Pattern Play....Day #1

Today heralds the start of a new class over at On-Line classes and one l am sure l will benefit from immensely, being what l call DSP challenged. 
As l mentioned in a recent post, l really struggle using dsp as a rule, but l continue to purchase, yet rarely use a lot of it and certainly don't combine pattern dsp very often.
In today's class there were some great hints and techniques on how to choose and combine patterns and colours.....Eeek...all on one card!
I chose to give Jennifer's technique a go today, mainly as l have finally purchased the Heart Framelits from Stampin-Up and loved the cards she made. Plus l have a lovely little stack of 6" x 6" DSP pads and this technique is perfect for finally making a dent in them. this post is a little photo heavy, but l really wanted to share all 4 cards with you.....

All of these were created using only 4 sheets of 6" x 6" DSP from the English Rose pad from Kaiser and some Very Vanilla card stock. The sentiments from SU are stamped in Bravo Burgundy. Pearls are also Kaiser.
"Thanks for stopping by"
All Supplies are Stampin-Up Unless Noted.
