Hello everyone! Do you love to make your own custom backgrounds? I do and I can never have enough of them! This time I’m experimenting with sentiment stamps from Lia Griffith and stamping several patterns using grey, blue and black inks.
I intentionally chose stamps from Lia for the fun and playful handwritten fonts. I didn’t want these sentiments to appear as sentiments on my stamped backgrounds but rather as design elements. To achieve this and to make them somewhat hard to read I stamped them a little bit at an angle.
I used a new color combo for me – black, grey, light blue and a hint of gold. One of my backgrounds was stamped using Soft Pool, another one using Charcoal and the last one combined both plus black. You can learn more about using sentiment stamps to make a background in my video below:

I kept the rest of rest of my cards very simple – I die cut a swallowtail butterfly for each, added a gold heat embossed “hello” from Friends by Lia, and tucked in a few leaves from the Color Layering Hibiscus set.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have fun stamping!
