Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Cistus Layering Die Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway + Video!

Have you tried watercolouring die cut flowers? It’s so easy and what a fabulous unique finished look!

But first did you know it’s time for another Craft-A-Flower release from Altenew and this one is the beautiful Cistus. And did you arrive here from TENIA’s fabulous Blog? if you did, then you are in the right place!

This Craft-A-Flower: Cistus Layering Die Set is a beauty and today I used the Artists’ Watercolors to add some simple colouring.

Altenew - Craft-A-Flower - Cistus - Featured Sentiments Die Set (card video) 1

I thought a Gray Cardstock background would help the flower pop.

The sentiment is from the Airbrushed Flowers Stamp Set and was die cut with a Featured Sentiments Die.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at YouTube.

  1. Love this cardโ™ฅ The soft colors are sooo pretty.
    AND I also want to let you know that I ALWAYS watch your live video BUT the day after. Because live is sooooo late in Sweden, hehe.

    Have a lovey day/Gunilla

  2. Such a beautiful, elegant card. Never heard of Cistus flowers. They must be from another world! lol Google search should help. This die set is going on my wish list for my next order.

  3. The colors are so elegant and make the card so beautiful. It’s a pretty flower.
    And…I often watch your YouTube video, not always, but often. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  4. Great colors! The neutral grays make the flowers “pop” off the card. The black sentiment strip coordinates perfectly with the grays. How convenient! Ya can’t let a black sentiment strip go to waste- you never know when you could use it again! ๐Ÿ™‚
    The Altenew build-a-flowers are terrific! I’m collecting them ALL….now I need a bigger crafting room!

  5. Oh gosh, this is so gorgeous. LOVE how those flowers just pop and are framed by the grey background.

    1. Hi Sheila, all your comments came through (they must have been awaiting approval so you couldn’t see them (hope this helps) Thanks so much for your patience, I think that if you have been apporved next time it will work automatically, but it’s technology and I’m not the best at that lol. Hugs Tx

  12. Greetings from Oregon, love the design, simple but what made it gorgeous is the water coloring. Just wonderful

  13. Love how your delicate watercolouring adds so much softness and a wonderful natural-ness (is that a word?) to these lovely blooms, Therese … they’re just so gorgeous against the grey … YUM! Hugs, Anita ๐Ÿ™‚
