Make The Most Of Your Background Rubber Stamps

Hello long time no blog - sorry about that but the problems with the internet connection has really thrown me off balance.  Happy to say that it is all sorted - so no excuses not to blog right? 


So for my first post in over a month I thought I would show how you can utilise your background rubber stamps.  If like me you have boxes of stamps and only use a few favourites then read on.  I have a LOT of stamps but use only a few but recently I've been using one of my background stamps for designing some jewellery - wearable art.  


But first I would like share the 2 cards I've made using a stamp from Stamp Camp (Whimsy Waves #S358).  


The first card is a trio of Christmas Trees.  


The second card is a parcel.

And  I mentioned a jewellery project - well here is a sneak peek.

Thank you for popping in to read my post.  I would love to hear your thoughts on the above projects so don't be shy in leaving a comment.
  
If you would like to see more creativeness then why not pop on over to Wendy's and check out the Handmade Monday Blog.

Have a great week and I hope the sunshine's for you all.

Thank you. Have missed your blogs. I haven't done much with stamps, altho I have a tin full of them. I should drag them out and make some Christmas cards this year. Thanks for the nudge.
