  1. Ooooh, thanks for this tip! I actually have a few background stamps that are perfect for this technique! These cards are pretty!!

  2. Beautiful cards, and love the background technique! Thanks for sharing the video with us. Definitely something I need to try!

  3. Thanks for sharing this technique ! Love the background stamp and the soft colors you used. Very pretty cards !!!

  4. Nice cards! Thanks for the video. :) I often use my mini ink pads to apply multiple colors to a bkgrd stamp. So there are no “squares,” I use a dauber to blend the edges. That adds to the distress look, too.

  5. Beautiful and fun cards! Using only the daubers for the background is actually my favorite. Thank you for the inspiration Yana. :-)
