Each month, I eagerly await the arrival of a new floral die set, perfect for creating stunning 3D flowers that add a touch of elegance to any project.

Must-Have Dimensional Flower Tools

When it comes to coloring the Craft-A-Flower sets, I have found that starting with white cardstock and using Altenew’s blending tools yields the best results. By layering different shades of ink with a light hand, you can create lifelike gradients that bring these flowers to life. The attention to detail in the design of each die set is truly remarkable, making it easy to achieve professional-looking results.

Perfectly Paired Flowers

One of the things I love most about the Craft-A-Flower subscription is the opportunity to mix and match different flower designs to create unique bouquets. Pairing the Craft-A-Flower: Hibiscus with the April Kiss Camellia, for example, can result in a subtropical feel that is perfect for a variety of projects. The versatility of these dies allows you to experiment with different color combinations and arrangements to suit your style.

For my latest card project, I used the Hibiscus and Camellia die sets to create a beautiful floral arrangement on a background embossed with the Tropical Vibes 3D Embossing Folder. I added a sentiment using the Stamp & Paint Flowers Sentiment Set and finished off the card with splatters of Pure White Ink Spray and coordinating enamel dots.
