Stamp Happy Day 3 Card 1

Day 3 is all about background stamps. I own one Hero Arts cling background stamps, so that is what I chose. I have had this stamp for many years and have no idea of its actual name, so I will call it Dotted Background Cling Stamp.

I followed Jennifer McGuire’s video and idea of shifting the background stamp to change it a bit, and also to place a floating image on the card. I have vellum, so that is what I floated the image on.

Day 3 background shift and floating image

I used two ink colors in the background: Lawn Fawn Peacock and Blue Jay. I made the template of the stamp by stamping it on vellum, so I could have a guide to shift my stamp. The butterfly is from a set that was created by Hero Arts along with Sizzix. The butterfly was stamped with Blue Jay ink, then Versamark and clear embossed. I used several dies on this card. First is the butterfly die that matches the stamped image, then I decided it needed a frame, so I used a Sizzix circle die and a scalloped circle die together. Since the butterfly is floating on vellum, the inside is covered with the same butterfly image to hide the adhesive. I did the same with the scallop frame.

I didn’t add a greeting. This way, it can be used for several occasions.

  1. I have been terribly neglectful and not checked the posts here for a while. Then I notice that there are some beauties and I’ve not commented. So apologies for that and here is a comment that is meant for all the posts I’ve missed. Firstly congrats on the MSC win – great news and perhaps a boost right now when you are low in spirits. Then all the cards shown here are wonderful designs. I love them all. The Double Gate fold is unique and clever, as is the other different fold card. This one that has the floating butterfly is extremely pretty with lovely colours and all the others are uniquely you. You make some lovely cards Lisa and glad you are trying new things too.
