Make It Monday #333

Layering Patterns Over Images

It is always a treat to see Dawn McVey with her MIM challenges.  I'm joining her this week as she shares a fun way to add interest and the look of texture to card projects. 
She also shares some tips for layering of colors technique on her gorgeous card set in the video HERE.

My Stamps:  Rosie Posie and Biased Stripe is my pattern overlay
Cardstock:  Stamper's Select White and Blush 110# for base-card

I wasn't sure about this technique and how my card would turn out.  Well...truth be told, Dawn's amazing 'works of art' totally intimidate me and at the same time inspire me to branch out and try new things 😳

But, her it is and I really love this card ~ just wish I had done a few at the same time like Dawn instructed in her video!!


  1. Helen, It turned out beautifully. The overlay is such a lovely touch. You need to do this technique again.

  2. This is a pretty card. Rosie Posie is a favorite and you made it shine with your choice of vibrant colors.

  3. This is fabulous, Helen! I love the look of texture and those stripes work beautifully!

  4. I know, right? Why don't we automatically lay out AT LEAST two cards every time we make one? That is a mystery in the Playhouse that I am conundrummed about constantly! At least you know that now you have inspired us to create our own beautifully card like yours, Helen! I have never thought of doing this either (!), but now I can't wait to try it!! Hugs, Darnell

  5. Beautifully done Helen! You and I were creating on the same wave length for this challenge as I used Rosie Posie too. You know what they say about great minds.... ;0) Your card is so lovely!!

  6. Helen, the diagonal lines through the blooms are lovely! Great soft pattern you created, shines through the petals. LOVELY! Someone's going to love this sweet birthday card!

  7. This is absolutely GORGEOUS Helen! Love, LOVE the diagonal lines going through your lovely flowers...this is one "happy" happy birthday card!! Well done my friend!! :0)

  8. Ok, now you have made me want to get that Rosie Posie stamp set out! Helen this is a showstopper card! loving the stripes with those gorgeously stamps bloom! Wow!!!!!

  9. Helen, I’m way behind blog hopping and commenting but your card is definitely a winner. Congratulations! What a sweet birthday card, and I can’t wait to use your card as inspiration.
