Hi crafty friends! Today I am sharing 4 different looking cards using the same background stamp. I will demonstrate 3 different ways to work with a background stamp to get different results. You can use the same techniques with any background stamp you have on stash. I used the Poinsettia background stamp since it’s such a gorgeous design and it comes from the latest STAMPtember release.
You can enjoy the video below or at my YouTube channel
1. stamp and color
For the first technique all you have to do is stamp the background stamp and color with your favorite medium. I used my Altenew markers for that and then added a sentiment on top. It is a simple design but depending on the design it can be time consuming coloring everything. So this is not a card to mass produce but rather a card for someone special ! The sentiment is the SCRIPTY LET’S CELEBRATE Wafer Die again from the latest STAMPtember collection.
2. Heat emboss
For the second technique you can emboss the design using different colored embossing powders on various cardstock. You can get completely different looks this way and I share 2 cards with this technique.
For the first one I used antique gold embossing powder over red cardstock. I went for a traditional vintage look and here is the outcome
For the second card I went again with antique gold powder but this time over white cardstock. The two cards look different but they really are the same! This time I just die cut a sentiment to stick it on top and I was done. And you can see how I got a more modern look and feel on this card.
3. Stamp and cut
For the third technique I used only an area of the background. I stamped and colored only one poinsettia and then cut it out. This way you can create a focal point that you can pop on top of you card.
