Hello and Happy 4th of July, Altenew friends! This is Virginia. I have three fun projects to share with one of our brilliant paper packs “Blushing Blooms”. This April, I did the Altenew “Make & Take” at our ScrapFest here in Ontario, Canada. I have quite a lot of paper strips leftover from the craft show. I decided that this is a good chance to challenge myself to make good use of the gorgeous paper strips. So here we go!
I am using “Forever in Love Stamp& Die Bundle” for all of the projects. This is a great way to combine stamps, dies, and patterned paper to create a set of cards.
First, I used the strips of paper to create a unique background. Each piece of paper is curated to be matching within each collection. Therefore, it is safe to mix them up.
I adhered the paper strips with Altenew Glue Tape onto a piece of copy paper. I then stamped the “Forever in Love” image in Fresh Leaf Crisp Dye Ink. The Sentiment Strips Stamp Set provides the perfect sentiment.
My next card was also created in a similar manner as the first. This time, I used the smallest Nesting Labels Die Set to create the sentiment banner.
This was such a fun card to make. All you need is to start with the criss-cross design and gradually build your pattern. I also split the floral image to show off the paper-woven background.
I hope that you like my fun and easy projects with patterned paper. Perhaps you want to go and play with your stamps and patterned paper after this?
