Altenew Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Hi everyone!

Happy Wednesday (again)! I am honored to be a guest designer for Altanew's newest Build a flower stamp set and dies : Snapdragon. This set is so much fun to work with and the color combinations you can use are so many!!!!

If you are following the hop you have probably arrived from Patricia Roebuck blog and your next stop is Teri Wilson. And if you are starting from here, head over to the Altanew blog and start your hop from the beginning.

Before we go onto the cards ,I wanted to mention that Altenew offers couple options to purchase sthis stamp set and dies:
Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon
Build-A-Flower: Snapdragon & Ink Bundle - 5% discount
Build-A-Flower Subscription

I had so much fun  with this month's set and dies that I ended up creating bunch of cards. I used my MISTI to stamp bunch using different color combinations. Once I had everything set up in my MISTI tools (I used multiples, so I didn't need to remove any stamps) it went like a breeze. 
Also, there is a video below showing you a fun technique how you can get watercolored look with your layering stamps. Scroll down to watch and see all the samples I came up with! 

























GIVEAWAY:

Beautiful. Love your background and the gorgeous snapdragons! I loved your technique with the water color paper and flowers. I enjoyed watching your video and seeing the lovely flowers emerge. I love the embossed stems, as well.

Such beautiful cards. Each one more beautiful than the previous. I think my absolute fav is the black background one because of the detail of the cover die. Just a stunning bunch.
