Altenew Build-A-Flower: Daffodil Release

Hello everyone and welcome to Altenew’s Build-A-Flower: Daffodil Release Blog Hop!! Today we are showcasing the amazing daffodil flower.  If you arrived here from the talented Laura Jane blog, then you are on the right track. If you arrived here on your own, then you will want to start at the beginning, the Altenew Card Blog so that you don’t miss a thing!

Take a look at my envelope journal:

Daffodil’s are my favorite flower! They are so pretty and petite. Plus, they aren’t expensive!

Here’s how I created this envelope journal:

Gather 5 envelopes that you want to use.

Add adhesive to the outside flap of the envelope. Not the side that already has the tape.

Slide the flap inside one of the envelopes so that the edges meet.

It should look like this.

Continue to add envelopes.

Cut the flap off of the first envelop to create the book.

Decorate the book to your style. This stamp set has amazing sentiments. So encouraging.

Stamp each page and add journaling cards inside of each flap.

Add photos of daffodils thought out the book.

Add tabs and sentiments on the back page.

Let’s take another look:

Air Mail..with LOVE!

Hello everyone! Good Afternoon on this bright and sunny day.  I love days like this.  The sun is out and I can bask in the sunshine. I just love that.

I’m here today with Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.   The theme is ANYTHING GOES! How great is that.  You can create anything you want.

Since I received my July Card Kit this week, I decided that I wanted to create my card with the Sending Happy Thoughts Stamp Set that is included in the kit.

I wanted to create a clean and simple card for this challenge.

Take a look at my card:

Sending Happy Mail

1. I used the envelopes from that stamp set, water-colored each envelope then cut them out.

2. I adhered them using dimensionals.

3. I stamped the sentiment and hearts.

4. I added rhinestones to envelopes and around the greeting.

I like how the card turned out but I can’t help but feel like something is missing from the top right corner.  Do you feel the same way?  If so, please let me know what you think should have gone there or if it is fine just the way it is.
