Creating your own stamped backgrounds

I made these three cards awhile ago and am finally getting around to posting them. So simple to make-- very quick too, so that you can whip up a half dozen or so at a time! The key is stamping your images on a 8 1/2 x 11 piece of paper and cutting it into smaller pieces as you need it. I tried three different combos...

All the flower stamps, dots and sentiments are from Papertrey Ink's Garden of Life stamp set. This set is perfect for creating your own backgrounds- something I haven't really tried much of, but got the hang of quickly.
The first card from the left uses Summer Sunrise and Lemon Tart papers from PTI and black Bazzil cardstock. Ribbon is Summer Sunrise stitched, and inks are Summer Sunrise and Graphite Black.
The second card uses Berry Sorbet, Sweet Blush and black cardstock. Inks are Berry Sorbet, Spring Moss and Graphite Black. The ribbon is misc. from my stash and diamond Stickles were used on the flower centers and the black dots.
The last card uses Lemon Tart and Aqua Mist cardstock. Inks are Lemon Tart, Aqua Mist and Graphite Black. Ribbon is Lemon Tart polka dots.
I hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather like we are having in South Western Ontario...I could really get used to this sunshine! :)
