Stampin' Saturday

Day 42 at 365 Cards was to stamp our background. No patterned paper allowed!! I am not crazy about stampin'. I'm just not good at it! I don't think I own the right ink pads, I put to much pressure on my stamp and the list goes on and one...LOL!!! But in the end, this is my stamped background card for today!!

supplies:
AC cardstock
ribbon from Walmart
stamp from Autumn Leaves - Hearts & Stars
Delta dye based ink pad
foam squares

What a great background and I love how you used the same stamp for the embellie. I love it for a boys card.

great job, love the card and the stamping, but I understand what you mean about stamping, it sounds so simple and you put the ink on put your stamp down, pull it up and, "what", it can be frustrating, but great job.
