Today, Lizzie is sharing on her blog how to build beautiful background papers with your stamps for your projects:


“Stamping backgrounds is one of my favorite things to do. Whenever I’m stumped or simply in the mood to create I pull out a few stamp sets and start to experiment. You can achieve such unique backgrounds by layering textures, colors, and patterns. The creative possibilities are truly endless! I hope you’ll join me today as I share a little bit about my background building process.”
