Hi! Erum here today with a few cards to share using the  Happy Bloom Stamp Set.

Before I start, how did you like yesterday’s release? Wasn’t it wonderful like all our past releases?!

To begin, I cut a panel of Pale Grey Cardstock to which I added scored lines for texture. Next, I added a few black splatters.

Second, I stamped the single flowers from the Happy Bloom Stamp Set on Classic Crest Solar White cardstock with Permanent Black Ink. I decided to use Artist Markers to color my flowers. Hence, the vibrant colors.

Blue: Arctic, Caribbean sky, and Persian blue

Yellow: Buttercream, Warm Sunshine, and Caramel Toffee

Green: Frayed leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen

After I was done coloring, I die cut the images with a coordinating die. In the end, I added some clear sequins and popped a sentiment from Label Love.

Since I already used the single stamps on the first card, for my second card I used the bouquet of flowers. Keeping in mind that I wanted to make a quick card, I heat embossed the image using Pure White Crisp Embossing Powder. This is the fastest way to watercolor for me.

I used distress inks to watercolor my image. As you can see, I fussy cut the image and popped it on my card front after I stamped “Happy Birthday”.Altenew Happy Bloom Stamp Set | Erum Tasneem | @pr0digy0 | @altenew

I wanted to keep the loose watercoloring going. For this reason, I followed the wet on wet technique to make my card front as well. Finally, I popped up a few silver sequins and confetti for the sparkle.

This is my favorite of the lot because it involves pencil coloring, which I love. I used only one black pencil from a kid’s pencil set to add shading to my image, which then I blended with a stump/tortillion.

Because the stamp is so gorgeous, it shines here even without any bright colors.

I stamped “You Make Me Smile” and kept it super CAS. I made two more cards (in color) using the same layout which I will share soon with a video! So keep an eye out on this space. :)

This, you must have already seen. I shared this yesterday on my blog and thought I’d share it here as well as it’s just another idea of how to stretch this stamp set.

Here, I have watercolored my flowers and then fussy cut them. Then, I arranged the spray along the oval die from Create-A-Wreath Die set. I have also added the word “Love” from Script Words and the Creative Edges: Lace Die to give the card a more feminine feel.
