Do you use background stamps?


I have been looking for really good background digital stamps for a while now and I came across this site, Hambo Stamps, that sells really detailed incredible background digital stamps. You can find the link here. I purchased the stage background to use for my Superstar Anya card below.

I just love the background don't you? The idea to have a setting for my stamps has been rolling around in my brain for a while now. Using a background can give your cards some depth and interest.

Wanting a moonscape background I emailed Monica, the site owner, and asked her if she would consider making one. Well she got right back to me and told me that they would! Love it!

My next request will be for a beachscape! The possibilities are endless! Way to go Hambo Stamps!

For this card I printed the background stamp on white cardstock and printed paper. I cut out the large background curtain from the printed paper and placed it over the white cardstock after I colored in the rest of the background. Then colored up the Superstar Anya stamp and cut her out. Next, she was placed her on the stage with pop ups. She just had to be singing on her stage so I added a microphone cut out with my cricut. Added some twine and sentiments, then she was ready for her preview!





Monica, posted this card on the Hambo Stamps blog.  Here is the link.  Thanks Monica!

Try out the background stamps.  See what they can do for your cards. :)
