Hand-Penned Tailored Tag Card
What a fun background on this card created by Terri Brumagim!  She used the diamond-shaped Tailored Tag Punch and pretty Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper to assemble a cool pattern that could easily be replicated with any of the beautiful paper packs!
Sweet Sentiment—Terri began by stamping a Hand-Penned Petals sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Basic White cardstock and punching it with the Tailored Tag Punch. She popped it up in the center of a Thick Basic White card base and added a couple of Pale Papaya Loose Flower Flourishes with Glue Dots.
Background Basics—Terri punched 12 Hand-Penned DSP shapes with the Tailored Tag Punch; you could use one of each of the 12 patterns available in the pack!  She carefully adhered those punch-outs onto the background with SEAL Adhesive beginning with the shapes closest to the sentiment and working outward. She used Paper Snips to trim the overhanging shapes flush to the edge of the card front.

In Good Taste Triangle Background Card
Similar to the above card using a punched shape, this card, created by Bobbie Ganley, uses the Stitched Triangles Dies to make a fun geometric background element! Use this basic layout with any of the sale Designer Series Papers for a cool card!
Background Basics—Bobbie began by embossing a 5-1/4" x 4" piece of Smoky Slate cardstock with the Tasteful Textiles Embossing Folder and mounted it onto a Smoky Slate card base. Next, she layered a 5-3/8" x 2-1/2" piece of Basic Gray across the top of the card as the foundation for the triangle background.
Terrific Triangles—Bobbie die-cut 8 pieces of In Good Taste DSP with the Stitched Triangles Dies, then positioned and adhered them onto a 5-3/8" x 2-1/8" piece of Basic White. She trimmed off any of the excess papers, so they were flush to the edge, then adhered to the Basic Gray piece on the card front.
Marvelous Message—The sentiment is one from the Many Messages background stamp that has tons of greetings on one large stamp. Bobbie masked off the adjacent greetings with sticky notes (or scrap paper), then inked the birthday greeting with Memento Black and stamped it onto Basic White. She used one of the label shapes on the Messages Die to die-cut the label shape, the popped it up with Dimensionals.
