I am excited to share 3 projects with one of the stamp sets in our spectacular June release. The "Pattern Power" Stamp Set comes with a few really cool patterns that allow you to stamp on it's own to create a graphic background. Or you can simply follow the tri-fold insert guide and stamp in various colors to create an unique background.
My first project is about balance, colors and patterns. When we see a definite visual patterns, our brains would quickly form a sense of order and calmness.
I followed the guide and stamped the triangles in my three favorite inks: Fuchsia, Ultramarine and Snapdragon.
It was easy to line up with each color as long as you wipe off the color residue each time. The key is to use a slightly larger card stock for pattern stamping. That way, you can easily trim it afterwards. The sentiment "YEAH" seems to be perfect for such a bright design! I white-embossed it with Pure White EP on black card stock and popped it over the stamped images.
Once I was happy with the stamping, I adhered it to the Orange Cream Card Stock. For the embellishments, I added some gold thread and sequins. I find this card very "fashion-forward" (smile)!
My next card is an uplifting and empowering one! I lined up the stamp each time with a ruler and stamped it in Velvet and Cloudy Night. While I was really pleased with the patterns, I stamped on top and bottom.
For my focal point, I took out the Mid Century Frame Die and dry-embossed it with an embossing tan mat. This resulted with a very subtle letterpress on my stamped design. I then added the black Mid Century Die over the textured background.
The sentiment "so proud of you" from Sentiment Strips goes perfectly with the "WOW" (stamped in Antique Gold Pigment Ink). For the final touches, I added the Red Cosmo Enamel Dots.
My 3rd card is visually stunning thanks to the Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink and the nearly 3-D cube effect.
By following the guide, I stamped the cubes in just TWO steps onto Jet Black Card Stock. I them trimmed it off with Halftone Square Die Set. To add a touch of softness and elegance, I added the Botanical Rhapsody Washi Tape Flower.
To enhance the overall floral design, I stamped Delicate Flowerbed at the bottom. The sentiment from Sentiment Strips was stamped in Enchanted Gold Pigment Ink . I love this simple yet so elegant design.
I hope that you feel inspired and empowered by this "Pattern Power" Stamp Set.
