PTI Make it Monday #206: Mixing Stamped Patterns

Danielle Flanders did such an amazing job on this week's Make it Monday mixing her gorgeous creations ... I had a great time stamping my patterns but then got stuck trying to put them together to make some cards.  I am not enamoured with them all but will still share ...

I took my colours from some pictures from Rifle Paper Co. - I just love their modern whimsical designs!
I did some swatches to see how they look together:
 And here are my designs using all PTI products - Irresistible Ikat, Ombre Builder, Watercolour Wonder, Leave it Be and Swoosh.
My first card is quite ethereal and hard to photograph with pale subtle colours.  I used a Feather Finery die with the Leave it Be, layered some foam tape using the Ikat polka strip and a Wet Paint III die cut with a portion of the Ombre builder.
 I rounded the corners with a Corner Chomper and that's about it!  A very simple pale pastel card.
My next card is not my fave but I will show you anyhow .... I used a Wet Paint III die on a bunch of different patterns that I had stamped:
 Five patterns are included here with various scales ... some worked better with this die than others. :)
This next one only uses two patterns but I like the layout of it.  I took a Kraft card base and laid a Watercolour Wonder striped piece over, matting and centring it.  I then used a circle die to cut out the centre.
I stacked four die cut layers of Recollections 110lb white card stock with the top being an Ombre Builders pattern from one of the sheets I stamped.
My last card also only uses two patterns but I thought I would share it anyhow:
I used an Aqua Mist card base, the Leave it Be background layered with a DCWV black chalkboard scrap and the Swoosh pattern.
Thank you to Danielle for challenging me to try a bunch of different patterns ... it was a lot of fun even though I found this to be rather difficult ... Nevertheless, I tried my best.
