Mini Delight: Tiny Foliage release

 Hello friends!


I’m here to share a fun Instagram Hop project. Altenew Mini Delight: Tiny Foliage was released yesterday. You can check it out over my Instagram HERE.

I always enjoy using small set of stamps. If you are starting out in stamping, I highly suggest you to try using small stamp set like this. Altenew-MD Tiny Foliage-Antique Gold Embossing Powder-001

 Not only it is easier on the wallet, it also makes you a better stamper.

 I started out with stamping a border with 4 colors. I used the darkest color for the detailed stamping. To keep the scale and space in balance, this did take some planning.

 Planning out a design may actually take a longer time than stamping itself. However, this really is very satisfying once you see the design comes to fruition.

 I gold-embossed some of the solid leaves and even die cut out a few to add shine and interest. It is kind of amazing what a small stamp set can do.
