One Background, Two Cards Featuring Quilted Background Stamp With Carissa Wiley

Today I'm going to show you how I created two cards with one completed background, featuring the new Quilted Background stamp from Neat & Tangled.  This fun, geometric background is great for creating funky cards, like the 80's inspired cards I'm creating today.


I stamped and colored the Quilted Background just once on some heavyweight weight card stock, in a Copic friendly ink.  I then colored it with some bright colors.  The 80's called, they want their colors back.  I was then able to cut that completed background in to several parts, and create a couple of cards.


I also used the new Barnyard Buddies stamps and dies.  I masked the portion of the banner sentiment stamp prior to inking it to create a wavy banner sentiment that just says "It's Your Birthday".


I'll walk you through the creation of both of these quick and easy cards in today's video tutorial.  Be sure to check it out.  And if you enjoy this video, be sure to like it and subscribe to the Neat & Tangled YouTube channel so you don't miss any of their card making video tutorials.


Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed these 80's inspired birthday cards.  Until next time, I hope you have a fabulous day!


XOXO
Carissa

Adding Stitching To Stamped Images with Neat & Tangled Barnyard Buddies

I love the beautiful detail of adding stitching on stamped images and I'm so inspired by the stitching of other makers so I've been practicing! Today I've got a few of my stitching tips to share with you and a little video!

Here are a few of my tips for stitching...
  • Use heavyweight cardstock to help prevent warping or tearing when you are stitching.
  • No-line coloring is a great way to add color before stitching and keep stitched lines from competing with the stamped lines.
  • Choose alcohol-based coloring mediums like Copic markers over water-based mediums to avoid smearing images while stitching.
  • Use Copic markers to color embroidery thread to match project perfectly!
  • Pre-punch holes for stitching with a craft pick.

Thanks for stopping by!
