Papertrey’s Make It Monday #274: Pattern Play with Die Cut Silhouettes

This week’s challenge for Papertrey’s Make It Monday was to use pattern paper to create die cut silhouettes.  This was a struggle initially.  I don’t use my pattern paper in die cuts….never.  But it was a good learning exercise since I was happy with the results.  Stretching yourself is a good thing, right? The other lesson of the day was that you can never have enough sequins.  I ended up needing 2 orange and pink ones and went through lots of different ones to find the ones that match hibiscus burst and orange zest.  Now I have an excuse to buy more sequins and pattern paper…hmmm.   Supplies are listed below.  Happy crafting!



  • Cardstock:  White 110 lb. (Recollections); Smokey Shadow Patterned Paper (Papertrey); Orange Zest Patterned Paper (Papertrey); Hibiscus Burst Patterned Paper (Papertrey); Hibiscus Burst (Papertrey)
  • Ink:  Onyx Black (Versafine)
  • Stamps: Blooming Button Bits (Papertrey)
  • Dies: Mega Gracious Vases die (Papertrey); Button Stacks II die (Papertrey)
  • Accessories: Sequins (Pretty Pink Posh and Doodlebug)
