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.
See the background on that card? It was created entirely with the Big Timber Lowercase and Big Timber Outline Lowercase stamps. It could have easily been created with the Big Timber Uppercase and Big Timber Outline Uppercase stamps as well.
Let me how you can use alphabet stamps to make your own background paper like I did!
Start by using two stamps to spell "hi" in the middle of a large stamping block. Now, you are going to randomly place letter and punctuation stamps all around it. You'll end up with something like.
Ink up the remaining stamps. You can use one color of ink or multiple colors of ink. If you choose to use multiple colors of ink, apply the lightest color of ink first. Use the darker ink color second.
Stamp the background on cardstock. And then ink up the "hi" letters. Stamp those right onto your background like so.
