Believe in No Designer Paper

Funny title right? Well, this is about make your own designer paper today. My funky looking paper is simply made with Impression Obsession Cover-A-Card background stamps.

I inked up my Distressed Corduroy Cover-A-Card background stamp in SU Island Indigo and stamped it on a piece of white card stock. Next, the Rose Lace Cover-A-Card background stamp was inked in SU Lucky Limeade and stamped over top. Easy right? Now, instead of cleaning off my stamps, I used several other sheets of white card stock and did several different variations. Then using a baby wipe, I cleaned off my stamps and yes, made yet another piece of designer paper by rolling the baby wipe across another sheet of white card stock. It’s a very subtle look and that’s what was used to make the flower.

Using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and my baby wipe background I cut two of the larger flowers and three of the smaller ones. Next the edges were inked with a little more Island Indigo. Then using a craft molding mat, each of the flowers was shaped using a large stylus and lightly wrinkled in my hand. Next, I took a small Recollections paper flower and inked it with a little Lucky Limeade and more of the Island Indigo. The layers were all glued together with Crafters Pick glue.

Then using a piece of Lucky Limeade, I cut three Tim Holtz Tattered Leaves. Each leaf was then stamped with a leaf stamp in Island Indigo, spritzed with water and crumpled in my hand. Then they were dried with my heat gun.

Once the piece of stamped background paper was adhered to my card base with my ATG, it was spritzed lightly with Perfect Pearls Mist. Then the flower and leaves were adhered with large glue dots and finally I stamped the sentiment in SU Basic Gray.
