Using small stamps to create pattern backgrounds – WOW& Catherine Pooler Hop

Two of my favourite companies have come together today for a fabulous Instagram hop celebrating some fabulous products including coordinating embossing glitters to match some of the new ink colours from Catherine Pooler. I’ve used this colour combo to create this fun birthday using the Take a Peek stamp set to create my own patterned background.

Using small stamps to create pattern backgrounds

creating pattern backgrounds:

For this card, I used two small stamps from the Take A Peek stamp set, the bowler hat and the bow tie to repeatedly stamp on a card panel to create a custom background. The colours used to stamp with were: Glitz, Uptown and Dress Blue

Alternate colours and shift the position of the stamps on each new row for added variation. Trim this down and to a white card panel. 

how to embellish pattern backgrounds

To break up the background, die-cut a white panel using a dotted die from the Scallops & Dots die set. In addition, also die-cut a scalloped die out of a card panel covered with Dress Blue embossing glitter.

Die-cut a window through both of these die-cuts, the layer-up with foam pads onto the front of the card for added dimension. Stamp and heat emboss a sentiment from the Happy Sentiments stamp set in Glitz embossing glitter and fussy cut out to add to the front.

Lastly, embellish inside the die-cut window with a few sequins from the Park Avenue Sequin Mix
