Easy backgrounds for cards | Encouraging Words Simon Says Stamp

August 05, 2017

Simon Says Stamp goodies landed at my  door a couple of days ago and and I got busy. They  are part of  the new release called Back to School,  Encouraging Words  filled with beautiful school themed stamps and dies

Check out the full release here!

With the stamps and dies in my hands I started thinking about the things I could create with them. Hmmm..   Yesterday was  my 5th Anniversary and we had  plans with the family. I couldn't escape to my craft room and make something quickly... I'm never quick at crafting !

Then miraculously I saw a video on instagram with a colourful rainbow background and a rocket !! YAY that's was  the perfect source of inspiration.

  Below are screenshots of the video.

So  I made super quick and easy  rainbow cards using: Space Journey and Trickle Breeze

The sentiment is from Seeing Stars Stamp Set which is just perfect to be used with these dies and believe me I tried to colour the die cuts  in many different ways.

 I even made planets with fun effects using Brusho Pigments but  things were not  really working  as I expected, so I decided to  leave all the die cuts in  white.

 I used Nuvo Creative Pens to apply  colours to the backgrounds as shown  in the video  below and I also give some extra ideas there so feel free to have a look and let me know what you think.

I'm loving the versatility of the Nuvo Creative Pens and Simon Says Stamp tools... Look at that little rocket!!

 If you like these kind of backgrounds have a look at  another simple card background made using markers  here
