#786 -Background Making with Small Stamps

Hello and welcome!

I remember making backgrounds using small stamps quite some time ago. I haven’t attempted it quite some time now, so I thought of trying it again. Also, I wanted to make something with Concord & 9th Painted Thank You stamp. I love the font of the sentiment it carries, but I didn’t know what to accompany it with. I thought of making the background using the small images that the stamp comes with… but again, I felt that there weren’t enough images.

Fortunately, I remembered another stamp set, with similar small images – Simon Says Stamp Nutty Over You. I picked a few stamps from this set, which looked like they would be a good combination with the Concord & 9th stamps, to create the background.


The colors I chose are from this palette –

orange color


Stamping the entire background took me around half an hour. For the sentiment, I initially wanted to use vellum with silver embossed sentiment, but that wasn’t looking so good. So I chose to stamp using a dark grey ink, fussy cut it and foam mounted it. The stamped background itself is also mounted on grey card base. It looks a bit better now, I think. 🙂


Even embellishing – I tried to add pearls or sequins, but in the end, I ended up using nothing at all. I let the background do that talking this time! 🙂

  1. It’s a pretty background ! Half hour seems less thinking of all the time to adjust the stamps and and space around them.The finished card looks beautiful.

    • Thank you so much Pooja! I started from one corner, stamping around it, so spacing wasn’t a problem. And I am just glad to have used those small stamps! 😄
