May Technique - Double Background Stamping

The Double Background Stamping is very popular right now.  By stamping a large background stamp first on your cardstock and then stamp a smaller background stamp in a different, you can achieve a unique look to your cards.  This fun and easy technique is one that you will be using on a regular basis.

Let me show you what I mean:

Here is our first card.  As you can see this card is very simple, but it really stands out and is also very pretty.  I loved the Wink of Stella in Gold and Clear to accent the flower.

Card 1 –  I’m Here for You
Stamp Sets: You’ve Got This 
Ink:  Black, Blushing Bride, Blackberry Bliss
Paper:  Sahara Sand Base, Blackberry Layer, Whisper White 3 ¾ x 5
Accessories: Blushing Bride Sequins, Wink of Stella (Gold & Clear)

Here is the second card that we made at class.  It reminds me of the flowers that you see along a building. 

Card 2 – May the Very Best
Stamp Sets:  Wild About Flowers, Woodgrain
Ink:  Old Olive, Tip Top Taupe, Tangelo Twist
Paper:  Old Olive Base, Tangelo Twist Layer, Whisper White 3 ¾ x 5 & 1 x 2 ¾, Vellum scraps
Accessories:  Triple Banner Punch, Twine, Dimensions, Glue Stick

 Here is the Fancy Fold Card, it is called a Collar Fold and can also be used like a shirt with a collar, just turn the card on it's side.  But for this card, we wanted the "Happy Birthday to You" to peek out of the card.  Another fun card and a fold that I will definitely use again!

Fancy Project – Collar Fold – Flower Corsage
Stamp Sets: Flower Shop, Petite Pairs, Circle of Spring
Ink:  Black, Rose Red or Lost Lagoon
Paper:  Rose Red Base, Mossy Meadow Layer or Lost Lagoon Layer, Whisper White 3 ¾ x 5, DSP 3 ¾ x 5
Accessories: Glue Dots, Pansy Punch, Petite Petal Punch, Pearl Jewels or Candy Dots

Here is the diagram that shows how you cut the Designer Series Paper to create the fold.
