Today I’m sharing my challenge of STAMPING PATTERNS!  I’ve created several PL cards featuring different ways to use stamps and create various patterns.

KS1

You can use linear stamps (“Let’s Eat”) to create a lined pattern on a card.  Slightly shifting alignment adds variety and inverting the image adds even more!

Repeating patterns can be used with one stamp (Love card) or by combining stamps (awesome/right now card) to create varied looks.  Using a clear stamp block allows you to see exactly where you’re placing the clear acrylic stamps and makes lining them up easy.

KS2

Another option for stamping in patterns is to essentially create a journaling card by mixing stamps (Today Rocked).  By changing the color of “Today” and centering it, the reader sees this first.  Then the surrounding “Rocked” pattern links Today and describes the experience!

KS3

The “Read” card is another example of stamping in patterns.  I repeatedly stamped the outline Read all over the card and then colored in the center word.  You could combine this method with the previous and color in the center “Read” word, but stamp “More” all around it as another option.  The message is then, Read more!!

Thanks again everyone for stopping by to check out my stamping technique.  I challenge you to try it for yourself and link up your project using the link at the bottom of this post.  Happy National Scrapbook Day!

  1. Uh these are amazing! I am so going to have to make some of my own. The designer and I never really thought to just make my own when I struggle to find the perfect card. An inspiration Jen!
