Crafty with Caly: Painted Flowers Background

Hi friends! Happy Wednesday! Please join me in welcoming special guest Caly Person on our blog today! Read on to learn more about this pretty card in our Crafty with Caly blog series and enjoy!

Hi, Friends! It’s Caly with you today and I’m sharing a die-cut background that I created using stamped images from the Painted Flowers set.

The stamps in this set are not created for layering, so to add shading, I used finger daubers to add darker shades of ink to do some repeat-stamping to create the darker areas on my images.

Be sure to check out my video to see how it’s done!

WATCH THE VIDEO:

After stamping and die-cutting all of my images, I lay out the images on an A2-sized panel so that they were all evenly spaced out. Then I used some Glad Press ‘N Seal too pick up all the pieces and flipped it over to add foam adhesive all over the back. This keeps the layout just the way you want it while you add dimension!

Once all the foam adhesive is in place, I flipped it back over and adhered it to the A2 panel. I left mine white for today’s card, but some ink-blended or a fun background would be beautiful too!

I die-cut my CZ Hugs sentiment from vellum, gold glitter and white cardstock to layer together and adhered it to the bottom third of my card. To finish, I filled in the white space with a few iridescent jewels.

I hope you like this project! Thanks so much for visiting today! ~Caly

  1. Hi, Caly – What a lovely card! Very pretty! I felt like you were apologizing for not doing a watercolor wash or ink blend in the background. Pisshaw! You don’t need to apologize or explain or defend your choice. You are the artist and your creation is beautiful! I thought you had a perfect amount of Studio Katia sparklies and I love the end result.
