Background stamps

I'm still loving the online card class that I've been taking. 
I've done a couple more backgrounds and made them into cards. I feel like a bit of an imposter putting up cards that I've pretty much copied from the instructions, but I like them anyway, and it's good to share with others in the class, so here goes!

I LOVE this first card, courtesy of Laura Sterckx. I will definitely be playing with this idea some more.

This next card takes me back to the types of cards that I used to make years ago when I first started. I love cutting tiles and replacing them, but I haven't done one for ages. I love it!

I had a play with the black paper card too. I just scaped into the supply requirements, owning exactly two colours of perfect pearls. I'm not so sure about this one. My personal style is a bit brighter, I think, but it was a great learning experience, and it's something I could see myself using as part of a card later on, but not as a full card.
Finally I had a little play myself with another background stamp that I own ( the count is up to four now!)
First I used perfect pearls on white card stock, then embossed in clear, with a touch of sparkle. Lastly, I added mustard seed distress ink with a blending tool, to brighten the whole card.


  1. Just stopping in from OCC! I really like your cards! The pink is my favorite and I LOVE the sequins you used!

  2. I love those square sequins. I live in a tiny country town and I picked them up on clearance. I have no idea how old they were, but I love them!
