Simon Says Stamp | Background Stamping with Thankful Flowers. Video

Hello and welcome back for another Yippee For Yana video! It’s been a long time since I did any pattern or background stamping using non background stamps; and since pattern stamping is one of my favorite ways to make backgrounds for my handmade cards I challenged myself to find a floral stamp I like and use it to create a pretty background for a card.

CARD DETAILS

I picked the floral cluster from the Thankful Flowers stamp set. I pulled out my MISTI stamping tool, Simon’s Intense Black ink, and Neenah Solar White 80 lb cardstock and stamped my heart out. It only took 4 impressions to cover the panel for an A2 card and I made sure to rotate the floral cluster so that my stamping didn’t look identical. I would like to make this card again, but use a gray ink pad instead of black for stamping the flower outline, or perhaps even do some heat embossing in gold or like gold color for a softer look.

Having stamped the background I picked several colors, I settled on a color combo, and from there I picked my Copic markers to do the coloring. I started by coloring the leaves for the panel. I used YG01, YG03, G94 and G99 markers to color the leaves. Next, I used R20, R22 and R24 markers to color some of the flowers red; Y35, Y13 and Y11 markers to color some flowers yellow; RV34, RV11 and RV00 to color some flowers pink; and finally the last flower was colored using violets, BV11, BV00 and BV000.

The flower centers were colored using a C9 marker to look almost black. I wish I had picked a lighter color, maybe a C7 marker or a C5, I think that would have looked a bit better.

The stamp set, the Thankful Flowers includes small dot clusters and so I used those dots to fill the gaps in between the images. I stamped them in black ink and I used Versafine Onyx Black for this.

To create a sentiment I used an R22 marker and colored a piece of white cardstock to create a custom color paper. Next, I waited for the paper to dry and then heat embossed a simple sentiment that reads “Hope Your Day is the Best Day Ever” in white embossing powder; the sentiment comes from the Birthday Word Mix 1 set from Simon Says Stamp.

I cut the sentiment out using my paper trimmer and adhered 3 pieces of scrap cardstock to the back of the panel to create dimension. I wanted to add some dimension, but I didn’t want to use foam adhesive squares as that would have added too much dimension, so I added just a little bit to dimension by adhering 3 panels of cardstock. Then I used foam adhesive to adhere the sentiment panel to the card.

I also used a white pen and added white dot details to the flower center and added highlights to some of the flower petals.

I hope you like this card idea!
Have fun stamping!

    1. I’m not able to access the video, but the card sure is pretty! Thanks, Yana

    1. I like both design. Using different medium makes the same design having a different regard on the design.
      Merci Yana , your vidéo are always very well explanatory and the choice of colors are always makes the design come alive.
