Hello!

For today’s card, I was thinking outside of the box when I decided to turn the StephieDoll4 stamp from The Stamps of Life into a ballerina. This stamp set comes with the Stephie doll stamp here, but also accessories for the beach. I turned her into a ballerina!

Dotted Flower Background. Die - The Stamps of Life

Ink-Blended and Stencil Background Techniques

Today I’m sharing two cards that I made using the dotted flower background die set from The Stamps of Life. I’m also sharing two techniques that you can use with your background dies. One technique is simply die cutting the background die and ink-blending the cardstock after it’s die cut to create the beautiful background on the left (above).  The second technique is using your background die as a stencil as shown in the card on the right (above).

To see a tutorial of how I made these cards, watch my YouTube video below. Links to the products are also listed below.
