So I don't have that many Stampingbella stamps...

YET!

But I love doing challenges and challenging myself make do with what I have.

and

Stampingbella provided the "inspiration Photo" and Stamping Paper and Ink provided the "natural elements" idea for the wood!
I cut the base card of white card stock and ran it through the BigKick with the Cuttlebug "chicken wire" embossing folder.
Using two rectangle dies, not sure of the company, I cut out the frame from a piece of wood patterned paper from DCWV Autumn Leaves mini stack.
Using the smaller of the rectangular dies I cut out the front of the base card.
I glued the frame to the opening.
Inside the card I layered a piece of kraft card stock.
With another piece of white card stock I stamped the Stampingbella "budding chick" with StazOn timber brown ink, then colored it using Prisma colored pencils.
I trimmed out the chick and flower only and attached it with glue to the front of the frame.

    1. The fun part is using part of a stamp instead of the whole thing.
