WPlus9 | Stamped Christmas Hellebore Background. Video

Hello friends! It’s been awhile since I posted anything to the blog, my Mom is visiting us and we’ve been spending a lot of time together leaving the blog a bit neglected. I should get back to regular posting soon! Today I have a card and video tutorial to share created for the WPlus9 blog and Youtube channel.

I love to stamp my own backgrounds using my stamps and with the Holiday Season being not too far away I pulled out my Hellebore Builder set and a few other all-time favorites from WPlus9.

CARD DETAILS

I didn’t do any kind of masking as I was working on my background. I did my stamping in clusters – stamped one flower and added leaves, branches and berries around it. Next, stamped another flower and repeated the steps.

Whenever I stamp backgrounds using my layering images I prefer to stamp base layers first (I call this “sketching out” my background) and once I have all of the base layers stamped then I add in the detailed second and third layer images. I feel my stamping process goes a lot faster this way and there’s less room for error, too.

I stamped my background onto a 4 ¼ x 5 ½” panel and once my stamping was done I adhered the panel onto an A2 side folding card base. To create a sentiment I heat embossed a beautiful message from the Iconic Christmas stamp set in gold embossing powder onto a piece of white cardstock, trimmed it into a banner and foam mounted onto my card. I added a bit of red and white bakers twine and called this card done!

    1. Another beautiful background!! Enjoy the rest of your visit with your mom. I was at a stamp show in Phoenix this past weekend and watched a woman demonstrate using dye inks to “watercolor”! Seems that idea is catching on?!! Anyway, thanks for sharing — as always.

    1. Another beautiful background Yana. These are such lovely stamps and they really do make for a gorgeous background. Well done my dear!

    1. I am 85 yrs. old and you inspire me every day with 1 lovely card after another. I so enjoy seeing your design and color choices. Very rich and elegant. TFS your God given talent with we in the paper crafting world.

    1. What a beautiful background you created… it almost looks real! Love everything about your card, including the “updated” traditional colors you used.
