Hello there!  Happy Thursday!

Today’s post is about stamps, ink and patterned paper.  I enjoy creating cards with patterned paper and I think most of you do, as well.  The first Sale-A-Braion of 2021 is ending on Sunday.  I’m taking this opportunity to share as much of the beautiful Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration as possible.

I designed this card with a pattern from the Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. This patterned paper is a simple, casual and fun plaid in Poppy Parade and Basic White.  I chose Pacific Point as an accent color.  The Corals and Blues mix well together and give this design a little interest.

  • On a Basic White A-2 top fold card base, I added layers of Poppy Parade cardstock and patterned paper.
  • I die cut a stitched rectangle from Basic White cardstock.
  • This is the layer for your sentiment and flower cluster.
  • The fussy cut, Soft Suede stamped flower cluster is from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.
  • The stamped flowers are covered with punched flowers from the patterned paper using the Strawberry Builder Punch.  This punch perfectly cuts the flowers.  I attached the punched flowers over the stamped flowers with  Mini Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment, from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set, is stamped with Pacific Point ink.

Here’s a tip for you: 

  • I colored the white Baker’s Twine bow with the Light Night of Navy Stampin’ Blend.
  • Unravel your anticipated amount of White Baker’s Twine onto a plain sheet of copy paper or any other scrap paper you have on hand.
  • Hold one end of the twine and lightly run the brush tip of the Blend over the twine slightly rolling the twine back and forth.
  • You’ll get the feel of the ink application. Once you do, your coloring will be quick.
  • Continue shading the twine until you have your desired shade.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card.

So, find a casual piece of patterned paper, add it to a few layers, attach a stitched rectangle, color some Baker’s Twine and create a Sweet Strawberry hello!

…the only limitation is your imagination!
