum.  We are hopping along to celebrate the release so you should have arrived here from SEEKA’s amazing Blog!

I love that this stamp has both an outline and is a layering stamp so to me (ie. a person that likes to colour) this means that I have options.  But today I opted for the layers…   but without the outline.

I had some leftovers so quickly threw this card together.  The dotty background is from the Essential Black & White Paper Pack.

and the heat embossed sentiment is from the Sentiments & Quotes Stamp Set.

I have a video showing how this card came together and the No Outline Stamp :Layering process.  I also added some design paper from the Celebrations Paper Set.

and a sentiment from More Than Words.  It’s been an age since I have used this ‘layout’ and I always love it (even though it covers the flowers wink!).

  9. You had me at “mums,” then proceeded to double down and make some absolutelty exquisite cards. Nicely done, as always.

  10. Oh Therese, another divine build a flower, and an amazing card! I love the way you have stamped the flower without an outline and am going to give this a try. The black and white backgrounds seem to draw your focus back to the flower which works on every card!
    Thank you so much for sharing.

  11. Such beautiful cards, love the colour schemes on both. The gentleman grey inks are my go too’s right now. They just seem to play nicely with such a wide range of colour families.
    Love the depth and crispness you’ve achieved with this gorgeous flower.
    Cheers
    Lisa

  12. So pretty. I’m most definitely adding this BAS to my little collection of Altenew sets & that pink ink set, that you for showing that as it helped me choose a colour other than purple. Thank you for being part of this fun hop.

  13. The pinks used in the mum look stunning against the black dotted background. Both cards really show off this great new stamp set.

  18. I always love your cards and always watch your videos on YouTube.
    It’s a great idea to take the black and white background with this gorgeous flower. Very, very nice.

  19. Theresa thanks for the great video and for sharing your beautiful cards. The Mum looks just as gorgeous without the outline stamp. Thanks for haring that.

  20. Both of your cards are gorgeous Therese! I love the colour combination you used for the flower and that new green is beautiful. I liked seeing how you lined up all the layers in the video, sometimes that part can be tricky, I need to remember to use the insert. Thank you for another great video, I always really enjoy your video tutorials!

  21. LOVE the pinks against the bold polka dots, Therese! And great process video……beautiful colors and I must try the no line inking soon! Thanks for your inspiration here today! This latest release is one of my most fave BAF’s to date! The bold sentiments it comes with are awesome!

  23. I love that you show different ways of using the Altenew stamps to get both versatility and value for money. You inspire me to try new techniques. Thanks a bunch!

  24. Gorgeous cards! I love the pinks! However I think this set is going to look amazing in any color! Thanks as always for great inspiration!

  25. I agree about the stamp sets. I love when you have the option of layering or coloring although this one looks a little intimidating to color. It’s gorgeous with the no-outline stamping.

  26. Therese, that pink goes so well with the black and white. It’s beautiful!! I love the second card as well. It’s so lovely. Thank you for the inspiration, it is very appreciated.

  27. I really like seeing the flowers stamped without the outline, and I appreciate the tips to help me line up the layers, because I definitely have issues doing that. And, as always, your videos are a delight to watch and make me happy. Thanks for sharing with us!

  28. Both cards are beautiful! I especially like 2nd card, the background looks very cool and definitely makes the bright colors of the Mum’s pop (even with the sentiment banner covering the center lol). Thanks for sharing both card and for the always amazing inspiration! (mardy14@bellsouth.net)

  29. Your cards are always so clean and neat, I often get myself in such a mess! Love the Altenew products, they are always beautiful.

  30. Beautiful cards. I love the different background using the patterned paper. I really like the no outline stamping. Great touch.

  31. Such beautiful cards! I love the black and pink combination! This BAF is my FAV!!! It’s definitely a must have for my crafty stash!

  32. Gorgeous, Therese … the drama of the black base with the polka dots is fabulous behind that single bloom … and I love how the wavy lines on the DP make it seem that the floral cluster is being gently wafted by the breeze! Hugs, Anita 🙂

  33. This is such a beautiful flower with some lovely sentiments as well. Another BAF beauty! Absolutely love the card inspiration too!

  34. So pretty, Therese! You explain it so well in your video & make these gorgeous creations look soooo easy. Thanks for sharing!

  35. I think I like these mums better without the outline stamp, just like you did. I’m anxious to try that with the layered stamps I have.
