Creation Station Got Your Back Blog Hop

 Happy First Sunday of July!! I hope those of you in the United States had a fabulous holiday this week! We were blessed to have Troy's cousin and kids stop in on their way to the Grand Canyon from Iowa! Our kids have such an amazing time with them. I have been a bit on the down low lately, with last weeks grueling schedule and company coming over this week, I had to focus on my domestic duties...

Today I am creating with the Creation Station Design Team. We creating with the "Got Your Back" theme! The idea is to showcase the background stamps in the catalog! I took the opportunity to mix up two for you! Let me show you what I have created!

This card started in a bit of a different way! I had been working on swaps and had some extra layers of Crumb Cake card stock that had been stamped with Soft Suede ink using the Birch back ground stamp! Today I took it a bit further by running it through with my Pinewood Planks embossing folder to add some texture! I also had a piece of Very Vanilla stamped with Soft Suede ink using the All Wired up background stamp. If you have the chicken wire of years ago, don't look at this and say "I already have it..." It is much smaller in scale compared to the old one! So you do NEED it! After adhering this to the wood, I added this to Pear Pizzazz, I had a bugger of time getting it straight, so I rolled with the wonky layer idea! My To A Wild Rose Flower is stamped twice with Petal Pink ink and has a Soft Suede outline. I chose to use Pear Pizzazz for the leaves. A bit of Linen Thread was the only thing suitable for this card. A Stampin' Emboss Copper sentiment and some of the new Designer Elements were just what this card needed to be finished off!
