Altenew-BirdofParadise-SayitwithLove-ApothecaryLabelsEnchan tedGoldString-Virginia#1

This lovely layering stamp set "Bird of Paradise" is easy to work with. I googled the floral iamg, so I can stamp them true to what they really are.

Altenew-BirdofParadise-SayitwithLove-ApothecaryLabels-EnchantedGoldString-Virginia#2

Once I was happy with the main image, I proceeded to stamp around the edges in green with one of the solid floral stamp. I then white-embossed the sentiment (Say it with Love) and then stamped the Apothecary over.

For this card, I stamped the Bergenia Builder in the background in Obsidian Pigment Ink.

I then inked up the Apothecary Label in Lagoon. I then white-embossed and die cut it.

Feature Stamps/Die #4: Garden Trellis, Bergenia Builder

Altenew-GardenTrellis-BergeniaBuilder-Virginia#1

Again,  I used part of the Garden Trellis to show off the Bergenia Builder
Altenew-GardenTrellis-BergeniaBuilder-Virginia#3

The Bergenia Builder comes with a few single flowers and leaves. I added on top of the stamped images for dimensions and interest.

Wow, I was going to say your Bird of Paradise was my favorite, but then I scrolled down and saw the garden trellis and Bergenia card. That is an all-time favorite for me! I wasn't going to order that stamp set, but now I think I will. The only thing I can add here is it was a little difficult to finally get to the comment section so I could be considered for the drawing. I couldn't find it at all on the first stop, and I had to really hunt for it on your site.

...these cards are so different yet equally stunning! I appreciate the "partial" trellis-- a great reminder you don't have to use things exactly as they come, and it provides a more realistic feel to support the flowers. Thanks so much-- Stay Safe and Be Well.

I think the Bird of Paradise is stunning when it's inked up & I like the partial leaves around the edges. I love the Black on White technique of the Bergenia in your second card with that beautiful pop of blue. I can certainly see why the third is your favourite. I have to agree. You've put time & thought into these & it sure shows. Thanks for the inspiration & hope you are keeping well.
