Hello, hello! I'm very excited to be guest posting today for Elizabeth. I've created a little tutorial for you on how I created this card:
Elizabeth was so kind to send me this fabulous Thoughtful Tidings set from Close to My Heart to work with.
**note from Elizabeth this stamp set was a previous stamp of the month and is no longer available. However, there are many fun stamps you could use from your stash. Need some new stamps? Check out the sale going on this month - buy two stamps and get one free only until the end of June **
It is such a fabulous set and the quality is outstanding, too! So, here's what you'll need to make this card:
I used some Fresh Inks in limeade, pool, strawberry, melon and mango, but you can use whatever you have on hand. I have a standard white card, some post-its, the Thoughtful Tidings set and the Create-a-Plaid stamp set by Clear & Simple Stamps.
Now stamp your sentiment on a separate piece of cardstock. Look at the perfect impression this stamp gives. Then cut your sentiment out and adhere to your card. Here's another look at the finished product:
I had so much fun with this card that I wanted to try one more card with the same colors and technique.
I masked off the top portion of the card front, stamped the plaid pattern and die cut the sentiment opening using the fillable frames #11 die by Papertrey Ink.
I used another sentiment from that same Thoughtful Tidings set and tied some white floss with an aqua button. There's endless possibilities with masking and creating plaid patterns. I hope you will give it a try! Thanks so much to Elizabeth for the fun stamp set and fun opportunity to share my little tutorial with you! Hope you have a great weekend:)
