Diamond Wallpaper Stamping

Papertrey Ink has a tutorial about making your own background using stamps for Make It Monday #174.  It looked cool so I decided to try it out.  My first couple of tries were duds!  I was rushing things so the diamonds were super crooked.  I was more careful with this one and I am pretty happy with how it turned out. I popped up the Chrysler Building, which is my favorite building in NYC.  I love that Art Deco look.

All the stamps used are from City Scene by Papertrey Ink,  which I was happy to finally use!  Oh, except the sentiment.   That's from their Road Trip stamp set.

My husband and I live near the NYC so I am going to use this card to ask him out on a date.  Of course, he will say yes ;-)


  1. Lori, love your take on the MIM!

  2. What a cute idea to use this set! I have that stamp set too, but never thought about using the road to make the diamond pattern...great job!! :0) Have fun on your date!

  3. Outstanding!! I just love the image you used to make your background! Simply ingenious : )


  4. Wonderful card and I love that you made the background! TFS

  5. I really love this card! Using the road! (I may have to copy that idea). And using the trees like that.


Thank you for stopping by :)
