Design Team Inspiration - Stamping on Patterned Paper

Hello Uniko Studio Fans!!

Nicki here bringing you some Design Team Inspiration! The theme today is Stamping on Patterned Paper. It's really a simple technique and it can really add some interest to your cards!

Here are the supplies I used for this card....nothing out of the ordinary!

I started off by cutting a piece of patterned paper slightly smaller than the card base (width). Then, using the Wonderful Washi stamp set, I stamped directly onto the paper using two different ink colors, and three washi patterns. A thin strip of black cardstock was placed next to the paper, and both were adhered to the card base.

Not only did I stamp with ink on the patterned paper, but I also heat embossed the polka dot birthday label with glittery embossing powder. It's such a pretty look...see the image below for a close up!

I then mounted the birthday label to a piece of black cardstock, and adhered it to the card (slightly hanging off the edge) using foam tape. That's it! A simple technique can create a very interesting look!

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope I have inspired you to dig out that patterned paper you've been stashing away, and put it to use! :)
