My Background!!

I am so excited! I have been experimenting with making my own backgrounds lately. I LOVE the way this one turned out. You would never believe that I only used 2 pieces of cardstock for this layout. I just had to share this creation with you.


Stamps- "Plenty of Paisley" by The Paper Studio, "two scoops/swirlie" by Basic Grey

Inks- Cranberry and Barn Red by CTMH


White gross grain ribbon

White cardstock (background, mat and embellishments) and red cardstock scrap for mat

font- Century on Microsoft Powerpoint

I stamped the paisley and the flower in Cranberry all over my white paper. Then, I stamped the swirl in the barn red. Afterwards, I sponged cranberry all over. The embellishments were made using this same technique. I stamped them on white cardstock scraps, sponged and cut. Woo Hoo! Sometimes I like the way my creations turn out!


  1. hey! what are you doing crafing without me!? I think the paper turned out great

  2. I love hearing about and seeing your creations! Let me know how you are doing. Love Auntie Cindy
