Today I’m going to show you how to make stamped images pop on a background! I love to create with background images and over the weekend I played around with how to make a stamped image POP off of a stamped background image. The results were amazing! Today’s video will show you how I did it.

I used the Love What You Do stamp set today but there are lots of different stamp sets that have great background images in them that you could use.

Let me share some photos of the card. I thought it was so pretty. What a nice “pick-me-up” card to send to a friend!


Don’t you just love how images pop on a background like this?!


Can you see the shadowing and the Wink of Stella? It’s hard to photograph but let me just say, in person, it looks amazing!


The shading is very subtle and that’s what makes it look so nice. It’s so soft and pretty!

What an exciting time it has been in our house! I thought I would give you a little update.
My daughter Ginny is a Senior in high school this year and graduation is just a couple weeks away.
She had been planning on attending the local community college to knock out some basics before deciding on which university to attend. WELL…. the Choral Director from the University of Oklahoma came to her school and saw her special needs musical program she put together. He was very impressed by what she had done and although auditions for his program were over, he asked if she would be willing to come in and audition for some of the music professors. She auditioned on May 1st and on May 2nd she received not one, not two, but THREE offers from different programs within the School of Music. 
I couldn’t say anything until we received the letter stating she was accepted into OU and that came on Friday. She didn’t get a letter but a box with her pennant, confetti, and of course, the letter. I am SO stinkin’ proud of this girl! She’s going to do great things with her degree in Music Education where she plans to perfect her special needs musical program. Her dream is to take the program and teach it all over the country.

Thank you all so much for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed the Tuesday Technique video. 

I hope that you can join me tomorrow night for the YouTube Premiere! I have so much to share with you then! 

Make it a great week everyone!
