Playing with Patterns Suite: part 2

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is another fun card featuring the Playing with Patterns Suite! Let’s talk about the dies!! We finally have letter, number, and symbol dies that are in a size for you to make some awesome sentiment cards!! These dies really are great, easy to use, and have duplicate letters for quick die cutting!! Yay!! Take the sentiment for today’s card for example, I was able to die cut the letters at one time and not having to go back for another cut of a letter! Don’t forget about the new adhesive sheets and foam adhesive sheets, these are a must for me to make adhering a breeze! I’ll also share with you how I made two of these cards from the Playing with Patterns DSP!

The base layer is Smoky Slate cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”, and embossed with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder:

I used this design from the Playing with Patterns 6” x 6” DSP, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I placed the DSP diagonally in my trimmer, each corner of the DSP is in the middle of the trimmer cutting track, and cut diagonally:

For the card front, you will need:

1. About an 8” piece of the Night of Navy ribbon from the Playing with Patterns Ribbon Combo Pack.

2. I cut a 1” x 4 ½” piece of Smoky Slate cardstock and adhesive sheet (placed on the back of the cardstock before die cutting) and used the dies to cut out the sentiment “miss you”.

3. Use the largest oval Stitched Shapes Dies to cut out a piece in Whisper White cardstock and use the heart outline stamp from Pattern Play to stamp in Highland Heather ink, stamping off once first, as shown. If you were able to purchase the Purple Posy ink pad when it was available or have the Purple Posy Stampin’ Write Marker, you can use those instead.

4. You will need three of the small clear epoxy droplets from the Frosted & Clear Epoxy Droplets, not shown.

I used liquid glue to adhere the diagonal piece of DSP to the embossed base layer and a little bit of Stampin’ Seal on the ribbon to adhere across the seam of the DSP and embossed base layer, trimming off the excess:

I first adhered the letters to the die cut oval, used dimensionals to adhere the oval to the base layer, and then placed the clear epoxy drops as shown:

For the inside, stamp the sentiment from Peaceful Moments in Night of Navy ink and stamp the heart outline stamp the same as the card front:

Here are both cards, side by side. I created the second one just like the first, but adhered the diagonal DSP piece on the opposite corner:

How easy was this card to make?? As you can see, there is plenty of room using these letters, numbers, and symbols to create your own sentiment.

Demonstrator located in Norfolk, Virginia and was first introduced to Stampin' Up! in 2004 when I attended my very first card class with my Mother-in-Law and I was immediately hooked! I first started out by making simple holiday cards and over the years as my stash has grown, so have my card and craft making skills. It has always warmed my heart when family and friends love my cards, but they actually keep them! In 2016 I decided to become a Stampin' Up!
