For the first background I am using AG-04775 Filigree Leaves Background Stamp and CL-04790 Moroccan Lattice Background Stamp. For the ink I used Memento Pistachio and Olive Grove. I used the Pistachio ink on the AG-04775 Filigree Leaves Background Stamp and Olive Grove on the CL-04790 Moroccan Lattice Background Stamp.
and a closer look…..
Here is a quick tip from Heidi on choosing background stamps to layer:
- Pick a bold pattern/geometric pattern and a light and airy pattern (organic pattern) to get a strong design.
- Use a dark ink with a light ink for a strong contrast and a bolder pattern.
- For a more subtle pattern choose inks that are closer in tonal range.
Here you can see examples of the same two background stamps stamped in different color variations. Have fun experimenting.

For the second background I used CL-02027 Burlap Background Stamp, CL-02076 Floral Stitched Background Stamp. For the Burlap background I used Peanut Brittle ink. After inking the stamp I took a paper towel and removed some of the ink from the stamp. The image will still stamp but some spots will be lighter. For the Floral Stitched background I used Toffee Crunch ink.
Since both my patterns for this card are a dense design. I inked the burlap image and removed some of the ink before I stamped my paper. This gave me the variation I wanted so that the CL-02076 Floral Stitched Background Stamp became the stronger image.
Here is my finished card.
