Little Tangles Challenge #22 – Make your Own Pattern Paper

Hello everyone!

When I saw the requirements for Challenge #22 over at Little Tangles, I knew it was one that I definitely wanted to take part in – not sure if you’ve noticed, but I quite like making up my own backgrounds and patterns from all the stamps that I own 😉

I used the Neat and Tangled Sunburst stamp again (I know, I used it on the last challenge too, but what I can tell you? There’s so many things you can do with this image!). Here’s my card:

I repeat stamped the Sunburst image first in Peeled Paint Distress Ink across a 12×12 inch piece of white cardstock one way, rotated the stamp and went again with Festive Berries over the previous impressions…here’s a step by step guide:

I’m thinking this could work with a lot of stamps, and you could have so much fun coming up with lots of different patterns – I know I did! Once I’d stamped the whole of my cardstock with the pattern, I cut off a small panel for my card. I wanted a pop ‘o’ black on all that red and green, so I took all three stars from the Sparkle & Shine set and stamped them randomly.

I thought there was something missing, so I went in with a few black paint splatters for added effect – kinda cool, even though you do get a bit messy doing it! I adhered the panel straight down onto the card base leaving a white trim on either side.

The sentiment comes from the My Favorite Things Seasonal Sentiments set – I stamped it on another piece of white cardstock, and die-cut a Spellbinders Labels 20. I trimmed the label into three parts and foam mounted to my card base. Finally, I embellished with some sequins and gemstone…

Thanks for looking 😉

    Oh my gosh! First of all, I LOVE YOUR BACKGROUND on this card! WOW! I think I may have to buy that stamp (even though I’m a Stampin’ Up demo, LOL). Second, I love your step by step photos. How do you do those? That’s so cool and makes perfect sense on how to create that background by looking at those photos. And Third, thank you so much for visiting my blog and commenting on my faux stitching. I really didn’t think that stitching would could since I used a combination of dots and lines, so I really appreciate your kind comment on my card. HUGS! 🙂 Janis
