Video: Repetitive Stamping for DIY Pattern Paper

by Patricia Roebuck

Repetitive Stamping with Simple Shapes. By @paroe - Stamps @AltenewHello!  I had so much fun and was so inspired by the Simple Shapes stamps, that I wanted to try out repetitive patterns and create my own pattern paper.  You can see my first layout with these stamps here.  For this layout, I went with brighter colors of ink:  Peach Perfect, Warm Sunshine, and Coral Berry.  And a few soft and neutral colors:  Moon Rock, Soft Lilac, and Frayed Leaf.

Repetitive Stamping with Simple Shapes. By @paroe - Stamps @AltenewI started with a plain piece of white cardstock and started stamping different designs wide enough to cut them into 2″ squares to place as a grid on my layout.  Once the squares and my photos were in place, I stamped my title, subtitle, and the fish from the Ori Kami stamp set.  I used the matching die to cut the fish out.
