Team Tuesdays with Susan: Repeat Stamping for Quick Backgrounds

Love all your cards but those florals are fantastic!

Now onto my card, I needed to make some thank you cards for my sister to send out. First thing I did was to get out my new MISTI - so love all the new features - and I repeatedly stamped the larger floral image from the ever classic and elegant Altenew Beautiful Day around the card front. For paper I used Neenah Solar White 80 lb card stock and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I also stamped the leaves and the smaller cluster of flowers. I had to mask my main images and I used full stick Post-It Notes and my regular sized MISTI for all of this stamping as well. I was going to color these images in with my go-to Copic Sketch Markers. However, I decided to pull out my Prismacolor Colored Pencils. Sadly, I did not write the colors down and I apologize for that. After coloring the main image, I splashed on some Sheer Shimmer Mist in Gold. I then trimmed the panel down to 4"x5.25" and mounted this with 3M Foam Tape onto a side folding notecard.

For the sentiment, I used thank you from WPlus9 Designs The Little Things. I love this set and its smaller sentiments. I used Neenah Solar White 110 lb card stock. I lined up the stamp in my MISTI along with the paper. I stamped this sentiment with Versafine Onyx Black ink. Using the accompanying die and my Gemini Junior Die Cutting machine and die the sentiment out. I popped the sentiment up on 3M Foam tape and adhered it to the focal image panel.

I really had a lot of fun and some relaxation using these two classic and timeless stamp sets. Pull out something you haven't used in awhile and create backgrounds. I often stamp these out ahead of time and color them in later. I leave the card black until I know what type of card I need. This keeps me ready for anything that comes my way or anything my dear sister would like.
