Create Backgrounds With Sentiments

Hi friends! I’m up on the MFT Youtube channel today with an exclusive video showing how I created my own background using just sentiments


You can check out the video HERE or down below.

You can use any sentiments you have in your collection for this but I’m using the Straight From The Heart stamp set from MFT. I love this set because of the variety of sentiments and styles. It makes for a great background!

I placed the sentiments in different directions on the front of my card and stamped them in MFT Extreme Black Ink.

Be sure to watch my video where I’m sharing tips about stamping all of these sentiments.

Since I have so many sentiments on the front, I only added this heart die cut from red glitter paper using Piece of my Heart popped up with foam tape.

I absolutely love this black, white and red color scheme. So catching and clean!

So take a look at your sentiments in your collection. I bet you could create a background like this too!

Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi, Mindy – I love to do backgrounds w/ all sorts of word stamps. Great idea. A solid heart would be cool, too… I think the gems were the perfect embellishment. Colored and in the same color family as the focal point heart but not huge and distracting.
