It's a shame when the impression of the image isn't deep enough into the polymer stamp, because a poor quality image results. And that's what happened with this stamp set. I hate writing this review, but to make matters worse I didn't receive any response from customer service in regards to my complaint. Black ink smudges all over the insides of the petals of those beautiful flowers cannot be erased nor the smudges between the letters on the sentiments. So now I wonder if I have to take my chances every time I buy a stamp set from Altenew whether I will get stuck with a stamp set that makes bad impressions.
As always, the stamps are high quality and make lovely impressions. I bought this set as a result of seeing a beautiful card made with the sentiment gold embossed on vellum. I haven't used the flowers yet but I have stamped them and they are just the right size and style for multiple designs.
Altenew is famous for it's flower stamps and these are beautiful! So excited to use the coordinating masking stencils with this set.
I love the beautiful watermarked images that this stamp set gives me when using Versamark. I make 5x7 cards, sometimes with circle and rectangle apertures. This set has those elongated (flatter?) images that I need to surround the apertures beautifully. Make great background papers, as well. It also has so many amazing sentiments, useful on so many types of cards. Thanks Altenew! Another floral winner!
Most beautiful and easy flowers I've ever made
