Video: Neat and Tangled July Release Day 2- Creating Stamped Backgrounds

by May Park-

Hi, crafty friends! Welcome to Day 2 of July Release Week from Neat & Tangled. Today I have two cards featuring the Life is Beautiful set. Here are what I came up with:


If you are one of my followers, you may know how much I love making my own backgrounds with small stamps. If not, you can see the examples HEREHERE, and HERE. (By the way, I’m entering this card into the Virginia’s View challenge #16.)

I created a single layer card by stamping various images from the Life is Beautiful stamp set. I also used some previous release: the sentiment from Kindness Matters set and small heart images from Jump Start My Heart set.

This is a processing video on how I made my card. You can watch my video tutorial here or in HD on YouTube. If you like this video, please give it a thumbs up. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel, too.


Since this is my favorite stamping technique, I couldn’t help myself making another card. Same color combo but slightly different background! I had so much fun stamping all the cute images from the set. By the way, these are the ink colors I used for my cards: Mama Elephant(Buttercup, Lollipop, Pacific Blue, Fresh Mint), Hero Arts(Butter Bar), Avery Elle(New Moon).

    Hi May, what a treat to hear your voice! I hope you continue on future videos. Your video on creating your adorable backgrounds is so helpful. Also, the pencil you used to draw the border lines is super cute…is that a crown on top?!!
