Zebra Background Stamp Ideas

Darkroom Door - Saturday, October 15, 2016

Hi crafty folk! It's Teresa Abajo here. Isn't it wonderful when your favourite stamp company comes up with a stamp you've been wanting for aaaaages? Ta - dah! I present the Zebra Background Stamp.

I don't know if I can put into words why I've wanted a zebra print for so long - something about it being bold, very recognisable, looks fantastic in black and white…..dunno, but I do know that I LOVE it!

Here it is on a very simple card - just black and white and silver glitter:


I stamped it with black ink, then layered it on silver glitter cardstock then on black cardstock. The word has been die-cut from glitter cardstock then layered onto foam to help it pop out from the background:


The stamped word comes from the Wild Things Quote stamp. This is a card that can be made as you're walking out the door to a party!

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Zebra Background Stamp
White, black and silver glitter cardstock
Archival Jet Black ink pad
Kaisercraft Decorative Dies Fabulous

The Zebra Background is bold and beautiful, and perfect for a card to offer encouragement:


I stamped the Zebra Background in black again, and layered it on black cardstock. I added a splash of pink with the doily, then stamped the elephant from another new set called African Trees in pink. A pink twine wreath and a couple of cirlces from the Simply Circles stamp set, together with the quote from the Wild Africa Vol 2 set complete the card. 

Supplies used:
Darkroom Door Zebra Background Stamp

White, black cardstock
Archival ink: Jet Black, Magenta Hue

The splash of pink got me thinking about how this stamp would look stamped in colour. I started with a pink tag:


and soon I had a little collection of handy gift tags:


Supplies used:

Lastly, I simply stamped the background onto some mustard coloured cardstock:


Doesn't it look like tiger print? I love that this background can be so versatile!
