Background stamp class

Last Tuesday I hosted a crafting session at my house where the focus was on background stamps. 

I designed four cards using different background stamps. 

1. HARDWOOD

This is a perfect design for any woodgrain stamps and I love this Hardwood stamp from Stampin Up. I masked part of the background and then added another colour cardstock for the raised panel.  I then used the Awesomely Artistic set to embellish and then an old sentiment stamp.

2. POSTSCRIPT

An old but still very good technique of triple time stamping. This time using the Postscript stamp and a mix of colour inks. 

I used a mix of Sweet sugarplum, Berry Burst and Fresh Fig to ink up the stamp and then Fresh Fig for the mounting card. I then added the die cut swirl and stitched framelit before adding the Watercolour wings butterfly using the same colours. 

The sentiment was embossed just to make it pop! 

3. BURLAP

This time I grabbed the gelli plate and Distress oxides to add the fun background for this card. 

Using one colour of the oxide for the first print with some water and then added the burlap to it for the second layer created a nice rustic but imperfect print. 

I then added stamping for the glasses and then created the tag using the new Half Full stamp set from the autumn winter SU catalogue.

4. HANDCRAFTED

This is a retired stamp but I love it, especially for stamping with Brushos. I created a palette on my craft mat and then stamped into it and then straight onto the card blank. I love the mix of the colours and the watery stamped effect.

I then mopped up the remaining colour and die cut that using the Swirly Scribbles thinlits.  I also stamped and die cut the Beautiful You inage with the stitched framelits and added colour with some brusho. I edged panel and the sentiment with some purple from a blending tool.

So four different background stamps each used differently to create some fun cards.

Happy crafting!
