Custom Stamped Backgrounds

Custom Stamped Backgrounds

It is so nice to have a few days off with the bank holiday this weekend, although I had some time off at the beginning of the week as family were visiting. Hence, why it has been a little quiet on the blog this week; I been very busy, but it wasn’t very craft related! Today I want to show you how easy it is to get more from your stamps by creating your own custom stamped backgrounds. Using multiple stamps of different sizes along with an array of inks, you can create unique and colourful backgrounds for any card getting even more from your stamp sets.

Distress Ink Emboss Resist Background

Distress Ink Emboss Resist Background

I recently got a few items through the post that I had order from Amazon ages ago, but took a while to arrive as they were coming from overseas. For the cheaper prices I was willing to wait! The main item I used for this card was a background 6″ x 6″ cling stamp, my first background stamp. It was really easy to use, and gave a really interesting background when I combined it with distress inks. Using embossing powder and heat setting this before distress inks are applied, allows the embossing to resist the inks and keep the look of the background stamp.

Shaker Card Tutorial: Mothers Day

Shaker Card Tutorial: Mothers Day

Shaker cards have been around for quite some time but I have never done a tutorial on them. It is such a great way to add interest to the card and you can personalise each card by changing the embellishments you use inside the window.

They are quite easy to make if you have the supplies, and the main thing you need is either double sided foam tape or some fun foam and double sided adhesive tape, and some acetate! What you put inside the shaker window is up to you!
