I have a few stamps that look like a background stamp, but they are not big enough to be one. Do you know what I mean? I was at a stamping convention and all the background stamps were just short of a standard size card. Why would they do that?
Anyway, I wish this flower stamp was bigger, but I guess you get to be a little more creative to fill the gaps. I love how the background is what is stamped and not the flowers themselves – I can’t remember what that’s called. Anyway, I used white-on-white embossing so that I could resist the ink and color in the flowers.
The patterned paper matched my colors exactly, which was cool. I wanted to use Prima paper flowers but I didn’t have any that matched, so I just punched some out of the paper. This little flower punch was literally one of my first scrapbooking supplies 15 years ago.
So, next week’s card is going to be really cool. I made a couple of them, so I may post multiple videos (haven’t recorded them yet). When I showed the cards to my kids, they LOVED them. And, hubby thought they were awesome too. Stay tuned!!
Have a great weekend!
