Creating Your Own Patterned Paper

Hi everyone! Thanks for coming by to Lawnscaping Challenge blog. It's me, Marina, here again to share with you my last individual post of the year. But there will be a few more Lawnscaping Challenges for the year so catch me and my teammate over at the Lawnscaping Facebook Page.

I'm featuring the Love You a Latte stamp set, the stitched rectangle die and stitched journaling card die by Lawn Fawn. I will show you how to make your own patterned paper.

You can always stamp your choice of images individually but to save time, you can always arrange the images you'd like to use and stick it to your stamping block like I did, in the photo below.

As you can see, we those four images pre-mounted on my block, I can just go on and stamp them repeatedly around the front of my card. I love to stamp some of the parts off the page so that it will look like it's continuous and I've just cut down from a bigger piece of patterned paper.

Don't worry about those empty space because you can take those images individually and fill up the empty space or, you can take those tiny images in the stamp set to fill up the space.

This is my finished card :) 

Hope you've enjoyed my card today and give this technique a try. And don't forget to subscribe to the Lawnscaping blog and Facebook page. And also, to stop by my blog for more ideas!
