To create a simple background you just need one stamp and some ink (this can be dye ink or pigment ink, but remember that pigment ink won't dry on gloss card/paper). Just ink up the stamp and then, without reinking, stamp about 4 images randomly around your paper. Make sure that some of the images "fall off" the edges of the paper as this gives it a more professional look. Also make sure that you turn the stamp so that you stamp the image in different directions.
