Makin’ It Easy with Patterned Paper

by | Aug 20, 2018 | Birthday, Concord & 9th, Happy Thoughts, Lawn Fawn, Neat & Tangled, Quick & Simple, Simon Says Stamp

Happy Monday, friends! I am not usually a double poster in single day, but we are making an exception with this fun patterned paper pack, Flyaway by Modascrap. I’ll admit that I am a collector of patterned papers, but it is pretty rare that they actually make it onto a card. Often I like to line envelopes with them.

This pack though, this pack is so good it is a focal point for 24 cards I, and my littles, made in 2 hours. We purchased 2 packs with 12 prints in each (no repeats per set). They aren’t fancy, but they are beautiful, quick and easy for any level of crafter. I’m sharing 8 of our favorites here with you today. Several have already left our abode and journeyed off on their own to new states and countries.

The Modascrap Flyaway paper is available in a 6″x 6″ and 12″ x 12″ format. I opted for the smaller being that 99% of cards I create are A2 (4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″).  This particular paper is my favorite of the whole set. I trimmed the paper down to A2, stamped the kindness sentiment in Catherine Pooler Midnight Black ink and clear embossed it. It is considered dye ink, but is more like a pigment in that is stays wet for a short amount of time. I embossed the sentiment right on the ink. No Versamark required. To finish, we adhered the panel to a folded card base and added Caramel Cream Nuvo drops.

This dreamy watercolor paper needed very little. We die cut it with the Lawn Fawn Quilted Background and added the die cut hooray sentiment. A little Holoshimmer thread and Wink of Stella added just enough sparkle.

We adorned this amazing print with the Simon Says Stamp Oh, Hello There die cuts in black. We coated the letters with clear Wink of Stella and added Caramel Cream Nuvo Drops.

Gina K’s Lettered & Lovely sentiment stamped in CP Midnight Black and a few Wisteria Purple Nuvo Drops make this one of the quickest of the bunch. Simple and enchanting.

Another gorgeous print enhanced with just a Gina K Lettered & Lovely sentiment and Wedgewood Blue Nuvo Drops.

Art Deco by Neat & Tangled are the focus of this geometric eye-catcher. We filled the center diamond with Nuvo Crystal Glaze after lightly dusting the damp CP Midnight Black ink “celebrating” with Gold Perfect Pearls. We topped the wet glaze with Sparkle Dust. The glaze holds onto the super fine glitter really well for an ultra sparkly finish.

This technique is really better suited for a heavier paper like cardstock over the standard paper weight we used here. We did experience slight warping.

The first of two fabulous watercolor florals included in the Flyaway paper pack. Oh, Hello (minus there) made another appearance as well as glitter cardstock and Morning Dew Nuvo Drops.

For this card we die cut birthday into the watercolor floral revealing black glitter cardstock below and adhered happy on top in gold glitter. It added a touch of dimension to an otherwise extremely easy card that looks like it took hours of hand painting. Gold sequins draw the eye to the sentiment.

Thank you for your time with me today. It’s going to be a great week!
