Stamping your own background paper

By | October 4, 2016

I often get asked how I stamp my own background paper to look like it was pre-printed.  It’s really quite easy so I thought I would share the technique with you with my first ever video!!!  Watch here and then come back to see the photographs of the cards and the supplies I used.

What did you think?  A few blunders, but that’s life.  I hope you saw how easy it is to stamp in a diagonal to make a nice background.  Below are the cards I demonstrated and what I used for each one.
