Altenew Vintage Roses

                                            Simon Says Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes
Vintage Roses was the first (of many) layered flower stamp sets I purchased from Alltenew.
I have found it very challenging, especially the second layer of the stem of leaves.
With a good night's sleep and a clear mind I set to work on it once again.  The Altenew ink pads I purchased made a HUGE difference.
I studied Yoonsun Hur's post carefully, watched some Altenew YouTube videos and printed off the Vintage Rose Guide from Altenew's website.  After about 6 attempts I figured it out!
(The stem of leaves uses the second layer from several different groupings in the set.)
Now I can make this card very quickly!  It is so beautiful and worth the effort.
It is so rewarding to see the completed cards.
(Sentiments are from Simon Says and Ellen Hutson.)


  1. Hi. I had the same problem. I colour coded my leaves as I kept forgetting what leaf to use. Great time saver! Your cards are beautiful.

  2. Gorgeous card Pam! It's so elegant and pretty.
    Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
