    Gorgeous mixed media project! I make mostly cards and would use the Background Basics stamps for, well… backgrounds. : ) I like this project so much, I think I’d adapt some of it for cards, too!!

    I’m a card maker so I’d be using the stamps for backgrounds on my greeting cards. One of the DT had a patchwork piece that she made and I would love to try that. It turned out so pretty. It looks like it would be fun and fast. This would be a great idea for gifts for my friends and family.
    thanks for having the hop.

    Gorgeous card. Love all the textures and the background.
    So many possibilities for using these background stamps. I could see me using them on cards, mixed media projects and more. Combined with the gorgeous inks of our stamps and creating just got easier. Put these on my wish list.
