Stamp on Patterned Paper: Doodling Face with Heart

Welcome back to Lost Coast Portal to Creativity where Lost Coast Designs and Carmen's Veranda collide to bring you twice the inspiration and double the fun!

Happy November from Laurie and welcome to our new challenge:  Stamp on Patterned Paper.  If you are like me, you have lots of scrap book paper or other patterned paper, so this gives you the chance to try out your rubber or acrylic stamps on them.  Challenging but fun!

I just bought a pad of William Morris designed paper, and I was excited to use it.  I chose two different but complimentary patterns for this card I made using the Face with Heart stamp from Lost Coast Designs.  This was so simple!

I stamped my doodle face onto one piece of the patterned paper then cut it using a die cut with a stitched edge.  I then die cut a piece of cream handmade paper with the same type die in the next larger size.  I attached the die with the face to the larger one, being careful to center them.

Next I cut a square of the second patterned paper and layered it with a square of the cream handmade paper.  I centered my circles exactly then attached them to my square panel.  Last step was to add some Glossy Accents to the heart-shaped eye, and that's it!

So get out your stamps and your patterned paper and be sure to enter your projects here on the Portal for a chance to win some free stamps!
