I love irises and have fond memories of my mom giving them a special place in her garden growing up! This stamp set would be perfect for scrapping that (especially since I’m not sure I have any pictures of that area of our yard since I was 10 when we moved out of that house – I could use the stamped images to help tell the story!) Thanks so much for bringing back those happy memories!

Paula Newsom March 22, 2020 - 11:46 am

Your Iris stamp is so pretty . Altenew has such beautiful stamps. I really loved watching the watercoloring
