Hello Friend With Wood Words

I have been having a lot of fun lately with the wood grain papers now available.  There are dark shades, stacks of wood and light shades like you see here today.  I’ll have another completely different style of card using the wood grain papers later this week, don’t forget to check it out.  


  • I cased this card from Cindy Elam at  Hearts Delights Cards  and it goes to show that you don’t have to do everything the same, or have all the same items in your supplies.  For example, Cindy used the Hardwood background stamp and used a lighter color scheme.  I saw her card, saved it to my Card Inspiration Pinterest board and then several weeks later ended up making it, but I didn’t actually refer to her card.  I just ‘remembered’ her card and created it in my own way.
  • Yes you can, and should, stamp directly onto Designer Series Paper (DSP). This card just wouldn’t be as cute if I had stamped the florals on whisper white.  I stamped directly with Basic Black then colored in the open roses with my Real Red marker.  I used Circle punches for the rooster and background layer.

Thanks for visiting and Happy Stamping.
