Stamping Your Own Backgrounds

Recently over in Stamping Family, I shared two videos – each showing 4 different ways to stamp your own backgrounds.  They were very popular and got some of our veteran stampers trying new ways – which is always really cool.

Why stamp your own background?  Because sometimes we just don't have the right patterned paper.  The color combination isn't just right, we don't have the right amount, the pattern doesn't have the right feeling for the card – the list is endless right?

When you make your own, you have creative license to do whatever you want!  You can make it be exactly what you want it to be.

This card uses what I would refer to as a random pattern using an intended background stamp.

We started with stamping the background and then it was time to dress it up.

This card uses many of my favorite items from the new Stampin' Up! catalog – a great background stamp, super cute animal stamps and coordinating punch, & new circle thinlits with coordinating scallop circle!

Starting with the sweet kitty cat, she is stamped using the Foxy Friends stamp set.  The Fox Builder punch made quick work of punching out the individual pieces, and then I used the Fine Tip glue for assembly.

I think I left the sentiment stamp set off my list – this is a fantastic size and font for making birthday cards.  I think I have used this stamp more than any other out of the new catalog.

With our background stamped in Smoky Slate, the sentiment is stamped in Blushing Bride, giving good color balance to the card.

Here is our cute card:




Look at all the dimension you have on this card…
