Welcome to day two of our January release. If you are just joining us, please visit day 1 here.
I am super excited to introduce to you our newest floral stamp set called Cherry Blossoms! This set is super fun to color with pencils, distress markers or watercoloring. I am going to do a tutorial soon in our newsletter classroom on coloring with pencils with this great new set. So stay soon.
Let’s take a closer look at the new stamp set.
This set is a 4×4 size set with one extra large floral bouquet and 5 coordinating stamp sets. As always there is a coordinating cut file to our Cherry Blossoms. You can find it here. When drawing this set, I took a lot of the details out of the petals to open up your creativity and add the details yourself. My designers did such a beautiful job showing different examples. Leah even shares how to create a beautiful floral background with this set.
Here are a few cards that I created with this set. I’ve also shone some examples on our Instagram page that will not be shown here today.
The thing I love the must about this set is the big bold sentiments that come with it. They can be the highlight of the card without any images needed. All four sentiments are bold and beautiful and will stand out perfectly alone as shown in above.
After stamping my image using dark chocolate ink, I then cut it out using our Fancy Labels 3 Die and also a coordinating scallped circle die. My background paper is just scraps in my stash from our Vintage Floral Paper Pad and also IBS Flowers.
I tied the bow at the top corner and then left the ribbon long so that I could attach it to each corner. I love the extra Spring color and think it complements with the pinks.
Last month, I took the dive and purchased some Faber Castell Polychromos pencils. They are amazing and I am so excited to share with you how to use them with this new stamp set in a tutorial.
Here’s a closer view of the new flowers and the polychromos pencils.
I wanted the floral image to take centerstage so I added a little banner at the top using our Vintage Floral Paper Pad, Pinks Ribbon Collection & our Creative Tags stamp set.
I hope you’ve enjoyed today’s inspirational cards and are as excited as I am with this new floral set.
