Hello There Card + Wide Stripe Background Stamp Tips!

Hi all!

One of my favorite new stamps from the Spring 2014 release is the Wide Stripe Background. I’ve wanted a stamp like this for ages! Of all the things I wanted to use the background for, today’s card features the one I was most excited about.

The stripes on the stamp are very even, with the stripes being the same size as the gap in the stripes. This makes it possible to stamp a complete alternating colored background…


Because it’s a very solid stamp, the drying-back property of the Simon Says Stamp inks really contribute to a solid, even stamping. For this card I used Green Apple and Green Leaf inks. :)

I also got to throw in a new color of cardstock from the Spring 2014 release: Doll Pink Cardstock. Such a pretty pink!

Anyhow, be sure to watch the video for some additional tips on stamping with the Wide Stripe Background stamp. :)


  1. Great card, Kristina! Before watching the video I thought for sure that you had used breen cardstock as a base for your card! Was I surprised to see that you started with white. That may be my new favorite background stamp!

  2. I love how you used the background stamp! The little pop of pink in the heart makes the card. Thanks for sharing!! :)

  3. I love this card and I don’t even like green that much. It’s so cute. I especially love your doodled frame.

  4. I love the hand drawn frame. My white pen has ink but I can’t get it to flow…any ideas how to revive it?
