Altenew Stamp Focus: Bright Blossoms Cards

Hello, hey! I’m up on the Altenew blog today showcasing the recently released Bright Blossoms stamp and die set!

For the first two cards I’m sharing, I used all of the stamps and all of the dies! (Anything worth doing is worth over-doing I always say!)

If you love the layered stamped images look, you’ll love these ones as this style are among the easiest to layer and the Altenew ink color families are so perfect! Once they were all stamped I die cut each individual piece to arrange in varying combinations.

I used the Dainty Swiss Dots stamp set, along with Silver Stone ink to stamp all over a card panel, and then cut out the squares with the Halftone Squares dies, before popping them up with foam tape and adhering over top a swirl of cotton embroidery thread. Then I arranged the floral die cut bits and pieces and adhered them to the die cut squares. The stamped sentiments are from the Bright Blossoms stamp set and are stamped with Obsidian Black Pigment ink.

Up next, are more cards that show a couple of different ways to use the Bright Blossoms stamp set.

For the card with the all-over stamped design, I wanted to channel my inner Rifle Paper Co’s classic floral patterns.

I cut several masks of the flowers so that I could stamp the flowers first and then “tuck” the blue leaves underneath the blooms. The ink colors I used on today’s projects are all listed in the blog post over at the Altenew Card Blog.

I chose another of the sentiments from the Bright Blossoms stamp set to stamp onto black card stock and heat emboss with white embossing powder. That sentiment strip and some supporting black enamel dots complete the card and allow the focus to remain on the beautiful floral pattern.

But, while that all-over masked design is a lot of fun to attempt, it is also time consuming! So, for the Need A Card In A Hurry crowd, I’m sharing a design that creates a visual floral bouquet but can be stamped up in a quick, yet creative way and where none of the stamped images touch. I also incorporated a few more stamps from the Bold Bunch stamp set as they are quite complementary to the Bright Blossoms stamp set in size and design.

Each of the stamps for this design can almost entirely all be laid down together, for minimal stamping except for the duplicates of a few leaves that must be stamped individually and the second layer of stamps with the first layer. Once again, YAYYY MISTI!

The sentiment is pieced together with stamps from the Bright Blossoms stamp set and is stamped with the Obsidian Black Pigment ink. I stamped it first, then added the florals and leaves around it, with no overlapping images. As you can see, it’s a very simple design that looks great in it’s minimalism.
