Creating your own background paper (aka wallpaper) can be a fast and economical way to breath new life into some of your stamps. I tried to stay away from a large background stamp (which are usually quite expensive) and instead focused on a repeated pattern with a small stamp. I chose this $1.50 stamp from Michaels.
The flowers and polka dots were punched from scraps of SU paper. The stitched banner is Lil' Inkers die, SU sentiment stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black, SU buttons and baker's twine (?).
Tons of inspiration to be found over at the CAS-ual Fridays blog so check it out. There is still time to play along :)
