Altenew Craft-a-Flower: Butterfly Bush Blog Hop

Today I’m excited to be joining in Altenew’s Blog Hop for the release of the Craft-a-Flower: Butterfly Bush stamp set! Aren’t these flowers beautiful? I also appreciate the fact that this set is extremely easy to put together. All of the pieces are large and easy to adhere together. Yet look at how beautiful it turns out!

There is also an Altenew Giveaway with this hop, so scroll down to see the details!


  • I cut the background panel from a piece of patterned paper in the Verdant Walk Paper Pack.
  • Next I backed a piece of white cardstock with a Double-Sided Adhesive Sheet and die cut the Ornate Cover Die from it.
  • I removed the release paper and adhered the ornate white die cut to a matching piece of white cardstock.
  • For the rest of the card, I cut all 3 layers of the flower, the leaf, the stem and the butterfly from the gradient patterned paper found in the Altenew Blends Paper Pack.
  • I colored the body of the butterfly with a Jet Black Artist Marker.
  • After assembling all of the pieces according to the directions in the Layering Guide, I glued them to the white background panel using liquid glue.
  • I die cut the sentiment using the Signature Words Dies from the same patterned paper as the background panel.
  • I cut the sentiment backing using the Nesting Ovals Die Set, & attached it to the card with Foam Tape.
  • Finally, I attached the white panel to the background panel with Foam Tape for more added dimension..
