Stamped Flowers

I've made a card for this weeks Less is More Challenge - the theme is 3 Stamps.

I've used my new AlteNew stamps to stamp three flowers, the flowers are made up using three separate stamps - sounds easy doesn't it, well it took me a whole afternoon to make this card and I'm still not really happy with the stamping.


I added a sentiment from Craftwork Cards and three little black pearls from my stash.


I've seen some beautiful cards on Pinterest using this style of stamps so I think I will be having another go - they say practice makes perfect, watch this space.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 272 - Use 3 Stamps
Crafty Catz Challenge 320  - Monochrome
AAA  Game 62 - Anything Goes

They look pretty darned good to me Pauline. I saw Kay Carley demonstrate these recently and was awfully tempted to get some for myself. Looking forward to seeing how you progress with them. Lx

It looks beautiful Pauline. I love the stamps but I know what you mean as I watched when these were launched as I thought looks a bit tricky. I am sure you will master it on no time. Hugs Jennifer xx

Chrissie said...

I have some Altenew stamps which need really careful positioning so I can understand the time it took you to make this beautiful creation! I think I've cracked how to line them up now which should make future cards a little quicker!
Thanks so much

It looks fabulous to me Pauline but I know what you mean about all the layers. I had a set of the Altenew stamps and gave up with them - I reckon you've cracked it though with the beautiful CAS design xx

I think your card is perfect and I love the pink and black together. A lovely card

Jan Ltc said...

Great Lim card Pauline. I ordered two sets of these new stamps. Can't wait for them to come xx Jan

Pia S said...

I've seen some samples of this stamp set being used, they're all so different. I was wondering if they were easy to use or not, but I guess they're the kind where you don't have to make it too perfect to make them work? I think your CAS card turned out really pretty.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

This is a very interesting stamp set. I think these blossoms are very elegant looking but they do feel a bit undone. I'm sure you'll master them in no time!

Sue said...

Simply beautiful.

Hugs
Sue

Megan said...

I think the flowers look lovely! I just ordered this set, so I hope it won't be too hard! :)

I love Altenew stamps but some of them take a lot of practice. This card looks great though, love the pink and black theme.
Thanks for sharing with us.
