Altenew – Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory Release

Hello friends! I am back today to share a project created with the new Altenew Build-A-Flower: Morning Glory set.

This set, which includes 1 6×8 stamp set (21 stamp images) and 1 coordinating die set (3 dies), contains two beautiful multi-layered morning glories along with leaves and vines. Morning glories produce typical funnel-shaped blossoms in white, red, blue, purple, and yellow. You may stamp these flowers in any Altenew ink colors to get great results!

You also have the option to get the Secret Garden Mini Cube set with it as a bundle:


I went with a home décor project this time.

The diagonal design was the starting point. I used a floral border cut file (ID #249910) as my guide. I cut it out of white cardstock and gave it some color by blending Frayed Leaf Crisp Ink all over it and Evergreen just on the edges. I then started stamping my flowers. Here are the colors of Crisp Ink I used:

  • blue flowers: Caribbean Sky, Turquoise, Persian Blue, Sapphire
  • orange flowers: Pink Pearl, Peach Perfect, Heart Beat
  • leaves: Sweet Leaf, Hunter Green

To make the diagonal design stand out more and give some color to the background, I used a dotted patterned paper from the Reflection Collection in the top portion of the page. I then placed the cut file along the edge between the two papers.

Once I had everything in place, I arranged flowers and leaves on top of the cut file, foam mounting them to achieve lots of dimension.

To finish the project, I stamped vine swirls around the whole design and added light green enamel dots, as well as green splatters with the Frayed Leaf Shimmer Ink Spray.

  1. What a beautiful layout. I love the diagonal; it just works, especially with how these flowers are angled. Thank you too for sharing the colors of inks you used. That’s a really nice coral-y orange color, and I tend to be so bound by the sets that I forget I’m allowed to mix and match! Thanks for sharing with us.


  2. I’m with you Enza, Altenew’s floral’s scream home decor to me. I love this and I DO think it would make a great Mother’s day gift!
