AC Moore Background Papers Class

These are samples of a two-page spread featuring hand stamped background papers. In this project's case, I used four pieces of white cardstock to create this layout. I'll be teaching this project at AC Moore's in Dover on Wednesday, November 4, 2009 from noon to 2 P.M.

We will be using some of the following techniques:
  • Random Stamping
  • Faux Suede
  • Generational Stamping
  • Masking
  • Chalking
  • Pouncing

Layout Materials:

  • 12 x 12 White Cardstock (4 sheets)

Photo Suggestions:

  • 4” x 6” (3)
  • 2. 6” x 4” (1)


  • Inkssentials Glossy Accent
  • Color Box Classic Pigment Ink 0813 Provence*
  • Color Box Classic Pigment Ink 08001 Pinwheel*
  • Approximately 2 yards of coordinating ribbon
  • Pop dots
  • Scotch Tape
  • Craft sponge, cut in quarters.
  • Stamp scrubber

Stamp Sets:

  • Hamptons Craft Affair SC0155 Owl Garden**
  • Hamptons Craft Affair SC0151 Easy ABC
  • Inkadinkado 97626 Patterned Bugs**
  • Stampology Clear Stamps Katie Pertiet – Journaling**


  • 12x12 cutter
  • EK Success 3-inch scalloped circle punch or a plain circle punch.
  • EK Success 2-inch scalloped circle punch
  • EK Success corner rounder

    * NOTE: This reflects the color scheme I used; you may certainly select your own. Plan on a three or five-color palate with a corresponding brown for chalking/edging.

    ** NOTE: These are the stamp sets I used. Should you decide to use different stamps, make sure you have a variety of small pieces for background, and larger complementary design and that one of your stamp sets has a tree that measures at least three inches tall.
