With Love

With Love2
Hello and welcome! This weekend I was thrilled to receive the Painted Flowers stamp set from Altenew. This set is so pretty, and very different from the floral stamps I already have in my collection. Before receiving the set I sent Iwona Palomoutain a message asking for any secrets in stamping, and she told me "Because of the way these stamps are drawn, you really can't mess them up."  It's okay if the outline isn't perfect.  After receiving the stamp set and stamping the flowers I completely agree. To stamp my flowers I used three colors of Stampin' Up! ink: Elegant Eggplant, (I stamped off on paper before stamping the first layer.) Pistachio Pudding, and Wild Wasabi. The sentiment is from the Winnie and Walter brush stroke sentiment set. I created my own label sticker using the Papertrey Ink stamp set Building Blocks that I stamped and heat embossed using white powder.
I love this card, and I hope you like it to!
And now for the winner of the $15 Stampin' Up! gift certificate out of 41 comments Random Number Generator picked # 29

Veronica, this is so pretty! Your layered stamping is spot on, but you are right; you can't go wrong here since the outlines weren't designed to fit perfectly. Thus the whimsical painted look :)
