Background Stamps Blog Hop - October 2021

I'm excited to be participating in the Background Stamps Blog Hop.  One of my favourite things to do is to create a quick and easy card using a Background Stamp.  For my card today I used the Many Happenings Stamp Set to create my background.  It's not necessarily a background stamp set because there are coordinating dies to cut out all of the sentiments, but when I first say this stamp set and the Many Messages Stamp Set, I immediately thought of using them as background stamps.

What could be better than this quick and easy card!


  1. Cut Pool Party card stock 5 1/2" x 8 1/2" and score at 4 1/4".  Fold on the score line to form card base.
  2. Cut Pool Party card stock 4" x 5 1/4"
  3. Stamp background image using Many Happenings Stamp Set using Pool Party ink.
  4. Use the edge of your paper snips to distress the sides of the stamped card stock.  
  5. Wrap ribbon around the bottom of the card and tie a bow.
  6. Stamp sentiment on a scrap of Basic White card stock using Pool Party ink.
  7. Cut out using Messages Die by placing Basic White card stock directly under the appropriate opening.
  8. Adhere over the same words on the card base using Dimensionals.
  9. Adhere Pearls on card base.

Now it's time to check out all of the amazing projects in this blog hop:
