Ditsy Print

I just received a new stamp set from Altenew - my favorite of their new release.   It's one of their layered sets, but on a much smaller scale than their usual large flowers.   Here is my first play with it.

Ditsy Print

supplies: white and Audrey Blue card stock, Altenew's Ditsy Print set, Sweet Dreams and Tropical Forest mini inks, Wplus9 Hello die and stamped sentiment from its companion Hand Lettered Hello, Winnie & Walter Noelle large scallop die

I decided I'd use this pretty little floral above and below a central sentiment.  After I saw it inked, it reminded me of the embroidery on ladies' handkerchiefs, so I cut the panel into a large scalloped rectangle, and added the hello die because of it's pretty feminine font.

Next I switched to purples and repeatedly stamped the little bouquet.  They remind me of little nosegays of violets.......

Ditsy Purples

supplies: white and black card stock, MFT Black & White Stripes pad, Ditsy Prints, Shades of Purple and Green Meadows mini inks, MFT Thanks die

I love florals mixed with stripes, so I cut my stamped panel down a bit and added some stripes above and below it.  Again, I chose my sentiment because of the lovely font.

This set is easy AND fun to use, and I know it will become one of my favorites.  


  1. Just love both cards, Lin - great colors on those posies! On card one I love the bouquet duo on the scalloped panel. On card two I love how you covered the panel and added the striped edges!!

  2. Lin these cards are so sweet and lovely. Its a set to put on my wish list.

  3. Soooo pretty! This looks like vintage fabrics. TFS!

  4. Love the both Lin, the first is ever so sweet!

  5. LOVE these both Lin. It's not a set I've seen used before but it is delightful

  6. Would you EVEN believe I passed on this set??? You've made me mightily sorry about that dumb decision, Lin! You MUST recreate your darling violets in a heart-shaped die cut!

    1. Great idea, Michele, I'll put that on my list of things to try!


Thank you so much for your kind comments - they make my day!
