Create 4 Cards And A Tag From One Catherine Pooler Background Stamp

By | 5 July, 2020

Do you have an inspiration journal?  I have taken 2 classes on where to find and collect ideas and inspiration…or your muse.  They were amongst my favorite classes.  I found myself looking at things in a different way and I also started keeping an inspiration journal.  I stash pictures and I draw card layout sketches. I also keep color combinations that I like to use for future projects.

I pulled out my journal and found 4 card ideas and a tag idea using background stamps.  I decided to use one Catherine Pooler Background Stamp called Cottage Garden, her Happy script word die, and her Layered Greetings stamp set to create the cards.  I pulled out three other dies for my tag from MFT Stamps and Sunny Studio Stamps to complete my creations.

Card 1:

For this card, I masked off a 1″ strip and then stamped the background stamp vertically on a horizontal card front.  I colored in the flowers with my Altenew Alcohol Markers, added the birthday sentiment and the happy die cut with 4 layers glued together.  I popped it onto a black card base and I love how this turned out!

Card 2:

This card has the card front stamped completely in Catherine Pooler Midnight Black ink and colored in with alcohol markers.  I added a layer of vellum with the birthday sentiment heat embossed in black and the 4 layers of happy word die to finish it off.  You can even see the white gel pen details that I added to some of the flowers below the vellum.  This is my favorite of all 4 of the cards.

Card 3:

This panel was stamped in Versa Mark and heat embossed in white embossing powder.  I added a gold panel behind it, a gold word die cut and the sentiment heat embossed in gold.  I find this card to be more elegant.

I had to do one wonky card!  I stamped two different corners of the background stamp and wonky angles and then colored those in.  I added the sentiment in the space and the happy script word die above it.

I made this one to show how beautiful this stamp is just done in black and white.  I added the Love You die cut which is from MFT Stamps, as is the circle die I used to cut the floral piece with.  MFT stamps has my favorite layered stax shapes dies.  The tag is from Sunny Studio Stamps circle tag set.  I added a piece of ribbon and this can get attached to a gift I send later this summer!
