Background stamps aren’t just for backgrounds!

Today I’m showcasing another card with some of the stamps I design for WOW! with a fab stencil inspired by Marion Emberson. This card shows you background stamps aren’t just for backgrounds, and I used the Foliage Background Bold stamp set to create a focal trio image. I loved how this turned out and you can easily change up the colours, the sentiments and the size of the foliage you use!

background stamps aren't just for backgrounds: creating the focal elements

Start off by stamping part of the Foliage Background Bold stamp set in Catherine Pooler Mint To Be ink. Only ink up the foliage you want to use, instead of inking the whole background up.

Again, stamp the same foliage twice more, this time in Catherine Pooler Mardi Gras and Deck The Halls ink. Next, fussy cut out the images – this design is nice and simple so doesn’t take long. 

background stamps aren't just for backgrounds: creating the background

For the background, add Altenew Embossing Paste through the Lotsadots Stencil and allow to dry. Once dry, foam mount this onto a card base.

Foam mount the stamped foliage onto the front of the cad panel. Next, heat emboss a sentiment from from the Thank you Sentiments stamp set in gold onto black card. Trim this into thin strip and add this to the centre of the card.
