Hello! I am not sure about where you live, but my town is blooming with flowers in various spring colors these days. Spring and early Summer is finally here! I thought it would be perfect to create something fun, simple, and adorable for this colorful season.

Altenew released a wonderful line of brand new stamps, dies, mask stencils, and papers today and one of the stamps totally grabbed my attention. I wanted to make something that is full of color that screams spring with lovely shades of colors.

 

This tutorial and project I am about to share is perfect for beginners and also great for seasoned stampers that want to whip something out quickly. Make sure to watch the video about for a close up on how I created today’s card.

This 4×6 stamp set I used is full of whimsical, cute, and small images. This type of images is so great for creating your own background and have a unique arrangement that fits your style of crafting perfectly. I decided to choose a couple of larger images and a few smaller images to get the balance of the background.

To go with these images and the Spring theme I was hoping to achieve, I decided to use pastel tone colors and chose the lightest shades from a few color families from Altenew. See my supplies list below for full-color ranges I’ve chosen.

I went with soft pink, soft yellow, soft blue, soft green, and a few other shades to add some depths and interest when creating the background.

I kept the sentiment super simple and sweet, just chose a greeting from another stamp set from today’s release and stamped it in black ink.

I hope you give this simple stamping technique a try to create your own background. These are so easy, quick, simple, yet bring awesome results to your projects!
