Papertrey Ink Make It Monday - #206: STAMPING AND MIXING PATTERNS

Happy Sunday dear friends!!  I hope you have enjoyed your weekend!!  I haven't been feeling too well lately, but I was able to take some time to spend time with my kids,  Spending time with family definitely makes this mom happy and helps to heal what ails you!!  I was able to spend some time today working on Papertrey Ink's Make it Monday Challenge #206 - Stamping and Mixing Paper.  Danielle Flanders shares with us how to create and mix patterned papers.  She is amazing!! Here's the challenge:
--Create a project utilizing your take on the challenge. Your project must use at least one Papertrey product and at least three stamped patterns.

Here's my take on the challenge:
 I used this photo as inspiration to create my patterned papers:
Dyptique + Jonathan Adler
These are the papers I created:
I used Background Basics: Super Stripes and black ink for the first pattern.  I used a Tim Holtz Stamp and black ink for the second pattern.  To create the third pattern I used The Sweet Life stamps and stamped them Sweet Blush Ink on Sweet Blush paper.  The next pattern was created  by stamping leaves from Garden Grace on Simply Chartreuse paper using Versamark Ink.  I love those little leaves.  The final pattern was embossed with gold embossing powder using the Crackled stamp.  I love all of these patterns and colors!  So Shabby and very chic!!

I used the You've Been Framed: Oval Die and cut out the various patterns and layered them all on a Smokey Shadow card base.  The florals and dies cuts are stamped using Sweet Blush and Simply Chartreuse Ink.  The sentiment from Brushed Blooms was stamped in Black and Soft Stone.  I added a Hug Snug Seam Binding bow, a strip of striped patterned paper, a strip of gold paper and a little scalloped strip as the final touches.  Such a fun card!! I love all these new stamps and dies from Papertrey Ink!!!

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous week!!!
