SAF 2015: Patterns Challenge

The second challenge for Stamp-a-faire 2015 is all about patterns. Select a card sketch to use it as a pattern to make a card. I made two cards today to show you how you can use a pattern in two different ways.

My first card shows how you can take a pattern and make it your own. It is not an exact rendition of the card sketch, but an inspiration. Instead of using flowers, I chose apples and only applied them to one side of the top and bottom portion of the center panel. I also did not use the exact width dimensions for the center panel. It is adjusted to fit the width of the stamp I chose for this card.

I stamped the chevron parts, then added the stamped teachers/open minds parts. I hand cut the center panel.

Next, I stamped and hand cut the pencil, then added it to the center panel. Last, I stamped the apples and added them to the panel.

The background panel is stamped with grey apples for a subtle pattern. I added it on an A2 card base with polka dotted patterned paper.

This card is a more literal design from the sketch. You can use any border stamps and hand cut the outer shape to replicate the design. I used Boutique Borders, but Over Under Easy also has lots of border stamps you could use on the center panel.

After stamping the sentiment and borders, I hand cut the decorative edge around the border. Next, I die cut the flowers from felt and added them to the patterned paper panel. Last, I added the center panel.
