IB142 Playful Patterns

Hi there, stampers!  Thursday brings a new Inspired By challenge...woohoo, I loved this one...those peachy hues are right up my alley!  Although these colors don't match my living room, I would still love to have pillows like these: 

And here's our optional sketch!

I searched through my vast supply of retired DSPs because I knew that I probably had some Grapefruit Grove or Crisp Cantaloupe in there somewhere!  When I found a few that I liked, I pulled out a really old Papertrey hexagon die and went to work:

The process of cutting, poking and replacing all those wee little pieces was a bit time-consuming, but it was fun and relaxing, watching the colors fill in the grad!  The die comes with a couple of templates that you can use, depending on how many different colors or patterns you are incorporating.  I only chose four:

To make adhering the pieces easier, I cut a piece of Adhesive Sheet and applied it to the front of my card, then laid down the outer grid, then the pieces to fill in.  I heat embossed a birthday sentiment on to some Basic Black cardstock, and added a couple of circular elements and another Papertrey die, this time a butterfly that I embossed with the Ornate Floral EF:

I have several birthdays coming up this month, so it's nice to have some cards on hand!  I hope you'll check out what our designers did at the IB blog, and I hope you'll play along with us!  Thanks for popping in!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

"The fear of the LORD leads to life: then one rests content, untouched by trouble."  Proverbs 19:23

LeAnne, I appreciate the time it took to fill in that cover plate. It looks amazing. I used Crisp Cantaloupe too, one of my FAV SU colors.

Swoon! Now, I've got to get out my retired DSP from that package...I know I have it somewhere! I just love what you did with the honeycomb :-)

That's a lot of poking and gluing... but it was worth it! Terrific birthday card!
