Off Beat Backgrounds

Waltzingmouse Stamps



A set of stamps designed to help you make interesting backgrounds and/or borders. This set features a special plaid builder border stamp with which you can create many, many different plaids and stripes just by varying the placement of the stamp and inking it up in one or two colours, check out my blog for more information on this.

Also included in this set are a ‘graph paper’ stamp, a ‘chequerboard stamp’ for all those homespun projects, a faux stitching border/background stamp, some funky chevrons and the ever popular polka dots.

The chequerboard stamp is approximately 6 inches long by just under 1 and 1/4 inches tall.

All images and stamp designs are Copyright © 2009 Waltzingmouse Stamps, Claire Brennan.

Small images show cards made using these stamps, other stamps may also have been used on these samples.
