Amber Kroening :: 2 Cute Cards

Hey guys!  Amber here, from Bella Rose Cards.  One of my favorite ways to use my stamps is to create backgrounds.  It's fool proof and it lets your images take center stage.  To create this first card I used Faceless Fruit, Fruit Sentiments Two, & Erkle and Merkle Face Assortment. I simply stamped the fruit, colored them with Copics, and adhered onto a black card base.  I finished it off with a sentiment strip in the corner.



The only stamp set I used on this card was Eye Sentiments.  I stamped the eye until my entire card was covered.  I like to start in the center and work my way out.  Then I colored my eyes with Copic markers.  I stamped my sentiment on a strip of white cardstock, and used a heart punch to create a banner. I did the same thing with the orange strip, and then attached it to my card with foam adhesive. 


Fun right?  I hope I helped give you some ideas on how to use your stamps to create backgrounds  Thanks for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!
