Make your own abstract background with rubber bands

Hello everyone.

Today I’d like to share a fun technique with you… stamping with rubber bands! It’s such a easy way to create abstract backgrounds, as an alternative to using designer series paper.

I’ve used the new Create With Friends stamp set and some of the colours from the Brights collection to make this card…

I had so much fun with this card that I recorded a video as an excuse to make another one with different colours – you can check it out by clicking on the image below…

And here’s the card I made in the video…

I forgot to add some of the Playing With Patterns resin dots to my card during the video but at least I remembered before I took the photographs!

Although these are Purple Posy (now retired) they do fit in well with the pink and purples I used.

My card base measures 21 x 14.5 cm, scored and folded on the long side at 10.5 cm. My stamped layer and insert are Basic White card each measuring 10 x 14 cm. I simply trimmed the layers for the sentiments to fit the stamps and die cut I used.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these cards and will give this fun technique a try.

I’ve listed the Stampin’ Up! products I used in my video below. I used 3 different sized blocks but that was just to illustrate that any kind of block will do the job just fine.
