Addicted To Stamps & More #324...

Hi! I am here today with my first post for the Addicted To Stamps And More challenge for 2019. I hope you guys had a great start to the new year. The challenge this week is to create a CAS card, a theme very close to my heart.

I created a set of cards with a brand new stamp set by Mudra Craft Stamps called the Cross-stitch Rose. 

I had mentioned the concept of a cross-stitch style stamp set to Varshitha some time back and I love the design that she came up with. Unlike a lot of other, similar sets the Cross-stitch Rose stamps are super easy to line up. I would advise you to practise a little on some scrap paper before actually stamping on the card base. Using a stamp positioner is also helpful. 

For the large bloom, it is easiest if you stamp the darkest layer first. I just found it easier to line up the layers from the darkest to the lightest. The leaves are very easy to stamp. I die-cut a bunch of white panels with a stitching die and used a mix of Altenew mini ink cubes for the stamping. The sentiment is from the Perennial Beauty stamp set by Altenew. I stamped it with dark grey ink. To finish I added some sequins from my stash.

Here are the individual cards.
