Paper: Style Watch: Lush and Lovely Patterns

February 25, 2012

Valentine’s Day is behind us…but love is still in the air!

With all the cuteness and whimsy included in this year’s 1st Collection released from Clear and Simple Stamps, I decided to take the opportunity to create a pair of cards that are lush and lovely.

It’s no secret that I love damask patterns. I used this love as inspiration for today’s cards along with my love of building patterns.

I reached for two of the stamps included in the Love Cupid set and used them to build a beautiful damask-inspired pattern that is perfect for an anniversary or wedding card.

Until Later Loverlies,

Now for a quick tip:
Whenever I am creating a background pattern, I like to divide my cardstock into four equal quadrants. I use a pencil to lightly draw lines down the middle of the length and width of the cardstock.
I did just that this this card, then used my stamps to stamp evenly within each quadrant. This ensures that my stamping is even! 
For this particular pattern, I left an empty space down the middle, since I knew I’d be covering it with ribbon!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a fabulous Saturday!
