Valentine's Day - DIY Pattern Paper

What's your relationship status?! Single? Dating? Married? New relationship? Old relationship? Whatever it may be, one always need a personalized lovey dovey card on Valentine's day to gift their lover or prospective lovers.. ;)

So, we at Lulupu decided to make some Valentine projects early so we could blog about it and give the rest of you plenty of time to get inspired and make one of your own.

This year I decided that its going to be a coral pink and turquoise with a pop of yellow Valentine for me. I wanted to experiment with new colors and I loved the result!!

Since I did not have a lot of Coral pink pattern papers to choose from, I thought of making a pattern paper of my own..

I used a regular pink cardstock, clear three flower stamp from the Micia's Happy Thoughts - CPM 053 stamp set and Micia ink pad in Hot Pink.

I stamped it all over the page.

Then used my white ink pen to highlight the flower a bit..

There you go.. a quick and simple customized pattern paper!

The blue background is distressed using Micia's Deep Blue ink with the help of a masking tape.

And on this pretty matching tag where I've used a prima flower. The background again is distressed mixing Mustard Seed and Wild Honey distress inks. The sentiment is handwritten and cut free hand.. :)

Cute eh?!
