5 ways to use busy patterned papers & GIVEAWAY

Hope you are all well and that my 5 cards brighten your day just a bit today! I have been playing with the April card kit by SimonSaysStamp and love it. It’s packed with products and it includes stamps, ink pads, embossing powder, papers, cardstock, stencil and more.

There are so many ideas already online on how you can use the stamp set. So today I am sharing 5 ideas on how you can create cards with these patterned papers. The ideas I am sharing are great for any type of busy patterned paper and you can easily use them with what you have at home. For these cards I am not working exclusively with products from the kit as I am focusing more on the techniques.

Scroll all the way down as I have a giveaway for you too!

    Dear Vicky,

    Oh so hard to choose, they’re all lovely!
    I have a soft spot for everything Butterfly, so I have to go with that one.
    The Thanks shaker card is a close second.

    Love your videos, thank you for your little light in these difficult times.

    Hallo from South Africa. All of them are gorgeous. If I have to pick just one it will be the inlay die cutting (number 3). My Mom and I love your videos.

    Your 5th card is my favorite. They are all beautiful, but that one is a very pretty look, with the message done with resist.
