Using inspiration For a Project

Hey all, it’s Amy here and I’m so excited to be a part of the Pattern Happy Design Team!  Today I’m sharing a card that was inspired by this month’s Pattern Happy Sketch Challenge:

It’s such a fun sketch, isn’t it?  Here’s how I was inspired:

Let’s start with the fun paper!  The black and white panel is from the Geofetti 6×6 Paper Pad and the lime green is from the Rainbows 6×6 Paper Pad.

I inked up the Best Bots Clear Stamp set and colored them with alcohol markers.  Love the coordinating Best Bots Die set!

I love that this is a gender/age neutral card, definite bonus points!

We hope that you join in the fun with the Sketch Challenge!

Thanks so much for stoppin’ by and I hope you have a fabulous week!

Using Stamps To Create A Repeating Pattern

Hi Friends! Its Carly and I am so excited to be on the Pattern Happy blog with my first post! Today I want to share with you 2 easy card designs using stamps to create patterns.

To get started you need stamps (I’m using the Best Bots set), a stamp positioning tool like the MISTI and your favorite inks.

Decide on a horizontal or vertical pattern and measure your stamp accordingly. For example, for the repeating robot pattern I wanted to create horizontal robot “stripes” so I measured the width of my image, about 1-1/4 inches. Then using the MISTI, I stamped one robot then moved my cardstock 1-1/4 inches to the left and stamped again.

Repeat and repeat.

Once I finished the pattern, I added a sentiment and to complete the cards, I stamped and colored cute little bots.

I used the same process to create a vertical pattern with the “I’M NUTS FOR YOU SENTIMENT”.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Hugs! Carly

First of the Month Super Sketch

Hi everyone, Laurel here.  Guess what?  Do you love sketches as much as I do?  Well…. we will be hosting a monthly sketch challenge right here on this blog.  Yep, a new sketch on the first of each month.

We would love for you to play along, now Pattern Happy products don’t have to be used, but we sure would be happy to see them.

Fun hey?

Here is what I created with the sketch.  I used the Rainbows paper pad along with a cut file – did you know we have cut files?! Yep, this one is the Sweet Sun cut file.  I used it to create a shaker box.

For the ‘hello’ sentiment I have used the Mini Greetings stamp set along with the Mini Containers die.
