Inspired by Ange – Hardwood Background Stamp

If you’ve had time to make it through all 25 blog hop posts, then you’ve done better than me.  I’m still slowly getting around – between toddler and baby needs (think endless food demands, lots of toilet trips and reading more books than you’d find in a small library!).

One of the wonderful blogs I have been to is by Ange Harders who highlighted the Hardwood Background Stamp.  Now, I almost didn’t buy this in my big Occasions catalogue order.  In fact it could have been the last thing I added.  But, after seeing what Ange created, I’m so glad it is part of my collection.  Of all the projects Ange used the background stamp for, my favourite was her use of the stamp as a fence.  By cutting it into segments and adding marker or sponged ink to add definition, it becomes an awesome wood fence.  Perfect for a punch art addict like me.  Desperate to try it out, I mounted my stamp and created this card:

I’m sure this style of fence will pop up in my designs many more times!  I just love Stampin’ Up! – don’t you!?! Kelly x
