Stamping on Patterned Paper Using Dark Bold Patterns!

By | 05/26/2016

Here is another quick card…actually, 3 cards, that I have to share with you today.  I’m using the same technique of stamping on my patterned paper.

Previously, I used a small subtle pattern and a dark ink color.

Not today!


Today I’m using the dark bold florals that I love so much!

You have to admit that this is a quick card with a WOW factor!  3 quick layers to cut, one stamp inked and embossed, then glue the layers together and POW!  That jumps right out at you.  No extra embellishment needed.


Now…my heat embossing isn’t quite perfect, but that’s okay.  You get the idea.

I chose a dark background with a busy pattern and a gigantic sentiment from the Another Thank You set that is retiring on May 31.  Get it a while supplies last!  It’s a great set with a variety of thank you’s in various fonts.  I’ve used mine more than almost any other stamp set that I have.

I also used white embossing powder on the dark background.  You could also use the white craft ink pad or the white stazon ink as well.  I like the shiny texture of the heat embossing.

Here are two other cards that I made with the Layering Love stamp set coming out on June 1.  This is not as large a sentiment, but you can see it’s still a fairly large stamp.

This paper is the Affectionately Yours Specialty Designer Paper also available on June 1.

Here, I added some ribbon and sequins, but the larger the sentiment, the less you need embellishments.  A bold statement is a bold statement!
