I have been eyeing the step stamping that you do to achieve the look of dimension in flowers. There are many companies making them, my LSS just happened to be selling this set so I decided to go for it. Thankfully Altenew has on their site a template to show you how to line them up which is very helpful. This was my first attempt at them and I think they turned out pretty good. I don't feel I am very good at mixing colors well but this was my favorite combo of stamp colors for the pinks I tried.
The leaves in the set also has step stamping, I think here I only did the two steps instead of 3, but I can't remember I have since done a sheet for myself and wrote the colors of ink I used for future reference. I hand cut them all out to add to the card, I popped up only the center flower since this was being mailed to my nephews wife.

I am once again sharing this post over at Stephanie's Roses of Inspiration Link up post. If you have some extra time on your hands stop by and see all the wonderful links of inspiration that is over there, you won't be sorry. I see she also has posted some new things in her Etsy store. I am eyeing one of her bags she posted, I try not to buy things I can make myself but I don't think I am going to be able to hold back on this one.
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and I would love for you to comment and let me know you stopped by,
Thanks and have a wonderful rest of your week,
