VIDEO: Creating Backgrounds with Small Stamps

Hello everyone! I've got a fun duo of cards to share with you today featuring the newly released Biggest Fan stamp set. I was definitely in the mood for some bright vivid colors and these guys fit the bill perfectly.

Technically I would classify the Biggest Fan stamp set as a sentiment set. But, there are a bunch of great little accent images included in this set as well. So I thought I would share how I created this fun background using those images along with our PURE COLOR dye inks.

And, there's a video! Just click below if you want to see me pull these together, or head over to YouTube to watch it in HD.

I also did some fun gradient stamping for the sentiment on these. The large solid font in this sentiment is perfect for this technique, and our Sweet Gelato and Wild Mango make a wonderful combo.

And as I mentioned...my indecisiveness struck yet again, so I ended up with two cards.

This card has already made its way in the mail to it's recipient, and I really hope she loves it! You can't tell in the photo, but there is a wonderful shimmer to this one thanks to a little Wink Of Stella Glitter Brush Pen. ;o)

As always, thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope your week is off to a great start!

  2. Great cards and video, Dawn. I always struggle with how to balance colors and images when creating my own backgrounds. You've helped by sharing your tips. Think I prefer the card with the black card base.

  13. Both cards are fabulous but definitely the vellum. I think the vellum adds a little more of an artistic touch which would be perfect for a special friend!
