Easy Sentiment Backgrounds + A Video Tutorial

In almost every stamp set you can find sentiments. Aside from using them to add a sentiment to your cards, you can also use them to create some really easy and fun backgrounds on your handmade cards. Watch the video tutorial below for all the details!

Making the Backgrounds

All Things Are Possible Handmade Greeting Card

This first handmade card is so bright and colorful! I used the large “Saved by Grace” stamp set for the majority of this card. I started by stamping the large rectangle “Faith” sentiment onto an A2 white cardstock panel in a rainbow pattern. Normally I would hand stamp these, but because this is such a solid stamp, I did use my MISTI. It takes a little more time, but it’s well worth it!

To finish this handmade greeting card, I stamped several of the flowers and leaves in the Saved by Grace stamp set. After ink blending some color onto each one and fussy cutting, I arranged the images into a bouquet on the front of the card. The final touch was adding a simple sentiment from the Heir of God stamp set.

Proverbs 31 Handmade Card

This sentiment background was the easiest to make thanks to help of the Proverbs 31 stamp set. In that stamp set there is a large cluster of words already put together. What I did was just stamp that stamp repeatedly onto cardstock. It was that simple!

The rest of this card was finished with the Proverbs 31 stamp set, too. I love when I only need one set to complete an entire card! The only “extra” I used was a stencil to add a little interest behind my stamped image.

Fruit of the Spirit Handmade Card

Creating angled sentiment background is easy with the help of Creative Corners in your MISTI. For this background, I used the Fruit of the Spirit stamp set and arranged the sentiments at an angle in my MISTI. Then, I stamped them repeatedly to fill up the background.

To finish this card I continued to use only the Fruit of the Spirit stamp set. After stamping the sentiment background, I created another background directly on the card base by stamping the fruits from the set and coloring them in. Then, I stamped a large verse onto a die cut to finish the card!


Creating backgrounds with your sentiment stamps is a great way to really stretch your stamps to their fullest potential! I hope you all enjoyed a look at how I like to create my sentiment backgrounds.
