Hi All, Welcome to today’s blog post. Today, I will show you how The Background Lines stampset can help you accentuate bold or subtle results for your cards. All 3 cards below I have used the same bold stripe by repeat stamping however with different colours they can be as bold as you like or as subtle as you like.

I prefer to use all pigment inks for the bold stripes as not only is this is a solid stampset which will provide really good coverage when used with pigment ink but I have also added a clear embossing powder which I heat embossed to add a sheen to the stripes. Unfortunately the photo’s doesn’t pick up on this detail.

This 1st card above I have used a bright red pigment ink to create a contrasting background to the pretty water coloured cherry blossomsΒ . I have used my Zig Clean and Clear markers to colour the Cherry Blossoms stampset on all 3 cards.Β Β I have added some burlap & chevron ribbon along with some clear droplets to embellish the cards.

The 2nd card I have used a subtle pink ink as I felt that I didn’t want to take any focus of the bright beautiful pink cherry blossoms.

Because I didn’t add too much colour to the yellow cherry blossoms the ink I used for this card for the stripes was a muted gold metallic pigment ink. The gold ink chosen added a lovely shimmer and shine to the card.

I hope you liked today’s creations and bring out a well loved staple stampset such as the stripes.

    What a beautiful collection of cards. Love how you have used the coloured stripes along the base of the card and the contrast works perfectly.
