Create Your Own Patterned Paper Tutorial

Good morning, Steph here with a great way to get more mileage from your stamps. Using the Oak and Maple Leaf Stamp Set 2, I created my own pattern paper.



Stamp 3 images on white cardstock, lining them up across the page. Using the grid lines on the mat helps align the stamps.


Once the 3 central images have been stamped, stamp additional images around them to fill in the background.


Ink the edges of the cardstock with the same ink and mat with brown cardstock.


Wrap ribbon around the center of the card and tie on the right side.


Use the Scalloped Oval Die and die cut white cardstock. Ink around the edges and adhere to the ribbon with foam adhesives for dimension. Stamp a sentiment, die cut the sentiment into an oval shape and add to the scalloped die with foam adhesives for additional dimension.

So play around with your stamps and see what you can create.
