When I first saw this stamp set, with its bold, simple and graphic designs, I knew it would make a great companion set to the Bold Bunch stamp set and, in fact, I’ve combined the two sets on one of the first two cards I’m sharing with you!
The first two cards I have to share show two different ways of using the stamp set for single layer stamping.
Being a lover of all things Rifle Paper Company, I took some inspiration from their classic floral prints and stamped and cut several masks in order to build a more complex, multi-layered stamped design.
For the leaves, I used a combination of Iceberg and Ultramarine inks, and Almond Butter with Ultramarine for the smaller leaves. The blooms are a variety of pink combos: Pink Pearl/Coral Bliss, Frosty Pink/Cotton Candy, and Pink Diamond/Pinkalicious. To fill in some empty areas, I used the leaf lines stamps with Almond Butter ink. It took a lot of steps to accomplish this look, but it’s a technique that works well if you want to make many cards of the same design and different colors.
I used one of the sentiments from the Bright Blossoms stamp set to stamp on black cardstock and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I added a few enamel dots to support the black cardstock, and I felt that sufficed to let the stamp layering really shine!
I kept the color scheme simpler on this card as well, using the Frosty Pink/Cotton Candy combo for the blooms and Frayed Leaf/Forest Glades for the leaves. Next, I stamped the sentiment from the Bright Blossoms stamp set with Obsidian Pigment Ink for a gorgeous intense, crisp impression.
Finally, I have a couple of matching cards that use both the Bright Blossoms stamp set and matching dies.
On both cards, I popped up the stamped a die-cut square with foam tape and adhered a loopy string of black cotton behind it to peek out on a couple of corners. Then I adhered an arrangement of die-cut leaves and blooms on the squares. The sentiments are from the Bright Blossoms stamp set and are stamped with the Obsidian Pigment Ink.
I love this stamp set for its versatility, from the simple technique to the complex, the result is sublime!
Thanks for stopping by today. If you have any questions or thoughts be sure to leave them in the comments below. Have a wonderful day!
