Stamp Focus: Beautiful Blossoms Stamp Set

by Virginia Lu

Hello, Altenew friends! This is Virginia here. I am absolutely delighted to share my projects with you today. Beautiful Blossoms Stamp Set is one of the fan favorites from the January release. The timeless floral images are so on trend and can be used in modern or classy/vintage style. I absolutely love the deeply etched details and composition of this stamp set.Altenew-BeautifulBlossomsStampSet

The Beautiful Blossoms Stamp Set covers the entire card and can be stamped easily for mass production. However, it is more than just a background stamp.

Let's get started, shall we? Altenew-BeauifulBlossoms-Virginia#5

My first card is a fairly simple one to create. I stamped the image with Tide Blue. You can leave it as is since the image really speaks for itself.Altenew-BeautifulBlossoms-Virginia#1

To add the “wow” factor, I decided to apply the “Spotlighting Technique”. I took out the small heart die from Halftone Hearts Nesting Die Set and die cut part of the stamped image.Altenew-BeautifulBlossoms-Virginia#4

After coloring the heart image with Artist Markers, I applied Embossing Ink all over and embossed it with Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. To make the image more prominent, I added 3 heart dies underneath.Altenew-BeautifulBlossoms-Virginia#2

The sentiment from Magnolia Heart Stamp Set was white-embossed onto Jet Black Cardstock. Love that set!Altenew-BeautifulBlossoms-Virginia#3

My next card was inspired by the ornate gold art pieces and architecture of the Hermitage Museum that I visited a few years ago.Altenew-BeauifulBlossoms-Virginia#7

To create this “art-like” card, all you need are Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder and Watercolor Brush Markers. I love the white-embossed sentiment from Wonderland since it makes such a great color contrast with the rich background.Altenew-BeauifulBlossoms-Virginia#8

With the raised embossed edges, you can color each tiny area with ease. You can definitely color the images loosely, or in a more controlled manner, like I did here.Altenew-BeauifulBlossoms-Virginia#9

My last take with Beautiful Blossoms is a colorful one. It is especially handy if you have the Mini Ink Cubes. With the help of MISTI, I was able to stamp each section with various colors.Altenew-BeauifulBlossoms-Virginia#11

Once I stamped the images, I colored each bloom with Artist Markers. I then added a strip of Golden Edge Washi Tape. Using embellishments like washi tape and enamel dots enhance the overall design.

I added a tint of blue and embellished it with Cool Summer Night Enamel Dots.

This truly is an easy and fun card to make. Of course, you can also use Permanent Black Ink to stamp and color instead.Altenew-BeauifulBlossoms-Virginia#6

I truly hope that you are inspired by my interpretation with the Beautiful Blossoms Stamp Set and I would love to see what you come up with! Thanks so much for stopping by!
