I was in the mood for playing with geometric patterns this weekend, in particular, using my Inky Doodles Print backgrounds stamp set to make some patterned backgrounds. I love the way you can build up patterns in so many ways with these stamps.
The first attempt reminded me of fabric patterns so the focal image I used on the cards were Kraft card die cut mannequins.

Memento Ink Pads : Peanut Brittle, Potters Clay and Rhubarb Stalk for the background. Pear Tart, Summer Sky and New Sprout for the panel.
The flowers where stamped in Rhubarb Stalk, cut out and mounted with Pinflair glue.

No distress ink used anywhere ..... how unusual! I was tempted, very tempted, but on this occasion I left them alone.

I had fun with these and have my Mother's Day card made well in advance just in case that day job gets in the way of me finding time for crafty things.


  1. Love the patterned paper broken up with the earthy kraft card - looks fab. And those filigree hearts are lovely - charming cards, Julia!

  2. I love your 2 cards Julia & that first one certainly does bring fabric to mind....I had some that was very similar back in the days when I used to dressmake!
