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!
