Hello everyone, happy Thursday!!!

 I am so happy to make cards as a guest designers for Throwback Thursday! I made three cards using stamping background. 

I inspired talented card designer KarolaI was inspired by her background stamping. I made a background using the same stamp or stamp set such as the main image.

Here is the inspired card. The specific card I've selected is one of she created for Inspiration project. You can see detail here.

The Throwback card

Ready to see how Karola inspired me?

Project 1

I cut the kraft card stock 4"x5.25"size and stamped the Christmas ornaments using Christmas baubles stamp and London Fog Memento ink. I stamped an ornament on a white card stock and colored it with Copic markers. I cut it and added glossy accents. After being completely dry, I connected the owner with a silver string.


Glossy Accents
Memento London Fog ink
Memento Tuxedo Black ink
Vesramark watermark stamp pad
Ranger white embossing powder

Project 2

I prepared a kraft card stock in the same way as the first card, and I stamped the background four times using a stamp platform to match the four corners. I used Copic markers to color the Carnations and I fussy cut them with my Cutter Bee scissors. I attached the cut carnations on the background.

Project 3

I stamped the blue flowers from Blossom Sprays #4 stamp on a white card stock and I colored it blue and green Copic markers. In the process of cutting, I cut out the surrounding backgrounds and cut only the flower part. I stamped the sentiment from So loved stamp set on a white card stock.

I think the STAMPlorations stamps are beautiful and go well with both the background design and the main design. It was so much fun to create cards inspired by Karola. Thanks to Karola for great inspiring me.
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!

  3. Way back when I started stamping, I loved using the focal image for the background. Haven't seen that done in a long time, but you've shown it's still a great design! Beautiful cards!
