Stamped Backgrounds

I may have covered this topic already, but it's still a good topic, especially for those CAS stampers out there. It's nice to rely on patterned paper, but sometimes that just doesn't do it. In those situations, it's great to be able to make your own! Another thing that's great about doing this- you can ensure that there's the perfect amount of white space left on your "patterned paper" to stamp your sentiment. For these sweet and simple birthday cards, I stamped the sentiment first, then stamped the flowers. I've been seeing a lot of poppy red with chocolate and light pink lately and I've been meaning to use that combo. I love!
