Altenew Build-A-Flower: Build-A-Flower: Parrot Tulips Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Happy December, my friends!
It's time to share another exciting Altenew Build-A-Flower with you.
We are celebrating this month's Build-A-Flower with a blog hop!


If you arrive from the blog of Jenny Colacicco, you are in the right place.
If not, come and join the fun hop for ideas and inspiration. 
 
I know that I say this often, but Altenew's Build-a-Flower truly is one of the best floral stamp set subscriptions. This month's Parrot Tulips proves just that.

Altenew-BAF Parrot Tulips-Sphere Stencil-Feeling Dotty Stencil-Embossing Paste

Due to the size of stamps, I thought it is perfect to create a slimline card.

Altenew-BAF Parrot Tulips-Sphere Stencil-Feeling Dotty Stencil-Embossing Paste-001

This card measures roughly at 4"x 9". Thanks to the stems and leaves, it is so easy to layer the elements. I used Sphere Stencil to ground the image.  Then I added and embossing paste with Feeling Dotty Stencil.

Thanks to the layering details, there is not a lot of embellishments needed.

I hope that you like what I created for this release hop.
