Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily Layering Die Set Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

 

Altenew Craft-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily Layering Die Set

Hello friends!  Today is release day for  Altenew's June Craft-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily.  I just adore each month's kit because there are so many die-cutting possibilities.  You can subscribe HERE for a specially discounted price (plus you won't miss a single kit) or you can purchase the Peruvian Lily or you can buy the Peruvian Lily + the gradient cardstock bundle.
Blue and orange gel monoprints
Each month I usually make my own paper for my craft-a-flower kit...sometimes I watercolor panels, or ink blend but this month I was in a gel print mood.  With gel prints, you never know what you are going to get so I start with colors in mind and then start printing.  These are pretty basic prints but they look so pretty when die-cut. For June I was thinking either an orange or pink bloom with a blue background so I laid out some prints.  I love the blue background...kinda Monetish and I ultimately decided on an orange and yellow lilly.  I will be using the pink panels soon.

These dies were easy to line up and the lily is big and showy.  The sentiment is one of my favorites from the  Essential Sentiment Die Set.

  2. Truth be told, I tend not to like gel plate backgrounds because you can often see the lines from the brayer. Using them to make die cut flowers however is phenomenal. This is soooo pretty.

  3. Since I am very good at layering in general but I find Altenew's Flower Builder layering stamps and dies super easy to use. I am now able to make amazing cards. Thank you Altenew!

  9. The blue has a tropical vibe and the Lilly finish also adds the tropical look. Very nice gel plate finishes. I don’t use my gel plate enough. You gave some inspiration to pull it out and use.
