{Spotlight Project} Cornelia Stamps on Patterned Paper

Hi, Cornelia here today, stamping on patterned paper. I have a huge stack of PP at home and I hardly ever use it. I finally decided its time to do something with it.....remembering an old video by Lizzie Jones, where she did just that.

My supplies:

preview-Shery_Russ-ArtsyTribalDoodles  stmp1051.jpegamazing-worddie

I started out with a 6x6 sheet of PP

Did some testing of colors before I started...

...and settled on those:

Stamped the tribal arts stamps randomly on the paper. Sponged a scrap piece of water color card stock with distress ink and die cut the word die.

Took a piece of white card stock and marked where I needed some colored background. Sponged.

Put foam tape on the back of my PP.

And put it all together. Not totally happy....

Decided that I needed black splatters.....
Now I am happy with the result:

Hope you liked this and perhaps get inspired to pull out all that paper you have hoarded...

Remember if you try out any of the techniques from our Spotlight posts and hook your project up at our Spotlight Project Showcase  you have a chance to win a $15 gift certificate (random drawing) OR your choice of 5x7 stamp set + a Spotlight Project guest designer spot (randomly drawn from the Top 3 picks).


  1. Fun look with this technique! I have lots of patterned paper too!

  2. Love how you have stamped on the paper to make this cheerful card

  3. FUN card and tutorial :)
    ... I confess, I "collect" pretty papers much faster than I use them => THANK YOU for the INSPIRATION Cornelia!!!

  4. Yes!! Le's use the patterned paper. Fun idea and card. Hugz

  5. This is such a great idea, Cornelia. Hmmm which patterned paper should I use? ;)

  6. Such a fun idea! I suppose most of us have a collection of neglected papers...

  7. Cornelia is just to clever for words...surprising she hasn't got a big head from all the praise she gets. This is just another example of her brilliance.
