Stamping repeat pattern can make a stunning card but is not always easy to accomplish. Using techniques can help in making a success of your handmade card. There are so many ways to use our stamp pads, that it can get over complicated very easy. If you have ever wanted to create a background with a special look, then I hope you like this card. For today’s project, I am bringing attention to a different way to create an interesting background. This week at the What Will You Stamp challenge, we are stamping with Beetles & Bugs stamp set. Be sure to go over to the page and check out all of the Design Team’s cards this week and if you are up to a challenge…. add a photo of your card as well!
Stamping repeat pattern
Stamping repeat pattern
To create the look of bugs lined up in rows, I chose to line up squares instead of lining up the actual stamping. All stamping is contained on a scrap sheet of card stock which made it easy to die cut the stamped images. A secondary design is developed between the tiles, allowing the shadows to form lines in the design.
Spotlight a design
One of the stamped images stands out from the others. Choosing one image holding color allows the design to stand out yet remain a part of the pattern. Ensuring the colors still the color of the other images helps to bring the color design together.
