03.20.2023…..Happy Monday my stampin’ friends! Sometimes all you need is a “background” stamp….and a maybe sentiment, and a few embellishments, and an embossing folder…but basically a “background” stamp! Well, that was my inspiration for today’s card….to create a card with a background stamp as a focus. I used Tahitian Tide and Pacific Point on the Timeless Tiles Stamp, which really made it pop! Hope this card inspires you to pull out your background stamps and start creating!
For this card, I started with some Basic White Thick Cardstock, embossed it with the Timeworn Type 3D Folder, and adhere it to a Pacific Point Cardstock base. Next, I inked up the Timeless Tiles Stamp with my Tahitian Tide Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamped “off” once, and then used a Sponge Dauber to add some Pacific Point to the center of the stamp. To give it that watercolored look, I misted the stamp with a Stampin’ Spritzer (filled with water), before I stamped in on a piece of Basic White Cardstock. After I used a Heat Tool to thoroughly dry the cardstock, I cut it out with one of the Deckled Rectangle Dies.
To add even more of a watercolored look, I used a Water Painter, dipped in just a bit of Pacific Point ink, to add some splattering to the stamped image. I used a Heat Tool once again to dry the cardstock, then used Stampin’ Dimensionals to adhere it to the card base.
The sentiment (from Honeybee Home Stamp Set) was heat-embossed on Crumb Cake Cardstock, cut out, and popped up with a few Stampin’ Dimensionals. Tucked underneath the sentiment are a few swirls of Linen Thread. For a bit of bling, I added Pastel Adhesive-Backed Sequins and a few of the little pearls from the For Everything Fancy Sequins.
