Stretch Your Stamps - Day 1 (Background Stamps)

Love online classes and this one is perfect for hot summer afternoons. Learning to use all your stamps 4-5 different ways should get the creative juices flowing!
First day focuses on background stamps. I used Impression Obsession's "Circle Fusion 1" for the background on both. The card background was colored with Stampin Up markers although I want to try making my own multicolor stamp pad later. Paper is Stampin Up Rich Razzleberry, Lucky Limeade, Melon Mambo and Bermuda Bay. Sentiment is from a My Favorite Things set. The other "sample" was done with Tim Holtz Distress Inks on a craft sheet, misted with water and them stamped. Creates a darker image than the colors used (spring, summer).


  1. Hi Caro,
    I saw your card in the Gallery and wanted to be sure to stop by and say hi!! I am also taking this class and have LOVED all the others so much! It's always nice to see you, Dixie and some of the other OWH gals in the class and I love learning all kinds of new tips and hints from Jennifer and Kristina!!

    Your Impression Obsession Stamp worked perfectly and it's great because you already had it in your STASH!!

    See you again tomorrow -- Happy Stamping!


  2. Really like your color choices. Nice job.

  3. Beautiful cards.
    I was talking to my daughter earlier today, and said how cool it would be if there was a way to see if any of the lady's in class would like to send homework cards to OWH. As a shipper for OWH,maybe you could find a way to see if any of our classmates, not yet involved in OWH, would like to send the cards they make to you. I don't know, just a thought I had earlier today, than saw your blog. Maybe crazy idea?

    Anyway, lovely cards, thanks for sharing. It's going to be another great class.
