----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Are you ready for our next fun challenge? The DT is sharing with you their take on a great technique...DYI Pattern Paper. Here is a great video by Sandy on YouTube using stamps and ink to create a custom pattern paper. She shares the how- to- do for this technique by using repeating patterns. 
(its for Christmas paper but the tech will work with any stamp image)

Here are the inspiration pieces created my SBC DT using Bugaboo Digital Stamps and making their own pattern paper

Sandy- A Working Mom's Joy

Tip: Use one stamp repeatedly for background and don't forget to stamp inside of the card too!

TiP:  Use stamps with smaller patterns to create smaller pieces of cardstock.

Tip: A stamping wheel makes a good way of creating your own paper.

Cristina - VintagePink39
Tip: Make sure to use GOOD watercolor paper when using water based products.

Lynne - Her Craftiness 
Tip: Have fun and let your imagination soar (or swim for that matter!)

Jennyfer - Jennyfer Creates
Tip: Cut your background paper into smaller pieces to allow flow.

Marilyn - Marilyn's Crafts
Tip:  Use digital designs to create your background

We hope this technique inspired you along with the great design team projects. Your challenge:

Create a card using a 
Clear/Rubber Stamp Image or Digital Stamp Image

*****You do NOT have to do the "DYI Paper
 techique" for your project, just make sure it follows the challenge theme: Stamped Images

This challenge ends on Saturday, Feb 1st at 9:00pm EST.  Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. 
If you do make a project using the featured technique, 
your project and blog may be showcased on the SBC Facebook group.
And as always, comments are appreciated. Thank you for stopping by and Have a blessed day!

  1. Thanks for the great tutorial.
    I love making my own backgrounds it is a great way to match and/or tie in the colors or theme you want.
    Wonderful job on your projects everyone.
    Thanks for the inspiration.
    Crafty hugs.

  2. Ladies your cards are all so beautiful! Thank you for the tutorial Sandy. You know I am a lover of them.

  3. Tee hee hee I used Bugaboo images for all three entries this time.
    Crafty hugs,

  4. Just found your challenge and am hoping to enter your 'pretty pictures using stamped image' challenge tomorrow. I'm guessing that in the summary, where you say, "challenge theme- Celebrate Winter' is an error. Hopefully because my card is definitely not winter themed.

  5. Yes, Decosse's Dynamite Doodles, it is a typo--oopsie. Thanks for letting us know. I'll fix it :-)

  6. Thanks so much for the wonderful tutorial. Ladies of the DT you have made some wonderful cards to truly inspire us. I have tried to join your challenge blog, but blogger is not being nice to me tonight and it will not let me join. Am hoping it will let me later.

Building Block Graduation Card

Hello, everyone! Melissa here on to share a "building block" style card with you. I made this one graduation themed, since there are a ton of graduations going on right now. Hope you enjoy this card, and are inspired to try it out yourself. Here is the tutorial I followed from Split Coast Stampers. To make it easier, I will give you all the measurements, here. It looks harder than it is, I promise. Start with a piece of cardstock in your desired color that is 5.5 x 10.5. Put the 10.5 inch side along the top of your score board or paper trimmer, and score at 3.5 inches and 7 inches. Fold the first score line in a mountain fold, and the second in a valley fold. You should end up with a "z" fold card. The next part can get a bit tricky, so make sure you watch the video to fully understand what I am about to explain. On the back side of the "valley" fold, take a ruler and pencil and mark these measurements: 3/8 1 3/8 1 5/8 2 5/8 2 7/8 3 7/8
