I just got a background stamp I have been eyeing for a long time--since this catalog debuted back in summer!--and delightedly sat down to play with it. I came up with this simple card we will be making at the 10-10-10 Event on Saturday. I haven't used my Blender Pens in a while and I'd forgotten how easy it is to color and shade with them! They were the perfect tool to give my poppies a "handpainted" look. They are crisp and modern, and I liked the way the Curly Cute stamp set font went with them.
TIP: Did you know a bunch of Stampin' Up background stamps now come in clear-mount? If storage is an issue for you like it is for many, you'll also love the cost savings, too--clear-mount background stamps are just $13.95 instead of $17.95. You'll still get the same rich detail of our red rubber stamps, with the convenience of cling-mount. Clear Block F is reccomended for clear-mount background stamps.
