I loved this set when I first saw it, but when I got it I was a little overwhelmed by the multi-layer stamping. I tend to overthink things 😆 . I went onto YouTube and watched a few videos of others using the set and it really helped to reignite my enthusiasm and I’m loving it again. So if you ever get stuck YouTube and Pinterest can be your best friends.

For the Pansy there were four stamps.
I started by stamping the Small detailed pansy in Flirty Flamingo.
I moved on to the small filled-in pansy and stamped off once to get a lighter Flirty Flamingo colour.
The three part centre of the flower was stamped in Calypso coral and finally the little triangle centre was in Daffodil Delight.
The leaves were stamped in Soft Succulent. The detail leaf first using full-colour and then the main leaf image over the top after having stamped off to get a softer colour.
This is a great suite and I will be bringing you more projects using the dies and wonderful Designer Series Paper soon 😃
Talking of Designer Series Paper. The wonderful Designer Series paper sale starts today. Head to my shop to check it out.
Life is getting a bit busier again. I am still not back doing card classes or at Rainbows and the toddler group I am starting isn’t happening until September, but I will be accompanying the older people on the mini bus once a month and both of my choirs are back up and doing live-streams, but I will try and find the time to get onto YouTube and do a video on how to use this set. If I manage it, I will share the link with you here.
Until next time, happy crafting
