Hello friends! This is Virginia here.  Do you love floral sets like I do? This post will inspire you to look at your floral with fresh eyes.  I am using Sketched Florals to create 3 totally different looks. These watercolor flowers are loosely painted and look so artistic. Whether you are a beginner or pro in stamping, you will find so many fun ways creating with this set. Let's dive right in!

Creating Wonders with Sketched Florals

07212023-Sketched Florals Stamp & Die-Dainty Flowers Stamp Set -002I love arranging floral die cut pieces into a wreath. The Sketched Florals Dies are perfect for this.

You can use any Altenew Dye ink for all of your projects and mix and match them. Using the Stampwheel will definitely make mixing the colors easy and striking.

07212023-Sketched Florals Stamp & Die-Dainty Flowers Stamp Set -003When arranging a wreath, I like to start with the smaller pieces and then add the large flowers as the focal point.  The Instant Dimension Foam Tape is a must for adding extra dimensions. I love the flexibility of cutting each foam piece to fit.

07212023-Sketched Florals Stamp & Die-Dainty Flowers Stamp Set -004Don't forget to add your own personal flair to the handmade cards. I stamped TWO sentiments and a small heart ( from Dainty Flower Stamp) for this project. Why not, right?

2. Simple Floral Arrangement With a Die

3. Elevate the Floral design with Textures and Gradient Effect
