Background Techniques for Cards

Hello Friends 

Im bringing more inspirations using Mudra's products for this brand new month. 


Cheers - Masculine Birthday Card - Random stamping background



April is considered the Beer month in USA and hence I decided to create something for the Beer lovers !
  • For this card I decided to create my own background paper by randomly stamping the beer image from "Cheers" stamp set  onto a piece of white cardstock and leaving it uncoloured. 
  • Here's a little behind the scenes on how my cards come together when I'm creating a stamped background. I usually practice stamping the design several times until I get the look I'm going for or a design that pleases my eye. Typically, I try to avoid stamping the same image next to itself. I also try not to stamp images in straight lines to help give the design a more random and free flowing feel. 
  • After I finished creating my background, I cut a rectangle shape from black cardstock and stamped the sentiment onto it using Versamark Watermark Ink. I then heat embossed it with white embossing powder and added a mini wordings to follow . All the sentiment are from the Cheers stamp set .
  • I have added one beer stamped, coloured and fussy cut over the banner to complete the card .

Thinking of you - Watercolour background with shadow stamping 


  • I have started with a A2 sized teal card base on which I have adhered the layers.
  • I have created second Card background on a watercolour panel with watercolours - yellow and pink giving me this lovely orange sheen.
  • Then I have randomly stamped flowers with black ink from a set of stamps "Persian Elements".
  • I have added Leaves from Leafy Swirls chipzeb as it is on the card 
  • The sentiment is from "purely sentiments " stamp set .
  • To complete the card I have added pearls in teal to match the card base .



Fairytale tri fold card 


I have created a fairyland with pattern papers and chipzebs here .

  • This is a 4"x4" Tri Fold card 
  • For the cover I have used Tag chipzeb ,Fairy Tales chipzebs  and Words along with Beary Hugs pattern paper.
  • The  Fairy Tales chipzebs  is coloured and adhered here with double sized glue foam to create dimension.






That's all from me today , hope to have inspired you all to try these stuffs !
