My Pinkalicious Blog Hop

Good morning everyone! I have decided to join the blog hop over at The Pink Stamper's Blog. The challenge is to show our style making our favorite thing!  It could be our favorite color combo, our favorite Cricut cartridge, or our favorite technique. Just to have some fun and with kind of stress! Doesn't this sound fun!! Go on over to her blog to join the fun and to enter in her fabulous giveaway! 

Recently, I have fallen in love with creating my own pattern paper using stamps.  I have seen it a lot, but never done it.  I really like the way my cards turn out using this technique, in my opinion it adds so much! I also tried challenging myself by NOT using my cricut and just a few current products! WHAT?!?!? I LOVE my cricut, but I LOVE my stamps too. I have so many other cutting systems and inks that I love, but just haven't used them in such a long time and thought that this would be a great time to dust them off and bring them out!

So here it is...  

To cut the ovals out, I used the oval template from the coluzzle. No worries if you don't have this I'm pretty sure you have an oval cut out in one of those cricut cartridges you! I stamped the sewing machine with StazOn ink and used a craft knife to cut it out. The pink rectangle are measured at 1.75 by 4 and the white piece measures 1.5 by 3.75.

With this sentiment (in which I love) the yellow piece was cut at 2.25 by 1 and the white was cut at 2 1/8 by 7/8.
