Default LSC151 - Back to Backgrounds

This challenge was inspired by a thread in general stamping about going through our favorites gallery and deleting old cards. On this thread, there was discussion about the changing trends. So many of the cards in 2005 had at least one stamped BG and sometimes 2 or 3. I hardly ever saw a card with designer paper and there wasn't even a Cuttlebug reaching the cards back then.

This week's challenge is a list with the focus using background stamps. No Cuttlebug or designer papers this week.

Keyword: LSC151

Stamps: 1 or 2 background stamps, a main image set, sentiment optional

Paper & Ink: 2 colors plus a neutral

Tools: anything quick (except Cuttlebug of coarse)

Embellishments: any kind (keep it simple)


My Sample

LSC151 Gallery


If you are new to the challenges, please feel free to do this one or ANY of the challenges at any time. There is no time limit. They are not races to see who can do one first, nor are they contests of any sort. All the challenges are simply to provide inspiration and to get us stamping!


Need help linking a card? Follow these instructions!

1. Open 2 windows. One window for your card and one for this thread.
2. In this thread, click on reply and type anything you want to show before the link.
3. Got to your card window. Highlight the address for your card. (It says www. splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/showphoto..... and so on)
4. Click EDIT. Click COPY
5. Go back to this thread. Click PASTE.
Your done!

What? No cuttlebug? Just kidding. I can still handle this. No sweat. Mine needed some dusting off anyways.

Hi, everyone! Wow...I woke up and decided to work on the challenge...Drat that Harry the Poodle and his tiny bladder! Great challenge, and only one embellishment! Whew!

BTW...I'm stocking up on Valentines Day Cards, that's why I've been using the Regal Rose and Rose Red so much lately!

Here's today's submission:

Great challenge, Jen! I've been using lots of DP lately so I should revisit this challenge. But for now here is my Valentine Tree - TFL! (Sorry that the photo is not so good... it's too early and too cloudy!)

Guess I will be sitting this one out because sadly I don't own one background stamp (hey, what can I say, I started stamping after background stamps were a "must have"...now their are Cuttlebugs, so why bother ). I knew I should have bought that "harlequin" bg stamp at J's yesterday, lol!
