Ways to Use Pattern Paper

Talk about a perfect challenge - use pattern papers!  To make this one from Splitcoast (WT267) a little more of a challenge, I made myself...
  • select pattern papers from different paper collections so they didn't automatically coordinate.
  • select papers that did not have the same colors as any of the other papers
This made it tough for me because I get hung up on what needs to 'match.'  Yet another of the Joys of Papercrafting is you get to play with patterns and try stuff out without a huge time or money investment.  I'm pretty happy with the results of this one.

Project Notes:
  • The design is CASEd from June 2010's Scrapbooks Etc. magazine.  They have a feature on cards.  Check it out, there are some good designs.
  • Rub-ons help fit a sentiment into a small space on the scalloped paper.
  • The ribbon is cut in half.  There will details on saving ribbon in next week's TIPsy Tuesday.
Here's another with just a couple of changes...

Ingredients:  DSP:  Nook and Pantry by Basic Grey, Thrift Shop by Oct Afternoon, 365 Degrees by Pink Paislee
Cardstock:  Kraft, Choc Chip by SU!
Rub-ons by SU!
Marker:  Chocolate Chip
