Hello Spring … and fellow Unies! Welcome to our April Blog Hop. This month our focus is a favorite of mine… Patterned Paper! Enjoy the hop!
Before I start, I wanted to congratulate Becca Yarhling for winning a Unity stamp set for participating in last month’s blog hop! Please message me your address and I’ll get out your package in the next week or so! Thanks for hopping with us last month!
So, to start off, I just had to use a leftover piece of “That” famous beautiful patterned paper we all picked up over a year ago. I had picked it up and sent out small pieces of it to my old ATC group for fun. Well… I found a leftover piece I never used while cleaning out my supplies. For this card I paired it with Unity’s You Grow Girl kit. I stamped and watercolored one of the plants in similar tones and found som leftover striped papers that matched beautifully. To complete the card, I added string and sequins.
For the second card, I used a metallic gold patterned paper and combined it with Unity’s A Lovely Message kit. I embossed both the image and sentiment and then watercolored the image with similar colors. I also added metallic gold paint to the sign. To complete this card, I added gold thread and and gold colored crystals.
Hope you enjoyed this use of patterned paper and that it inspires you to pull yours out! Thanks for stopping by! Now on to the rest of the hop…
