Hi Everyone! It's Lindsay A from the design team here with you today, sharing another video tutorial! I don't think it's any secret that I LOVE Joy Clair Stamps background stamps. They are great to use for stamping backgrounds, obviously, but they are wonderful to use for so many techniques! If you want to see how I used the fantastic Falling Leaves stamp set to create a bright and colorful emboss resist background, you can watch the entire process in the video tutorial down below!
I actually started this card by coloring an image from the Turkey Talk stamp set for another card I thought I was going to make. That card really didn't turn out, but I did keep the colored image, because I knew I wanted to use it. It was just too cute not to! So I slipped it into the stamp set's packaging to keep track of it and then when I was creating the background for today's card I knew it was perfect for the image I had previously colored! So hang onto those pieces that don't work out the first time! You never know when they will come in handy!
The background is super simple and easy to create. I used my MISTI for stamping today and after prepping my white cardstock, I stamped the background with Versamark Ink. Then I added white embossing powder and heat set the entire thing. It's going to be hard to see, but I promise it's all worth it in the end! I then used a few ink pads and my blending tool to blend over the entire background. When adding the color onto the cardstock, anywhere the embossing powder is, it will resist the color and stay white! You are left with a gorgeous and vibrant background with stark white stamping!
With my background done, I quickly finished off the outside of the card. Be sure to watch the full video tutorial for all the details! Finally, I stamped the inside of my card to decorate it as well!
I hope you all enjoyed today's simple video tutorial! If you are interested in the stamp sets I used on my card today, you will find them all listed and linked down below! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
