Altenew Stamps

Well so far I've had an enjoyable weekend crafting away all on my own. Today my mum has come for the day, we may get some crafting done between chatting and watching Andy Murray hopefully win Wimbledon later. This card I've made with the current challenge over on the Stamping Sensations blog, which is Anything Goes with Stamps and Ribbons. In April at the Ally Pally show I bought some Altenew stamps and this is the first chance that I've had to get them out for a play. I love the results of stamping with the same colour to get the effects of shading. The ink pad that I used was from Stampin Up called Melon Mambo, and for the leaves I used Mossy Meadow also from Stampin Up. The sentiment is from the Birthday Blossoms set. I've added an organza ribbon and mounted onto some matching card.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

  3. I like these two or three stage stamps and of course so much easier now with the clear ones. It was a bit of a pain with positioning using rubber stamps in the past although I've always liked the effect.

  4. Lovely Sue, pretty stamp used, fab colours...
