Blog Hop: Inspired by Pattern Paper with the Be Inspired Team

Sarah Berry Stampin’ Up! UK Independent Demonstrator | Blog Hop: Inspired by Pattern Paper with the Be Inspired Team

Be Inspired Design Team Blog Hop Sarah Berry Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator

Hello everyone, today we are focusing our blog hop theme on Pattern Paper. We’ve chosen this theme because Stampin’ Up! has the wonderful Designer Series Paper Sale on during the month of October. For my pattern paper, I’ve chosen the Wood Textures Paper Stack.

I’ve taken some of the Thick Whisper White card stock and cut and scored into a folded card. I measured the card front which was 14.8 x 10.5cm and completely covered it with a sheet of paper cut to size. I know I’ve not exactly made anything too creative with the pattern paper here, but I honestly do not think you need to with this particular pattern paper. It’s quite impressive just left alone as a complimenting background on my Christmas tree card.

The tree is from the Season Like Christmas stamp set. I’ve added heat embossing on the card, there’s a stamp which is little blobs so I made them white like snow. I’ve also heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of whisper white card, then sponged it with Soft Suede ink.

Thank you for visiting today, next up is my lovely, Louise Sharp in Australia!
