Acorny Thank You Happy Scenes Hardwood Tin Of Cards Wonderland Antler Swap, Background Stamp Tutorial

Yesterday I showed you how I made my antlers. Today I'll share the card I made for the Stamp Share For Leaders swap. 

Today is the first day of the Holiday Catalog so you can order all these new items!

For the base of the antlers, I stamped the image on white cardstock, punched it out with the Acorn Builder Punch and used a scissors to trim along the top.

I also thought I'd show you how I stamp with the background stamps. I start by laying the stamp on my desk. Nope, I don't use a block!

I ink the stamp by tapping the ink pad directly to the stamp:

I place my cardstock onto the stamp:

And use a small block to push the cardstock down to the stamp. I make sure I move it all over the cardstock so no spots are missed:

And here is my stamped cardstock:

Perfect every time! And I usually don't have any ink on my fingers, except for one from lifting a corner of the cardstock after it's inked. This is so much easier than having it on a big block, trying to get it all inked and then trying to get a complete stamped image. I hope this helps you if you've been struggling with the larger stamps!
