Do you love striped cards & paper? We can’t seem to get enough so we are delighted to have our sparkly EH Design Ambassador Carissa Wiley here today to share how to create DIY striped patterned paper!
Today I’m going to show you a simple stamped card featuring a beautiful DIY patterned paper. I love to use the Painted Stripes stamps from the Essentials By Ellen line to create my own custom striped pattered paper. I’m a sucker for a good stripe! And I prefer this over a single, large background stamp, because I can easily customize the colors and patterns to suit my project.
This custom patterned paper background is the perfect colorful backdrop for bold stamped images. I used the Mondo Wildflowers stamp set directly over the top of my stamped stripes.
To add dimension and draw the eye to the floral focal images, I die cut the Mondo Wildflowers using the coordinating die set and popped it up using foam tape.
I’ll walk you through the creation of this card in today’s video tutorial, so be sure to check it out. I’ll give you some tips and tricks for stamping your own patterned paper as well.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you’ve been inspired to created your own patterned paper! Until next time, I hope you have a fabulous day!
XOXO, Carissa Wiley
