Manipulate the Data… Jr. Legal Pad Cover

Manipulate the Data… Jr. Legal Pad Cover


Here is another notepad cover design I created.

The golfer is a stamp from a set called “Gordon Golfer” (sku#4325), and the sentiment is called “Manipulate the Data” (sku# F2623).  Both are by Art Impressions.  I stamped the sentiment and image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers (hair: C5; skin: E50, E53, and E71; socks and shoes: BV02, BV08, C2, and C4; club: C4 and BV08).  The grass is a stamp called “Easy Grass Background” by DRS Designs and was stamped with Gina K Moonlit Fog.

The cover was made with white card stock.  Then I created a decorative panel and adhered it to the front.  The multi-colored card stock is called “Easygoing” (item #2003) from the “happy-go-lucky” line by Fancy Pants Designs.  The purple plaid card stock is by Kite Tails Designs called “Dart Board” (item: 12-101) from the “Man Cave” collection.  I also used Gina K Edible Eggplant and Stampin’ Up Pistachio Pudding card stock.

I paper pieced his pants, hat and shirt.  I needed a smaller print (than what was on the patterned paper) for the pants and hat since they were so small so I scanned the paper and used the Silhouette software to create a “fill pattern” for the cut files I created.  For the shirt, I used the dropper in the “Fill Color” window and got the color from a spot on the pattern I used for the pants and hat.  I then added a little extra color with Copic G21.


HERE is a YouTube video tutorial by Melissa The Stamp Doc  showing how to make the notepad covers.

Thanks for checking out my project!

  1. That is hilarious! And, I love all the pattern papers and the way you colored the image. But I am still chuckling over the sentiment!
