Altenew Build-A-Flower: Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Altenew Build-A-Flower Bellaroma TeaRose Release

Hello, hello and welcome!  I am so excited to be part of  Altenew\’s February Build-A-Flower  Release and Blog Hop.  This month\’s flower is the  Bellaroma Hybrid Tea Rose and it is a real beauty.   Layering stamps are lovely, easy and fun to use and I especially enjoyed creating with this set.  Altenew has  a new Build A Flower release each month and you can subscribe HERE so you don\’t miss a single set.

Let\’s get started!  I was so inspired that I stamped and die-cut a ton of flowers!  I mass produced the flowers and leaves using two sections of two stamping platforms that I rotated through the four stations.  I have three cards in this post and will be using The Tea Rose in another post next week….please stop by to see that one too.

Yellow Rose Card

The Yellow Rose of Texas

I  live in Texas, so my inspiration for this card was \”The Yellow Rose of Texas\”.  I wanted a dramatic background to contrast with the yellow so I used the \”direct to paper\” inking method.  I selected 8 different colors of ink pads in shades from turqouise to dark blue.  I rubbed each color in sections of the cardstock and I kept the middle softer and the edges darker.  At first, the background looked like a terrible mess but as you add layers it turns into a bold and complex panel.

Direct Ink to paper blue background

  As far as stamping the rose,  I experimented and found I liked a monochromatic color scheme using similar hues with this set.  The front rose has three shades of yellow.  I wanted more contrast with the background, so for the back rose I didn\’t stamp the base layer but chose to leave some white space.  I wanted a neutral leaf so I selected two shades of grey.

I adore Altenew\’s Burlap Texture Die and knew it would be a striking backdrop for a single rose bud.  I wanted some contrast and variation on the die cut so I hand inked a background panel using all the colors in the Coffee Break Mini Ink Cube Set.  Be sure to let the panel dry before you die cut so you get a crisp cut.  I wanted vivid green leaves so I used The GreenValley Mini Ink Cube Set.  I used the middle two colors, Green Fields and Shadow Creek. 

Altenew Simply Hello with copper mirror card stock.

The sentiment (Simply Hello Die) is so reasonably priced and was die-cut from copper mirror cardstock.  To finish the card I added three yellow dots from New Day Enamel Dots, which I love because the set contains a beautiful variety of colors.

For this card I wanted to add a pink rose as well.  I wanted a clean look so I skippped the bottom layer stamp on the two roses and leaves and I love the way it looks!

The Cross Stitch Canvas Die is a beautiful way to add texture and interest to your background without distracting from the beauty of your focal point.  I added a small piece of Painted Grid Washi Tape to the top of my sentiment for a little added interest.
