Video: Background Stamp Ideas + CASE Study Challenge + Discount Code!

Hey! I have lots to share today. But the good news? I also have a 15% off discount code for you! Keep reading…

This is my last week as this month’s guest muse over at the CASE Study Challenge Blog. Each month they take a few older cards from a guest muse and use them as inspiration for new ideas. (Here are my previous cards: Card 1, Card 2 and Card 3.) A great site – check it out.

Today’s inspiration is from THIS card I created awhile back…

I have two cards – both showing fun ways to get more from your background stamps.

I adore the new Hero Arts Tiny Stars Background that I used on these cards. Good for so many occasions! And the Small Scallops Background is great for the fun strips.

Perfect Pearls gives some great shine to the new Hero Arts Silver Shadow Ink background. And the Typewriter Alphabet Letters are great for forming a greeting when you could use some round elements to break up a card design with lots of straight lines.

I am really loving designs with stamped strips. (Sorry I have been doing them a lot lately.) It is a great way to use any products you may have.

That Vertical Arrow Background is awesome. Simply awesome. I will be using it. A lot.

And the “oh what fun” image is from a holiday stamp set. Love using holidays stamps on non-holiday cards…

For all the supplies used for these cards, please just scroll down and check out the thumbnails.
