A backgrounder is often provided with press releases or other brief press pieces. The purpose of a backgrounder is to give a brief history of an issue or an event that is above and beyond the information included in press release or press advisory.

Help! You have referenced "Create-a Cut" on several of your projects. I can't seem to find any information on this item. Can you fill me in? What is it? Where can I get it?

Joyce Traub

Thanks so much for all this information. I especially appreciated your explanation of the rule of the thirds. I often saw it mentioned but never had it explained to me. Thanks for all that you share. You card is adorable too.


What a great story and a beautiful card! TFS!

I LOVE your card!!! And thanks for the info on the backgrounders, I appreciate the FYI...good to know!
You are so helpful with every aspect of stamping! Have a wonderful time at CHA and come home with MORE fun stuff for us! :D

Rose Ann

Wow...I love what you did with that backgrounder...and I love your beautiful card!!


I love the watercolor technique on the background. Amazingly I would never have thought to do this with a background stamp. A "duh" moment. Love that, thanks for sharing.


I totally agree with you that CHF backgrounders are so incredibly well made- esp. b/c I like the unmounted version- you can really tell how great the quality is...I have a handful and love them!

I love CHF! I knew some of their history, but I didn't know about the Backgrounders and Stampin' Up. I love your company, too. You compliment each other. Have fun at CHA.


Wonderful card--thanks for all the details!

Oh, you will have so much fun at CHA! I will bet thinking of you--I live so close but they won't let me in without a ticket, LOL!

Thank you so much for the "history lesson" and explaining more about how quality rubber stamps are made. I fully intend to purchase "several" backgrounders! I'm a background junkie-I love them because they're so versatile! Looking forward to hearing about all the new "stuff" at CHA, and especially looking forward to hearing more tips and techniques from you! Thanks a bunch!

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed this post. I finally "broke down" and purchased some of the CHF backgrounder stamps just a few weeks before you began carrying them in your store (they were having a sale *wink*.) It was love-at-first-stamp! So the history behind these wonderful stamps is neat to know. I've done a similar technique with single image stamps but now it's a must-try with my backgrounders. Your inspiration is appreciated, as always!


TFS all the great information, I especially like knowing about the 2/3 rule since I'm very symmetrical. I love asymmetry, odd numbers for groupings etc, but I struggle with the cards. TFS and giving so much. Have a wonderful trip full of fun and learning.

Wonderful card! Who knew carrots could be so fun! I tried your technique on stamping backgrounds. It worked like a charm! Thanks for your tutorials!
