Altering a Background Stamp:

Hello Crafters!
I’m so sad this is my last post for Stamping Bella!
I’ve had a ton of fun creating cards with these super cute stamps this month!
Speaking of super cute can we talk about these Stuffies stamps for a minute?
Did you know that Stamping Bella has a whole line of Stuffies that are just adorable?

Aren’t they so sweet?!
You may also notice I did an entire background for them. Except I stamped most of it. Didn’t see this background in the store?
It’s because I modified one they already had – Cave Kids Backdrop.

I really loved the Cave Kids Backdrop but my Stuffies are cold water animals…
A few quick and easy adjustments later, BAM!
Snowy Ocean Sunrise.
You can see how I created the whole card in the video below
See how easy it can be to create a completely different scene from background stamps you may already own?!
I just love versatile stamps don’t you?

I hope you found something today, or at least this month (haha),  that inspires you to try something new!
A huge thanks to Stamping Bella for having me and to you guys for hanging out with me each week!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
