Hi, there friends! Today I have a very fun and unique way to create your own background using very BASIC supplies and some amazing background stamps from Unity. This DIY cardmaking technique is a brilliant way to extend the use of any background stamp.
Enough telling you about it, let me show how to make this.
The color inspiration is very basic, simple rainbow hues minus the purple. For the stamp, I am using Unity Stamp Co. Baby Boy Plaid.
To begin, I have my card panel precut from Neenah 110lb cardstock. Next using 5 colors of distress oxydes and a round brush I blended circular ink circles. I got about 3 to fit on each row.
I repeated this process all the way down until I covered the entire card base. Then, I splattered water on the entire thing so it reacts with the Distress Oxydes. Allow time to dry before moving on to the next step.
Now we will heat emboss the BABY BOY PLAID stamp set with white embossing powder, heat set with your heat gun. While that cools off, on a piece of Black cardstock stamp and heat emboss the “YOU can do it ” from the THANKFUL & GRATEFUL FALL.
Then hand cut the sentiment around the edges. Once that is done, with foam adhesive place the sentiment over the plaid background. Finish up with some clear embellishments or sequins.
I have a full tutorial video showing you the entire process on this awesome DIY background.
Thanks for joining me today!
