So, I wanted to try a different idea for stamping where I did a background with random stamping and thought the new Petite Petals would be a fun stamp set to do it with.
I’ll admit, I completely did it WRONG but I think I covered up my oops well enough… what do you think?
So, the way this card was a mistake was that the way you’re SUPPOSED to do this technique is:
- Cut a piece of white cardstock smaller than your card base
- Hold your smaller piece of cardstock down on your card base and random stamp your images all over the card base AND the smaller piece of cardstock so that some images are stamped across BOTH pieces of paper.
- Adhere your smaller piece of cardstock to a slightly larger piece of cardstock for a mat to break up the stamped images.
Here is how I stamped it:
- Random stamp your cardbase with lots of cute images
- Cut your smaller piece of cardstock
- Hold your smaller piece of cardstock over the stamped cardbase and realize that some of the images are supposed to overlap
- Grab a scrap piece of paper and eyeball stamping the flowers on the smaller piece of cardstock so they look like they were stamped overlapping both pieces of paper.
- Adhere your smaller piece of cardstock to a mat and call it good enough!
See, it was pretty close for eyeballing, huh?
Then I wanted to add a few more details and started adding bits and pieces.
I started with the sentiment (I LOVE this phrase from the Perfect Pennants stamp set) and then matted it with some extra punches from the decorative label punch.
Then I needed a little more, so I added some paper piercing around the inside of the matted cardstock and a bit of crochet ribbon to add a vintage touch.
And next time… I’ll actually stamp it the right way and it will go sooooo much faster!
