Happy Monday friends! My kids are back to school, the house is thankfully quiet, and I'm ready to create! I love having them home for the summer but it puts a serious dent in my productivity having them here and running in and out when I work from home.
Today I'm thrilled to be guest designing for The Stamp Market again with this build your own plaid card featuring the Just Checking In Stamp Set. With several sizes of plaid to choose from, you can create all kinds of amazing plaid backgrounds!
On a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" piece of smooth white cardstock, I stamped the large "hello" greeting from the Just Checking In Stamp Set at an angle using black dye ink and the MISTI and the Creative Corners guides to get perfect placement. I masked off the large greeting with post it tape and stamped the second to smallest plaid from the Just Checking In Stamp Set using Picked Raspberry, Spiced Marmalade, and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Inks. I removed the mask so it appears that there is a plaid "paper" along the bottom of the card as shown.
I stamped another sentiment from the Just Checking In Stamp Set on black cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossed the greeting with white embossing powder. I cut the sentiment into a thin strip and adhered it underneath the "hello" at an angle.
A flower and leaves from the Flower Market Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using Versamark Ink and heat embossing with white embossing powder. I colored in the images with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen for gorgeous watercolored-looking flowers. The images were die cut with the coordinating Flower Market Dies and adhered to the card as shown.
The design was finished with a scattering of Nuvo Crystal Drops in Carnation Pink, Ripened Pumpkin, Apple Green, and Morning Dew.
