Playing with Patterns: part 3

Hello and welcome to today’s card, which is my final card featuring the Playing with Patterns Suite week! I decided to make a “clean and simple” card to show you how you can “play with patterns” for a quick and easy card for any reason or occasion! Not only that, but I also used three of the new 2020-2022 In Colors, which is a great way to play with the new In Colors and see which ones are your “new favorite”! 

The base layer is Whisper White cardstock, cut at 4” x 5 ¼”. I used the “slashed” background stamp in Just Jade ink, stamping it two times to complete the design across the cardstock. I then used the “half circle” stamp in Bumble Bee ink above and below the Just Jade stamped image, stamping two times to complete the design across:

For the front of the card, you will need:

1. Use the scalloped heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack to punch out of Vellum cardstock.

2. Use the heart punch from the Heart Punch Pack to punch out of Whisper White cardstock. I used the dot stamp in Magenta Madness to stamp the heart, stamping off first.

3. I used Magenta Madness cardstock to die cut the word “hi”, placing a piece of adhesive sheet behind the cardstock before die cutting.

I first adhered the Vellum scalloped heart to the base layer and then layered the other punched out heart on top as shown:

I removed the adhesive backing to the letters, adhered them to the heart punch cardstock, and then adhered the base layer to a Thick Whisper White cardstock card base, cut at 5 ½” x 8 ½”, and scored at 4 ¼”:

For the inside, I cut another piece of Whisper White cardstock at 4” x 5 ¼”, stamped the striped stamp in Just Jade ink, stamped the lined dotted stamp in Bumble Bee ink above it, and then the sentiment from the Heartfelt stamp set in Magenta Madness ink:

Isn’t this a fun quick and easy card? Since these stamps are photopolymer, I had no problem lining up the stamps when I needed to stamp an additional time, so I’m not sure how they would work with the Stamparatus. You could easily change the color of inks used and punches if you want to make multiples of this card to have on hand! I hope you have enjoyed this week with the Playing with Patterns Suite and be sure to check out next week’s cards!

I am an Independent Stampin' Up! 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! Demonstrator and figured I could just do it for a hobby, but now I am going to branch out for all to world to see. So grab your favorite beverage, sit in your favorite chair, and join me as I share my cards and crafts with you! Enjoy!
