Friends of Unity November Blog Hop~ Backgrounds

 Hello, friends! Welcome to our November Friends of Unity Blog Hop!

This months focus is on backgrounds. This can be a challenge for many, including myself! I do more CAS cards and very few with backgrounds.

However, I looked forward to the challenge, had fun and very happy with what I created!

Keep in mind, backgrounds don't always have to be created using a "background" stamp. 

This first stamp card was created using the background stamp "A Faithful Letter". I absolutely love how Lisa and Charmain incorporated various scripture to create this amazing stamp.

I wanted to bring attention to a specific verse so I cut it out and popped it up. Loving how the splatter of gold brings this card together.

For my second card I used a recent new release "A Little Christmas Carol". This is a precious background stamp full of different Christmas themed songs.

Here as well, I wanted to showcase a specific line so I cut out what spoke to me most and popped it up. Doesn't the red just make it all pop!

My final and most fun card was made using my friend Jeanie's (Washie Horse Designs) stamp called "Thanks so Mush". I loved creating a background with this stamp and popping up colord mushrooms to a b&w background!

I would love to know which card was your favorite!

As always~
