Colourful blueprints by Rachel

Hello there. Rachel here today to share my inspiration using the blueprint stamps shown in the January shows. They really are fabulous stamps and I am so glad they were so well received.

This first card used stamps mainly from the Freesia Blueprint stamp set. I teamed the images up with inks and stencilled circles and turned them into a butterfly.

More colour in this sample - I used images from the wild cornflower blueprint and the vegetation came from the sweetpeas set. 

A very simple card here using a brusho background and the image from the sweetpea set. Colouring was using water colour pencils.

This was created using dies. Once cut I used paint to colour the card then stamped onto the paint images from the Sweetpea Blueprint set. Finally, after assembling the caddy I added fussy cut images from the SweetPea set. 

I hope I have given you some ideas of ways to use some of your stamps if you have already bought them, or encouragement to get them if you haven't yet!
See you later in the month!

  1. Beautiful cards and box Rachel love the sweet peas stamp

  2. Lovely works and particularly love the caddy!

  3. Three beautiful cards and love the use of the blueprints on the first two, and some clever stamping to make the butterfly, and then the circles forming an interesting pattern on the second. The third is beautifully coloured using the sweetpea, and then the box again with more gorgeous sweetpeas. Thank you for the inspiration Rachel. x

  4. I love the stencilling in the background of your first card and the splats of purple ink on the third. I like how you've added these extra little details and they work so well x


Thanks so much for leaving a comment - it brings a little ray of sunshine into our day when we know our work is appreciated!
