Happy Birthday - Stamping On Pattern Paper

One thing I always forget about is stamping on patterned paper. I think it can give such a nice subtle classy look to a card. I found this layout on Pintrest a few weeks ago and went through my stamps to find something that would work.

Supplies Used:
Stampin Up - Front image/sentiment
Sugarloaf Stamp - Inside Sentiment
K & Co. Patterned Paper
Various Cardstock
Black Memento Ink
Colorbox Chalk Ink
3/8" Grosgrain Ribbon

The inside sentiment is one I came across when I was reorganizing my stamps, oh by the way I am working on cataloging my stamps now and will post later, and thought it would work for this card. I chose the colors because I thought it would work for a man as well, even with the ribbon and it was more classy looking than most of the cutsie cards I make.

I cut the layered the strips of paper similar to the one I saw on Pintrest and the multi-layers seem to work well together and while the birthday sentiment is small the layers focus the eye to it *okie thinks that sounded so professionally artisty like*. The stamp of the flowers went below the strip across so to avoid having the image show at the bottom of the strip I laid a piece of paper across the pattern cardstock where I didn't want the image to stamp.

 Okay that's all I have for you today. I gotta go get dressed and get ready to head up to my aunt's house in Seminole. My cousin Betty Lou is wanting to make a big dinner for everyone and I am sure we will have a house full. I called my sister yesterday morning and told her that she needed to go to Aunt Betty's so her and her husband will be out there as well. I also have to stop by Linda's and get some punches she ordered for me. Busy, busy day....but what a lovely way to spend a Sunday!!


  1.'ve inspired me once again. Love the effect of the stamp on patterned paper and what a great way to get more use of both the stamp and the paper!

  2. Lovely card. Have to try stamping on patterned paper too. TFS

  6. Okay, I just love to read your blog (get a few laughs and inspiration too), plus I'm the weird one lately who has asked so many questions about your stamp unmounting! Well, come to find out, I live in Washington (I kinda knew that for awhile now) but I just realized you live south a an hour or so from my VERY best friend in the world! All ironic -- that's what the WWW will do for us, I guess. Have a great day and LOVE your card!!!


  7. Love this look. I will have to try this technique for sure. Loves very distinguised.

  8. I totally forget that technique, too. You would think a lazy stamper like me would remember a labor-saving trick like that.
    Hey, I'm unmounting my stamps and some of the odd brand foam won't come off. Any tricks?
    Have a great week!

  9. Love this card/technique. I even have some of this beautiful paper to try it on (and a stamp that will work perfectly!)

    Have a great cruise… wish I were going along!!
