February 2014 Stamping Technique - Saran Wrap Smoosh

March, 2014 - Technique – Saran Wrap Smoosh!
Month: March, 2014
I just love using materials in a technique that you find right in your home.  The results ended up being just a beautiful background that you can easily do again and again!!
This technique uses Saran Wrap!  Or really any plastic wrap will do.  Just take a length of plastic wrap, gather it up in the middle and use this to dab ink from your stamp pad.  You can use as little or as much as you would like to create a cute background.  This technique is so easy that I guarantee you won't get stressed out trying to make it yourself.
All stamps are from Stampin' Up! as is the Cardstock and Accessories.

Our first card would be a great birthday card or in this case was the Valentine card that I sent my little grandson, Easton.
