C040 Printer Paper Background

Prepare card by folding 101/4” x 7” mustard cardstock in half using a bone folder to make a nice crease. Cut Plum cardstock 43/4” x 61/2”. Stamp edges with leaves #23173.H page 193 using gold pigment ink. Mount to center of card and set aside.

To Make the Printer Paper Background:

Apply Plum dye ink to a scrap of printer paper by dragging and swiping the pad directly on to the paper. Do not cover the entire piece – leave some open areas.

Load stipple brush with Vivid ultramarine dye ink and pounce randomly on to some open white areas as well as over top of the plum ink – see sample picture on the right.

Tear down the right side of the paper creating a strip about 2” wide.

Load stipple brush with yellow dye ink and pounce randomly onto remaining white areas of the paper as well as over top of the plum and blue ink, allowing colors to blend. Stipple the torn edge then rub the torn edge against the yellow ink pad for accent. Over stamp with the crackle stamp #18082.I page 201 using gold pigment ink. Set aside.

Cut plum cardstock 3” x 5”. Stamp the right side with the Stampendous words #XXW001 using gold pigment ink. Mount the printer paper background to the left side and trim to fit. Set aside.

Stamp flower #14080.F page 68 on to a scrap of white cardstock using black Memories ink. Color with plum and mustard pencil crayons. Cut into a square and edge with yellow ink.

Cut a scrap of gold cardstock 11/2” square. Mount on an angel to the top left corner of the printer paper background. Glue flower on top. Mount on to 31/4” x 51/4” mustard cardstock and then on to 31/2 x 51/2” white cardstock. Mount these inner layers to the stamped leaf frame.

  1. What a great idea. I'm gonna have to try this one.

  2. Beautiful card Carole. With all the new techniques/products out there, it is nice to be reminded of some of the basics of stamping.
