Week 3 with Fun Year Round


Tonight I am sharing my week 3 project as Melanie's guest Designer for "Fun Year Round".

This week I wanted to show you how you can use some of the fun shapes that are included in the stamp set so I created my own pattern paper and used it as a focal point for my card. I wanted to create a plaid grid to stamp my flower and circle images on so I used the line stamp in the set and the grid side of my Score Pal Mat. I used a piece of double sided re positional tape to tack down my paper, making sure to line up one of the corners with the lines on the Score Pal Mat.
I put the line stamp on a clear block with grid line, making sure the line stamped lined up with the lines on the block. To stamp the line, I lined up the grid line on the clear block with the grid line on my Score Pal Mat. Did you follow all that? I hope so! It may sound like it could take a lot of time but it literally took me 5 minutes to stamp the lines.
After I had my lines stamped, I stamped the images in the squares of the plaid grid.
I wish I would have used a couple darker shades of the pink and brown for the vertical lines because the shades I used did not show up as well as I wanted them to.

I made another card for Melanie to share on her blog tonight, I'd love for you to check it out.

Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you visit again soon!
