Stamp Focus: Adore You

by Aga

Hello, everyone! It’s Aga here and today I'd like to share with you a few simple one layer cards I made using the beautiful Adore You Stamp Set. This set contains 24 stamps (hand-drawn floral images and elegant sentiments) that can be used to build gorgeous floral designs. You can colour them with various colouring mediums and techniques, a few examples of which you can see below.

For my first card, I decided to go for a clean, simple and monochromatic look. I have used a masking technique and stamped the images with black ink to create a wreath.

Then I used Copic markers to colour some elements in and some I left uncoloured. To finish my card I stamped the sentiment with black ink in the centre of the wreath.

For my second card, I also used masking technique. I stamped the images in black to create a floral cluster in the centre of my card.

Next, I used a sponge dauber and the Altenew inks to add colour to the images. I blended here Puffy Heart, Warm Sunshine and Forest Glades Crisp Inks and again left some parts uncoloured for an additional softness.

For my last card I created a floral background. I stamped all the images and my sentiment with black ink. Then I used backside of my stamps to colour my background. I placed the stamps backward onto my acrylic block, applied ink and stamped the solid images over.

I love this technique as it’s a great way to stretch the versatility of any stamp set!

I hope you enjoyed these examples and you feel inspired to ink up this beautiful set! I can't wait to see what you create with it!

Before I go, I have great news to share with you all. Altenew will be releasing the Hibiscus Bouquet & Floral Ink Bundle on Friday, November 25th. This is a special bundle with a yet-to-be-released stamp set – this stamp set won't be available on its own till January, 27th, 2017.

Combining classical elegance with modern bold statement, this set will give you a beautiful assortment of hibiscus flowers in a loosely painted style. You may layer up the images to achieve a bold contrast, or use your favorite coloring medium for a soft and subtle look. No matter what your style is, we are sure you will have lots of fun using this stamp set!

Here's a sneak peek of this beautiful set:

Wow, you sure did a lot with one stamp set and you used my favorite color, yellow in your cards. People today don’t use enough yellow. That’s just my opinion and I’m sticking with it! LOL I give you and extra 10 points for using yellow. Flowers are so pretty. If I could, I’d stamp a whole bunch of flowers and put them in my garden somehow. They wouldn’t die so I could use them every year and those ninja squirrels in my yard wouldn’t eat them and ruin them. Now if I could just figure out a way to do that, I would be a happy camper! LOL
