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.
