In a few hours we will be able to say, "TGIF"!!!! YEAH!!!!
Warning: this post will be overloaded with pictures! But I have a quick tutorial to share with you on how to create your own pattern papers. They can be so expensive after a while. It's also fun to make your own!
Sin City Scraps is holding a DT call. So I am sending this post to them.
Alot of the frames and label stamps today make for great background patterns. All stamps I used are from Papertrey Ink. The white cardstock is from Recollections and the kraft is PTI. I used Color Box inks in curry, peacock and chianti. Here is the finished card...
Trim your cardstock to your desired size. Mine is 4 1/2 x 6 inches. I used acrylic blocks with grids. This comes in handy when aligning stamps.
Place your first image in the center of the paper. This doesn't have to be exact.
Next, stamp your image on top and bottom...like so
This is where it can get a little tricky. That's why I like the grid blocks.
I like to line up the stamps with the grids as shown. The arrow points to the line I use to position. Just keep repeating this step and use the grids.
Next we add a new design and new color....
Use the same technique when adding this image...let the grid lines do the work.
Here is what this stamp adds to the design...
and the last stamp we add is a tiny flower...this one is pretty simple...
How pretty is that?! Any color and any style!
I am entering this into Moxie Fabs Tuesday Trigger.... Sweet Dreams and also Background Paper challenge.
