Creating a background with one stamp

posted in: Blog, jeni 0

Hi, I love all the stamps by Concord and 9th.  I wanted to find a new way to use the flower center stamp from the Pretty Petals stamp set.  I decided to create my own background pattern.  I trimmed some smooth white Neenah card to 4.25″ x 5.5″ and started stamping.  I started at the bottom of the card and worked out and up using different colours of ink by Hero Arts. I used Soft Pool and Pale Tomato from the Quiet Afternoon ink set, and the Tide Pool, Soft Granite, and Orange Soda from the Summer Splash stamp set.  I made sure to rotate the stamp, and tried not to get the same colours next to each other.




I trimmed another piece of Neenah card to use as my sentiment strip.  I stamped “Hello Lovely” with black ink and adhered this to the background pattern.  I adhered this whole piece to a top folding card base made from some Marshmallow card, and decided to add some shine with some sparkly sequins from a few different sequin shaker mixes.




This is a multi seasonal style of card. Use different colour combinations for different seasons.  Cool blues for Winter. Reds, yellows and orange for Autumn, Bright shades for Summer and softer shades for Spring.
