Big Timber Week: Create a Background with Letter Stamps

Hi all!

Welcome back to Big Timber Week. We hope you've enjoyed all the great ideas we've shared so far this week for using the Big Timber Outline and Big Timber stamp sets.

Today's post is all about using the stamps to create a background. This is a fun way to use one or all four of the stamp sets.

Stamp the background on cardstock. And then ink up the "hi" letters. Stamp those right onto your background like so.
