Contraband alert!!! I am known to (upon occasion) use stamps from other stamp companies. *gasp!* My friend Janine calls it "rubbadultery." I can't help it - there are so MANY beautiful stamps out there that I succumb to their lure sometimes. I make no apologies for my moments of weakness. Seriously, how can anyone resist some of the gorgeous floral images offered by Altenew?
This one is from the Peony Bouquet set, and is a four-step photopolymer stamp. It was easy to line it up and stamp accurately using the Stamparatus (you really need one when they become available June 1st!). Bermuda Bay seems to have taken my fancy these past few days. The solid base image and first detail image were stamped in Pool Party, and the outline and final detail image were done in Bermuda Bay.
I did use some Stampin' Up! stamps here. The greeting is from Rose Wonder and the burlap fringe is from....wait for it....Burlap! Minimal fussy cutting involved. Using the Stampin' Trimmer, I cut around the image in a square, stopping just short of the leaves. Then all I had to fussy cut were the leaves. Saved my sanity, or whatever is left of it, LOL!
