Creative with Pattern Paper – Mama Elephant

Hi everyone! When I saw the new Little Line Agenda, a fun idea with pattern paper popped into my mind. So I just had to try it out, and I love the result! This paper piecing technique is also fun to do when you are not in the mood for coloring, or you just want to try out something new. On my YouTube channel I also have a process video available to you!

Before I’m diving into the cardmaking process, I want to mention we have a challenge running over at Cloud9 Crafts. The theme of this month is Outdoor Scene. Head over to Instagram to see how you can participate and be eligible to win a prize!

If interested, you can watch the process video on my YouTube channel. Next to the paper piecing, I also give some handy partial die cutting tips. If you like watching my videos, make sure to like, comment, and subscribe. Interacting with my videos will help my channel grow, so thank you!

First I stamped the Little Line Agenda on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. After stamping, I colored the critters with my Copic markers:

  • Bunny variant 1: E000, E00, E11
  • Bunny variant 2: E53, E51, E50
  • Cheeks: R30, R20, R22
  • Other: YG61, YG63, YR20, Y000, R81, R000, BG11, BG0000, V12, V000

On the cheeks of the critters, I added small white dots with a gel pen. I also stamped the flower pots on pattern paper from the Flower Market paper pack from Lawn Fawn. With Copic markers I added some shading to make them look less flat.

For the background, I used Speckled Eggshell cardstock, on which I added a decorative edge with the Postage Frame. On the cardbase itself (6″ x 3″), I adhered striped pattern paper from the Flower Market pack. For some dimension, I adhered the Speckled Eggshell background with foam tape. The critters themselves I also adhered with foam squares to make them stand out.

The sentiment I used is also from the Little Line Agenda stamp set, which I stamped with black ink on white cardstock. To turn it into a nice banner, I used the Itty Bitty Strips die from MFT.

As a final finishing touch, I added Tiny Diamonds around the critters in colors matching the flower pots

I hope you like this card, and it gave you inspiration. Thank you for stopping by and see you next time!
