aperture Background Concord & 9th Concord and 9th Concord and 9th Inks nautical colours PinStripe background

Hi There Crafty Friends,

I hope you are all well. This week I wanted to create an aperture card but not as we are used to. So here's what I came up with.


 This gives a simple but effective look to your cards.



Rooting For You Stamp Set ( Concord and 9th)

Candy Stripe Background Stamp (Concord and 9th)


Brushed Stripe Background (Concord and 9th)

Also Used MFT Diagonal Strips Background Stamp

Masking Magic by Gina K

Concord and 9th Ink pads In Midnight, Parsley and Grapefruit.

Circle Die (or something you can draw around to create a circle.)

Rectangle Die  (or something you can draw around to create a rectangle)



Lay down your stamp on to your craft mat, using the masking magic cut out a circle. I die cut mine.

Place it roughly in the centre of the stamp side of your stamp.

                                    Add your desired ink, i'm using the midnight colour from Concord and 9th. Ink over the circle or rectangle what ever shape you are using. 
Place your card over the top and a piece of copy paper over that. Smooth it down then remove to reveal the aperture design.

Then remove your mask. 
This is a different stamp as I forgot to take a shoot of the image.
I then took the small leave image and stamped around the outside of the circle.
I slowly built up my image and sentiment. It is all framed into the blank circle you create.

Here are a few more cards I created with different background stamps.

I do hope you've enjoyed today's post, and see how you can adapt your back ground stamps and get more out of your stamps and inks.

Happy Stamping
