August Spotlight Blog Hop

Sorry that this post is late. I have been sick and out of town. Here its is. Better late then never.

August blog is featuring background stamping. For my post, I took pattern paper and altered it with stamps to make my own paper. This is great for when you have paper that really doesn't work, you can make it work.
You should have came from Tracy's Blog Next on the Hop is Jen.

I took B&T paper from Zippidee and used a background stamp, then a flower stamp in circles of the paper. Then I added small stamped dots on the edge of the circle. Then I added a swirl the same color as the background.

For this card, I did a technique called Ghosting on the B&T paper. I stamped the damask pattern on a script paper with Versamark and embossed it with clear embossing powder. Then I inked the paper with Sunset and added some depth with Chocolate. Then I removied the embossing powder by ironing it off onto a scrap piece of paper.


  1. These are both great techniques, and your cards are beautiful!

  2. Cute cards! I am in love with the peacock stamp set, aren't you?!!!
