Making your own

Last week I gave you a few examples of how to use pattern paper. You can always just make your own. A few different size stamps, a few different colors and a couple of minutes and you are done.
Here I used the Level 2 hostess stamp set "In the Spotlight". By stamping the images randomly on the cardstock you can easily create your own pattern paper. Start with the largest image first. Then the next size down. Finally fill in all the little areas left with the small stamps.

The images are stamped in several of the In Colors; Purely Pomegranate, Blue Bayou, Wild Wasabi, and Groovy Guava. I actually stamped a large sheet of this and then cut it into pieces to use on several cards. The image strip is matted on Purely Pomegranate and adhered to the Wild Wasabi card front. The sentiment from "Warm Words" is stamped in Basic Black. To add a little bling I used a two way glue pen to dot the center of each flower with Irridecent Ice Glitter.
