Make Your Own Background!!!

We all love Designer Series Paper (especially when it is on sale Buy 3, Get 1 Free) but did you know that you can create your own Designer Series Paper? Using any stamp set really, you can create that perfect matching piece. If you want a Melon Mambo flower paper, take one of your favorite flower stamp sets and stamp all over Whisper White or even Melon Mambo cardstock. If you want random splotches, take your Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set or a spritzer bottle if you like living on the edge! I am loving the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set because it has those splotch images that come out perfect every time. When I use my spritzers, it is not the same…..spray once – goes in the eye, spray twice – got the left corner, spray a third time – covered the whole piece in a wet mess. Am I the only person with this problem? My other problem is when it looks perfect, I think maybe a little more in that right corner and I go for it and then it becomes not so perfect. Ehh It’s handmade with love, not perfection! 🙂

Birthday Gorgeous Grunge,

Check out this amazing card. I used the itty bitty dotted stamp in Basic Gray on the background and then filled in with the larger splotch in Tempting Turquoise. My husband said I should have used another color (on the splotches or cardstock) rather than using just Tempting Turquoise. What do you think? Leave me a comment down below! Greeting was stamped from the Big New Stamp Set!

Birthday Gorgeous Grunge,

This card was created with the lines image from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set (the one that looks like a car left black marks). The greeting was stamped from Age Awareness! With the lines, you can create an entire background or stamp vertical and horizontal and you will have a cool crisscross pattern! So many options for creating cool backgrounds! Which is your favorite?

Happy Stampin’!
