I have a happy and bright card to share. If you are not in the mood to color, can it be possible to add colors without coloring? I am using the following stamp set as my example.
This time, I avoided coloring and added tons of colors and details onto the background. I am an impatient stamper and this is what I do. I'd rather stamp than coloring most of the time.
You can ink-blend a colored background like this. I used it with Gel Plate.
I find the ease of "printing the colors" onto the surface. The key is to plan out the focal point and masked area.
I swipe and inked up the Distress Oxide onto the Gel Plate. From Top to down: Mustard Seed, Kitsch Flamingo, Salvaged Patina.
You may think I used more colors, but I really used three colors. the color blending created these extra mixed colors! This is why I love Distress Oxide.

I have created 3 projects (one extra from the release blog hop) to show you how you can maximize the use of this set. With each card, I will share 7 fun and cool things to try and elevate your designs. You can also apply these ideas with your favorite Altenew supplies.
~All products used are listed at the end of this post with Inlinkz~
From the first glance, you might think this set is only suitable for travel and outdoor themes. With the following examples, I hope that we can expand our horizons together.
1. Stamp a Text Background
I started out with stamping the text "Life is an Adventure" with Vanilla Cream Crisp Dye Ink. With the masking stencil, I stamped and stenciled the Venice night scene (Deep Blue Seas, Delectable Chocolate, Enchanted Dreams, and Citrus Burst).
I then die cut the circle with coordinating die and popped it up with Altenew Instant Dimension Foam Tape. It is so cool to see the text background in continuation within the circle, isn't it?
2. Add that Midas Touch
The gold ring around the circle can be easily done with the matching circle die and Gold Foil Paper. The gold element really elevates the overall design.
The sentiment (Sentiment Strips Stamp Set) conveys beautifully with the Venice landscape.
Here are the day and night scenes of Venice. You can create any scenic cards as your heart desires!
3. Inspired by Patterned Paper
Need some color inspiration? Look through your patterned paper in your stash. I was so inspired by the Poured Acrylic Paper Pad and used one of the papers for my backdrop.
Based on the paper's colors, I stenciled the nature scene with Teal Cove, Mountain Mist, Sea Breeze, Deep Blue Seas, and Seashore Crisp Dye Inks.
4. Add Pops of Colors
As you can see, I added a sun/moon in my designs. By adding the pops of color, the scene truly came to life. You can die cut a tiny circle and stencil around the sun/moon. You can also add bright colors to the sky, too!
5. Use Die/Stencil as the Guide
The great thing about this set is that you can use the die and stencil as your guide without a stamp positioner. The negative stencil will help you aligned the stamp/stencil position. Therefore, do not overlook your shape dies as they are so useful.
6. Change up the Sentiment
This travel stamp set can be used in other themes such as anniversary, encouragement, thinking of you, birthdays, and all occasion cards. If you look beyond the sentiment in this set, you know you can create many more kinds of projects! This birthday card's sentiment is from Sentiment Strips Stamp Set.
Thanks to the stencils, I was able to create the scene in one layer. To add that extra texture, I dry-embossed the patterned paper (Enjoy The Ride Paper Pad) with the Buffalo Plaid 3D Embossing Folder.
7. Use PART of the 3D Embossing Folder
I inked up the surface with darker green and that makes the card stand out even more. You can create accent pieces easily by using only part of the Embossing Folder. A little bit goes a long way!
I hope this post is helpful and interesting. I sure had a blast creating with this set - I was so immersed in the stunning images as they took me back to my trip to Venice and Lake Louise!

I hope that you are doing well. Today's card was brought to you by one die and one set of pattern paper. Rainbow-themed cards are all the rage these days. I love rainbow, but I love mixing up colors and order sometimes. However, I thought it would be fun to use pattern paper instead.
The die is seemingly simple, yet it can be used in many creative ways.
I am using Rainbow Blots Pattern Paper (6"x6")
The die-cutting part was so easy that I decided to use two sets of rainbow.
Basically, I created a pattern with the double rainbow. To keep the sentiment front and centered, I popped it up with Foam Tape.
I also added a small piece of Washi Tape. It's not complete without some added gold!

I hope this post finds you well.
This time, I made it with the leaf die (also part of the Color Block Set-linked below).
I changed up the sentiment on this next one.
Here are my final three cards with the same die.

I stamped the sentiment (from Clear Stamp of the Month) and positioned it right in the middle.
