Playing with Patterned Paper.

Today I want to share a couple more cards I made with the Farm House Fair Skies papers from Scottie Crafts.

First up

 I used both sides of Weightless PP.  The flags were cut from the front and glued to the panel made from the reverse side of the PP.  I took some bakers twine and glued it along the top of the flags.  I made some little knots and glued them down.  I edged the panel with distress ink and added some eyelets in the corners.  I used a Hero Arts sentiment set (It's Your Day) to stamp my sentiments.  The panel was then added to a royal blue card base.

My second card

For this one I used Drifter and Celestial papers to cut the banners.   I used Spellbinders Eyelet Dies to cut a circle which I cut in half and layered on top of the banners.  Tied some brown scrappers twine around the top of the card and threaded it through the button.  I made this by glueing some of Drifter PP onto the back of a clear button.  Once it dried, I trimmed around it and filed it to get smooth.   I finished it off with gems around the eyelet circle and on the base card. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and is stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz ink.

I have to say I've had great fun using these Patterned Papers.  A few more cards to share that I've made.  These papers are 12x12 sheets but they also come in a 6x6 pad where the elements are all a bit smaller.

Thanks to Scottie Crafts for providing me these papers to work with

Hope this gives you some inspiration.  And do hop over and see the goodies at Scotties.

Oh I love your cards, Dawn! Great use of the pp & thanks for the reminder it's still OK to use eyelets! I have a huge collection from when I started stamping & they just sit in the bin. You've inspired me!

Love both cards. I love the little knots between the banners on the first card and your large banners on the second card are a perfect length.

Those banners are my fav, Dawn!So festive. I have learned to love 6" x 6" paper - this looks so yummy!
