Hello! Have you got a lot of patterned paper? I know I do. A ton. I don’t use it as often as I should, but I got really inspired by a new “Layered Bands” stencil set from A Colorful Life Designs. And the idea I had worked perfectly with the new “Are You My Mummy” Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground.

I really like the fun patterns from Queen & Company’s Fright Fest paper pad. I decided they would be perfect for the technique I wanted to do. The Layered Bands stencil set has 2 stencils that create almost triangular bands… I used them on THIS CARD earlier in the month for a completely different look. This time, I used the stencil to trace the shapes on to my patterned paper. Then I cut them out, and using the stencils as guides, I adhered them to black cardstock. I particularly love the thin spacing between the bands. It helps to make each pattern really stand out.
Once everything was glued, I used Lawn Fawn’s Reverse Stitched Scalloped die to cut out the center. I have wanted this die for so long, and I finally have it! I love that the scallop is on the inside of the circle. I filled the space with the Are You My Mummy Sparkle Blend. I love the teeny clay mummies and the varying shades of white, black, oil slick, and green. It worked really well with all the patterned paper. I backed the window with a chevron print. I used the “boo!” from Catherine Pooler’s Mini Cobweb Cover Plate for my sentiment with one of the purple scraps of paper. I used a product that’s similar to Glossy Accents, but unfortunately, this product changed the color of the paper a bit, so it no longer matches perfectly. But it still looks okay.
I think this card came out so cute. And you can use up plenty of patterned paper! Think about this card done with Christmas-themed paper, or party paper….so many options. Plus, this is a pretty fast card to make because there is no stamping or coloring. Please be sure to check out the newest release from Doodles Paper Playground and use my code, ALISON10.
