Hello and thanks for stopping by today! This week the Stamp Ink Paper design team are stamping With a fun theme. A theme challenge makes it easy to adapt any stamp set to fit the need. Floral stamps are fun to color and also a great opportunity to help teach the concept of building a simple rustic bouquet. The die cuts are simple but adding some color is will help them come to life.

Beautiful Bouquet stamp set
The ideas and projects I’m seeing around using this wonderful stamp set are just as great as when it first appeared in the 2017 Annual Catalog. While the stamps are very nice, the framelits dies are phenomenal! Bouquet Bunch Framelits are chock full of really cool shapes that allow them to be colored and featured along side stamped or not stamped projects. Today’s project is made of plain white cardstock that has been partially colored with Stampin Blends alcohol markers. There is a certain look to the paper when the paper is colored after die cut, that is really appealing.
Creating Dimension in Clustered Die Cuts
Adding markers to paper that has already been die cut is a great opportunity to blend colors together and give a natural look of dimension. I used six floral die cuts for this white cluster and colored two of them with strong hints of green and yellow, two florals with subtle hints of color flecks and then two plain white florals to set up the mail color tone and convey that it is in fact a cluster of white flowers.
The stem is created in much the same way. I made it from the large stem die cut and simple snipped off a portion for feature in my project. I can use the rest of the die cut on a later project. I added dark and light marker color to give it a natural look.
