Hello, friends! This is Maryám and today I’m going to be focusing on and sharing some ideas on how to use the gorgeous All Things Orange Stamp Set. This 6 x 8 stamp set features whimsical line art, including mountains, butterflies, flowers, etc., round silhouette, plus 10 inspiring sentiments. In addition, there is also a coordinating die available which works perfectly with the stamp set.
First Project “At Grandpa's” – Scrapbook Layout
Since I first saw the All Things Orange Stamp Set, I knew that I wanted to do a project featuring oranges so I grabbed my A2-sized Watercolor Paper Set and started creating my 8 1/2″ x 11″ layout.
I took the Embossing Ink and stamped the leaf image on my watercolor paper. Next, I grabbed the Antique Gold Embossing Powder and sprinkled it on to the paper and used my heat tool to melt the powder.
Next, I created a quick mask from a post-it note to cover the leaves and stamped the round silhouette using Butternut Oval Ink.
To color the image, I used my Watercolor Brush Markers and its refills. For the round silhouette part, I used Autumn Blaze, Fresh Lemon, and Paper Bag. And for the leaves, I used Lime and Moss. I started adding color in the border and then blending it to the center with the help of my brush. Later, I added darker colors to give more depth and dimension.
To add fun to the page, I adhered a strip of Golden Strokes Washi Tape on the left side. I also stamped butterflies, colored them with my Watercolor Brush Markers and added some glossy accents to get an epoxy look. In addition, I fussy cut some flowers from the 6 x 6 Reflection Paper Pad and added tucked them under the oranges.

Second Project “Floral Scene” – Card
For my second project, I wanted to do something different so I created an A2-sized top-folding card. This time, instead of creating oranges, I heat embossed the floral sprig image from the stamp set onto watercolor paper and used my Watercolor 36 Pan Set to color it.
I also added some Sea Glass Ink on a portion of the card towards the left side with my ink blending tool. Once I finished that part, I felt like the card needed something else, so I did the same as my layout and added a stripe of Golden Strokes Washi Tape.
For the sentiment, I used this beautiful and inspiring quote from the same stamp set- “Taking pains to remove the pains of others is the true essence of generosity -Abu Bakr As-Siddiqui”.
In the end, I stamped some butterflies using my favorite black ink, the Obsidian Pigment Ink, and as usual, finished by adding sequins and enamel dots.
Third Project “Sunshine” – Card
Last but not least, I have another A2-sized card. This time, I created a minimalistic landscape scene featuring the gorgeous mountains and clouds form the set.
To stamp the mountains I used, Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf Inks. For the clouds, I used Misty Morning from the beautiful Tranquility Oval Ink Set. And for the sun, I used Butternut Ink.
Since I didn't want to have a white sky, I grabbed my Sea Glass Ink and, with the help of an ink blending tool, added color to the background.
Lastly, for the sentiment, I choose to use “Your love is like sunshine to my heart”. I also added some sequins and enamel dots as a final touch.
