Default TLC699 ~ Background Mix and Match ~ {7/16/18}

Hi Guys, it is the third Monday of the month and it is my turn again to challenge you. This was a bit of a challenge for me this month as I have been crazy at work and haven't a lot of time but I did find a technique that I thought was fun that also gives you a chance to stretch your supplies - I always love the opportunity to dig into my supplies and give them some love...


This technique requires using your background stamps and using them to create a blocked panel (There are four blocks stamped with a different color/stamp). I actually used color ink on mine which I almost never do so this one was a big win

  • Stamp a quarter of the card with one background stamp - You can either mask off your card, draw on some guide lines, or use a stamping tool (like a MISTI).
  • Then rotate using another background stamp (or multiple stamps) and a different color of ink.
  • Rotate again and again to complete the panel
  • As an alternative, you could also do something similar with inks and embossing folders (ink up the folder, put the card stock into the folder - one quarter of it, run it though and repeat with the other four corners)

I hope you have fun choosing which textures and backgrounds you want to use... Just HAVE FUN with it!!

This was fun, Lyn. I was able to make a card before work; though I'm not 100% happy with the finished composition I'm happy enough to upload it when I get back home later.

Each and every card I saw in the gallery was great; I have to try this technique. With so much designer paper, I don't use my bg stamps as often as I should; this is a new way to use them.

Finally got to hang out in my craft room tonight. Wanted to create a card for this challenge with a slightly different approach. Instead of masking off my card & stamping each quadrant with a different stamp/ink color, I took 1 large stamp, masked it and inked each quadrant with a different color ink. I think stamped my CS and added my flowers and hello. Here's my card:
