Background Stamping with Ilina Crouse

0 comments

Hi everyone,  It’s Ilina here today taking over Catherine’s blog with a fun card using the Happiness Enclosed and Love is in the Air stamp sets along with the heart die.

IMG_0275 So let’s jump into how I made this card. I started with a panel from Premium White card stock measuring 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″. I drew diagonal lines by connecting the top corners with a mark 4 1/2″ from the top (similar like drawing 2 diagonal lines in a square).

This gave me a central point in which I stamped one of the heart images. Next, using a gridded ruler I drew parallel lines to the ones I already had and made sure they were all equal distance from each other and that there is enough space to stamp the images in the grid space created.

I started little above and below the stamped image for that reason. Next using the grid I stamped the rest of the images using Be Mine, It’s a Girl and Rocking Red inks.

IMG_1145 copy After I was done with the heart enclosed circles, I stamped tiny hearts and the little hearts in between the circles. Make sure your panel is completely dry, then using quality eraser erase the grid lines. Trim it down to 3 3/4″ x 5 1/2″ .Add Nuvo Drops and let it dry.

IMG_1146 While my panel was drying I die cut a circle from vellum card stock and two Love dies, one from silver glitter paper and one from Midnight premium card stock. I adhered them together with the glitter paper on the top and the black on the bottom, offsetting it for little bit to create shadow look.

IMG_0278 I stamped the “forever” from the Love is in the Air stamp set on Premium Midnight card stock strip using Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

At this point I was ready to assemble my pieces and added them to a Midnight card base.

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you are inspired to create something today.

Hi all, it’s Heather here.  Thank you, Catherine, for having me back as a guest on your blog. For my card today I wanted to create my own background, so I chose shades of pink and red inks to stamp out the double-ended hearts on an angle.

Heather To create a custom colored love die cut that would match my background, I used the direct to paper technique with Party Dress before die cutting. I then layered it onto another love die that was cut out of black cardstock. Just that little bit of layering really helps the sentiment to stand out.

The postage stamp dies nest nicely together to create an easy inlaid die cut focal point.

It wasn’t standing out in just the white against my background, so I cut a black panel slightly bigger than the die cut and layered them all together. This panel was popped up on the cardfront and my card was complete. You could add a few sequins or Nuvo drops, but it looks nice without them too.

I look forward to seeing how this inspires you!
