Stampin' Up! Color & Contour ~ Custom Patterned Paper


All the pretty patterned paper is one of my favorite things about paper crafting.  In the past, I have even, possibly, hoarded my beautiful patterned paper a little.  I just didn't want to waste it, and I didn't want to run out of it.  Now I know better.  I might not always be able to purchase the exact same patterned paper, but I will always be able to purchase new patterned paper, and it's much better to USE my paper than to hide it on a shelf or in a cabinet.  PLUS, now I now I can stamp my own beautiful patterned paper!

This fun patterned paper was stamped using Color & Contour stamps with Starry Sky, Orchid Oasis and Parakeet Party inks.  I love that I can make pretty paper backgrounds in whatever color scheme fits my mood and card for the day!  To make this at home, first stamp the flowers, then go back and fill in the white spaces with the splatter stamp.

Inside this card, I finished out the sentiment and added a simple flower bud.  I fussy cut the bud after stamping it, then glued it inside the card.  But you can also just stamp it in your card so you don't have to fussy cut and glue. 

Thank you for visiting my blog today.
Happy Stamping!
