Stamped Background

Are you ever looking for that perfect background stamp but can’t seem to find it?  Well, do what design team member Nina Yang did and use one of you favorite clear or cling stamp sets to make a custom background! She had us fooled (we were trying to figure out what wood background stamp of ours this was!!!)

Designer Notes:

1. Create your own patterned paper with stamps and ink.

2. Cover the flaws with strips of paper or a sentiment.

3. Press your white cardstock on to a inkpad to get a perfect color match.

4. Many of the sentiments in the You Said It set fit in the Journal Shapes set.
