Video: Custom Stamp a Chevron Background – Altenew!

Sooo much stamping and too much fun with the new Simple Shapes XL from Altenew, you know, the more I look at this set the more patterns I see….  so, watch this space.

I used the nesting Halftone Hearts Die and added the balloon floating fox from Hug Me in the centre, and I think the clouds definitely work as an illusion to create a sky (wink), be it a chevron sky.

Some Dark Gray cardstock seemed perfect for the Script Words 2 die cut ‘happy’ and a old style type font ‘birthday’ from my well loved Birthday Greetings Stamp set and seriously this card came together very easily… that never happens!

  1. I don’t know how you do it, Therese. You always make really complicated cards look so easy to make. Love the clouds – they really do “ground ” the floating fox. ☺

  2. I’m amazed at your ability to “free stamp” those chevron images…Mine would look like I’d used a blindfold! What a fun card, Therese! Love the chevron sky and that sweet little fox floating between the clouds. I do love the gray sentiment, too. Such a classy color! Such a classy (and very fun) card!! : )

  3. I’ve watched a number of videos on stamped chevron backgrounds lately, and this is hands-down the easiest approach I’ve seen. Thanks for yet another good-humored, practical, and creative video!

  4. Gorgeous. I have come to expect that what I first think is pattern paper you stamp yourself. Very clever and awesome stamping. Most would just search our stash for pattern paper! 🙂 or is that just me?

  5. Goodness, Therese … even when your’re post night duty, you still create amazing cards! This is a delight, that bright chevron background is so delicious … a perfect spot for that little fox floating up among the clouds! Hugs, Anita 🙂

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
