Merry & Bright with Background Stamping

Hohoho! Happy holidays dear friends! It's Keeway here today to share one last holiday inspiration for your cardmaking needs.

I love working with small stamps to create self-stamped backgrounds. When you have multiple stamps illustrated by the same designer, everything would match like it was all part of the same set! I decided to work with the Beary Merry stamp set and Elfs and Their Shelf stamp set, both illustrated by our talented DT Elena.

I used various of the smaller stamps, rotating in random fashion, and stamp them on watercolor paper. I stamped the scribbled asterik stars in all the open space in between the images. And then colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Markers.

I finished the card with a large sentiment die, Merry and Bright. I absolutely love working with this sentiment die because the outline die provides the perfect, seamless background to help the words stand out boldly, even with a busy background.

Happy holidays!
