Default WT250 - Back to Backgrounds (12/24/09)

Good morning and Merry Christmas! I can't believe it's here tomorrow! I'm hoping someone will actually be more organized than I and have a little time to create.

I thought I'd keep today's challenge super simple so that you can work it in even if you only take a few minutes...find ways to use Background Stamps. How do you use yours? Stamp them simply, stamp them on altered projects, stamp them with paint, stamp them with spectrum inks, stamp them with some great techniques.... however you wish to ink them up, have some fun with it!

Please remember to put WT250 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your designs. Please link only newly uploaded creations for this challenge. We want to get you stamping!

My sample: b mine

WT250 Gallery Submissions

Wishing you all a very merry Christmas and the happiest of holidays!

Julia

DH has kicked me out of my craftroom while he makes my Christmas card. Where's the card - how much do you spray on the H2Os, where's his scalpel, it's easier than finding my craft knife
But I'll be along to play as soon as he lets me back up there - meantime I'll get on with tidying.
Happy Christmas to you too, Julia, and thanks for all the great challenges through the year.

What a timely challenge for me, Julia, I just received this PTI background set which I'm wild about....since I'm on my "valentine-making" kick.

Thanks for all you do for all of us challengers! Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all!
I hope to get back to these challenges next week. Since my stamping area is also the dining room and kitchen in our RV, I had to move most everything out to make room for our daughter and her family - they will stay in a motel but serving Christmas dinner for 7

Default WT250 layered buttons

Forgot I used the background stamp on my card, and WT250 was the main reason I made this card. Just got caught up in all the other challenges, too!
