Altenew's Wildflower Garden set is quickly becoming my new favorite floral set. Wow, it's shockingly easy to make beautiful, one-layer cards!
Like this one.
And this one.
And this one.
Whether it's a single stem or the green field of the second card, this set makes creating easy. The images have so much movement and can carry a whole one-layer card so well, without the need for any embellishment whatsoever. That's handy when designing sympathy and prayer cards, which truly benefit from simplicity.
A quick note about the MISTI. I stamped the green stem on the first card above without the MISTI and instantly regretted it. The image isn't quite as crisp as I would have liked. So I used the MISTI for the next two and was able to get good, solid, crisp images with repeat inking. Even when lining up stamps might be just as easy with clear blocks, I'm finding the MISTI to be very useful. If you don't have one (or a similar contraption that might be cheaper), I highly recommend getting one.
And no, I'm not getting a kick-back from the MISTI manufacturer. I just really like mine...which was still free to me from a very nice lady named Tina. Yay, Tina!
Mercy, grace, peace, and love,
