{Spotlight Project} Add Color But Differently with Deepti!

Hello friends! Deepti here and welcome to a spotlight feature. Today again, I am playing with the newest stamp club set Bloom Doodles and for this one I decided to add color to my design a bit differently for a modern and trendy look. Looking at these beautiful images, the obvious choice is to color them but I decided to challenge myself and get creative. I was looking into some distress mini ink cubes to decide for my color scheme, when this idea hit me :) Let me show you...

Step 1
So for this one I took a white panel and used the mini ink cubes as stamp to stamp those solid colors. They don't stamp perfectly solid which is even better as it gives a grungy look. I stamped the first and then I matched the black edge of the cube with the already stamped color square to get the perfect placement.

Step 2
Next I stamped the floral images to build little clusters.

Step 3
Once I was satisfied with how the images were stamped, I usually follow the odd number in stamping, like 3 flowers, 5 leaves etc... I added the sentiment. I took the floral dies and die cut three flowers from the panel

Step 4
I also die cut these from black foam sheet and layered the floral diecuts on them. I then fixed them back on the panel for inlaid look.

For my color scheme, I follow the primary colors... blue pink and yellow. So you can pick any shade of these. They usually work great :)

Here is a look at the card one more time:


That finishes my spotlight feature :) I hope you enjoyed it and will give this a try. Happy paper crafting!


  1. I love all the fun details on this card. The raised die cut flowers finish it off beautifully. Thanks for sharing how you made it.

  2. This is a delightful card, Deepti. There's something special about the blocks of color with the simple florals. tfs

  3. Such a beautiful and creative geometric background with your cubes. Such pretty colors behind your stamped Bloom Doodles flowers. Love your inlaid little daisies with the black fun foam to pop them up and give a nice shadow effect. TFS your beautiful card and wonderful creative tips, Dee. Hugs...Nancy
