Fun with Large Scale Backgrounds

Hello all and thank you for stopping by. Today the MFT Design Team is taking you on a tour of all the new products available NOW, right HERE. Go SHOP SHOP SHOP for all the amazing new products. :) 

I have several cards to share with you, all of which use the new Large Scale Backgrounds stamp set.  I just LOVE it.  I am embracing more simple cards and having large backgrounds helps keep the "stuff" to a minimum.  LOL

Up first is this clean and simple card using Sending Thanks and Large Scale Backgrounds.  You'll earn Large Scale Backgrounds FREE with a $60+ order.  At a $15.95 value, that is a GREAT bonus!

The dots from Large Scale Backgrounds were stamped with Sweet Tooth Pigment Ink.  The sentiment is stamped on a piece of Smooth White Card Stock that was coated with Martha Stewart Chalkboard Paint.  I LOVE the realistic look when using the paint. It's SO cool.  I highly recommend it!  The sentiment was stamped with Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

I used some postal elements from Sending Thanks to accent the card.

Check out the shine of the "chalkboard".  LOOOOVE.

Up next is this card that I used the same "chalkboard paint effect" on.  I used the Chalkboard Frame Builder to create a frame, which was stamped with the wood plank image from Western Backgrounds.  I added some staple accents to the frame to add a little bit of rustic to an otherwise bright card.

Check out that chalkboard shine.  :)  The sentiment was embossed in white.  I added a Mini Rolled Rose to the corner of the frame.

I used the border from Blueprints 6, cut from Smooth White.  The background is the houndstooth from Large Scale Backgrounds, stamped in Limeade.

Finally, I got a little "mixed media" for this card.  I stamped the large dots on the background piece (which is painted over so they are very faint).  I also stamped the butterfly with the dots. The background was created with several layers of paint.  I used the Winged Beauties Stencil and Modeling Paste on the background and inked them with Kraft ink to distress them a bit.

The butterfly is perched on a High Tea Doily, cut from Smooth White and sprayed with Sheer Shimmer Mist.

The "HELLO" is from Blueprints 7.

Did you know you can earn a FREE stamp set with a $60 purchase ALL DAY, EVERY DAY.  Our Free with $60 is an ongoing promotion with NO expiration date.  It's always a good time to shop MFT.  :)
