Monday Inspiration February 22 2010 - Crinkle Background

Can't wait to share this tutorial for you. It is such an easy way create your very own unique background using Saran Wrap and 3 stamp pads. Thank you Beate Johns for introducing me to this technique.

Stampin' Up! Items Used:
Pretty in Pink Classic Stamp Pad
Pale Plum in Pink Classic Stamp Pad
Perfect Plum Classic Stamp Pad
Vintage Labels Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration
Whisper White Card Stock
Wide Oval Paper Punch
Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon
Stampin' Sponges

Saran Wrap
Scotch Tape

Saran Wrap --- take 3 sheets (about the size you would cover an apple easily). Wad the Saran Wrap into a ball and place one on each ink pad. You don't want to intermix these. So one piece per color.

Ink Pads -- any 3 colors will work. Pick a light, a medium shade, and a dark shade.

Open your white card stock (5 1/2 x 8 1/2) scored at 4 1/4".

Ink the Saran Wrap by dabbing on the Pretty in Pink Stamp pad. Now dab on the card stock in a random pattern.

Now do the same with the medium color (Pale Plum).

And next do the same with the Perfect Plum. You will be amazed at all the patterns/designs the Saran Wrap will form.

I did the same stamping on a smaller piece of paper (4 1/4" x 2 3/4"). To finish off each piece I used a sponge to accent the edges of the card stock with Perfect Plum.

I used the Vintage Labels stamp set to create the design above, then accented with the sponge and perfect plum. The design was punched out with the Wide Oval Paper Punch.

Using approximately 5 1/4" of Pretty in Pink Satin Ribbon, set it across the smaller piece of card stock.

Put 4 dimensionals on the back and then attach to the card base.

Using Snail Adhesive, attach the oval to the ribbon. Your card is now complete.

Hope you will try this new technique.
