Repeat stamping for easy backgrounds

One way to create cards quickly is to use repeat stamping for easy backgrounds. I’m using one simple stamp to create a fun background after creating a beautiful ink blended panel. Pair it with some heat embossing and you have a match made in heaven! So let’s get started!.

repeat stamping for easy backgrounds: creating the blend

Start off by using an ink blending tool and sponge to blend Do-Si-Do Catherine Pooler ink onto one-third of a card panel. Next, blend on Coral Cabana ink onto the middle third of the card panel. To prevent getting ink on your fingers, I like to hold my cardstock using my MISTI cut-align tool.

To add a little more depth to the card, finish the card panel by blending on Party Dress Ink to the top third of the panel. Go back and forth between the colours to get a smooth blend. 

repeat stamping for easy backgrounds: adding heat embossing

Once the panel is complete and dry, start stamping in embossing ink one of the floral stamps from the Best Things In Life Floral stamp set. For added variation, rotate the design as you stamp. Next, cover this with Gold embossing powder and heat set

To finish this card off, heat emboss a sentiment in gold from the Ladies Who Lunch stamp set onto black card. Trim this down and foam mount onto the card. Lastly, add a few clear bubble embellishments scattered around the card.
