Hope you are all having a memorable summer! I feel like it has gone by way too fast & I’m so not looking forward to cooler weather.
To keep things in the spirit of bright and fun, I’d love to share with you my latest project. I wanted to use a large background stamp as my focal point of a card. I have been enjoying the inspiration shared over at Online Card Classes (Stretch Your Stamps 2) and thought I would share my take on featuring a large background stamp. I love the way it turned out and as you can see from the video, but it requires quite a few steps. I don’t think it’s the fastest type of card to make, but it does make quite a statement. The colors are so bold and iridescent no matter where the light hits it!
Here’s the how-to-video I created. Feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel as I will now be updating it regularly with new projects & inspiration.
