Creating a Background Using a Sentiment Stamp

Happy Monday everyone!! Nora here from A Creative Touch. It has been a long time since I have created a card. I needed a challenge so I decided to create a background with just one sentiment stamp from the Love Notes stamp set.

I used hugs and kisses symbols from the stamp set and stamped them randomly in different color reds across a white cardstock background.  

Next I die cut the panel and adhered it on an angle to an A2, top folding card base. I adhered the negative "frame" that I usually would throw out over the top of the angled panel.

I then die cut the "happy" using the Happy Hanukkah Fri-dies out of red cardstock and adhered it to the card front. 

Using the Love Notes stamp set again, I stamped the sentiment with black dye ink onto a white cardstock strip. I adhered the strip onto the card front using foam adhesive.

My last step was to adhere Fun-Fetti Fri-Die hearts that I had die cut in pink and red under and over the sentiment. I used a clear shimmer pen to give the little hearts some sparkle and then covered them with Glossy Accents. 

I hope this card inspires you to take a look at your sentiment stamps and create a fun background of your own. Please leave a link because I would love to see what you made.
