Wacky Wednesday - Create Your Own Mosaic Background Stamp

CreateYour Own Mosaic Background Stamp

Today I am going to share a tip with you that I learned from another Stampin Up! demonstrator.  It is a recycle or upcycle tip, so to speak. 

You know the frames of left over rubber that you have after you have mounted your wood mount stamps.  Well don' t throw it away!!

 This is what can be achieved with those left-over frames. Isn't this an amazing background!!

Use your scissors, cut the rubber until you have a bunch of shapes to play with:

Since we are  using the rubber from the wood mount stamps, you will also need a wood block to mount them on.  Note that you can use the cling mount foam as well with a clear block.

Ink up your new "background stamp" and stamp your background.  I tried this one in soft suede as well as tempting turqoise- both of them made AWESOME cards. 

So don't throw your leftover stamp frames in the trash- upcycle them into background stamps!!
