Presto Patterns

I bought the Presto Patterns Designer Series Specialty Paper from the new mini catalogue and have been dying to use it, but was a bit stumped on what to do with it. I wanted to create a set for a class, so I wanted a simple yet effective style that would highlight the great designs in the paper - and this is what I came up with.

I used sponging to bring out the designs in the paper and layered them onto Whisper White cardstock and a Crumb Cake base card. The flower is from the Friends Never Fade Stamp Set, the markers were perfect to colour in the stems and flowers.

I used some satin ribbon to thread through the label and used the happy birthday from the Well Scripted Stamp Set (from the current mini), again using the markers to colour the 'happy' and the 'birthday'.


  1. These are lovely Alison. Great bold colours

  3. You have sponged the papers beautifully, it really hilights the patterns. Great vibrant colours too. I've been hording these too thanks for sharing your ideas.

  4. Love these Alison...they are works of art!
