Stamping Plus a Touch of Pattern: Day 1

Looking for a fun way to incorporate pattern papers with your stamping? Designer Elizabeth Allan joins us this week with a feature to help you do just that. She’s grabbed her designer papers and favorite new cling stamps for a week of…


For her first creation, Elizabeth has featured Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-421 Tall Timbers. It looks lovely in turquoise!



How-To: Elizabeth began by stamping her background, 40-421 Tall Timbers, using turquoise ink.  The detail of the stamp shines, even with just basic colorful stamping. The lower portion of her background is white on white texture, created by simply scoring thick whitecardstock. Finally, her sentiment (30-316 Season’s Gifts) was stamped with black ink, mounted onto gold cardstock, leaving a thin border, and embellished with a snowflake die cut (51-080 Around Town) that cleverly looks just like a brad. And don’t forget that “touch of pattern!”  Using our designer paper pad, 80-001 Madison, Elizabeth added a small red border dividing her upper and lower background elements.

    LOVE the look of this card, Elizabeth! I would not have thought to use the gold mat & I love it! The little strip of red pp makes such a difference–thank you for the inspiration!

    This is so pretty and I love the detail on the card. The little hint of red from the printed paper is the perfect touch. Can’t wait to see more.
