World of dreams background technique class

Hi guys, Stampin Up and Crunchie Crafts make a great team.

In today's post:
  • A world of Dreams and a bonus technique class.
  • Birthday Celebrations Day 3
  • Feel Goods

A world of Dreams ........

Thats the name of one of my new stamp sets from Stampin Up. 

I don't know about you guys but I see a lot of silhouette cards on peoples blogs and I always fancied having a go.  Especially the ones where they have such lovely backgrounds.

Well, I ordered my set, I just love this one, so cute and it has birds on it too. Next I set about doing some research and some trial runs to see how it was best to create these cute backgrounds.  

The easiest way is this

Background techniques using a clear block.

Take you clear plastic block and colour it with your Stamp'n'Write markers in your chosen colours.  
Next spritz your block with water.
The press down on your paper.  
This transfers all the ink to your paper leaving your block clear and your paper with a beautiful coloured background ready to stamp on.  

Today I am going to show you the card made using the tall stems in this set.


Bermuda bay with matching DSP and Basic Pearls


Blushing Bride with matching DSP and three small flowers


Tangerine Tango with some basic jewels to finish it off.

Aren't these just so cute.  I love the way the backgrounds really set of the image.  This has been stamped and then stamped off a second time to create the slightly lighter one.
