Creating a fun card background with Stampin’ Spots!

Hello, I hope you are well.

If you’re a regular reader of my blog then you may already know that I LOVE the Stampin’ Up! kits! They are a great introduction to card making but also a fabulous way to craft without having to think too much about it; just follow the instructions. I love to take a kit on holiday with me so that I can keep on crafting without having to travel with most of the contents of my craft room!

You can check out the current kits in my online shop by CLICKING HERE.

Once you’ve completed the projects in your kit you’ll normally have a stamp set and a mini ink pad, known as a Stampin’ Spot, left to keep in your crafting stash. Today’s card uses some of these left over supplies…

And here’s my quick video to show you how to make a card like this…

And here’s the card I made in the video beside my original version…

All I used was white card and in the video I show you how to get the effect of having a coloured card layer under your stamped one.

The stamp set I used for the sentiments comes from the Expressions In Color Paper Pumpkin kit so I’ve included that in my product list below. In the video I mentioned the Box of Hope Paper Pumpkin kit but unfortunately the launch of that in the UK has been delayed, due to shipping problems. Keep an eye out for it in my online shop soon.

You can purchase Stampin’ Spots as well as getting them in a kit so I’ve listed them below too.

Happy crafting,
