Pattern Mixing...


Happy Monday, I hope your week has got off to a good start. Things have here in the studio with NEW soon to be released product entering the studio! 

You'll get a little peek at one of the April Release products in use if you stop by the blog tomorrow & if your in the North East why not pop by The Paperlane on Saturday, you'll be able to see the NEW product it action & even purchase it 3 weeks early! 

Anyway, onto todays card, a new trend in fashion is to mix patterns & this is exactly what I've done on this masculine birthday card...

There is definitely A LOT going on on this card and it kinda has a retro feel to it. It's FUN to play about with scraps of patterned paper & a variety of stamps! I used some KaiserCraft scraps from their Shaken Not Stirred Collection which created the colour theme for the card. 

I started out by paper piecing the label frame on a separate piece of white card stock & cut it out. Before I adhered the paper pieced label to the base card, I stamped the label on the base card and stamped the circles, spots & stars so I knew how they'd look & be once the label was in place.

That's all I have to share with you today, it's a busy time here in the studio with lots of exciting things in the pipeline! 

Hope to see you tomorrow & thanks for stopping by today.
