Background Stamps + Tutorial

0 Comments


Hello and good morning! ^__^

I’m Halak and today I’ll be taking you through a tutorial for projects using one of my favorite background stamps by Peekaboo Designs, the Quilted Love.

This stamp is not only great for Valentine’s Day projects and love themed ones but also makes a great background for casual and fun projects.

So, let’s get to the steps for this card!

The first thing I did was take purple cardstock and stamp Quilted Love with white pigment ink, randomly.

After this, I took the same stamp and on white cardstock, using distress inks, stamped repeatedly. (I went kinda crazy here, was having fun mixing the colors!) 😀

So this is what it looked like. Pretty cool huh? I definitely will be doing more of these colorful backgrounds in the future!

Then, I took the pretty Chrysanthemum, colored it up and adhered to my colorful background.

You can see that big bloom (this was before I coated some of the petals in fine glitter) in the above picture where I was also trying to figure out the layout et al.

After this, I added a die-cut and some washi tape bits for that extra pop of color. Boom. Done!

I also made another project, check it out :

Super simple and great for those who do not like coloring, the background is made of pink and blue distress ink smooshed onto paper with the help of acetate.

Here’s a photograph :

It is the first layer, but I kept building on color as I wanted a darker background.

Once it dried, I stamped Quilted Love in versafine, trimmed it and matted it against white cardstock. This is what it looked like before matting :

After that, stamped a couple of blooms from Lotus Delight on white cardstock, fussy-cut them and adhered to project.

Stamped sentiment, added sequins and some colorful washi tape. You can also add glitter to the flowers to jazz them up a bit!

That’s about it folks! Hope you liked  the projects and they inspired you to create something new!

Have a lovely day! *Hugs*
