I came up with 3 projects to showcase this gorgeous stamp set.
It was not hard to do 3 versions with this large versatile stamp set.

I am absolutely delighted to share my projects with you today. Beautiful Blossoms Stamp Set is one of the fan-favorites from the January release. I love timeless floral images like this set as it can be used in modern or classy/vintage style.

My first card is a fairly simple one to create. I stamped the image with Tide Blue. You can leave it as is since the image really speaks for itself.


 To add the Wow factor, I decided to apply the "Spotlighting Technique". I took out the small heart die from Halftone Hearts Nesting Die and die cut part of the stamped image.


 After colorig the heart image with Artist Markers,I applied Embossing Ink all over and embossed it with Crystal Clear Embossing Powder. To make the image more prominent, I added 3 heart dies underneath.
The sentiment from Magnolia Heart Stamp was white-embossed onto Jet Black Card Stock.
Love that set!

My next card was inspired by the ornate gold art pieces and architecture of the Hermitage Museum that I visited a few years ago.


To create this "art-like" card, all you need are Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder and Watercolor Brush Markers. I love the white-embossed sentiment from Wonderland since it makes such a great color contrast with the rich background.


With the raised embossed edges, you can color each tiny area with ease. You can definitely color the images loosely, or in a more controlled manners like I did here.

My last take with "Beautiful Blossom" is a colorful one. It is especially handy if you have the Mini Ink Cubes. With the help of MISTI, I was able to stamp each section with various colors.


Once I stamped the images, I colored each bloom with Artist Markers. I then added stripe of Golden Edge Washi Tape.


I added a tint of blue and embellished it with Cool Summer Night Enamel Dots. 


This truly is a easy and fun card to make. Of course, you can also use Permanent Black Ink to stamp and color instead.

I truly hope that you are inspired by my interpretation with Beautiful Blossoms and I will love to see what you come up with.
