Hello, Altenew fans. Rubeena here with a Stamp Focus post on the newly released Playful Blooms Stamp Set with the coordinating dies. I also used some paper from the Celebrations Paper Set from the Celebrate You Kit.

For my first card, I stamped the larger bloom on white cardstock using a dark grey ink pad. I stamped the stem in Frayed Leaf. I colored both stamped images with alcohol ink markers. The stem is a solid image, which is why I stamped it in a very light color so I can color over it with markers. I added some white gel pen details to the petals.

For the background, I trimmed down a sheet of paper from the Celebrations Paper Set to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and then die-cut it with the Dotted Scales Debossing Cover Die, which is basically my favorite cover die ever! I glued it to my folded card base and then mounted the bloom and stem over it with foam tape.

For the sentiment, I stamped “you are my favorite” from the Playful Blooms Stamp Set on Kraft cardstock and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I trimmed it down to a rectangle and mounted it right against the bloom.

For the next card, I used a darker color palette and different medium: watercolor brush markers. First, I die-cut the large die from watercolor paper before stamping the images on it. I used Jet Black and Frayed Leaf for the stamping. I watercolored the images with brush markers.

For the base, I used the Cross Stitch Canvas Die and die-cut it from Kraft cardstock. I adhered it to my folded card base. Then I heat-embossed sentiments from Playful Blooms and mounted them, along with the flowers, over the base.

Finally, for the bookmarks, I trimmed down three sheets from the Celebrations Paper Set to 2″ x 6″ so they would fit inside the vinyl holders I had.

Next, I stamped three smaller blooms and coordinating stems onto white cardstock and then colored them using alcohol ink markers. I adhered them to the trimmed patterned papers with liquid adhesive so they would be flat.

I added some details with a white and black pen just to give it different looks. The sentiments are from Playful Blooms, Dainty Swiss Dots Stamp Set, and Needlework Motif.

Finally, I added some twine to the bookmark holders. I hope you were inspired to use these sets in new ways. Thanks so much for visiting today!
