Less is More 366

Sadly, I have had need for sympathy cards of late. The challenge at Less is More has turned out to be a chance to add to my supply of these.

I kept coming back to the gorgeous Heartfelt Blooms set from Stampin' Up. The new style of stamp creates an image almost like an old-fashioned lithograph and is perfect for a simple, monochrome card, even though it also lends itself to colouring.  It actually looks amazing in just about any colour and makes a great background stamp too. This set is a Sale-a-bration item so is only available as a free gift with a qualifying purchase of $110 and only until the end of March.

You can see the beautiful shading in the stamp in this close-up.

If you live in New Zealand and would like to know how to get this fabulous set, then please message me via my Facebook page, linked in the sidebar, or leave a comment below.
