Background Stamps Two Ways


Hey friends, I'm up on the Sweet n Sassy blog today sharing two cards with you featuring the new Psalm 23 Background stamp. On the first card I used it for it's intended purpose -- as a background. On the second card I created a scenic background and used it as the main feature!


To create this first card I embossed the dandelion in white embossing powder on blue card stock, and then added some random leaves in a moonlight white ink. I distressed the edges and inked them in chipped sapphire distress ink. Since I love lace and doilies, I added a pretty strip of white lace to one side before adhering it over my Psalm 23 background. The dragonfly was embossed in blue, colored with real brush pens, and then made to sparkle with some Nuvo glitter drops.

For my second card I created a scene using three different scene silhouette stamp sets before embossing the new Psalm 23 Background stamp over top. I wanted to keep this card fairly simple so a paper crimped background and some elegant photo corners were all I added.
