You're invited to a Party! Illustrator Blog Hop

Good morning!  I am so excited to give you a sneak peek of my newest set Pretty Patterns 2, a follow up to my one of my bestsellers, Pretty Patterns, even more trendy and classic borders and pattern-making possibilities abound!  Today we have just a few more peeks from our illustrating team before everything is revealed tonight at out party!
Supplies used: Pretty Patterns 2 and Stamp it Big! 2, Gina K Ocean Mist ink, Memento Espresso Truffle., Gina k Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate, Ocean Mist,  and White cardstocks,  adhesive pearls.

And a few more quick stampy patterns!  Totally customizeable...


I also have some Silhouette Studio cut files I am SO excited about!  Not only can you cut out individual elements and strips for borders, I have some wonderfully detailed card fronts and mats that make stamping these new pattens look absolutely incredible!:)  Just peeks now, mind you!  The finished cards, coming up!  They all go so well with our other new sets which I've incorporated, but I don't want to show too much before tonight... :)

Fabulous new stamps. Many, many different ways of using them and endless colour possibilities.

You're totally rocking the patterns, Melanie! That blue and brown Thank you card is gorgeous! And those tiny pearls are just the perfect accent to finish it off! I'm really liking the herringbone pattern, and what you did with the squares on that purple/lilac panel is amazing! Very cool cut fils, too - they make the patterns look even more incredible!

Mary said...

LOVE all these samples. I am a girl who likes her geometric patterns...more so than a detailed flower image.

~ Connie said...

What great border designs. I'm always amazed by how you put them together to make such awesome cards!

MyAuntKath said...

Oh! Wow! Do I love these stamps! Your samples are fantastic. I am beginning to think that I need a Cameo to just cut these stamp cut files! Thanks.

Cat Spicer said...

You AMAZE me with these amazing pattern sets. WOWZA!!!!

Pat Jandacek said...

Lots of examples, but I got hung up on one question: how do you get the two colors in the first design/first card shown? I take it the images have to be stamped separately. Wow, the alignment looks awfully good if that's the case!

Melanie said...

Yes, Pat, it's just two border strips that nest perfectly inside one another. Stamps the ring rows first in aqua then the diamonds inside in brown. Easy peasy! Clear stamps are PERFECT for this. :)
