Hey there friends! I’m so excited to be back for a new Altenew Build-A-Flower Blog Hop! If you started the hop from the beginning then you would have come from Therese Calvird’s Blog. If you’re just starting here, WELCOME! You can still make your way around the entire hop by clicking the link at the bottom of my post.
This Altenew BAF – Fuchsia Stamp is such a unique and gorgeous layering stamp set. It’s unlike any stamp I own. I used the stamp with black, pinks & purples to create my color scheme. I also stamped the leaves and stem in coordinating colors of green. After I had all of my stamping complete, I used the coordinating die to cut out all of my images. I then went to work on my layout. Now, I’m not sure if it’s the inks I used or just the way this stamp set layers, but I feel like the layers almost have a colored marker look to them (like I colored with Copics). I LOVE THAT!
I didn’t really have a photo in mind when I started stamping these flowers. I honestly was just playing with the stamp and really loved the first color combo I used; which was the pink & purple. So after I had the stamps complete I went back to my photos on Instagram to see if anything sparked. Then, I remembered these photos I had snapped at a garden during our family photo shoot. I printed 4 of my favorites from that day on a single 4×6 sheet of photo paper. The photos ended up being a smidgen smaller than I liked, but I didn’t want to fuss with reprinting them so I just went with it.
I used the Broken Chevrons Stencil with a blue Distress Oxide Ink to create a subtle background on my white cardstock. I then cut two film strips using my Cricut on a light grey cardstock just to create a little bit of layering on the background. I then assembled all of my stamped flowers across the grey cardstock.
I positioned my photos on the top left and bottom right to help balance the layout. I then fussy cut the word “Special” from one of the Die Cuts from the Live Your Dream Scrapbook Collection. I then used the Colorful Alphas from the Our Family Scrapbook Collection to spell out the word “Place”.
I also added a Chipboard Sticker and Wood Veneer Origami Hummingbirds from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. I wanted to add a bit more wood veneer, so I grabbed a few Wood Veneer Hearts to help balance the design. After I had the journaling in place I felt like I needed another pop of black at the top of the layout, so I added a sentiment from the Mini Stamp Set that is included with the Reflection Scrapbook Collection. The final thing was black splatters & the date using the Roller Date Stamp to call the layout complete.
Now you can take a look at my process video showing how this layout came together:
