Watch Along Wednesday – Background Layering Stamps

Crafter's Companion – 22/05/19

Welcome back to another Watch Along Wednesday! This week’s video is all about the unbelievably gorgeous Background Layering Stamps, so if you’ve been looking for a way to jazz up your papercraft projects, these stamps are the way to go. They’re especially amazing if you’ve been looking to bring a bit more nature into your papercrafting.

Take a look at the video below to see David use the Crocus Collection Background Layering Stamp to create a cheerful, sunshine yellow easel card, with extra pops of blue and a Best Wishes sentiment. It truly is beautiful and it’s so fascinating to watch the crocus image come to life! As always, make sure you let us know what you think of it using the #WatchAlongWed hashtag on social media!

Each design features a set of three acrylic stamps that work together to produce an incredible background with an almost 3D-like effect. You can either use these stamps in numerical order to produce images with amazing dimensions, or you can mix and match the stamps for a more abstract approach.

These stamps are made from the highest quality clear acrylic, which means that you can see straight through the stamp to line up the image accurately. Just adhere each stamp to an acrylic block or use a Stamping Platform and stamp away, either following the numbers printed in the corners or mixing and matching!

Try using soft colours for a more subtle background or pair these stamps up with vivid inks for a punchy look. They’re perfect for cardmaking, scrapbooking and so much more, so they’re perfect for your papercrafting stash!
