Welcome to another week of WHW! Today, Deb shares with us how she creates a perfect square using our background stamps. Also our WHW tutorial contest will last 2 weeks! Deadline August 7th! Hugs, Joanna

Hello I’m here today to show you how I use background stamps and a mask to make a perfect stamped square for the centre of your card.

Inspired by Stamping Tutorial

You will need a square card, a piece of card the same size as your blank card, background stamps, I used Inspired by Stamping Background Basic III and a square die.

Take you piece of extra card and place the die in the centre and cut out.

Place the die cut card over the front of your card blank, I secured with some washi tape, so it didn’t slip as I stamped.

Ink up your stamp and stamp onto your card.

Keep stamping, lining up which is so simple to do when you have clear stamps, until you’ve stamped all of the inside square.

Remove the mask and you will have a perfect square stamped image using any background stamp.

I finished the card off by adding a sentiment using Vintage Banners and Little Phrases and a little die cut butterfly. Don’t throw the mask away, you can keep re-using it.
