Create A Smile Stamps – Cut That Background Stamp Apart!

Ok… Kidding! I didn’t actually cut the background stamp apart 😉 Hope I didn’t scare you. But read on and see what I did 🙂 I hope it will inspire you to look at your background stamps and find more ways to use it. I was inspired by my teammate, Anja Curvers’s card here

You know how I like to “stretch” my stamps right? I decided to find a different way to use the Letters  background stamp.

So firstly, I stamped the entire background using Memento Tuxedo Black ink (because I will be using Copic Markers) on just some left over white pieces of paper I have. 
Next, I coloured all the non-solid envelopes using my copic markers. I wasn’t being too careful to blend or have a gradient of dark to light colour because it’s such a small area.  After I’m done colouring, I did it crazy (but worth it) thing! Hehe. I cut all the envelopes out so that I could stick them one my card. 
Before I stick the envelopes, I did stamp 1/3 of the stamp on the bottom part of my card base. I did this so that I could have a starting point of where I will stick the cut out envelopes. Some are flat and some are on dimensional adhesive.

I had to use this adorable bear from the Poppin’ Over set and it looks like it’s coming out of the pile of envelopes 🙂 Added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins and that’s it!
I don’t know about you but I love to keep gold embellishments in hand like sequins, stickles, embossing powders, stickers, etc. I find that they go well with any colour and they are amazing at brightening up your card 🙂
