Stamping Plus a Touch of Pattern: Day 3

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…


We’re so glad our bold brushstroke stamp, 40-413 La Fleur Rouge, found it’s way into Elizabeth’s hands for today’s stamped project.



How-To: Elizabeth began by stamping her bold brushstroke poinsettias, 40-413 La Fleur Rouge, by inking them using water soluble markers, lightly misting, and pressing her stamp onto white cardstock.  With bold red flowers, only a small “touch of pattern” was needed to finish this design.  Elizabeth used a strip of paper from our designer paper pad, 80-001 Madison, along the left hand side of her card.  To keep this pattern from overwhelming her stamped panel, she also added a small strip of solid green cardstock between the pattern paper and the stamped panel.  What a lovely border for her card!

    yes, this is a lovely card and the small strip of solid color on the border does separate the pattern paper from the stamped image nicely.

    Another card to pin–such a classic beauty, Elizabeth! I have that paper pad & now I’m going to use that print on some Christmas cards–love the look with the poinsettias! In spite of having about a million Christmas stamps, I think Season’s Gifts needs to be at my house!

    Beautiful card….I made one that was similar recently and will definitely make another. I used a PB poinsettia stamp, too! Thanks for the great inspiration.
