Need a creative card idea? I’ve got fun inspiration using a background stamping technique that you’re gonna love. It uses a unique stencil idea, ink and glitter paper. DIY cards have never been more fun to make!

I’ve got double the fun today! I’m teaching you an easy way to make “faux stencil” backgrounds for your DIY card. But I don’t stop there! Wait until you see how easy it is to provide color to glimmer paper. And how about another exciting share? We’re also kicking off the May card making kit.

Part one: I’ll be teaching you how your dies create the perfect stencil. Grab your favorite detailed die and a sponge dauber!

Part two: The same Bundle of products used in today’s video are part of this month’s card making kit. I’ll be sharing the completed cards with you in the video plus the details on how to place an order for your own kit.

Background Stamping: The Card Details

Create cards just like this one using the Honey Bee Bundle (stamp set + coordinating dies).

One thing I love about the card I’m demonstrating today are the realistic images of these bees! The coordinated beehive and flowers create the perfect accessory to create cards at any level.
