Altenew Sakura Blossom Release + Giveaway!

 Hello Everyone, welcome to Altenew Sakura Blossom Release!


The Sakura blossom is a lovely Japanese flower, and is known as a cherry blossom in some parts of the world. "Sakura" is derived from the Japanese word for "bloom" - "saku." In the United States, tourists travel to our capital, Washington D.C., to see the flowers bloom at the annual cherry blossom festival. This stamp set features layered cherry blossoms and leaves, and the accompanying die have score details to help you create 3D flowers.




To begin my card, I first die-cut the Sakura Blossom die-cut and then distressed each one. Then for the center of the flower cut the center-die-cut to fit in inside of the small sakura blossom.


Next, I distressed the background with Distress Inks and splattered it with water using paint brush.
I also splattered it with gold watercolor ink from Gansai Tambi Starry Colors.



Then, I stamped one of the sentiment with versamark ink and heat set it with gold embossing powder. Next, I added the Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish off the card.

The Sakura Blossom stamps and dies are now available for purchase at Altenew Store.
I hoped you enjoyed!
