Background Technique Using Image Stamps

Hello friends & welcome to So Suzy Stamps inspiration post.
I am sharing a card today with a technique to use your image stamps to create fabulous backgrounds.
Let's have a look at the finished card first before moving on to the tutorial...
It is a very simple technique which will help you to use your stamps in new ways...
  • I started with my Whimsy Tree stamp to create my background. I stamped it with versamark ink several times on my white cardstock & rotated it every time before stamping. 
  • Then I heat embossed it using Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.
  • I then trimmed down this cardstock.

  • Next I used Walnut Stain distress ink & applied directly to the cardstock. The wet ink made the smooth cardstock a little bumpy giving it a little texture.

  • I trimmed it again & glued it down to my card front. I also made a matching thin border by heat embossing a strip of cardstock with Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.

  • The last step was to add my sentiment to the card. I used my brand new Mini MISTI to position Win Your Battles stamp perfectly on my card. I used Walnut Stain distress ink to stamp my sentiment so that it matches the background.
Here is a close up of the background... I love how the metallic embossing gives it such a royal look...
Hope you enjoyed the tutorial & will give it a try.
The supplies are listed below...

Faux Brush Lettering

Hello Friends...
Welcome to Inspired by Stamping inspiration post…
Hope you all are  doing well...
Today I am sharing a technique called Faux Brush Lettering with the help of Just For You stamp set from our newest release.

Start by choosing a sentiment that has brush lettering font.
I used the Just For You stamp because it has big & bold sentiment perfect for trying out this new (for me) technique...
I decided to use blues & greens for my sentiment so I stamped the sentiment with Tumbled Glass Distress ink on a piece of watercolor cardstock. You can use any light shade of ink you have which matches the final colors that you want to use. I feel distress inks are best for this technique because of their water reactive property.

Next take a brush & start painting over the stamped sentiment. Keep the start of the stroke dark and let the ink fade towards the end of the stroke. I have used 2 colors to add a little more interest as I planned on keeping the card simple.
To assemble the card I trimmed the sentiment panel & mounted it on slightly larger black cardstock before gluing it down to the card base. 
I took the Here's a hug from the same stamp set & heat embossed it on black cardstock with white embossing powder. Cut it into a banner & adhered it on the card.

Finally I added 2 tiny hearts made with Nuvo Crystal Drops (Green Apple).

I hope you like my card & give this fun technique a try...
Thank you so much for visiting today...

Vintage Ladies

Hello friends ...
 Welcome to  So Suzy Stamps inspiration post
I am here to share a new card I made for So Suzy Stamps  with Vintage Ladies stamp & I have paired it with Be sentiment...  
Isn't this stamp gorgeous.... & I think the Be sentiment is perfect fit for Vintage Ladies stamp.

To make my card I started with Heat embossing my Vintage Ladies image with black embosssing powder & then inking the background with Distress inks & stencil.
This is how it looked after the above steps...
Then I inked the inside of my card front in the same way & stamped the Be sentiment with black ink in the center.
To finis my card I die cut a black border & glued it on the top & bottom of my image.


I hope you like my card & thank you for visiting today  :)
