Did you know there are 3 ‘O’s in Altenew?

Well for me, today there are. As a little pay day present to myself I bought the Altenew Painted Flowers stamps. I have wanted these for a long time, but nobody seemed to have them in stock. But this week, on the off chance, I did a search and got lucky. Delivery received, I rip open the packaging with the haste of a 5 year old child on Christmas morning, dig out the inks and well, this is what happened:

Three ‘Oh’s. Count ’em!

Sorry, I  got carried away with myself and cut the last one out before I remembered to take the photo. I’m sure you know the feeling.

I have only tried the one flower from the set, but so far, so super easy. I expect these will feature a lot in the next few projects. In the meantime I just had to rustle up one quick effort before going for a girlie lunch because it would have been rude not to.

Something cheerful, for a sunny day, or a sunny disposition.

  1. But you are so precise and neat – I would have thought they would suit you perfectly. These Painted Flowers ones are especially easy (so far, anyway!). I don’t own a MISTI either. Had never come across it until a couple of weeks ago. It may have to go on my ever-increasing wish list!


  2. This is so pretty! I have this set and to be honest I don’t think my lining up has been exactly spot-on when I’ve used it! But that’s the good thing about this style – you can get away without being perfect – but you have lined yours up perfectly Gillian!

    1. Thanks Karen. I haven’t lined it up perfectly every time, but that’s the beauty of them – it doesn’t matter if you don’t. I love that haphazard quality!
