Split Background Technique | Citrus Stamps + giveaway

tubHello crafty friends,

I am excited to share a card making technique to make simple backgrounds more versatile without adding a lot of time to the process.  Depending on what level you want to take it to, you could use this as a mass production technique with one stamp (set) and one color, or mix it up like I have - I did stick with one ink color per card.  This is part 1 of a 2 part series.  I'm using stamps from Altenew and WPlus9.  If you came here from YouTube looking for details on the giveaway you will find that information after the video on this post.

Today I'm sharing how to do this with a layered stamp set as the main part and also using a similar citrus themed set with a smaller overall size.  Think of ways you might use sets that have a similar theme and style but with different sizes.  It's the best of both worlds when you can stretch your supplies but still get lots of different looks.  On my next post on July 8th, I will be sharing a variation of this technique with outline stamps.   

Here are close ups of each card - the video tutorial will be after the 3rd photo.  The supply list is at the end of this post.
