Howdy, friends! I hope you are having a most excellent week and you’re having some amazing weather where you are! Our weather here in southwestern Colorado is absolutely gorgeous and I have no complaints! I’ve popped in this morning with a Prickley Pear Stamps sample to share that I created with the new Chicken Wire Background stamp! Just as I did a couple weeks ago with the Woodgrain Background stamp, I created a card that’s not chicken-related to show how versatile this background stamp is as well! I used several Spellbinders Beauty Is Everywhere Die Cut Shapes along with a few Darice white flat-back pearls to make this background come to life!
I cut a standard A2 size side-folding landscape card base from 110# Solar White cardstock along with layering panels from Stampin’ Up Watermelon Wonder cardstock, GKD Charcoal Brown cardstock and 80# Solar White cardstock. I cut the white layering panel with a My Favorite Things Stitched Rectangle STAX Die-namics die and then stamped the chicken wire background in Catherine Pooler Do-Si-Do ink. I stamped the chicken wire background again in Versamark over top of the pink ink and heat embossed it with Hero Arts Sparkle embossing powder. I adhered all the panels to the card base and then adhered the die cuts. The finishing touch was adding a few white flat-back pearls.
And one more look… I’m totally smitten with this card! I love the versatility of this chicken wire background stamp!
