Five Ways With…Patterned Paper | Video Tutorial With Tasha

posted in: Blog, Tasha 0

Hey Crafty People!

It’s Tasha here, and it has been a hot minute since I was last up on the blog!! I’m super happy to be back and starting my brand new monthly video tutorial ‘Five Ways With…’

Each month I will be featuring a new topic and sharing five ways to create beautiful cards.

(Unfortunately, Covid caught me so this is actually March’s monthly tutorial. 🤦🏻‍♀️)

 

Five Ways With… Patterned Paper Video Tutorial

Card 1 – Create An Abstract Scene

blank

For this card, I added strips of contrasting papers, to create an abstract scene for my little hippo to be peeking out from.

I like to use a busy pattern with a simpler one, as it creates a nice juxtaposition and interest.
I used the new thick foam tape to add more dimension behind the second strip of paper, just because I like it!!!

Card 2 – Stamp On It

I love stamping images onto patterned paper, it’s a fun way to add interest to your design…plus, you don’t need to colour! Win-win! 😂🙈

I used three different patterns, one for each of my doll images, and popped them up on some foam tape.
I stamped a sentiment from the set, along with some little leafy images.

Card 3 – Embrace The Pattern

Sometimes, the paper is just so gorgeous that it deserves to have the total spotlight!!!

So that’s what I did here; I added a simple white strip with a gorgeous bold sentiment.
One thing that I love about CP papers is that they tell you which of your inks will work great with them…so it is so easy to choose which ones to use!

Card 4 – Clean & Simple With Strip

For this card, I sort of did the opposite of the last card by adding a small strip of visible pattern whilst keeping the rest of the card very clean & simple.

Card 5 – Use A Cover Plate Die

I absolutely LOVE using cover dies. I love the way the busy patterned paper and patterned cover die look with each other!
Mixing it up with some more neutral papers gives the eye somewhere to rest upon.

The die cut sentiment could have easily got lost in all that business, so I stack up several of them and I backed it with vellum.
This helps the sentiment hold its own against the background.
