Today I’m going to show how to use Lovely Wishes stamp set to make backgrounds for your card projects. I like the uniqueness of making my own backgrounds using rubber stamps.
Here’s the first card I have to share.
- It doesn’t take long to stamp a background using only black ink.
- Other products used: Sentiment – Flourishing Phrases, Rose Garden Thinlits for the sentiment shape (retiring product).
My second card is exactly the same as my first, except I added color and changed the sentiment.
- Lovely Wishes is a two step stamp set. In the black and white card above, I only used ONE of the two stamps for this image. On this card, I used color and the second stamp to “fill in” color for the outline images.
- Colors Used: Wild Wasabi and Powder Pink.
- Sentiment is from Eastern Beauty stamp set.
My next two cards are ones I received in swap. The first is made by Brenda Cardinal.
- The colors she used were the same as my second project, but she added a Basic Gray cardstock panel to give the project an entirely different feel.
- Other products used: Petal Pair Textured Impressions Embossing Folder and Layering Ovals Framelits.
Here’s the last card, also received in the swap. It was made by Mary Kiley.
- As did Brenda’s card, this card uses oval shapes as focal pieces. However, Mary chose to use two overlapping ovals on her card.
- Colors Used: Berry Burst and Old Olive
- Other products used: Garden Trellis Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, Berry Burst 3/8″ Metallic-Edge Ribbon, Layering Ovals Framelits.
If the Lovely Wishes stamp set is one you want to own, you will need to act quickly. It is retiring and will no longer be available at the end of this month.
Well, you’ve seen how I use Lovely Wishes stamp set to make backgrounds. Do you think this is a technique you might like to try?
