Just look at that floral spectacle! And we haven't finished there! We have lots more in the pipeline and we are so excited to share them with you. Some of the sets have even been inspired by requests we have had from you.

We have so much inspiration to share from our design team and special guests. We can't wait to share it with you, so let's get this show started!

I thought it would be nice to start with the set that started it all, Build-A-Flower: Camellia.

Altenew Camellia Lydia Evans 1

I started by stamping the second layer of the camellia flower in Forest Glades. I then masked this off and stamped two more of the same image this time using Frayed Leaf ink. I then stamped the leaves only using two of the layers using the same inks I used for the flowers. I just love how the monochromatic color combo looks.

I then used the Bold Numerals Die Set and cut a three and a five out of some Forest Glades cardstock with some gold glitter washi tape at the bottom. Once die-cut, I added the number die cuts into place using foam tape.
