Video: Creating a Background with Small Stamps

by Kelly Rasmussen August 24, 2020 7 Comments

Today I'm showing how small stamps can make a big impact on your cards by creating a custom background. Watch the video below to see how it all comes together.

(If you are having trouble viewing this video, please try watching it HERE on YouTube.)

The postage stamp images from the Stamped Just For You set were perfect for creating this rainbow background using various colors of Reactive Inks

The sentiment was created using the Hello Stamp + Cut set along with Paradise and Kiwi cardstock. And the Canary card base makes this card extra happy!

I encourage you to look at some of your smaller stamps and see if you can make them the star of your project.

Thanks for joining me today!

This video is absolutely wonderful! And it makes the blog. So appreciated, I always stumble for ideas but this is great and if you have the patience it would be great to emboss each one as you stamp with white or clear to really make it pop!
This reminds me of the fancy doors die that Iove so much, I think it’s one of my very favorites.
Thank you so much for some great inspiration :-)

Really enjoyed this video by Kelly Rasmussen. She gave me ideas on how to use some of my smaller stamps. Thank you for the information. I will definitely be making some cards and using my small stamps to make my background.

Delightful card and great idea! I don’t know that I have that much patience though! Might try it with the coffee stamps from a kit of long ago!
