REVIEW: Sentiments + Backgrounds


Every card should make a statement. Whether its with the perfect sentiment or an eye catching background  – each project tells a story. Today, the design team is sharing fun projects that put backgrounds and sentiments center stage and we are letting our stamps do all the talking.

With each growing release, we love to take time out and review all of the new products, point out fun tips and tricks, and share lots of inspiration along the way. Let’s get started and take a closer look at the {Sentiments and Backgrounds} from Collection 3…

We released a brand new product as part of Collection 3 – Imprints. Imprints are double-sided, high-quality, metal plates that can be used in leading die cutting machines to create detailed impressions. Imprints 1 combines lots of elements from Collection 3 to create beautiful collage scenes on both sides of the plate.


Thank You


For today’s project we used both sides of the Imprints 1 plate – one on each thank you card.  We kept the tone white on white to create more of a stationery set with a modern design.
Each panel was impressed and then adhered to the card base with dimensionals.
We then stamped two different styles of the “thank you” sentiment on a strip of A Blanc Check cardstock. A strip of Coral Necklace cardstock was adhere to the panel, and the sentiment strip was adhered with dimensionals.
There were several great sets filled with fun backgrounds and wonderful sentiments, you will have to stop by the design team for inspiration with more of these sets released in Collection 3.  And be sure to stop back tomorrow for a fun PARTY {BLOG} HOP and a special release!
