Sending Hugs with Easy to Make Patterned Paper

Hey friends.....Michelle with you today and sharing a super easy way to make some floral background paper.  This makes a super quick and gorgeous card, when you are in a bind and are short for time.  Shall we get started?

For my background I did an easy smooshed background using LIndys Gang Magical powders and Lunar Paste.Pretty much just mixed them together and took my watercolour paper directly to them on my work surface, as you would if you were using distress inks or watercolours.  It's such a fun technique!  I set this aside to allow it fully dry for a day.

I knew exactly what i wanted to do with this background and that was to turn it into a simple floral patterned paper.  I grabbed the Thanks Bunches Stamp Set and inked up part of the stamp using Black Archival Ink and stamped it in each of the 4 corners, rotating it as I went from 1 to the other.  I tried to get it a bit different in each corner, so as not to have the exact same floral image all around.  A few gold splatters were added to it, to add a little something extra.

Of course I wanted to keep as much of the background showing as possible, so for the sentiment I did the Eclipse die cutting technique.  I diecut the main hugs from the background using the Meraki Moments Hugs Para-Dies and then then shadow part of it from black cardstock.  I adhered the black diecut over where the more intricate Hugs was diecut and then added the other one on top, being sure to add in all the smaller pieces to fill in the holes in the g, to keep the look seamless.  The smaller sub-sentiment was heat embossed in gold on black cardstock from the Hugs Stamp Set.

And there you have it!  A super easy and quick way to make a gorgeous floral patterned paper. Your stamps can be used in so many different ways, and not just as a focal point and coloured. Thank you so much for stopping by today and I hope that I have helped to inspire you in some small way.

I wish you all the most wonderful and crafty day and until next time,  Michelle :)
