Using shapes for backgrounds.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Have you ever really had a sentiment that you wanted to use but it didn’t seem like you could find anything to go with it?

Now usually, in the Stampin’ Up! world, this doesn’t happen since our stamp sets come in just that…sets. There are usually words and images that go together to make it easy to coordinate. But occasionally we get stumped and things just don’t seem to go together.

For this case specifically use shapes to create a background. If your words are more of a calligraphy font then go with something more round like a circle or oval shape. If your words are more sharp then go for a triangle, square, or rectangle.

After I glued all my circles on I embossed with the Pinewood Planks 3D Embossing Folder. This made it a more cohesive look. I then stamped my sentiment and added some confetti to it finishing it off by popping it up with Dimensionals.

Happy Crafting!

With inky fingers,

Joni 🙂
