Let's Celebrate You - Playing with Patterns DS Paper

Today's card is just totally fun! I was flipping through the designer series papers for the Playing with Patterns suite and found one that I just loved!

The colors in the Playing with Patterns designer series paper are Night of Navy, Purple Posy and Crushed Curry. It seems like such an odd color combination but I loved the design on the paper so I went with it!

I used the following cuts of cardstock:

  • Purple Posy (card base): 11” x 4¼”, scored at 5½”

  • Playing with Patterns Designer Series Paper: Night of Navy, Purple Posy and Crushed Curry large polka dots paper, 3¾" x 5"

  • Night of Navy (mat for sentiment): 3½" x 1⅛"

  • Whisper White (sentiment): 3⅜" x 1"

I also used the following stamps and die cuts from the Celebrate Sunflowers bundle (#154065):

  • Let's Celebrate You sentiment stamp for the Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set

  • Wheat stalk dies from the Sunflowers die set


  1. Trim your Purple Posy cardstock to 11” x 4¼” and score it at 5½” using your paper trimmer

  2. Crease the card base fold using your bone folder

  3. Cut your designer series paper to 3¾" x 5"

  4. Cut a piece of Night of Navy cardstock to 3½" x 1⅛" for the sentiment mat (remember to check your scrap paper for the smaller pieces - it's a great way to use up scraps!)

  5. Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 3⅜" x 1" for the sentiment (you could also stamp first then cut to size later)

  6. Place your Purple Posy card base into the Tasteful Textile 3D embossing folder and run through your Big Shot (or equivalent)

  7. Die cut the wheat stalks, two dies, 1 of each die in each color (I used my scraps for this!) - Night of Navy, Purple Posy and Crushed Curry

  8. Place the "Let's Celebrate You" sentiment onto your clear block "H" and, using your Night of Navy and Purple Posy Stampin' Blends markers, create an ombre effect by coloring the stamp, top half Night of Navy and bottom half Purple Posy

  9. Stamp the colored stamp centered on your cut Whisper White

  10. Cut a 4¼" strip of the White and Purple Posy ombre ribbon from the Playing with Patterns ribbon combo pack and wrap around the cut designer series paper, approximately 1½" inches from the top of the designer series paper - adhere using Stampin' Seal to the back of the paper

  11. Place Stampin' Seal on the back of the cut designer series paper and adhere, centered, on your Purple Posy card base

  12. Using multipurpose glue, glue down your die cut wheat stalks as shown in the image

  13. Apply Stampin' Seal to the back of the Whisper White sentiment and adhere down, centered, on your Night of Navy mat piece

  14. Add 4-5 Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the Night of Navy sentiment mat and adhere down over the the base of the wheat stocks (see image)
