One stamp - many backgrounds!!

When I saw what Christy has done with her background stamp, I was very intrigued by her idea of using the same stamp with different techniques.  By doing that you can get very creative and pretty much go wild with the variations!!  It is just amazing how you can create so many different looks with one single stamp!!  Thank you Christy for the inspiration!!

This will be one of the projects at my May Workshop.  Yes, my workshops are BACK on schedule!!   To see other projects for this Workshop please click HERE.

May Workshop is scheduled for:
Sunday, May 29th
10 am to 6 pm
at Scrapbook Island in San Jose, CA

This Workshop is by invitation only.  If you would like to attend but did not receive an Evite invitation from me, please email me at and I will add you onto the list.

At the workshop you will get to try and experiment with TONS of different techniques and combinations using various supplies.  Below are some samples..  As you can see, these stand out very well to make a card on their own or you can use them for backgrounds for your cards.

Photos really don't do these samples any justice, they look SO MUCH better in real life!!
