Repeat Stamped Background on Kraft by Laura


Hello and welcome, crafty friends! Today I’ll be sharing a fun way to use up all those mini sentiments (those smaller, add-ons that come in most Stamp sets) to create a repeating background pattern. I was trying to keep this as quick and easy as possible, so I didn’t measure anything out beforehand and just freehand stamped them using my acrylic blocks. All the supplies I used today can be found over at The Little Paper Tree, and don’t forget … Read More

Many Thanks Floral Card
