I seeee the light!!!!!!
I get it!!!! I get it!!!!! Shouting it from the rooftops!!!!


Ahhhhhhhh, glad I let that out, I must have used every background stamp I have been hoarding, collecting dust with tonight, and holy moly!!!! What a diff!!

Ok, anyone who thinks something as mild as canvas can't make a huge impact.....DUMB BUNNY!!!!!!!

Thank you all for helping me see the light!!!

WELCOME to the wonderful world of background stamps! they are FATNASTIC I have 20 :)

I love bg stamps! Nothing like them to add texture and dimension to a project. What's really nice is to use a couple of backgrounds together, like French Script, Canvas and the little dots from Itty Bitty Backgrounds.

Here's an example:

You are too cute, yeah I really think they can jazz up a card, my stock of bg stamps has increased dramatically in the last number of months. Have fun!!!!!!!

Background stamps - WoooHoooo!!!!

I always tell my customers.......naked cardstock looks so bare. Stamp in up with your background stamps.

Ban Naked Cardstock!!!!!!

I have to admit...it is kind of a monkey see monkey do thing with me....seeing lots of cool cards in the gallery that feature the BG and now I see them in a whole new light too. :D Plus DOH!! I never even thought that you could layer them!!! OMG!! Now I am looking at BG stamps very differently.... I'm digging the cheesecloth, crosshatch and that script one. Just ordered a neat BG from TAC that is script about the beauty of a woman by Audrey Hepburn. That looked like it had potential also. You can most definitely add me to the BG fan club too!

Rubbernecker 02-10-2006 06:29 AM

Lisa/Ponygirl - your card is stunning!

lesliespringer 02-10-2006 06:34 AM

I am ordering three tonight! Canvas, grosshatch and weathered. Can't wait to get them and play!

laurakj 02-10-2006 07:13 AM

Yea, I was so put off by the price that I never ordered a bkg stamp. Finally I had heard SOOOO many great things about Canvas, I broke down and ordered it! That was all she wrote! I now have 5 and at least 6 more on my wishlist. Now the price seems totally fair!

sunnywl 02-10-2006 07:23 AM

I agree, Ponygirl your cards are AWESOME! You do great coloring!

I used to not like using background stamps as I felt they were too much trouble to ink up, stamp and clean, but they DO make such wonderful results, that I love using them now!

ponygirl40 02-10-2006 03:50 PM

Thanks, Wendy! Remember, too, that the smaller bg sets such as Itty Bitty Backgrounds, Fresh Fillers and Petite Patterns make GREAT backgrounds. You can also make cool coordinating backgrounds using a smaller stamp in your set -- say a flower or leaf -- and Versamark.

Love, love, love the background stamps!!
