Lacey Squares-making your own background paper
Hello and Happy New Year! My name is Janine Blackwelder and this is my first post as a new design team member for the Stamping Scrapping Design Team.
I created a card using the new Lacey Squares and Beaded Ovals stamp sets, Spellbinders die templates and a border punch.
I stamped the two design elements from the Lacey Squares on to the base of my card by positioning them on one stamp block then repeatedly stamping across and above until covered the card front. Below you will see photos of work in progress as I design. I work it out on paper before I dive into creating. This way I see what will work and what won't.
Next, stamp with ink to see placement of images.
Re-ink and repeat
Re-ink and repeat. Do you see the pattern growing and coming to life?
I completed the card by stamping one of the ovals from the Beaded Ovals set and die cut it with S4-110 Classic Ovals LG die template #3 (with #1 being the smallest) then finished with the sentiment from the Lacey Circles. I inked the edges of my card then embellished it with a border punch and ribbon.
