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

Happy July!
 AND Happy Canada Day to my Canadian friends!
It's time to share another exciting Altenew Build-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Build-A-Flower Primrose with a blog hop!
https://shrsl.com/2culn

If you arrive from Altenew Card Blog, you are in the right place.

This set of stamps comes with three different images of Primrose. It was not difficult to stamp-layering as each has a distinctive shape. The style of the flowers has a touch of whimsy and yet it can be elegant. It all depends how you want to interpret and define the style.

Altenew Build-A-Flower-GardenTrellis Cover Die-#2

Instead of pink, yellow and orange colors that I tend to choose,  I decided to stamp it the different color scheme and colors. Blue, grey and white look cool on kraft card stock, right?

If there is one thing that I need to point out in stamping the layered flowers...
it is the Altenew Mini Ink Cubes such as THESE and THESE
These ink cubes are perfectly formulated to stamp layered flowers! It never fails me!

This Sea Shore Mini Ink Cube Set and Sweet Dreams Mini Ink were the ones I used in this card.
For leaves, I stamped them in various shade of grey and they fit perfectly in this color palette!

 For the background, I am so enamored with Garden Trellis Cover Die and
I would find another way to use it and so, I trimmed off all 4 edges!
