Hello everyone! Every time I start my projects for my posts I feel confused because I want to use all of my Altenew supplies. This time I allowed myself to use something old ( Doodle Blooms Stamp & Die Bundle), something new (Stencils) and
something blue the New Day Card Kit. And came up with three ways to use Doodle Blooms Stamp Set.
The first card was started with Splatter Stencil and silver glitter paste for the background.
For the sentiment and accents I used die cuts and enamel dots from the same card kit.
I repeated the tip with two more colors of patterned paper for the next cards. And one more trick for you: if you use stamping tool and all your images are stamped right in the same place you can use your dies position (adhered with washi tape) multiply times.
Look at this enamel dots – I just adore matte ones!!!
To complement the bold sentiment I placed the panel on a Jet Black Cardstock.
The same cardstock I used for my third card and added only splashes of Warm Sunshine Metallic Shimmer Ink Spray.
This time I placed my yellow floral composition in the center.
Above mentioned tips and tricks allowed me to make three cards in a short time. What are your secrets of quick cards?
Hope you enjoyed my post today on three ways to use Doodle Blooms Stamp Set! Have a great week!

Actually, the reason I made so many cards is because I wanted to show you different colouring techniques on one image. In addition to this, I will also be covering different embossing powders and showing you how they give the same image such variation. Therefore I kept my layout almost same for all my cards so there is little distraction and the image has all your attention.
Also, every image I coloured/stamped , it was die cut using the coordinating die. All sentiments used are from the same stamp set.
My cards today will show you the Build-A-Flower: Magnolia Stamp Set in eight different looks. However, since there are a lot of photos to go through, I will keep the description short.
First up, no-line pencil colouring.
I made a light colour wash panel for some of my cards. Here I used Prismacolors to colour my image. I stamped the image using Antique Linen distress ink.
Next, some no-line water colouring.
I have used distress stains to watercolour this image. Even though I didn’t need to add the details on this image to make it look different but I wanted to show you that you can add some specks or lines/strokes to change the look of the petals.
Next, I have used Artist markers to colour my image.
I have used Artist markers in Frosty Pink, Coral Berry and Ruby Red for my flowers. The stem/branch was coloured using Frayed Leaves, Forest Glades and Evergreen.
Next up, stamping layering stamps.
Here I stamped the layering stamps except for the outline stamp using Peach Perfect, Cotton Candy and Rouge Crisp Inks on Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock . I then went in with my colour pencils to add a few details. My front panel is cut from Spicy Yogurt cardstock.
From here on my cards feature different Alenew Crisp Embossing Powders.
Here instead of a colour wash background I inked the panel using Ocean Waves Crisp Ink. The flower is watercoloured using distress stains.
Next, with Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder.
For my front panel I have used Powder Woodgrain Cardstock. Here I have done some two tone watercolouring.
Next with Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder.
I have used Woodgrain sheet in white for my front panel.
Lastly, with Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.
I have used Spicy Yogurt cardstock for my front panel. Watercoloured the image using distress stains.
Finally, we are done! I hope one of these techniques is your cup of tea. I’d love to see what you do with your Build-A-Flower: Magnolia Stamp Set. Don’t forget to tag Altenew or me when you share.
Also, here are all the cards together.
We have reached the end of the post, thanks a ton for sticking around. And to thank you, I will be picking out a name from the comments to send one of these cards out! A name will be picked from the comments left till July 3rd. I will announce the winner on July 4th here on the Altenew blog in my next post.
If you have any questions, please feel free to ask in the comments.
Love and hugs,
Initially I wanted to make a one layer card but later on I decided to do something a tad different. I did a lot of masking and stamped my flowers and leaves with Antique Linen distress ink. Since I already decided that I wont go the one layer way, I stamped more leaves separately.
Next, I started colouring light to dark for this particular card. I coloured the images with Prismacolors. It took a lot of time due to the small size of petals but because it was looking so good I continued colouring.
Also, here is the list of colours for the flowers starting from the lightest PC1011, PC916, PC917, PC1003, PC1002, PC1034 and PC945. I can’t list the greens since I used too many shades to make my “flicks”.
Finally I fussy cut my main image, which was a cluster of flowers and leaves along with the leaves that I stamped separately. If you are wondering why I stamped these leaves separately is because I plan to add them on a different level to the main image. As a result, my whole bouquet will give an illusion of way more dimension than there actually is.
Also note that I only stamped two leaves separately and a bunch of three as one piece. This makes just three additional pieces that I added to a bigger cluster and it made all the difference.
I placed my main image on the panel using foam tape and the other three pieces were added by glue.
You can find the enamel dots in the store HERE.
If you haven’t figured out yet where I placed the three extra pieces (leaves) that I coloured, two are on the top right. I added the bunch of three at the bottom left.
This is all for today. I hope you liked my card and the technique to add more dimension just by adding a couple extra pieces. Isn’t the Dahlia Blossoms Stamp Set just beautiful?
