I have 4 cards as homework for Pattern Play days 4 and 5, and this time, I incorporated several of my favorite challenges as well.
Day 4 was all about altering patterned paper. There are all sorts of things one can do to change up the look of patterned paper. My first card uses a very sweet stamp that I won from Serendipity called Three Dresses, and papers from Carta Bella Beautiful Moments. I used three different patterns from this pad to paper piece each of the dresses, and a 4th pattern for my card front. I used faux stitching (the only kind I know how to do) on my card front with the Lil Inkers Stitched Rectangles dies.
My next card uses papers from Lawn Fawn Bright Side, which I have altered by using Ranger Enamel Accents in black and white for all the flower centers, and Frosted Lace Stickles on all the flower stems. I am also entering this card in this week's Seize the Birthday sketch challenge and Simon Says Stamp challenge to make a spring card.
Moving on to Day 5--Paper Manipulation. My first card uses a paper quilting technique taught by Kristina. I think this is such a fun look, and will definitely be doing this again. My card uses papers from American Crafts Hip Hip Hooray, and follows the sketch from this week's Seize the Birthday challenge. There is no stamping at all on this card, as I used my new PTI Headline Alphabet and Numbers dies for the sentiment, so I am entering this card into this week's CAS-ual Friday's challenge of 'No Stamps'.
My last card uses a paper weaving technique, also taught on Day 5. I used more papers from Lawn Fawn Bright side and then cut my woven piece with a Tag Sale #6 die. I used my new Lawn Fawn dies to cut a birdie and some speech bubbles from the same paper pad. The challenge this week at Lawnscaping is Stitching, and I used two different types of stitching on this card--both faux, of course. The card base has faux stitching from a die, and the tag has faux stitching with a stamp from PTI Sew Simple Borders. I am also entering this card into the Speech Bubble Challenge in the Moxie Fab World, and the Simon Says Stamp challenge to create a spring card.
That's it for me today. Let me know if you have any questions about supplies. I'm too lazy to write them all up, and I have some more ideas for cards I want to make.
