Creating Backgrounds With Clear Stamp, Foiled Papers, and Ghost Ink

Joy Clair Clear Stamps and Rinea

Hello every one… Today, I have 2 cards to share with you. Sometimes… I like to create my own backgrounds for cards and I am going to show you how easy to do this technique.

On both cards today, I created using Joy Clair Stamp Sets, Rinea Foiled Papers, and Rinea Ghost Ink. I like to create my own backgrounds for cards and I am going to show you how easy to do this technique. And stamp set I used on my cards are the 2 new released Color By Faith Bible Journaling Stamp Sets: Heartfelt Sympathy and Blessed Harvest. And… I am sharing full tutorial and steps how to create these cards at Joy Clair Blog today.

On my first card, I stamped one of the flowers from the Heartfelt Sympathy stamp set on the Gold side of the Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper using the Ghost Ink. I let it sit to dry for couple seconds and wiped the ink off the foiled paper using baby wipe. And then next, I cut the foiled paper using one of the Our Daily Bread Designs – Large Banner Dies Set and I added it on a white card using Art Glitter Adhesive Glue.

For the flower, I stamped the same flower image on a watercolor paper with VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad using Mini MISTI, dried the ink with craft heater and the I colored it with Leisure Arts Watercolor Pencils and waterbrush. I dried it again after watercoloring and then fussy cut it with micro-tip scissors.

For the sentiment, I did the same step how to create the background using the Blue side of the Sapphire/Gold Glossy Foiled Paper using the Ghost Ink. After that I trimmed the sentiment into a strip.

I added both flower and sentiment strip on the card with 3D fun foam and Art Glitter Adhesive Glue.

For the second card, I used the Blessed Harvest Stamp Set. Also, I did the same step with the first card to create the background. I used the Earth Tones Foiled Paper. After the stamping and wiping off step, I trimmed the foiled paper to fit slightly smaller than the A2 White Card. I added it on the card with Art Glitter Adhesive Glue.

And the sentiment on this card, I stamped it on a white cardstock with VersaFine Clair Acorn Ink Pad and then I cut it with one of the Our Daily Bread Designs – Large Banner Die Set. I wrapped around some of the May Arts Natural Burlap Twine Ribbon on the banner and then added on the card with 3D fun foam and Art Glitter Adhesive Glue.

I hope you all inspired today by these two cards… Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!!!
