Stamp Highlight: Painted Flowers

by Nicole Picadura

Hello there, crafty friends! Welcome to another Stamp Highlight – this time we are focusing on the Painted Flowers stamp set. This one is an oldie but a definite goodie, and one of the most popular stamp sets our crafters like to shop for. So let's get right to it, shall we?

Painted Flowers Stamp Set

Painted Flowers stamp set is a personal favorite of mine (even though each stamp set we carry are all my favorites!) because of it's lovely solid images and the hand-drawn, detailed outline images. It is actually a great set for a beginner stamper as well!

You can pair them up with beautiful shades of the Altenew's Crisp Dye Inks to create layered impressions, or simply stamp the outline images to color with different mediums, like watercolors and markers. Did you know there is also a matching die set? It is very fun to pop out these lovely flowers on any projects.

If you are a new to stamp layering, you will find the Painted Flowers layering guide helpful. Click here to download it for your personal use.


As you can see above, the possibility of this stamp set is endless! Make sure to search for Painted Flowers on our blog so you can see all of the projects using the stamp set and the die set in various styles. We are also sharing couple of our favorites below:

You are probably already familiar with Marika's amazing coloring skills. For this card, she created a beautifully colored flowers using the stamp set. She also has a video tutorial so you can watch and learn how to color them like she did! Find out more about this card here.


Create beautiful wedding stationaries with the stamp set! Yana is amazing at putting together different elements to make any projects pop. Aren't these cards (or invitations in this case) so pretty? She is sharing more close up photos on these projects with some detailed tips, so you can head over here to learn more about it.


How about some wonderful background with different shades of blue? Yoonsun created this amazing card using the stamp set and as you can see it is very stunning! She also shared another version of this on her post which you can check out the details here. These would be very easy and fun to create!

We hope you are feeling inspired to take out your own Painted Flowers stamp set and the die set today! We cannot wait to see what you create. Don't forget to share with us on Instagram by adding #altenew.
