Painted Flower Playing

Hello! I was SOOOO excited to finally get my hands on the Painted Flowers set from the brand new company Altenew - they sold out very quickly when they released, and I was so excited to finally see them back in stock (although they are out of stock again already!). These showed up in my mailbox yesterday, and I was glad to sit down for a few minutes and play with them this morning. I actually didn't even plan on making anything with them yet - just stamping them out and figuring them out. They are super easy to use though, and once I played a little, I cut these beauties out, and made a card with them!

I stamped and layered them up with several shades of MFT inks, then fussy cut them out. I used a sentiment from another Altenew set I ordered called Label Love, heat embossed in white on some soft gray Simon Says Stamp cardstock. I adhered the flowers with foam adhesive, then stamped some overlapping layers of the extra leaves. 

I am also linking this up with the current Simon Says Monday Challenge - Artsy Stamp (this is DEFINITELY an artsy stamp!):

I can't wait to play with these more! I can tell they will definitely be a favorite!!!
