New Video: Piecing with Patterned Papers

Last week, I shared a fun card that transformed a striped Designer Series Paper into a fun pattern.  Although I thought my instructions were straightforward, I received many requests for further explanation.  While I’m not always able to offer a video, I really wanted y’all to see this, so I filmed it for you.  Aren’t I the greatest?!  Here’s the card I shared (you can click on the picture below to see the original post):

And Many More, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, GDP010

The pattern in the background of this card was created with Home for Christmas Designer Series Paper and my Square Framelits.  I created a video to share how I did this – and after the video, I’m sharing a small twist on this design.  First, here’s my video:

And here’s the project I completed with my club and shared in the video.  I used the 1″ Square punch to crop out these small squares (instead of the framelits) and mounted them with Crumb Cake and Mossy Meadow.  I cropped out a star with the Medium Star punch from Gold Glimmer paper that serves as the focal point for this card.  Here’s the card I shared:

Here’s another project I shared with you earlier this year that used the 1″ Square punch to create a fun and unique pattern.  Click on the picture to see my original post:That Thing You Do, Stampin' Up!, Brian King, FabFri71

I hope you found that video tutorial helpful and can find lots of ways to manipulate your Designer Series Papers into fun and festive patterns.

Thanks for stopping by today!

  7. Hi Brian:

    First of all Thank You for the video. It’s so nice to start the day with your smiling face. LOL As a visual learner what seemed difficult prior to the video now seems so very simple. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your talents with those of us who are less artistic. Big hugs to you!

  8. It took me a while but I did figure out how to make this card. And I love the video too! I am going to try your star card.

    Thanks so much for all of your tutorials and videos

  9. Well Brian, so glad you made the video, I’m a visual person, I much rather see a video than read the directions, I know…..I might sound really lazy but that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!!!
    It’s fabulous the different designs you can get from one pattern.

  10. Thanks for the great tutorial video Brian.

  11. and the crowd says, “ooohhhh, aaaahhhhh”. while we LOVE and UNDERSTAND your written instructions, a video of you “live and in person” is way better! We all just wanted to see you in another video! thanks for sharing Brian – you ARE the greatest!

  12. You ARE the greatest! The punched squares would go faster, but nice to see the option of using the framelit for larger squares. Wonderful cards!

  14. You’re soooo clever; TFS.

  15. Awesome video! Thanks for sharing.

  16. Outstanding! I am also a visual learner so this was very helpful. Now my brain in racing to see if I can really go outside of the box and try this with florals. Hmmm. Happy Thanksgiving my friend!
