Today we are hopping with Altenew as part of their sweet violet build-a-flower stamp set launch, we hope you will hop along with us and enter the giveaway too!

Hi Hollowers!

Today we are here to celebrate the release of the new Altenew Sweet Violet Build a Flower Set.  We have a great blog hop going on including a fab giveaway so be sure to read on for all the details! I have two cards and a tutorial too! Here are the projects we will be making…

Altenew gave me the stamp and die set but all projects and opinions are my own

New Altenew Sweet Violet Build-A-Flower

I am loving this new build-a-flower set; in today’s tutorial I decided to make lots of each flower and the leaves and then arrange them on a white and black card background; I love how a background color can make such a difference to the effect you can achieve with such a simple change!  Also, have you looked into the build-a-flower subscription?   This is a monthly subscription plan for the Build-A-Flower sets. Once signed up, you are guaranteed a spot in the monthly BAF releases and will receive a set each month – at a specially discounted price! ($35.00 →$29.99)!  Click here to find out more and sign up!

Tutorial –

Of course I have a full video for today’s project using the sweet violet build-a-flower stamp set and dies, I hope you will feel inspired to give it a go; lots of tricks and tips in there too…
