Using Tiny Stamps to Create Backgrounds

Using Tiny Stamps to Create Backgrounds

Skipping around a bit…

Day 6 of the Holiday Card Workshop 2022 focused on using our small and tiny stamps. One of the lessons was called “Teeny Tiny Backgrounds” taught by Chari Moss. She created a tone on tone background using small stamps and then filling in the spaces with tiny stamps.

This first card was done as taught. I used Gina K Designs Cherry Red card stock and Cranberry Tart ink along with stamps from an unmarked set that had several adorable holiday characters (and coordinating dies). I also used tiny filler stamps from the GKD “Holiday Wreath Builder” stamp set and the “In A Word: Merry” stamp set from Winnie & Walter.

For the second card, I created a background with the same unmarked stamp set, but I created a colorful background without the filler stamps. Copic Markers used were R59, G29, Y17, 100, E21, B29, E31, E35, E37, N0 R83, C4, and YR04. The greeting is from the GKD “Holiday Wreath Builder” stamp set and Christmas Pine ink. I also used a die from the “Alison’s Ribbons” set from Cheery Lynn Designs.

Just for fun, I created a third note card featuring the Santa image!

Also used on these cards, greetings from the “Itty Bitty Holiday” stamp set from My Favorite Things, GKD Christmas Pine card stock, GKD Black Amalgam ink, Cuttlebug “Swiss Dots” embossing folder, Stampin’ Up “Subtle” embossing folder, Spellbinders circle dies, and a score board.

  1. Gorgeous backgrounds, beautifully colored images and card design. The reindeer is darling. The last note card with the Santa and the layering textures is wonderful.


  2. I’m with the others and think all of these are fantastic cards. I can’t pick one over the other as I really like them all. Beautiful designs and ideas shown here.
