Badges & Banners | #WWYS120

Welcome to this weeks challenge at What Will You Stamp? This week the set we are playing with Badges and Banners

I decided to go for something a bit different and make a masculine themed card - I always find them more challenging to make, here is what I came up with:


The sentiment says it all, not too over the top, just nice for a laid back male celebrating with a beer! And what man doesn't like a badge, I added the little tails with 1/2" Finely Woven Ribbon.

The background isn't DSP, it's the new Marbled background stamp - it reminds me of shaving cream, which is what lead me to a masculine card. I sponged a combination of Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide and Basic Black then stamped, the hardest thing was managing the stamp with my tiny hands!

  2. This one's a pearler Sue! And not a skerrick of pink in sight!!! I've had my eye on a few of the new background stamps in the new catty, including this one. I think you've just convinced me to put it on my next order!

  3. Beautiful card! Love the colors on the BG stamp. Sharing a tip: I taught my customers with hand issues (either arthritic or too small) to use the BG stamps flat on the table. Lay your paper on top of the face up stamp, lay scrap paper over and either press with hand or brayer to get a good imprint. We do partial prints this way too. Works very well.

    1. I've used my woodmount background as you have described above, it got clear mount this time to see what it would be like - I agree small or arthritic hands would benefit from not trying to hold the large background stamping blocks

  4. I absolutely love that background and the color combo you chose! I totally thought you had done the shaving cream technique on this card and of course now I NEED this stamp! :)

  6. Sue I love this. Took me a few looks and a read to work out what you had done with the background. Love the idea of sponging onto the background stamp. Very cool
