Triangles Background Stamp - Project Ideas

Darkroom Door - Friday, May 17, 2013

Hi everyone! Today we are sharing project ideas using the Triangles Background Stamp!


First up, a gorgeous Baby set of wrapping paper and card by Sephi:


Method - wrapping paper

1. Stamp a large sheet of brown paper with the triangles background stamp. Use three shades of ink and stamp in a block pattern. Repeat until the paper is covered. Roll and tie with string.

Method - card

1. Stamp kraft card with the triangles background stamp using white ink.
2. Attach a Hello Baby photochip to the stamped card and embellish it with a ribbon bow.
3. Cut triangles from scraps of patterned paper and adhere them across the photochip. Stitch buttons to the bunting for added interest.
4. Cut along one edge of cream card with decorative scissors. Affix behind the kraft card and attach the whole thing to a blue base.
5. Finish with a Hello Baby wordstrip.


Layout by Connie:

Details: When I went to stamp on the pattern paper I rolled the stamp,trying not to get those sharp edges.  I achieved that in some places andnot in other places:):)
I also used the Everyday Life Collection and the Big Numbers Collection.  I love how these stamps look fabulous with each other.  So easy to mix it up.


Art Journal page by Marjie:


Details: I used the Triangles Background stamp along with some favorite stencils and a few older stamps. This background stamp is quite large (6" wide) and would make a bold background stamped repeatedly in its entirety:

Or you can roll the Triangles Background and use small sections of it, getting just a few triangles here and there (as I did here, rolling it without a mount):


I used Gel Medium through a large triangle stencil as a base and then stamped the smaller triangles on top of it. I used Ranger's Distress Markers to color in some of the triangles and all of the letters.


A gorgeous card by Melissa:


Details: One of my favorite techniques to use on background stamps is embossing.  Sometimes background stamps can get lost on the card, but by embossing your background images, it helps these wonderful stamps come to life and can create a focal point such as on my card today using the new Triangles Background Stamp.


I first stamped my background using Versamark Watermark ink and then embossed the background image using three different colors, silver, Zing Leaf, and Zing Blush.  I love the glossy texture it adds.  I then cut the flowers from a Viva La Flora Photochip and adhered them to the card front followed by my sentiment cut from the Bright Blossoms Wordstrip.


A quick and easy card to put together for someone special.

Thanks for visiting! We all hope you enjoyed our ideas today!
