Belli Challenge #23 - Patterned Paper

This week's Belli Challenge is to use patterned paper on your cards or projects. I went crazy this weekend during a stamping spree with my friend Danita. We challenged each other to do this sketch and that sketch, and I had such a blast! Here's what I created for you:

Clean and simple, right? This came together so quickly. Just a couple of papers, and something to go down the middle, and voila! Paper is from Basic Grey's Lily Kate collection, and the shimmery flowers came from Michaels.

This one came out of nowhere for me. I wanted to play with my Glimmer Mists and I also had some of the Glimmer Mist chipboard. Hmmmmmmm...... putting the two together sounded like fun! I sprayed the looking glass with Deep Plum Glimmer Mist, and then aged it up a bit on the edges with Walnut Stain Distress ink. Paper is from Cosmo Cricket's Fleuriste.

This one is all Stampin Up! products. I used three different papers from the Wintergreen designer papers, and I stamped on the blue paper (swirls) and the green paper at the bottom (words). The stamps are all from Season of Joy - I just love this set. I'm crossing my fingers that it will be in the new catty in August. :-)

Pull your papers out and play with us!

Wow girl- you were busy! What are the white flowers on card one? They are soooo shimmery. Love that! And I love the little magnifying glass on card 2 - is that from a kit? Very cool! Thanks for playing in the Belli Challenges! Have a fabulous day!
