5 Ways to Use Patterned Paper -- Challenge Reminder
by Rebecca Keppel

Rebecca keppel poppystamps patterned paper challenge

This month's challenge is Patterned Paper Please! Your challenge is to use patterned paper along with at least one Poppystamps stamp or die. Easy peasy, right? Do you need a little inspiration? Well, this month, I played along with the challenge and came up with my top 5 favorite ways to use patterned paper on cards. First, is to use up those scraps and create a rainbow of patterned paper strips.

Or, die cut and use repetitive shapes as a design element for your card.

Using layers and creating your own embellishments is a great way to stretch your dies. Depending on the patterned paper you choose, you could create a card for any theme or recipient!

I love stamping on patterned paper too! Try stamping a large image on a small pattern to create colorful designs without any coloring!

Do you have a patterned paper you love, but it seems too bold to incorporate into a card? Try placing it behind vellum for a softer look!

Hi Rebecca, What a glorious way to use up our patterned papers, and a great reminder, I am guilty of not using up my leftover papers, they get put in a container to use another time, then I forget all about them and use another full sheet of paper. Thank you for these gorgeous creations.
Lots of love from Patricia xx

Such great examples, I really love the square frames in all different patterns, so cool!
