Hi everyone, Steph Ackerman here using some amazing stamps from So Suzy Stamps.  Be sure to check out the store for some fun and funky stamps.

As a crafter, I tend to hold onto scraps of papers in the hopes that I can use them at some point.  Since I wanted to focus on this wonderful sentiment - Be, I decided to create a unique background.

I cut an assortment of papers into triangles and inked the edges before aligning them on a cardstock panel.  Once the background was finalized, I trimmed away the excess and matted it on cardstock before adding it to the card.  The sentiment was stamped in black and matted with coordinating cardstock.

This is a fun technique and allows you to use whatever papers you have in your stash, and lets the sentiment shine.

Thanks for stopping by today.
