Hello, Nadine here showing how I used the Rose Garden background stamp on a card. Sometimes background stamps can be intimidating, especially when trying to figure out how to use them on cards. So I thought I would share one of my favorite ways to use background stamps.
I first cut a piece of Alabaster Cardstock a little bigger than 4" x 6" so I knew the stamp would fit the cardstock piece. Then using a dauber I randomly started blending some Heather Surface Ink into the cardstock but leaving some areas white. In the white areas, I then blended in some Sea Surface Ink until I covered the entire piece of cardstock.
Then I stamped the Rose Garden stamp with some Embossing Ink and embossed it with Alabaster Ultra Fine Embossing Powder. Cut down my cardstock piece to the size of the background stamp and cut it into equal sized strips and adhered to a card base with dimensional foam tape.
I then stamped the "you" stamp from the Butterfly Sentiment Stamp Set with the Embossing Ink and embossed it with Gilded Ultra Fine Embossing Powder and die cut it out. Then stamped the "Thinking About" sentiment with the Sea Surface Ink. Adhered the sentiments to the front of my card with dimensional foam tape.
Thank you for stopping by and happy crafting!
