Papertrey Ink April Blog Hop

Hello,
Today is Papertrey Ink’s Blog Hop and this month they have another inspiration photo:

Blog hop inspiration

 I drew my inspiration from the patterns and not the colors. Pink & blue are my least favorite colors, so I went instead with my favorite colors orange, green & purple.


I used several stamps to make the different patterns similar to the photo. I started with some cardstock strips and stamped one with a poke-a-dot pattern, one with a damask pattern, one with a zigzag (instead of the stripe in the photo, didn’t have a stripe stamp but I will to remedy this! lol ) and another in a flowery pattern.


 Once these were stamped I made my card from cardstock. Then I trimmed each strip so I could get each on my card. After I liked the placement and order, I stamped the sentiment in between two of the strips and wrapped some cream twine around the card. Last I inked the edges of each strip and adhered them to the card front.


Thanks for stopping by!
Dana
