Backgrounds in BLOOM: Petals and Heathers

April 30, 2014

Join us all this week as we explore techniques and card designs featuring our newest background stamps and Creative Dies. From miniature cards to clean and simple stamping, our designers will have you itching to use our newest stamps in new, fun ways!


Check it out! Therese has used the same Creative Die as Peet did yesterday (51-042 Petals), only Therese has embossed it then applied a spritz of color.  Same die… totally different look!


Download complete project supplies and instructions by clicking HERE.

And what’s that you say? You’d like more backgrounds in bloom?  Jill has created a pair of mini-cards using our 4 x 4 inch Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-284 Heathers.



Watch directly on YouTube HERE.


Will April showers bring MAY background flowers? We’ll find out tomorrow…

    What a great technique. I don’t see a lot of tutorials and videos with Pan Pastels and I’m so glad you posted this one. Just beautiful Thank!

    Love this technique using Pan Pastels – it is incredibly pretty. I am curious – I only have a few colours of Pan Pastels, but whenever I use them I feel that I should be sealing the colour. Do you use a sealant, or in your experience, do you find they are stable without doing this?

      Thanks for watching! I use krylon matte fixative spray to seal mine. Happy stamping!

    Delightful seeing how those sequins in Therese’s card really pick up firstly the yellow-bold of the sunflower & then the pinkish background. The green striped twine echoes the stem beautifully too.
    Jill’s little notecards are delightful – so much detail making each one quite special & individual. The way the ribbon is bound with the twine & the pearl added gives such a classy finish.
