Given a regular deck of cards (diamonds, clubs, hearts, spades, with ace,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,Jack,Queen,King in each) minus the jokers, is there a way of stacking the deck in such a way that no card is on top of or below any card of the same value or the same suit? If so, how many ways are there?

Sorry for bad wording, but ask questions!

By "not on top of" or below, you mean "not immediately on top of" or below; that is, "not touching".
That is, the spade 10 cannot touch the heart 10 (or any other 10),
and also the spade 10 cannot touch the spade King (or any other spade.)
 
Is that the sense of the question?

yes, not touching. as in the spade 10 cannot touch any other card of spades and can also not touch any other 10 regardless of suit.
