Hey Lovelies, Welcome to my blog. Today I am excited to be part of Altenew’s new Build a Flower Dahlia stamp set and coordinating die blog hop.

I have not one but three cards using this new Dahlia stamp set and coordinating die. Here is the first card.
This card uses a lot of masking and stamping technique to create the background which looks like a 6×6 background stamp is used to make it. I have a video tutorial showing you how I made it. Also there was a little mistake I made while making this card and you will see how I fixed it.
Here are more photos of the card.
Next I have a set of cards using just the outline image of the flowers and leaves.
I watercoloured the white heat embossed outline images of Dahlia and leaves from the stamp set using Altenew’s watercolor pan set. Then I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out. On couple white panels, I spattered some black and gold metallic Altenew spray to add interest and texture. Then I clustered glued the Dahlia flowers and leaves to form two clusters and adhered using foam adhesives on the centre of the panel. The sentiment from the stamp set is stamped in Altenew Crisp Black ink on a strip of Hydrangea ink sponged cardstock to coordinating with the flowers. I adhered the both the panels to the white card bases using craft foam. Then a few white Nuvo glossy drops to finish off the cards. Here are the photos of the cards separately.
