Simon Says Stamp | Subtle Background Stamping – Kindness

While bold and vibrant colors (and cards) are my absolute favorites, I do occasionally enjoy creating less bright projects. I wanted the die cut word Kindness be the star of the show on this card, so I decided to go with softer colors.

Like this project? Pin it and save for later!

To create this card I first die cut Kindness out of white cardstock (set the die cut aside) and used the negative to sketch it on my white panel, this helped me visualize my card and decide where I needed to stamp the flowers. I used Stone ink color for stamping flower outlines and only did a cluster on the left hand side spanning a bit to the right.

I “colored” flowers using matching layer stamps using Duckling, Twirling Tutu and Surf Blue. I think this is a beautiful color combination, perfect for Spring. To held the white Kindness die cut stand out a little better I die cut an identical word out of adhesive foam sheet in black, adhered white die cut on top and adhered that onto the stamped panel. The offsetting of the white die cut wasn’t intentional, and I didn’t like the way it turned out at first, but after I stamped “may your day be filled with” from the Big Add Ons set in black ink I really liked the final result.

I adhered my stamped panel onto a gray card base and added several clear sequins with a small clear drop adhered inside several of the largest sequins.
