A Year of Tech. Stamping on Pattern Paper

Image may contain: text 

Welcome to A Year of Card Techniques Blog Hop where each month we feature a different card technique.
 We’ve assembled a team of card makers who range from new to advanced, so you’ll see a great variety of cards and ideas. We all love our stamp sets and we all love our patterned paper.  
Well, this month we’re combining the two by stamping ON patterned paper for some unique projects.  It will be fun to see what stamps and papers our team decides to pair together.   
And if you would like to check out our past technique hops, you can do that here:

I have to say this is a favorite technique of mine. I love it especially for sentiments. So here is the card that I did for the hop. I took pattern paper that was blah and added a medallion flower/ sentiment and I really like how it comes together. Pink and Black is a favorite color combo of mine too.

Now these are cards were all done using sentiments right on the pattern paper. When I do sentiments on pattern paper, I try to keep them black, gray or brown.

I hope you like them and are enjoying the hop so far!
Now you’re off to visit with Jodie . Hope you had fun and thanks for stopping by.  See you next month with another technique!

Here’s the full line-up in case you get lost:


  1. Wow, Sandy, some great cards here! Thanks so much for hopping with us!

  2. Sandy, you did another wonderful job with these cards. I have a hard time picking a favorite one. They are all so pretty...and so many new ideas. Thank you so much for sharing them with us and for hopping along.

  3. Great job and lots of good ideas to try.

  4. Sandy, all your cards are fantastic. I think my favorite is the butterfly and flower card. Very pretty!

  5. Good idea to stamp the sentiments right on the patterned paper. I'll have to try that! Great cards.

  6. Four very different projects, and very creative and fabulous ones at that. I adore pink and black, so that first one was eye candy for me. Always great to hop with you.

  7. Beautiful cards, nice to see the pattern papers!

  8. Pretty cards! Love that medallion flower!

  9. I really like all your cards and the first one is a nice twist on the embossing - where you put a designed piece of paper over the embossed image. Cool.

  10. Good job on all 4 projects! I love the Christmas tag!

  11. Wow, great them all, can't pick a favorite! Love the swirls and medallion on the first card and the stamp on the tag...great!

  12. Great job; love the stamping on more subtle patterned paper and the bold patterned paper!

In The Mine 12x12 Process Video // Multi Photo

Hello everyone, welcome back! My name is Katelyn and I am sharing with you some tips on how to make poorly printed photos work for you. I have a whole process video explaining all of the details as well, so be sure to check that out. This layout includes three photos that are very, very similar. Which helps tell the story. I hope you enjoy!

Some times we get photos from our home printers or from third party printing sites that didn't come out the way we anticipated. The photo in my example was not processed correctly on the right hand side which you can see in the beginning of the video. However, I figured that instead of requesting a new one and jumping through hoops that I could make it work. Please enjoy the process video below.

I created two cluster groups to help balance the page. One is over the poorly printed part of the photo and the other is on the opposite side. Balancing your page is key for an aesthetically pleasing layout! All of the products used in this project are…
