Pattern Stamping...

Hi! One of my favourite techniques is creating my own 'pattern paper' by stamping. I recently taught this technique and wanted to share it on my blog. 

I started with a piece of white cardstock. I used the Freehand Florals stamp set by Wplus9 and Memento dewdrop inks to create a lovely background. Once the stamping was done, I used three of the largest Stitched Rectangle dies by DCAM to cut my panel. I adhered the pieces back on a thin sheet of scrap paper cut slightly smaller than my panel. I just love the gorgeous texture that the die-cutting adds to the background. I adhered the panel to a bright blue card base.

The sentiment is from Lil' Inker. I cut it out of both dark and light blue papers and adhered the two slightly off-set. Here is a closer look at the sentiment.

Initially, I had planned to add a companion sentiment or some sequins to the card. But I really liked the card without any more additions. Since the background is busy, I decided to keep rest of the card very simple. Here is another look at the card.

I hope you liked my card and I look forward to hearing from you.
