Pearl String Bold Prints Card

The Bold Prints cling stamps are such a huge help to create backgrounds for your cards and other projects. The designs are fun and their size is very convenient. Today I am sharing a fun stamped card that I made using the Pearl String Bold Prints stamp.

For my project, I wanted to show how pretty this background is, and how fun it can look when you combine it with other products. So, I started by stamping the full background onto a Snow Layering card panel. This type of stamp is quite big (6″x6″), so I inked it by parts. I used one of my favorite Ombré ink colors: Neon Chartreuse to Blue. First, I inked the upper part of the stamp and then, I rotated the pad to ink the lower part of it. That way the colors seem to be continued. After that, I stamped the image.

I also stamped a sentiment over a piece of Snow layering paper. The sentiment belongs to  a stamp set named Hello Gorgeous. I created a shadow image by stamping the sentiment twice. First with Intense Black ink, and then with Blue Neon ink.  I moved the stamp a little bit to create the shadow effect. After that, I trimmed the sentiment into a strip with a left angled side.

Next, I proceed to die cut three butterflies over the main panel. These dies belong to a Stamp and Cut set called Butterfly Pair. The dies don’t cut out the image completely, which makes them very unique. They are quite pretty, and they were just perfect for the sentiment that I used for my card. To finish off my project, I adhered the panel over a card base, I adhered the sentiment strip with foam tape, I added some gemstones, and glaze details over some of the string dots.

I had a lot of fun creating this card, so I made a couple. The background looks so pretty, that know I want to try making more cards using other Ombré ink colors along with other sentiments and die shapes.
