Altenew | Build-a-Flower Peruvian Lily Release

Hello, friends! I am so very excited to join the Altenew Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily Release today! You can go to the Altenew Card Blog or the Altenew Scrapbook Blog to see all the various projects featured using this new release.

The Build-A-Flower: Peruvian Lily set includes 1 6×8 stamp set (14 stamp images) and 1 coordinating die set (2 dies).

The Peruvian Lily, also known as Alstroemeria, blooms in a variety of colors and is native to South America. Some petals are flecked with darker shades, resulting in a distinctive and beautiful look. This stamp set includes a realistic and incredibly detailed Peruvian lily, designed to be stamped in contrasting or coordinating colors. A lovely leaf and painted sentiment finish off the set.


I created two projects for you today.


To begin, I die-cut several white cardstock pieces from the coordinating dies. I figured this would help me to stamp them after. Most people stamp first and then die-cut, but my eye-hand coordination can be off sometime (just being honest, lol). Instead of ink pads, I decided to color with watercolor brush markers.

I selected a few colors and mounted all my stamps on acrylic blocks first to make the process easier. These are the colors I used:

ACS_1444 (1)

I colored each stamp with the brush marker and then stamped the layers.




Once I had all the pieces done, I created the bases. I used Distress Oxides for the backgrounds. All products are linked below.


I hope you were inspired by all my work!
