Daisy Garden Blended Background

I love to use my Blending Brushes to create beautiful backgrounds for cards. I created this background using Blushing Bride, Fresh Freesia and Gorgeous Grape.  I love my Blending Brushes for all sorts of techniques, but in particular they are amazing to create a background.

Here's the card I created with the Daisy Garden Stamp Set.  You can check out my Video on creating this background.  You will find that the Stamparatus works really well to stamp the large background image - it is much easier to stamp than with the large block.


  1. Cut Highland Heather card stock 4 1/4" x 11".  Score at 5 1/2" and fold on score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Fresh Freesia card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Cut Basic White card stock 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" - you will trim this to 3 3/4" x 5" after creating your background.
  4. Stamp the Basic White card stock using Versamark
  5. Sprinkle with White Embossing Powder
  6. Heat to melt with your Heat Tool.
  7. Use your Blending Brushes with Blushing Bride, Fresh Freesia and Gorgeous Grape ink.  Start with the lightest colour and move down to the darkest at the bottom.
  8. Trim to 3 3/4" x 5"
  9. Adhere to Fresh Freesia card stock
  10. Cut Gorgeous Grape Sheer Ribbon 6" and wrap around Fresh Freesia card stock piece and adhere to back.
  11. Adhere to card base.
  12. Cut 4" of ribbon and look under ribbon on card base and tie a knot.
  13. Stamp sentiment on Basic White card stock using Gorgeous Grape ribbon
  14. Cut out using Paper Snips
  15. Adhere to card base
  16. Adhere Pastel Pearls.
  17. Cut Basic White card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  18. Adhere to the inside of the card.
