I love background stamps. They add so much texture to a card. Birch is a new background stamp that is in the Stampin’ Up!® 2019/2020 Annual Catalog. We have birch trees all over our neighborhood and I have memories of sending letters using birch bark to my grandparents who lived in Vermont and Florida. I also saw a card online that used the Birch stamp for water. It was awesome!
The colors I used for this card are Balmy Blue, So Saffron and Smoky Slate. The easiest way to stamp with such a large stamps is to use your Stamparatus. That way if you don’t get ink in all the right places you can just stamp it again in the exact same spot. If you don’t have a Stamparatus (what? that is just craziness!), then you can always turn the background stamp upside side, ink it and then lay your cardstock on top and rub. But really. You need to get a Stamparatus!
I stamped the flowers from the stamp set called Daisy Lane and punched from out using the Daisy Punch and the Medium Daisy Punch. The sentiment is from another new stamp set called Band Together. I love the font in this stamp set.
