Background Stamping with Words

Background Stamping with Words 2 The inspiration for this card came from THIS CARD, starting with the Tilly’s Magic Garden Stamp Set and the color palette of Melon Ice, Pixie Dust, Flirty Fuchsia and a bit of It’s a Girl thrown in.

I started with the idea of using the pineapple from I Pick You stamp set and the Hello Die, but that led to using the Hello World Stamp Set.  And when I had all those pieces together, I decided the card didn’t need the Hello Die.

View the video tutorial to see how to make this hand made card!

My favorite part was using the words from the Hello World Stamp Set to create a background for the pineapple to be layered over.

and let’s just talk about Melon Ice for a minute.  That color is seriously SWOON WORTHY!  A super light limey yellow that is subtle, yet it pops at the same time!

    Catherine – this card is so cool! I love those colors and I really like the flower border and the using a large block to add multiple stamps in the perfect place. I can’t wait to give something like this a try!!
