IHP DT Challenge: Playing with Patterned Paper

This month’s i {heart} papers design team challenge is all about patterned paper. IHP carries a fabulous selection of 12 x 12 papers that will meet pretty much every possible stamping and/or scrapping need. And, right now, lots of that paper (and other stuff, too!) is on sale in preparation for bringing in lots of new goodies after CHA at the end of this month. After hopping around the DT blogs, be sure to visit IHP to check out the sale!

I used some bold and bright patterned papers for this card from October Afternoon’s Night Light Collection Kit. They provided a perfect background for the space characters in the Out of this World digi image from the latest Chicken Girl Design release. I printed the image on white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers, then carefully cut out each of the characters. It’s hard to see in the photo, but I added some Glossy Accents to the helmets for a glass-like look. They’re attached to the blue patterned paper panel with foam tape.

I used a red star patterned paper from the same collection for the panel peeking out at an angle from behind the image panel. The sentiment is attached tab-style underneath the image panel. I added a strip of red twill across the card and accented it with a pair of sparkly stars. It was three stars, but Chloe the cutie puppy stole one and ate it . . .

Be sure to check out what the rest of the IHP DT has created using patterned papers. Here’s where to find them:
