New stamp set – showcase and give-away: Backgrounds

It’s the 3rd day here at CHA and we are soo busy showing off our new stamp sets. I hope you have been following us on Facebook to see what is going on at our booth (#4227, Kentia Hall).

Today we are featuring one of our new stamp sets: Backgrounds

This set features 2 big background stamps, a bubble wrap and a corrugated cardboard style. These stamps are great for creating either full backgrounds or covering only part of your project.

Here is Maryfrances’ take on the bubble wrap:

And this is what Jill has done: she used the “bubble wrap” stamp from the Backgrounds stamp set to create a rub-on effect.  First she stamped the image with Close To My Heart {white} ink and waited for it to dry.  She then used CTMH black archival ink and applied the same image to my layout, slightly off-centering it on the stamped image in white.  If you look closely, you can see a fine bit of white peeking from underneath the black stamped image.  The images look crisp & clean and feel as smooth as an expensive rub-on.

To win our new little stamp set “Mini Pennants”, you need to leave a comment telling us what technique you would use with this set. Please don’t forget your name and location and to check in on Friday, when we announce a winner :)

Happy Stamping and good luck!

  11. Sandra ltb says:

    I would emboss them with clear embossing powder and then use different colored distress inks to color the background.
    thanks for the inspiration!
