Custom background with stamping
Posted on November 03 2018
It is Zsofi here and I am so excited to share with you my very first project as Design Team member for LDRS Creative! I am featuring some gorgeous Fall stamps on my card today along with a bunch of beautiful Hybrid inks. Let's dive in how i prepared my card.
I started with stamping one of the bold leaves from the Fall Full O Leaves stamp set using the 2nd generation stamping technique. I used a stamp positioner tool to help me lining up the stamps perfectly.
I started at the left upper corner, placed the leaf stamp hanging off my white card base a little and placed a simple typing paper over the card base. I inked up the stamp with Scarlet Rose Hybrid ink and stamped it on the typing paper. Then removed the paper and immediately stamped it on the card base. I got a much lighter coloured leaf in this way. I repeated the same process once more to get a slightly darker result and cleaned my stamp with a stamp cleaner before placing it next to the dark red leaf and moving on to the next colour.
I did the same with all the ink colours: In your face orange, Bali Blue, Olive branch and Dan-d-lion. I made sure to clean the stamps very well before changing colours. When the whole card base was covered, i went back and stamped the textured part of the leaf using the same inks, just this time i stamped directly on the card base. It looks so pretty, like I used different shades of each colour but i didn't.
I wanted to keep the rest of the card simple, so i chose a beautiful sentiment from the Happy Fall Sentiments stamp set. I stamped it on a simple white rectangle with Alloy Hybrid ink. I gave it a mat using vellum and popped it up on the card using doubled up 3D foam tape for extra dimension. I added a few clear sequins and my card is finished.
I love the pretty colours, perfect for Fall and even for Thanksgiving. I hope you got inspired and will try this technique.
Until next time, happy crafting!
