Stamping Patterned Backgrounds

Hi there! Today’s video shares a couple ways to create your own stamped backgrounds that look like unique patterned paper and add stunning effects to your cards. I love using stamps to create my own patterned paper and there are some great sets on the market that help give awesome results!

I will also share a fun way to use a pencil eraser to color in stamped images. 🙂

For the first two cards, I used the Halftone Circles stamp set to create fun geometric backgrounds. This stamp set has so many possibilities and with just a bit of creativity, you can get amazing results!

On the first example, I stamped the circles in a variety of colors all over the background making sure they overlap to create new colors and fun patterns. I added a large You die cut and sentiment in the center and added it onto a card base.

For the second card, I stamped a monochromatic background using the Cool Summer Night ink set down the card. These ink pads take out all of the guesswork and layer for a cool “textured” effect. Then, I added a large sentiment using the Awesome die and stamp set.

On the next card, I used some small images from the Awesome stamp set and created a colorful stamped sun ray background using lots of masking. I added an adorable bear from the Bear Hugs stamp set and a large sentiment from the Best Ever Greetings stamp set.

For the last card, I stamped a background of images from the Be Strong stamp set and colored them by stamping with a pencil eraser. To color the images, I pressed the eraser into an ink pad and dabbed it onto the paper several times inside each image. This technique creates a fun abstract look and gives a cool way to color in images.
