Background Stamps 4 Ways: Ink Blot Shop New Release

Hello Crafters!

I have a couple of different cards for you to today featuring lots of new products from Ink Blot Shop. Added bonus if you spend $50 in the store you get a free mini set which I also used today! 


Sometimes I struggle with using background stamps even though I love them. I thought I might not be the only one so I used three different ones and then made my own. Just in case you love the idea but don't currently own any background stamps. It's super easy :) 


I started with a simple distress ink gradient background. I wanted something bright and fun to go with my zebra stripe to change it up a little. When you opt for a gradient make sure you choose colors that blend well together. If you love complimentary colors, like purple and yellow, just grab a buffer color to go in between them, like pink, so you don't get brown! I used pink and orange in this card. This card features that free stamp I was talking about. It's super cute!


I used distress inks here too but I combined them with white embossing and water. Using distress inks as a watercolor can give really soft color. This is a quick and easy way to get an ombre background. Best thing is you can use any color or use all the colors and make a card set for a friend!


For this card I switched over to my Zig Clean Color Markers because I love how bright they are! I opted to do a diagonal color application to add to the interest. This is another emboss resist background but adding in multiple colors gives it a completely different look. I trimmed out the bottom of the design to give a unique look to the card.  


Here's where I created my own. I'm head over heels for the new Skyline Borders set and I know I'll be using it to make bunches of scene cards but I had to make this Rainbow Bright card right out of the gate! I love the swirls and stars. It's so fun. I stamped it once and then masked it to stamp it again all the way up the card. Really easy!

You can see all the cards in the video below. 


Thanks so much for stopping by!
I'll be back soon :)
