Hi there stampers! Today we have lots of wonderful projects to show you using the Knitting Background Stamp!
This stamp is a fabulous companion to the Hand Knitted Stamp Set but can also be used on it’s own using lots of different techniques. Let’s take a look at a some ideas:
Here’s a fabulous idea from Godelieve showing how you can stamp the Knitting Background with Watering Can Archival ink and colour the image with Distress Markers to create images and patterns! For this first card Godelieve has created a Christmas Tree set.
Here is another variation using the same method as the first card. To read more details on how they were created, please visit Godelieve’s blog here.
This is another card where Godelieve has coloured the image with Distress Markers, this time using warm tones to create a warm looking knitted jumper! It is such an effective technique!! See more about this card here.
For this card, Godelieve has created a pattern like you would see on a knitted jumper, using only black and white. You can read more about this card here.
Anneke has created a colourful patchwork by stamping the Knitting Background Stamp in different coloured inks, then punching them out with a square punch and adhering them onto a card front. What a great way to create a colourful background! Read more about this card on Anneke’s blog here.
This is a beautiful card to show how you can create a tone on tone stamping effect using similar ink colours to your background. Anneke first started with a painted background and stamped over the top with a slightly darker ink. It creates a subtle background pattern! Read more here.
If you’d to make some crafty themed Christmas cards, here’s a fabulous idea from Anneke! The Knitting Background was stamped in Carnation Red Archival Ink and the sentiment from the Yuletide Greetings Stamp Set
was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink over the top. A tree was created using red fluffy twine which adds lots of texture! To read more about how this card was made, visit Anneke’s blog here.
Connie has created a fun set of knitted mittens using the Knitting Background Stamp! How fun are these!!
For this card, Connie has created a camp-themed background using Distress Oxide Inks, then stamped the Knitting Background over the top. Connie has also created little balls of wool by stamping the ball of wool stamp and wrapping matching real wool around the stamped image. A clever way to add more texture to your card!

Here’s another card where the background was created with Distress Oxide Inks and the Knitting Background was stamped over the top, this time with Watering Can Archival Ink. This card by Godelieve also uses a sentiment from the Hand Knitted Stamp Set and a Tim Holtz Paperdoll. You can read all the step by step instructions on Godelieve's blog here.
