Svitlana is here. Today, I brought you several cards made using the new Bloom & Bud Stamp Set. Another amazing realistic floral set made by Altenew.
I made three cards using this wonderful set.
For my first card, I took a dramatic approach.
I made a card base out of a Jet Black Cardstock and die-cut a panel out of the same cardstock using the Watercolor Stripes Cover Die. After that, I foam mounted the panel onto the card base using black adhesive foam squares.
Next, I stamped the flower and bud. For the flowers, I used Coral Bliss, Heart Beat, Vineyard Berry, and Jet Black Dye Inks. For the leaves, Mountain Pine, Shadow Creek, and Jet Black Dye Inks were used. After stamping, all elements were die-cut using the matching dies.
I adhered the flowers onto the card and adhered a sentiment below, which was stamped in black onto a white cardstock strip using a stamp from the Beautiful Lady Stamp Set.
Lastly, I added several white crystals.
MONOCHROMATIC CARD WITH SCORED BACKGROUND
The stamp set is mainly meant to be used as a layering set. Which is more than enough as you’re getting an incredible and realistic result. But it also can be used for non-layered stamping.
I started making my card by making a panel out of a Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock. Then I stamped a floral background using the second from the bottom layer for both bloom and bud and the bottom layer for leaves. I stamped all elements using the Starlight Dye Ink.
Next, I scored the panel using my scoring board. I added scoring lines in a diagonal direction and I didn’t follow any particular pattern for the lines. Just made several in one direction and several in another, perpendicular direction.
Next, I blended the Turquoise Dye Ink onto the panel, adding ink more intensively on the panel’s edges with almost no ink in the middle. After that, I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base.
I made a sentiment by die cutting letters X and O out of white cardstock and gold glitter paper using the Caps Bold Alphabet Die Set and adhered together with a slight offset.
The card was finished off by adding several gold crystals.
PINK ON KRAFT
The last card for today features two elements which will always win – a pink and kraft color combo and splatters. You can never go wrong with this color combo and splatters you know… they’re like a Bluetooth – they make everything better! :)
I started making the card by stamping the floral design onto a Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock panel. To stamp the flowers, I used Frosty Pink, Cotton Candy, Coral Berry, and Ruby Red Dye Inks. For the leaves, I used Mountain Pine, Shadow Creek, and Grass Field Dye Inks. To mask off the overlapping elements, I used the matching mask stencil.
Next, I blended the Mocha Dye Ink onto the panel. I was using mask stencils to mask off the stamped elements and for ink blending, I was using a blending brush. But any blending tool can be used for that; whatever works better for you.
Then, I added a lot of splatters of the Pure White Ink Spray. I was covering the elements with the stencil masks when I was adding splatters, for the most part.
Using a die from the Script Words Die Set, I made two die-cuts for the sentiment out of white and brown cardstock. These die-cuts were adhered together with a slight shift, one on top of another and then adhered onto the panel.
I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base and added several white crystals to accentuate the card.
