Stamped Backgrounds

Hello everyone. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Like I am sure most of you, I am looking forward to the New Year for more reasons to count this year.

Today’s topic is about stamping your backgrounds which is a great way to get more use out of your stamp sets as well as give your cards different looks. The Cat Pack have several examples to show you.

Julee randomly stamped the cup image from the Alice Bundle, then colored with distress oxide inks. She repeated the image for the main image but this time colored it with clean color real brush markers with similar colors so it was brighter than the  background.

Christine is all about flowers and she used them for the background as a focal image.

Kerry used a small image from the Year of the Pig (oos) to clear stamp and emboss for a bit of shine to this layered card.

Nancy (that’s me) randomly stamped the various numbers from the Silly Numbers Bundle, adding subtle interest to a white background.

I hope that you are encouraged to add some stamped backgrounds to your cards.

And don’t forget the inventory reduction sale going on now.
