Hip Hop {Thursday's} All About Backgrounds

Happy Thursday! You should be joining me from Brooke's fun blog. If not, please be sure to hop on back to the Unity blog and start at the beginning. You wouldn't want to miss any of the fun today for sure!

Today, I am making it all about backgrounds using Unity stamps! I created two cards for you using my stamps to make backgrounds! On this first card, I used the new Unity Just My Type alpha set to create my background. I think I may do this a lot! I love the look of the alpha as a background! For my second card, I used the scalloped frame stamp from the January Unity Love, Etc. kit to make this background. I inked up just the floral design on the inside of the stamp and stamped it four times on my white Paper Trey cardstock. Then I cut it down to the size I wanted. Super easy, and these flowers make a beautiful background!I hope you enjoy these and will try using the awesome Unity stamps to make your own backgrounds! Now hop on over to Anne-Marie's stunning blog for more Unity fun! Blessings,
