Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Today I am creating with the Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Layering Die Set ( ALTN ) and participating in a blog hop celebrating this beautiful set. I don’t know about you but I just love all things layering – stamps, dies, stencils, you name it, I love it! So of course, I can’t just create one daisy using this set to use as a focal point, I had to create a dozen or so of them.

The Blog Hop begins over on the Altenew Blog

Firstly, I die cut all the pieces of the Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Layering Die Set ( ALTN ). Following the layering guide, I glued them together. Secondly, I laid out all the flowers and leaves on my background and arranged them until I was happy. Next, I glued all the pieces to my background and trimmed the edges. I chose some Nuvo drops in colours similar to the cardstock I used and added those in as well.

Here is a look at all the dies you get in the Craft-A-Flower: Daisy Layering Die Set ( ALTN ). What’s great is that you get more than one daisy or leaf. This helped me a lot when putting together a lot at a time because if you want 12 daisies, then you only need to run the dies 6 times through the machine.

Altenew also offers a Craft-a-Flower Daisy Gradient Cardstock Bundle (ALTN) with the dies that includes the gradient cardstock colours. These are small pieces of cardstock that can fit through all die cutting machines – even the Mini Blossom Die Cutting Machine ( ALTN ).

I also love creating cards with no sentiments for my stash. This allows me to grab a card and go for any occasion or if I have a minute, I can quickly add in a sentiment for any occasion. Here in this photo, you can really see the two different daisies close up.

Anytime I have a chance to save a few dollars on dies, I’m happy to sign right up! For example, this Craft-a-Flower Monthly Subscription( ALTN ) gives you $6 off each month if you sign up. You can pause your subscription any time. This ensures that you always get the set, too. It’s never out of stock for you ๐Ÿ™‚ Not to mention, every month there is a blog hop like this one to help inspire you to use your set.

Thanks for the inspiration.

You have a lovely simple style! You dress it up nicely with nuvo drops (the colors are spot on for the card!) and the color choice for your daisies give just enough suggestion of shadow for the viewer to see the full array of a field of flowers.
