BC262: Background Papers

Today over at Blogger's Challenge we are creating our own background papers.  As much as I love to use patterned papers, I also love to make my own patterned papers to use.

For my first card I created my background using the Pattern2Love stamp from The {Stamps} of Life.  Although you can't tell too well with this picture, I did add some true blue stickles onto my pattern and my tabs were created out of paper.  I love this color combination!

Card details: 
Stamps: Pattern2Love and Phrases2Say from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock: Kraft Like a Rockstar, Perfect Little Black Dress, Simply Blue-tiful from Clear & Simple Stamps
Inks: Simply Blue-tiful and Perfect Little Black Dress
Embellishments: True Blue stickles

For my second card I only used a small strip of patterned paper using the same stamp set as above.   This was a new color combination for me to use the purples and the turquoise together but I think it's one of my favorites right now.

Card details: 
Stamps: Pattern2Love and Swirls4words from The {Stamps} of Life
Cardstock:Tempting Turquoise, Perfect Plum, Lavendar Moon
Inks: Lavendar Moon, Perfect Plum
Embellishments: Rounded Tab punch, pearl, embossed scallop punch

Come join us at Blogger's Challenge this week and show us your background papers!  Please link directly to your creation.

Love the BG, looks wonderful on the Kraft as well as the lighter panel! The added stickles make the kraft panel pop!

COOL background paper girl. I am never really good at lining up large stamps but I think I will try this on for size today. Love the little girl card too....

Have a wonderful weekend.

Both these cards are really nice. I love the pattern on the 1st card and the sparkle is really a great touch.
