Throwback Thursday's Pattern Craze

 >>>>>>>>>> Give-Away Alert<<<<<<<<<<


Hi everyone!!! Welcome back to this week's Sweet Stamp Shop's Throwback Thursday. I am featuring Pattern Craze on the blog today and....

This is a MUST HAVE stamp set! 

Just look at it lol. It pretty much speaks for itself :) Patterns, geo-metric shapes, sizes, OPTIONS!!!!! HOT and TRENDY!!!!
Pattern Craze

 I use this stamp set a lot because of the versatility I get from it.

This week I took my inspiration from the Play Date Cafe's challenge blog. The theme for this week's challenge was, It's a {Splash} of Neon. I just LOVED their color scheme they had going...Black, white, and neon yellow (although it looks green to me and that is what I used for my card, neon green)
It's VERY TRENDY this week just like the stamp set. I didn't enter my card in the challenge since it was over before Thursday's Throwback, but it is still fun to play along and a GREAT way to draw your inspiration from. I was also going to use a sketch from another challenge blog but I ended up doing my own thing once I broke out the stamp set and got to work.

This is my card that I came up with:

I got out my watercolor pencils for this card and colored in some of the hearts with black on the panel I created, just to give it a little pop and add a little something! Then to give the panel I stamped and embossed on separation, I matted in black. Next I grabbed the plain hexagon and the dot hexagon and stamped on white and trimmed out. I like the idea of just layering them sligthly underneath with out being "neat" about it. For a little more texture, I broke out the trusty mist and added some neon splash and then my black and neon pens and did some border lines. Then I just accented with a few embellies and a sentiment.

For my sentiment I first stamped Epic from Starts Here in neon green and then stamped right in the middle, Happy Birthday from Zombies. I love how perfectly they fit together.
 Starts Here

Loving Pattern Craze??? Head on over to the Sweet Stamp Shop  HERE and snag one up before they are gone, we only have limited stock on hand. So don't procrastinate ;)

Here is a fun little "extra" for you as well :)
 How To:
  • Stamp and cut out three big hexagons and one small then distress the edges
  • On one edge cut a slit  just to the middle
  • Glue the slit together slightly overlapping the edge to creat a "cone shape"
  • Glue the rest of the layers together and add a crystal, brad, or pearl
