- You can do a whole 8.5x11 sheet very quickly. Cut it up and place on several cards.
- The versatility of looks you can get make it great for virtually any kind of card.
- Minimal supplies needed, and if you don't have them, they are relatively inexpensive and they go a long way.
- The look that is achieved with polished stone is conducive to a CAS type card. You really don't want to cover up all that pretty patterned paper you just made!
Supplies: Stamps: Asian Flair (Verve Stamps), Ink: red, black, gold reinkers Paper: black, white, red, glossy white Accessories, etc.: rubbing alcohol, cotton balls, gold EP, ribbon, gold cord

For my scalloped circle I went with a patterned paper covered flower. It's so nice to choose 4 different papers that you know are going to coordinate nicely! I've been on a bit of a chipboard kick these past few days. I have so much of it, and it really covers up or inks up nicely! It's a pretty quick process too! For these ones, I didn't feel like dealing with Mod Podge, so I taped the paper on.

- You can use a shape, such as circles or squares, for your repeated element.
- You can use a specific theme as a repeated element, say all flourish type stamps.
- You can use the same stamp over and over to make a background, then use it again for your focal point.
- You can even use a monochromatic colour scheme as your repeated element.
