Can you believe it?!! I just can't stop making backgrounds with the Crafters Workshop Templates!! Working with the templates is addicting. There are lots of photos today and this is a long post, so I will keep the talking to a minimum. Check out my original post for the tutorial on how I use the templates. I used Blockhead Stamps on all the cards (there are three of them).
Materials list for First Card:
Template: Mini Cosmic Swirl - Crafters Workshop
Black Soot Distress Ink-Ranger
Coffee Archival- Ranger
Walnut Inks-Lilac and Willow
glimmer sprays in Pink and Orange
CS: Cream, white, celery green and light cocoa
Make three backgrounds using the Swirl template in different color spray inks. Cut slices of the backgrounds and adhere together. Stamp the Bamboo Tree with Coffee ink onto the backgrounds. Add a piece of trim. I liked the organic feel of the edges and did not want to glue them down flat. So, I attached the stamped piece to the card base with brads. Here is a close up
And this is what the inside look like. The sentiment is from Blockheads.
Materials List for Second Card:
Inspired By Nature
Template: Mini Cubist - Crafters Workshop
Frayed Burlap Distress Ink-Ranger
Jet Black Stazon Ink
Markers: Angel Pink-Memento
Butter Yellow- Marvy
Yellow and Green
Walnut Inks-Terra Cotta and Willow
glimmer sprays in Red and gold
Fibers: Golden Harvest Weavewerks
CS: Cream, olive green
Make two backgrounds with the Cubist template on cream CS. On the background that is the least densely colored stamp the Inspire image with Stazon ink. Color the flower with markers. Stamp "Inspire" and the leaf on a scrap; cut out. Color leaf with markers and add to main image. Trim main image and add to second background piece that has been cut to size. Tie two strips of the Rag Weaves around the piece. Add to a card base made from olive green CS.
Materials list for Third Card:
Harried Housewives-Wash Day
Template: Mini Love Beads - Crafters Workshop
Tuxedo Black - Memento
Spun Sugar Distress Ink-Ranger

Make the background with white CS and red spray ink. Stamp Splat stamp in black ink. Distress the edges with black and Spun Sugar inks. Stamp the Housewife in black ink and color with Copic Markers: cut out.
Stamp sentiments with black ink.
