Hello everyone, This is Gloria! I'm so excited and happy to be a guest designer for Throwback Thursday. I want to share with you three stamped background cards.

I was inspired by the unique and gorgeous card designer Shirley Bampton. I was inspired by her funky and modern card and decided to make my own background by stamping. 

Here is the inspired card. The specific card I selected that is one of her create for Spotlight project. You can see detail here.

The Throwback Card

Ready to see how Shirley Bampton inspired me?

Project #1

I stamped the card front all over with a stamp from the Art Marks 2 clear stamp set and London fog Memento ink. I used Page from my laptop to open and resize the Framed Blooms #1 digital stamps digital stamp file. I edited and printed the images.

Project #2

I stamped the card front all over with a stamp from the Art Marks 2 clear stamp set and four colors Distress inks. For the sentiment, I die cut the sentiment twice on the brown card stock, and adhere them with glue pen.
